Tara Reade, the woman who has accused Joe Biden of sexual assault, has been largely ignored by the media.
That might be about to change.
A video has surfaced of a woman calling into the Larry King show in 1993, discussing the issue, and it is reportedly Reade’s mother.
This would seem to confirm Reade’s claims. At the very least, it makes them more credible.
FOX News reports:
Clip surfaces of Biden accuser Tara Reade’s mother phoning into ‘Larry King Live’ in 1993 alluding to claim
A resurfaced clip on “Larry King Live” in 1993 appears to show the mother of Tara Reade — who has accused Joe Biden of past sexual assault while in the Senate — alluding to “problems” her daughter faced while working as a staffer for the then-Delaware senator.
In a telephone interview with Fox News on Friday night, Reade confirmed that her mother called into the show. Biden’s presidential campaign has adamantly denied Reade’s allegations but the video could be cited as evidence supporting Reade’s allegation – even though her late mother, in the clip, does not specifically refer to a sexual assault claim.
“San Luis Obispo, California, hello,” King began.
“Yes, hello. I’m wondering what a staffer would do besides go to the press in Washington? My daughter has just left there, after working for a prominent senator, and could not get through with her problems at all, and the only thing she could have done was go to the press, and she chose not to do it out of respect for him,” the caller said.

This is big.
This is the exact transcript of the call:
In August '93, the month Tara Reade left Biden's office, a woman called the Larry King show saying her daughter had problems at a prominent senator's office but did not want to go to the press about it. The woman was Reade's late mother. https://t.co/KHpqDlrpOG pic.twitter.com/9SnX6P6gI7

This might force the media to report on the allegations.
