No Minister


Over the weekend the controversy over the then Senator Joe Biden’s alleged sexual assault of Tara Reade surfaced again with the discovery of a video from 1993 where her (late) mother called ‘Larry King Live’ to complain about her daughters experiences on Capital Hill.    The video backs Reade’s claim that she alerted her family as to what happened.

Whatever, the stakes have now been upped with Peter Dauo, a prominent Democrat and one-time key Hillary Clinton advisor and backer who switched camps to support Bernie Sanders, calling for Biden to end his presidential bid and withdraw from the race.    He called on Democrats to take a principled stand and not run a candidate accused of sexual assault against Trump who has faced numerous sexual assault allegations … ‘We lose all moral authority if we embrace the lesser of two accused rapists’.

Explosive stuff.    The unpredictability of politics is perhaps best summed up by Harold Macmillan (Super Mac) when he said ‘events dear boy, events’ when responding to a question as to what was most likely to blow the government off course.

Question … Is this Joe Biden’s #MeToo moment event?
