“That’s what they said when Kavanaugh was accused with no evidence. But when their standard bearer is accused of sexual assault, nothing,” the narrator in the ad states. “Silence. It’s simple: Democrats believe the woman when believing the woman helps Democrats.”

Tara Reade has accused Biden of assaulting her when she worked in his Senate office in the 1990s.

Biden has denied the allegations and top Democrats have said they do not believe Reade’s allegations against him.

The Ford allegation was one of the biggest news stories of 2018, with Democrats marching with protesters to demand justice and calling on Kavanaugh to remove himself from consideration for an appointment to the Supreme Court.
