That sure was an awesome campaign ad DeGette wrote for Joe Biden’s presidential campaign now running under the “opinion” header in the Colorado Sun.
DeGette’s glowing endorsement of Biden stretches for 17 paragraphs encompassing more than 600 words about his great leadership skills and commitment to climate change, his big heart …
It feels like DeGette missed something, but we can’t quite put our finger on it.
Yes. That’s it.
Biden is accused of sexually assaulting Tara Reade when she worked for him in the Senate as his intern coordinator.
Reade, now 56, says then-Sen. Biden put his hands up her skirt, into her underwear, and onto her person without her permission.
We expected DeGette to defend the victim and demand an investigation as passionately as she did during Supreme Court Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings.
But the Coloradan neglected to even mention the sexual assault allegation.
Oh, what a hypocritical web we weave when first we practice to demand all sexual victims should be heard except those who dare accuse a Democrat.
Christine Blasey Ford is a hero. Her letter to @SenJudiciary Chairman @ChuckGrassley shows selflessness and willingness to sacrifice to tell her truth to power. His reply today promises a fair hearing, but with a veiled attack for not being braver sooner. That’s “respect?” pic.twitter.com/3cRGRSc8Ih

Not only is the Colorado media giving DeGette a pass on this one, the Sun gave her a platform to create a whole new kind of shame for women who say they’ve been sexually assaulted — the cloak of invisibility.
