Tara Reade, the woman who recently accused presidential candidate Joe Biden of sexually abusing her 27 years ago, has now hired an attorney who donated over $55,000 to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016.
According to Daily Mail, Reade hired Douglas Wigdor, a prominent attorney in several sexual assault and harassment cases, after she was unable to find a lawyer to take up her case.
Wigdor spoke to The Associated Press after being hired by Reade.
“We have decided to take this matter on because every survivor has the right to competent counsel,” the firm, Wigdor LLP in New York City, said in a statement.
According to Wigdor, Reade has been unable to find an attorney as a result of “politics.”
“I think highly of a lot of these people,” he said of those who wouldn’t take the case. “These are my friends and colleagues, people who I respect, but they tend to be Democrats or liberals, and they were not interested, because of that, in representing Tara Reade.”
