Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden still has not fielded any questions from the press about the sexual assault claims recently leveled against him, three weeks and 10 media interviews after the allegations against the former vice president went public, the Washington Free Beacon reports.
Biden has been accused by former staffer Tara Reade of slamming her against a wall and penetrating her with his fingers in 1993. She has since filed a criminal complaint.
However, interviewers with MSNBC, The Today Show, and Meet the Press have not asked him about those claims since they became national news.
The New York Times this week revealed that it edited an article about those allegations at the request of the Biden campaign, taking out a reference to Biden's previous purported instances of sexual harassment including "hugs, kisses, and touching that women previously said made them uncomfortable."
