Tenth Biden Accuser Comes Forward, DNC Releases Rules for Replacing Him
Presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden looks like he’s toast. In addition to Tara Reade, the woman accusing Biden of a 1993 sexual assault, nine other women have now accused Biden of sexual harassment, inappropriate touching, hair sniffing and overall lecherous behavior.
To paraphrase Joe Biden himself, those women all deserve to be heard! This could leave the nation in an unprecedented situation because Biden is the presumptive nominee. What happens if Biden drops out?
First, who are all of these women accusing Biden of behaving the way that Democrats accused Brett Kavanaugh of behaving around women?
The accusers are all known Democrats. Eight of them spoke out against Biden last year, early on in the primary season. Hair-Sniffing-Gate was an event in which many of the uncomfortable women spoke out about Joe Biden sneaking up behind them, clutching them by the shoulders, and snuffling his nose around in their hair while he holds them in place. We’ve all seen the photos and videos of Biden doing this to women and kids.
A couple of the victims of Hair-Sniffing-Gate were ones we actually didn’t know about. Like the sexual assault survivor who says Biden put his hand on her thigh under the table for a really long time during a 2016 fundraising dinner for… sexual assault survivors.
Also, writer DJ Hill told the New York Times last year that Biden go so handsy with her at another 2016 event that her husband nearly decked Biden, who was the vice president at the time.
A new alleged victim who has come forward was Eva Murry, who told Law & Crime magazine about her unwanted encounter with Biden. When she met Biden at a Delaware fundraiser in 2008, Biden asked her how old she was. She said she was fourteen, and Biden replied:
“Fourteen? You’re very well-endowed for 14!”
Murry says Biden spent the rest of the evening staring at her chest and making her feel creeped out and uncomfortable.
“It wasn’t Biden’s words alone that made me so uncomfortable, it was the look, the tone, the whole general vibe was off.”
She deserves to be heard, right, Joe Biden?
None of this should surprise us about Joe Biden. He is the man, after all, who had female Secret Service agents threatening to commit suicide if they couldn’t be reassigned from the vice-presidential protection detail. Biden has an indoor pool at his mansion, and he insists on swimming in the nude every day. And he’s apparently not shy if you’re a Secret Service agent who is forced to be near Biden as part of your job.
So, what happens if Joe Biden gets #MeToo’ed right out of the 2020 race after his decades of using a hands-on approach to women comes to light?
Although it’s never happened in US history, there are rules and bylaws in place in the event that a presidential nominee dies or drops out of the race before the general election in November. In that unprecedented situation, Democrat voters are taken entirely out of the equation.
Under the rules, the Democrat National Committee (DNC) would call a meeting and its 16 members would vote on a replacement candidate to run against Donald Trump. Since we know who all 16 of those DNC leaders are, it’s possible to predict who they would support to replace Joe Biden. A simple majority of 9 votes from DNC members would be enough for an individual to suddenly become the Democrat Party’s 2020 nominee.
DNC Chairman Tom Perez, Vice Chairman Ken Martin, Vice Chairwoman Grace Meng, Secretary Jason Rae, Associate Chairman Jaime Harrison, Campaign Committee Chair Cheri Bustos, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer all supported Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders in 2016.
That’s nine votes. We don’t know how the other seven officers of the DNC would vote, but Hillary Clinton has a simple majority locked in at the DNC already if Joe Biden is forced to drop out of the race.
But… that rule only goes into effect if Biden is the official nominee, which he is not at this point. Biden has 1,406 delegates, leaving him 585 votes short of the party’s nomination. If Biden drops out right now, Bernie is back in the race and leaving the DNC in a tailspin.
And if Biden keeps running, the DNC has to promote a candidate who has been credibly accused of sexual assault and harassment by a multitude of women.
Either way… it’s pretty hilarious!
