Former neighbor to Tara Reade, Lynda LaCasse has recently come out to say that she and Reade had multiple conversations between 1995 and 1996 about how former Vice President Joe Biden had sexually assaulted Reade in 1993.
“This happened, and I know it did because I remember talking about it,” said LaCasse while remembering her conversations she had with Reade.
Over a month ago, former Joe Biden staffer Tara Reade made a credible sexual assault allegation against Biden, stating that he had sexually assaulted her in 1993 while she was working under him as a staffer.
Reade explains that she was told by a supervisor to bring Biden his gym bag in the basement of a Capitol Hill office building. When she arrived, Biden allegedly pushed her against a wall and penetrated her with his fingers.
“He was whispering to me and trying to kiss me at the same time, and he was saying, ‘Do you want to go somewhere else?’” she said. “I remember wanting to say stop, but I don’t know if I said it out loud or if I just thought it. I was kind of frozen up.”
Reade continued by explaining that when she pulled away, Biden, a senator at the time, looked “shocked and surprised,” and said, “Come on, man, I heard you liked me.”
While speaking with Business Insider, LaCasse explained that she remembered Reade becoming emotional when she told her about the assault.
“I remember her saying, here was this person that she was working for and she idolized him,” said LaCasse. “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.”
“She was crying,” LaCasse continued. “She was upset. And the more she talked about it, the more she started crying. I remember saying that she needed to file a police report.”
“I don’t remember all the details,” LaCasse admitted, but asserted that she, “remember the skirt. I remember the fingers. I remember she was devastated.”
LaCasse, who does happen to be a Biden supporter, is the first person to confirm Reade’s sexual assault allegations against Biden.
“I personally am a Democrat, a very strong Democrat,” LaCasse said. “And I’m for Biden, regardless. But still I have to come out and say this.”
