I’m now on the third installment of my novel about Joey Fingers. That’s my Mafia rapist name for creepy former Vice President Joe Biden.
Somebody in the Democrat party put Joey “Fingers” Biden on the hot seat. And he must wonder how he got here.
Since when do Democrat women not keep their mouths shut when it comes to sexual misconduct by powerful Leftist men? Weinstein went decades getting feminists to sell out the sisterhood. Only recently was he thrown under the bus. The politically-motivated #MeToo movement finally turned on Weinstein, when the time came to elevate a woman to the office of the presidency. Had that not occurred, Weinstein would still be a Hollywood mogul and Jeffrey Epstein would be alive.
Still, Biden is the man. At least he thought. And isn’t that what Democrats want us to believe?
Biden rose from the ashes to win (maybe) the Democrats’ presidential nomination. He defeated the largest field of challengers in presidential history. OK, so the field was stocked with Leftist losers. Still, Biden sort of defeated them, if watching them defeat themselves counts.
So why these accusations now?
Frankly, as I predicted in what seems like eons ago, Biden is not the consensus choice of Democrats. Moreso, Biden is the Democrats’ default candidate.
Hard to believe, given all the head-to-head polling that had Biden trouncing Trump. With those numbers, Biden deserved to be the favorite, if you actually believe the numbers. Apparently, somebody doesn’t. Thus, powerful Democrats appear to be on a seek and destroy mission.
Tara Reade was not a setup.
That’s what Democrats do to Republicans. Like the bimbo explosion Democrats tried on Trump. That culminated with Stormy Daniels. And the Democrats’ attempt to get Trump sadly sent Stormy Daniels back to the stripper pole.
Again, Tara Reade is legit. Even so, in a world where you are the presumptive candidate, Reade doesn’t make page 16 of the sports page. Put another way, if Obama had a “Tara Read”–OK, a “Terrence Reade”–back in 2008, that dude would have been whacked.
But not Tara Reade.
Reade’s story has gained steam. So much so, the story finally forced Biden to address it. I wrote that Biden addressing the story gave it credibility of sorts. At the very least, the idea that Biden might have done this (he did), puts the Democrats in a quandary.
So while Biden addressing Reade’s allegations was bad, what he did afterward is worse.
Look at this interview where Biden provides excuses as to why he doesn’t believe he needs to open his Senate records for scrutiny:
Joe Biden’s interview only raised more questions about why he refuses to release his Senate records at the University of Delaware.
His answers were nonsensical.

The heat is on
“No, it is not true. I’m saying unequivocally it never, never happened and it didn’t. It never happened.”
Remember the rule regarding Democrats: they speak opposite of what they actually say. Thus, Biden admits to the Tara Reade allegations.
The MSNBC appearance marked the first time that Biden has addressed the accusations directly since Reade reemerged last month.
And there you have the fatal blow. Denial. It’s not just a river in Egypt.
Reade worked for Biden’s congressional office between 1992 and 1993. She came forward last April to accuse Biden of unwanted touching.
Leftists claim that Reade changed her story, but this is false.
At the time, she told a local California news outlet that she had filed a complaint noting the misconduct with the Senate’s personnel office when it purportedly occurred. In March of this year she claimed there was more to the story. Reade added that Biden had pushed her up against a wall, forcibly kissed her, and penetrated her with his finger sometime in 1993.
More and more evidence has mounted against Biden, thus the official and personal denial. And Reade isn’t running from an investigation or further scrutiny. Quite the contrary.
Reade has sought to make public the sexual harassment complaint she allegedly filed in 1993. Former Biden staffers claim no such document exists. So Reade doubled down.
Reade insists the complaint exist. And she believes her allegations may be buried in the thousands of Senate documents Biden donated to the University of Delaware in 2011. Some in the media agree with Reade.
It didn’t help that Biden’s campaign staff accessed the papers after Biden declared his run for the presidency. Were they trying to preempt any possible issues that might arise from Tara Reade? Or is it worse?
In a recent interview, Biden alluded that the Trump campaign could use some of Biden’s conversations with Putin (or other world leaders) as campaign fodder. Given Biden’s threat to extort Ukraine, shouldn’t Biden be required to open those records?
But Biden’s protects his records like a prisoner protects his tray of food.
Biden released a statement prior to his MSNBC appearance. In the statement, he insisted his Senate papers did not hold the key to Reade’s allegation.
“There is a clear, critical part of this story that can be verified. The former staffer has said she filed a complaint back in 1993. But she does not have a record of this alleged complaint. The papers from my Senate years that I donated to the University of Delaware do not contain personnel files.”
“There is only one place a complaint of this kind could be — the National Archives,” Biden said, adding that “the National Archives is where the records are kept” from the Senate Office of Fair Employment Practices, where Reade would have filed her complaint while working on his staff.
“I am requesting that the secretary of the Senate ask the Archives to identify any record of the complaint she alleges she filed and make available to the press any such document,” the former vice president said. “If there was ever any such complaint, the record will be there.”
According to sources, The National Archives would not contain the information as Biden claims. And Biden’s insistence that the information is there only lends to more speculation that he is hiding something.
The National Archives confirmed that the organization does not possess records from the Senate Fair Employment Practices offices. Instead, those records are governed by rules crafted by the Senate, which state that they cannot be made public until 50 years after a complaint has been made in order to ensure the privacy of individuals impacted.
You can bet the Trump campaign and others will demand that Biden lift this restriction. And you can bet that Biden will ignore those demands.
