Hashtag #DropoutBiden started to trend on popular social media platform Twitter on Saturday, April 25, after a video clip from 1993 Larry King show emerged wherein a prominent senator was accused of assaulting a young member of his staff.
The anonymous caller had asked the panel for advice as her daughter who was a former staffer for a 'prominent senator' in Washington had to leave her work after the senator had assaulted her. This is being considered as a piece of new information about Tara Reade's accusation against the former Vice President Joe Biden.
The video had a woman from San Luis Obispo calling the Larry King Show in 1993 and requesting advice. It was reported that Reade's mother was living in the area at that time. Reade had shared information about the assault with her close circle. According to the anonymous call, the woman said that her daughter was not going to the press out of respect for the senator.
The Biden campaign has denied it had happened.
