Biden Accuser, Tara Reade, Allegedly Stole from Non-Profit Organization - The Medium

Last edited Sun Apr 26, 2020, 10:36 PM - Edit history (1)

Since Alexandra Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegations against former Vice President Joe Biden have come to light, careful examination of her account unveils more questions than answers.

Three weeks ago, we reported on the many contradictions in Reade’s account, as well as the extreme changes in her attitude toward the former vice president. She has evolved from a woman who repeatedly praised Joe Biden for work he’s done to help end sexual assault in America, in 2017, to someone who now says Biden sexually assaulted her in 1993.

Now we’ve obtained new information concerning Tara Reade’s character, from a non-profit organization based in Watsonville, California, called Pregnant Mare Rescue (PMR). Lynn Hummer, Founder/President of the highly-rated horse sanctuary that’s committed to rescuing pregnant mares and orphan foals from abuse, tells us that Tara Reade (McCabe) volunteered at her rescue for a couple of years (from 2014–2016). During this time, Hummer alleges that Reade “stole from her nonprofit, lied, and created stories to obtain sympathy and money.”

We’ve also obtained receipts and emails that back up many of Hummer’s claims.


A very interesting read. More at: THE MEDIUM

The Rwing Liars are all over this shite from Reade.

Tara Reade's public incident report does not mention Joe Biden by name.

Examining Tara Reade’s Sexual Assault Allegation Against Joe Biden

On Thursday, Ms. Reade filed a report with the Washington, D.C., police, saying she was the victim of a sexual assault in 1993; the public incident report, provided to The Times by Ms. Reade and the police, does not mention Mr. Biden by name, but she said the complaint was about him. Ms. Reade said she filed the report to give herself an additional degree of safety from potential threats.

Filing a false police report may be punishable by a fine and imprisonment.

the organization didn't report the alleged theft, it's because the last thing a non-profit needs is bad publicity. If donors feel their donations aren't secure, then they will likely stop giving.
This woman is obviously being paid off by -- probably -- the GOP, or by a Trump-supporting superpac. She's obviously in need of $$$.

16. The gay guy who claimed he had sex with Obama is running for mayor of a Florida town

Tara Reade is this year's Larry Sinclair.

https://www.lgbtqnation.com/2018/11/gay-guy-claimed-sex-obama-running-mayor-florida-town/

Convicted felon Larry Sinclair is running to be the next mayor of Cocoa, Florida. Strangely enough, the gay man’s ridiculous claims that he had sex with former-President Barack Obama and the national ridicule he endured hasn’t been an issue in the race.

Sinclair is running against two Democrats in the nonpartisan race and neither of his opponents have purposefully ignored Sinclair’s criminal past or fantastical claim of “outing” the former president.

“I do believe that the voters are smarter than the candidates give them credit for,” one of the opposing candidates, Cocoa City Council member Clarence Whipple Jr., told Florida Today. “But I’m not going to send stuff out on it. I’m not questioning his rehabilitation.”

* * *
Sinclair became infamous after he held a press conference at the National Press Club to claim he had smoked crack with Obama and had sex with him twice in 1999. Sinclair’s outrageous claims without any proof made him a national laughing stock, but spurred even more far right conspiracy theories after being picked up by outlets like Alex Jones’ InfoWars.

38. Let me make it easy for you.

She is just a grifter and obviously not a skilled one. Well, maybe her fake GoFundMe account is bringing some success but probably not for much longer. I have been trying to recall how grifters used to grift before social media. I guess they just hung out in bars.

Oh, I just remembered something. My mother worked in a church office in the 60s and 70s that was open regular office hours five days a week. They had a lot of grifters stop by, particularly on Mondays because they knew the Sunday offering was being counted. It was a large church and several of the members were police and sheriff department employees. Those uniformed officers spent a lot of time just hanging out around the church and not because they needed to pray or practice the organ. Boy did they have a lot of stories abut the "stories" they heard.

jftr - If anyone had legitimate needs they were addressed. It was a very generous church group.

You mileage may vary, but I think it is important to take such claims seriously. Rather than attack the claimaint, it's best to attack the claim.

Since Kavanagh was being confirmed and the stature of limitation had not expired, an FBI investigation was reasonable...of course it was a bullshit investigation.

64. A Difference Without A Distinction, Sir

When the credibility and truth of a charge is at issue, the character of the person laying the charge must be assessed. In taking stock of a person's character, that person's whole past is relevant. A record of thieving and lying is quite proper to bring forward, and is ample reason to disregard any charge a person makes.

You are correct this is not up for debate, it is just that you are on the wrong side of the settled issue.

44. Four years on now and some don't fully realize

how quickly the right learned to weaponize MeToo. It sucks because women should be believed when they make these claims yet these type operations only serve to undercut legitimate allegations.

46. #MeToo

 

has absolutely been weaponized. We've seen multiple attempts to use it against prominent men on the left, or just perceived enemies of Trump.

I think that Reade was likely fired, or just not retained from her internship with Bidens office. It was in August, so wouldn't that be about the time an internship would be ending? I think she was upset that she wasn't offered an acutal job and started back the making up stories of why it happened. Initially it was that there were "problems' in his office and she was being treated unfairly by the staff. That's what she told her mother who then called into a Larry King show that about about Senate staff issues. Then over time it morphed. When other women started saying Biden made them uncomfortable she jumped in and said that's why she was fired. Then when that didn't hurt him she dialed it up some to the current story. Her story keeps changing because she keeps changing it.

Why does she have multiple twitter accounts? Why is she deleting articles from Medium? What's up with all of the information on lawsuits and legal problems that are coming up about her? Why are there multiple stories about why she moved from Washington?

The only people who buy this story are the people who REALLY want it to be true. That's the Rose Twitter crowd and the far right.

58. Agree.

I tried to be fair to Reade. I read her accusations and the information she claims support her accusations. I don't find her credible.

75. Tara Reade Inventory

Admirable Traits

- Donated 2 years of her valuable time to help out a charity she believed in
- Told the truth about her ex-husband's abusive behavior
- Wanted to save her horse's life
- Money was clearly NOT her primary focus
- Told the truth about having worked for Biden. (The notion that she would have said something about the abuse if it had happened is completely unfounded.)
- Her resume seems accurate

Inadmirable Traits

- Was unwilling to pay the price for being so focused on ideals and not enough on financial stability
- Was willing to place unauthorized charges to get her horse taken care of. This could never have worked out well
- Possibly did something shady to get a prize she wanted (although we haven't heard her side of this story).
- Behaved as if PMR owed her something, even though she had willingly volunteered to help them

By all accounts, Tara's character is far from perfect. But is she the one who is 'on trial' here? Is she the one who is interviewing for the job of President of the United States? The focus on this article (although the author appears to have a legitimate gripe) is consistent with the character assassination a woman faces when she dares speak out about sexual assault or rape. It does not prove a thing, except perhaps that she is someone with imperfect behavior.

76. Do you know her? She's not on trial. Her ever changing story is under examination.

Please add

- lied about experiences with a politician, without regard for the impact on the nation, the politician, or his family
to the In-admirable traits category.

And, read the story about her 'valuable time' donation as linked above.

I don't care if she filed for bankruptcy, didn't have much money, was or was not assaulted by her X husband.

I do care about her integrity as it relates to the ever changing story she's telling regarding Joe Biden.
