That’s what Tara Reade is demanding to know after learning Bill Clinton snagged a prime speaker’s slot at this week’s Democratic National Convention, calling the move “unconscionable.”
Reade, who made headlines this year when she accused Joe Biden of shoving her against a wall and forcibly penetrating her with his fingers at a Capitol Hill office building in 1993, slammed party bigwigs for bringing in Bubba.
“The Democratic National Committee has made it clear to survivors that they enable and they uphold institutionalized rape culture by allowing Bill Clinton to be a main speaker,” Reade told The Post.
She added: “He has a history of sexual misconduct.”
So she wondered why DNC brass would put him on the big stage.
“It is unconscionable that Bill Clinton is a main speaker, and this is coming from someone who voted for him. This is coming from a multi-generational Democrat.”
Reade said she believes Clinton is a sexual predator. “This is based on talking to two of the survivors and also the court documents that have now been released because of Ghislaine Maxwell.”
Clinton infamously palled around with Maxwell’s boss, Jeffrey Epstein.
Giving Clinton a forum at the convention will set a “dangerous precedent,” Reade said.
“They are holding up the MeToo movement as a shield for the sexual predators they are allowing in the Democratic establishment.”
She added: “I feel that hypocrisy, like sexual assault and sexual harassment, is an equal opportunity offender and it’s a nonpartisan issue. So I think the hypocrisy of the Democratic party is on full display by their speaker line-up for the Democratic national convention.”
The fallout from the scandal has left Reade “destitute,” she said.
“After I came forward about Joe Biden, I lost everything, my work, my housing everything,” Reade said. “The weaponization of fear and shame to silence survivors has to stop.”
She’s left the Democratic party, she said, and plans to register as an independent.
“I am going to vote local — not participating in the national election,” she said.
“For sure I will not be voting for Biden.”
Reade notably would not make a similar statement about Trump and said she would be open to even speaking at the Republican convention — though she hasn’t yet been asked.
Juanita Broaddrick, who has long maintained that Bill Clinton raped her in 1978 when she was working as a nursing home administrator in Arkansas, told The Post she too was disappointed by the former president’s speaking slot.
“This leaves no doubt the Democrats are the party of rape apologists and enablers. There are no words to express my profound revulsion at their decision,” she said.
