Politico says they spoke with multiple Tara Reade acquaintances who said she spoke favorably about her time with Biden and “left them feeling duped”.
Jim and Harriet Wrye say Reade rented a yurt on their California property and say she “frequently knocked on the door seeking emotional support, asking for financial help, or forgiveness with late rent payments”.
Lynn Hummer who owns a horse ranch where Reade volunteered. She says Reade asked her to help hide a car from repossession and described Reade as “Very cleaver, manipulative… I think she’s a liar.”
Austin Chung rented Reade a house in 2010 and said he ultimately had to evict her. He says Reade repeatedly made up excuses for her lateness and ultimately left the home damaged.
Kelly Klett rented Reade a room in 2018 and says about Reade, “You can use these words, manipulative, deceitful, user”.
According to Politico, “A number of those in close contact with Reade over the past 12 years, a period in which she went by the names Tara Reade, Tara McCabe or Alexandra McCabe, laid out a familiar pattern” and showed them emails and other messages that “detailed their grievances”.
