Huh. Democrats are actually going with the talking point that Blasey Ford has more corroborating evidence than Reade. Best of luck with that!

Did everyone sleep through 2018?
Good arguments in this

All it took for #MeToo to become a danger was one allegation against Joe Biden—hilarious, sad, and predictable Democrats, Tara Reade and the #MeToo Trap

BIDEN DEFENDERS WEIGH IN: "Personally, I’d sleep better if the party had a different, more vibrant candidate."
This column is tendentious and disingenuous with all its disclaimers. "That doesn't mean it didn't happen," multiple times, accumulates into the assertion that it did not, or amounts to a constant drumbeat of innuendo to that effect.
