Yesterday, Fox News reported that Senator Gary Peters yet again “did not respond to a request for comment”, regarding Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegations against Joe Biden. This is now the third publication that Peters has avoided responding to on this question in recent weeks.
In 2018, during Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings, Gary Peters supported Christine Blasey Ford coming forward. Now, Peters remains silent on Reade’s allegations against Biden – whom Peters endorsed for president last month.
“Michiganders should not be surprised Gary Peters would rather hide from the press than risk disappointing his buddy Joe Biden.” said Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party Chairman. Cox continued, “After all, Gary Peters hides from all issues that could hurt his political party or jeopardize his standing with Democrats. The honest and hardworking people of our state deserve to know if Gary Peters puts sexual assault survivors or his political party first.”
