The list of corroborating witnesses for Tara Reade increased on Monday when a former neighbor and a former colleague came forward saying that Reade told them about the incident back in the 1990s.
Lynda LaCasse, a former neighbor of Reade’s, says that Reade told about the alleged assault back in 1995 or 1996. “This happened, and I know it did because I remember talking about it.”
According to LaCasse, Reade got emotional as she told the story. “She was crying, she was upset. And the more she talked about it, the more she started crying. I remember saying that she needed to file a police report.”
LaCasse came forward now because Reade’s story is starting to undergo intense scrutiny and because of the denials from the Biden campaign. According to LaCasse, she believed Reade when she first told her the story. “I have to support her just because that’s what happened. We need to stand up and tell the truth.”
