If there’s one thing we know about outspoken Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, it’s that she doesn’t shy away from a controversy.
We all know about her anti-Semitic comments and her alleged extramarital affair… that’s enough to make most honest Americans cringe.
But Omar just said something that many people can get behind… and it’s terrible news for Joe Biden’s presidential campaign (and reputation!)
According to a report from Newsmax, Omar BELIEVES Tara Reade’s claims of sexual assault against Biden, and, if it was up to her, Biden would NOT be the party’s candidate.
“I do believe Reade,” Omar told the U.K.’s Sunday Times. “Justice can be delayed, but should never be denied.”
Reade, a former Senate aide to Biden, accused Biden of sexually assaulting her in a corridor on Capitol Hill in 1993. Biden has denied the allegations.
Omar did walk back her comments (a bit), tweeting that she would vote for Biden, despite her comments to the Sunday Times. She said the interview took place May 6.
Omar tweeted the following:
“Believing survivors is consistent with my values. Yes, I endorsed against Biden, and I didn’t pick him as our nominee. With that said, in this interview I did on May 6th, we talked about that, and quotes aren’t always in context. I will vote for him and help him defeat Trump.”
She also added:
“We can’t fend off perceived attacks with attacks on others. This is the most important election cycle of our lifetimes, and we aren’t going to have a chance if we don’t spend our energy in mobilizing and building enthusiasm against Trump. That’s the goal we should all be united on.”
Regardless, this is not a good look for Biden as he tries to sway progressive voters that flock to people like Omar… and that spells bad news for Biden in the upcoming election.
