Tara Reade has officially sat down for her first on-camera interview, bravely joining Megyn Kelly to discuss her allegations of sexual assault against Joe Biden.

When asked by Kelly if she thinks Biden should withdraw, Reade said, “I wish he would.” She even says she would go under oath or take a polygraph. Now that Reade has stepped forward and done an on-camera interview and called for Biden to drop out, it’s past time Iowa Democrats step forward and tell Iowans where they stand on these allegations and whether or not they support Joe Biden.

Reps. Cindy Axne and Abby Finkenauer, who both endorsed Biden before the caucuses, still haven’t said a word on the allegations and whether or not they believe Reade deserves to be heard.

Theresa Greenfield, Rita Hart, and J.D. Scholten still haven’t even said whether or not they support Joe Biden for president, let alone address the allegations against him.

Tara Reade has broken her silence. Iowa Democrats must do the same.
