Appearing on Democracy Now, former neighbor of Tara Reade Lynda LaCasse spoke out.
LaCasse describes herself as a Democrat and Biden supporter.
Per DemocracyNow, Lynda LaCasse was once the neighbor of Tara Reade, a former Joe Biden staffer who has accused the Democratic presidential candidate of sexually assaulting her in 1993.
Biden has publicly denied that the assault happened, but LaCasse corroborates Reade’s account, saying that the two had discussed the assault in their apartment complex in the mid-’90s.
“We were talking about violence, because I had experienced violence myself. She started telling me about Joe Biden and what he had done,” says LaCasse. “Her truth needs to be told. I believed her back then … and I believe her now.”
LaCasse is also a self-identified Democrat and Biden supporter. “It is a little harder now after this allegation,” she says. “I am struggling with it.”
