In an opinion piece on Medium on Monday, Rep. Ayanna Pressley laments the lack of justice for sex assault survivors but rejects the “false choice that my party and our nominee [Joe Biden] can’t address the allegations at hand and defeat the occupant of the White House.”
“I’m here for an uncomfortable conversation,” Pressley wrote, but a “necessary” one, regarding the Tara Reade allegation of sexual assault against Biden. “I am a survivor. I am an elected official. I am not new to watching survivors bare their souls, and I am not new to being offered false choices in politics,” she pontificated.
Stressing that “we are in the throes of an election of the greatest consequence,” Pressley asserted, I reject the false choice that my party and our nominee can’t address the allegations at hand and defeat the occupant of the White House”
“What does an authentic path towards healing and justice look like for survivors in America?” she asked. Well, in America that authentic path is called “due process,” something Democrats hurl out the window when it comes to accusations against Republicans.
