[SEE UPDATE BELOW]
Former Vice President Joe Biden has done an abysmal job neutralizing stories that could damage his presidential hopes. His son, Hunter, who has no experience in the energy sector, allegedly sold access to top Obama officials in 2014, while sitting on the board for a Ukrainian company while daddy Biden was spearheading efforts to root out corruption at the time. Now, he’s been slapped with a serious sexual assault allegation from a former Senate aide, Tara Reade, who alleges the then-Delaware senator penetrated her with his fingers in 1993. And Reade is not alone. There are scores of women who have come forward to describe what could only be called sexual harassment, with Joey being handsy and smelling their hair. Now, we have a woman who alleges that Biden complimented her breasts when she was 14 years old. This isn’t an old story either, like from the 1970s. This incident reportedly occurred at a fundraiser in 2008 (via Law and Crime):
My classmate, Eva, has just come forward with her story about an inappropriate exchange with Joe Biden when she was fourteen. This has been incredibly hard for her to do. I commend her for her bravery, and for helping other women potentially come forward. https://t.co/0VAnXNBjXl— Nicole Alexander Fisher (@_nalexander) May 1, 2020
A woman says she was sexually harassed by presumptive Democratic Party presidential nominee Joe Biden when she was 14 years old.
The woman, Eva Murry, told Law&Crime that Biden complimented her on the size of her breasts at the First State Gridiron Dinner & Show in 2008, a long-running roast of and party for politicians, journalists and prominent business figures held each year in Delaware. Murry says she remembers the event occurring sometime around May of that year.
One friend and her sister said that Murry told her details of the alleged incident more or less immediately after it happened. Four other friends of Murry’s said they were told about the incident, with the same details, between two and three years after it originally occurred.
Law&Crime interviewed Murry, her sister, and those friends over the course of multiple days. Murry is the niece of former Republican Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell and said she occasionally received school credit for attending such political events. O’Donnell was running a long-shot campaign against Biden at the time that the alleged sexual harassment incident occurred.
According to Gridiron Dinner Secretary Cathy Klocko, the roast is held the first Saturday of every May, which would place the 2008 event on May 3 of that year. Klocko went on to note that until recently the event was secretive and did not release information such as guest lists or photographs of the event.
“I remember walking into the lobby and being in awe of all the people in such fancy clothes,” Murry said in an interview. “Our two parties of people gravitated towards each other and everyone started saying their hellos. When it was Biden and my aunt’s turn to say hello he quickly turned to me and asked how old I was. I replied with my age and he replied with the comment ‘Fourteen? You’re very well endowed for 14!’ I was confused but it was definitely weird, he looked me up and down and hovered his eyes on my chest so I had some clue [about] the notion of his comment but didn’t fully understand at the time. We quickly separated from his area after the encounter.”
The publication noted that Murray told her friends, Aileen Callaghan, Katielynn Weaver, and Victoria Anstey, about this incident. Eva’s older sister, Jenna, told Law and Crime that her younger sister detailed this creepy encounter to her a week or so after the dinner. Again, there's more corroborating evidence with this story than during the entire Brett Kavanaugh witch hunt.
UPDATE: Well, there appears to be a new development. Of course, the Biden campaign has denied strongly that this ever happened. And there appears to be a timeline issue. Joe Biden was not at this Gridiron dinner. Yet, Murry’s sister and other friends insist she’s telling the truth:
The new revelations cast doubt on a significant piece of a story originally reported here based on seven original sources; six of whom agreed to go on the record and one of whom did not. Despite the evidence from the Biden campaign, Murry and several of her original corroborating sources maintain that she is telling the truth (others we were not able to contact again by the time of publication).
“I don’t think Eva would have gotten the person wrong,” Murry’s older sister Jenna Murphy told Law&Crime when asked if her sister had a case of mistaken identity at the dinner that year. “She named him really specifically at the time and saw him several times after and recognized him as the person who made the comment. If anything, maybe she could have confused the date, but I really don’t think she could have gotten the person wrong.”
The elder Murry insisted that her sister wasn’t mistaken.
“To provide context for my certainty, my aunt Chris got our whole family involved in her work, so both my grandparents, my aunt Jenny, Jenny’s wife, and even on one notable occasion our entire extended family, went to campaign events with her from well before 2008 up through 2010,” she continued. “All of those people were aware of the story of the Biden comment told by both my aunt and sister so a case of mistaken identity doesn’t seem likely.”
Four of Murry’s friends say that they were told about the incident. One said she was told about it around the time it happened. Two more said they were told about it in 2010. Three of those friends agreed to speak on the record.
“She was telling me about the event and explained what happened,” Murry’s friend Victoria Anstey told Law&Crime. “I remember being so shocked. I didn’t know who Biden was or anything. Just [that] she said he was an ‘older man’ was enough for me to not like the situation.”
Law&Crime verified Murry’s and Anstey’s identities by obtaining their driver’s licenses.
“Eva is telling the truth,” she added.
