Today, RealClearPolitics reported that Gary Peters had been ducking their request for comment on Tara Reade’s allegations against Joe Biden. A little less than a month ago, Peters endorsed Biden for the Democrat presidential nomination.
In 2018, during Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings, Peters stated, “These allegations against Judge Kavanaugh are extremely serious. Professor Ford deserves the opportunity to have her voice heard and tell her story before the Judiciary Committee acts on Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination.” Michigan’s junior senator has yet to weigh in on the allegations against his party’s presumptive presidential nominee.
“Just like most issues, Gary Peter sides with Chuck Schumer and the Democrats when it’s convenient, and is silent when the issue might hurt his political ambitions.” said Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party Chairman. “Are the allegations against Joe Biden not extremely serious? Does Tara Reade not deserve to have her voice heard? This is just more of the same half-baked leadership from our junior senator, who’d rather stand up for Washington’s interests than Michigan’s.”
