Joe Biden’s campaign is floundering.
Despite the Fake News Media running cover for him, Tara Reade’s credible sexual assault allegations have caused critical damage.
Now, Biden just torpedoed his campaign with this statement.
Liberals were outraged when Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos announced she was revising Obama’s Title IX sexual assault guidelines for colleges and universities.
When the Obama administration put these rules into place in 2011, campuses were turned into Soviet-style systems where male students found themselves considered guilty until proven innocent.
These students were unable to cross-examine their accusers or even demand universities produce evidence against them.
Secretary DeVos took a necessary step to restore due process and allow students to defend themselves, in addition to narrowing the Obama administration’s loose definition of sexual harassment.
“Too many students have lost access to their education because their school inadequately responded when a student filed a complaint of sexual harassment or sexual assault,” DeVos said in a statement. “This new regulation requires schools to act in meaningful ways to support survivors of sexual misconduct, without sacrificing important safeguards to ensure a fair and transparent process. We can and must continue to fight sexual misconduct in our nation’s schools, and this rule makes certain that fight continues.”
Biden saw an opportunity to appeal to young voters and immediately issued a statement promising to undo these critical due process protections.
“It’s wrong,” Biden ranted. “And, it will be put to a quick end in January 2021, because as president, I’ll be right where I always have been throughout my career — on the side of survivors, who deserve to have their voices heard, their claims taken seriously and investigated, and their rights upheld.”
The only problem? Under Obama’s standards for sexual assault that Biden claims to support on college and university campuses, Biden would be found guilty of Tara Reade’s allegations.
