29. She claims to be a Democrat and Biden supporter

In an interview with Business Insider on Monday, Lynda LaCasse, who lived next door to Reade at the time, said she recalls Reade tearfully recounting the story of the alleged assault when they were neighbors in 1993.

"This happened, and I know it did because I remember talking about it," LaCasse said.

"I remember her saying, here was this person that she was working for and she idolized him," LaCasse continued. "And he kind of put her up against a wall. And he put his hand up her skirt and he put his fingers inside her. She felt like she was assaulted, and she really didn't feel there was anything she could do."

LaCasse also identified herself as a Democrat in the story and said she planned to vote for Biden for president.

This part I find odd.

Reade says she filed a complaint with the human resources office in the Senate about the allegations of inappropriate touching but did not file a police report at the time.

Media outlets have not been able to locate the human resources complaint. Reade filed a complaint with the Washington, D.C. police department earlier this month.


As I pointed out on another thread, 1993 was about the time Senator Bob Packwood was bounced from the Senate for sexual misbehavior.

The year before that in 1992 my Senator Brock Adams (D-WA) decided not to pursue re-election because of accusations by one female acquaintance that he drugged and molested her. The woman had filed a report with the DC police.

Patty Murray went on to win election that year to that seat.

My point in all this is to show given the circumstances if Tara Reade had made a complaint to human resources back then it likely would have been taken seriously.
