Apparently Tara Reade's dad wrote a novel with a sex scene that seems very familiar

This is, to say the least, curious.

on edit: I'm trying to obfuscate the link a little as it's graphic and I don't want people to be upset...

24. Technical advice

Instead of pasting the URL (which would auto-display), write some text and use DU's "link" function to link the text to the URL.

Then what people would see is linked text that they could click on. That should be fine as long as you describe what's at the link and why some might want to avoid it.

10. Yes - Biden is being swiftboated


so here are the facts:

Tara Reade has written positively about Biden for decades
Memory changes over time
Her father wrote a book that has a passage that matches her accusation
There are no police records
She could have been upset in 1993 for any number of reasons if she did tell other people SOMETHING. If Biden was touchy feely, that was not a crime in 1993 and why did she write positive letters for decades on Biden.

there is nothing here accept an attempt to swiftboat another Democratic candidate.

now lets talk about proven accusations on trump including his words on a tape about grabbing women by the puss*

18. that is nothing like her story

similarities: both are fiction, both involve fingers up a skirt. That's it.

I was going to say both involve fingers in a vagina, but I can't actually tell which orifice is involved in the book.

Does Sleepy Kyle think he's helping by making shit up? Don't we have enough people making shit up?

(is it "word for word" because "skirt" and "fingers" are both words?)

50. it is nothing like her story

her story, which I don't find credible, is that Senator Biden pushed her up against a wall in a hallway, stuck her fingers in her vagina, and then said "I thought you like me" and "you mean nothing to me."

The circled paragraph is about a woman who flirted with a guy in a bar and then had consensual sex in a hotel room after he stuck her fingers into an unspecified orifice.

Her father wrote a book with a cheesy sex scene in it, but I can't figure out what that has to do with her story.

40. "Published..." yes, technically, but "self-published" would be more accurate.

AuthorHouse is a vanity press headquartered in my town.
They'll publish pretty much anything one pays them to publish.
I'm agnostic on whether there's any connection to Tara Reade's allegations, but after one glance at that sample, I wasn't a bit surprised that this is an AuthorHouse book.
I realize you're just answering the question about the date of publication. No knock on you and I'm sure you're aware of this publication model. I just wanted to put this out there.

If he wrote it after, taking a story his daughter may have told him in which she described herself as a victim, and he turned it into a sexual fantasy that became part of a book? I'm even more creeped out than I was before!

13. Not sure if this proves much...

It would have been more damning had the book been released before the supposed allegations occurred but it looks like it was written in 1998 (conflicting reports on this but after the incident), years after the event.

One could reason the father was inspired to write about the events after being informed of this by his daughter. It might lack overall tact but it doesn't prove much except that the story likely existed within the family for a minute.

15. Proof is impossible. But it does not exactly enhance her credibility.

And honestly...what kind of father would incorporate the assault of his daughter into what appears to be a consensual sex scene?
That would be a pretty monstrous thing to do.

20. She also claims her father abused her.

So, who knows? It's something that could be spun by either side. It'd be more damning if the book had been written before the events - not after.

That a father would write a scene like that of he heard a story of sexual assault from his daughter?

What kind of sick fuck would do that?

It might not be impossible, but it's another of a LONG string of "not impossible, but suspicious" circumstances.

To me, her claims fall well below the credibility threshold, and I am generally inclined to believe accusations of sexual assault.
