Tara Reade, who worked for Joe Biden in the 90s, accused the former vice president of sexual assault earlier this year. But recent reports have claimed that she has been known to lying under oath.
According to POLITICO, “a number of California defense attorneys are considering challenging the convictions of their clients amid questions about whether Reade misrepresented her credentials under oath.”
Six cases involving Reade’s testimony are already under review by the 6th District Appellate Program, Executive Director Patrick McKenna told POLITICO Thursday.
“I have at least six cases where she testified and I have lists pending from various attorney groups where she testified as a violence expert. I expect that list will expand significantly,” McKenna said. “We’re trying to get the lists together. We’re aware of Ms. Reade, we’re in the mode of trying to review the transcripts to see if she misrepresented herself in court.”
According to the report, Reade claimed to have had an undergraduate degree that her college says she never earned and appears to have exaggerated her role in then-Delaware Sen. Biden’s office.
“Last week, I was informed she testified as an expert. Last week, I was also informed she lied about her credentials. I didn’t connect the dots on the significance of those two things until yesterday when I was contacted by an attorney,” McKenna said.
Reade’s attorney who was representing her in her case against Biden dropped her as a client on Friday.
