Wa Examiner: A law firm cut ties with Biden accuser Tara Reade.
Douglas Wigdor said on Friday his firm is no longer representing Reade, who alleges that Joe Biden sexually assaulted and harassed her in 1993, when she was a staffer in his Senate office.
“Our firm no longer represents Tara Reade. Our decision, made on May 20, is by no means a reflection on whether then-Senator Biden sexually assaulted Ms. Reade,” Wigdor said in a press release. “On that point, our view — which is the same view held by the majority of Americans, according to a Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll — has not changed. We also believe that to a large extent Ms. Reade has been subjected to a double standard in terms of the media coverage she has received.”
Wigdor, who represented six people who accused disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual abuse, said neither he nor his firm would provide further comment on Reade’s situation but did criticize the media’s treatment of his former client. more
