A prominent #MeToo advocacy group with ties to a top Joe Biden adviser refused to publicize sexual harassment allegations against the former vice president earlier this year.
The program director at NWLC told Reade in January it was likely she could qualify for legal assistance from Time’s Up.
Sharyn Tejani, the director of the Time’s Up’s Legal Defense Fund, informed Reade that getting involved with her case would jeopardize their status as a 501(c)3 nonprofit.
Tejani argued it was improper for the legal defense fund to highlight Reade’s allegations against Biden as long as he was running for president.
Adding to the cloudy reasoning for Time’s Up’s refusal to help Reade is that the group has ties to Anita Dunn, a high-profile adviser to the former vice president, through its public relations firm, SKDKnickerbocker.
