October during a presidential election year has developed a reputation for being riddled with “surprises” — meaning unearthed political dirt on a candidate that may affect election outcomes.
One of this year’s October surprises happens to be regarding Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his sexual assault accuser, Tara Reade.
Reade, a longtime Democrat, is planning to release a memoir on Oct. 27 titled “Left Out: When the Truth Doesn’t Fit In,” which details her experience after publicly sharing her allegation against Biden, who she claims sexually assaulted her while she worked for him in 1993. Biden was a senator at the time.
