With less than 50 days to go before the Presidential Election, neither candidate can afford to be thrown off stride for even a day.
Democrats are learning that lesson the hard way.
And Joe Biden’s world was turned upside down over this arrest on a child sex scandal.
Jerry Harris, a star of the Netflix series Cheer and prominent Joe Biden supporter is under FBI investigation for soliciting sex from a minor.
The FBI searched a residence in Illinois, but Harris has not yet been charged in the probe.
USA Today reported:
The criminal investigation is based on allegations that were reported separately to police by Varsity Brands, a private company that dominates the cheerleading industry and handles everything from uniform sales to major competitions. In Aug. 1 letters to police in Florida and Texas, Varsity’s chief legal officer, Burton Brillhart, said the company learned of “inappropriate sexual conduct” allegations against Harris and reported the information to authorities as required by law…
…Brillhart included two screenshots in his communication with law enforcement. In one – a Snapchat message – a picture of the upper part of what appears to be Harris’ face is labeled with the message, “Would you ever want to ****”. The other screenshot – which is a series of text messages – indicates an exchange that began on Friday, May 3, 2019, when an individual named “jerry harris” wrote, “Hey btw I found a place for us to do stuff it’s actually pretty good haha.”
In June, Harris appeared in an online video for Biden to help drum up support for his campaign.
The Biden campaign knew there is no enthusiasm for Biden’s candidacy so they tried to use every celebrity endorser possible.
That decision now cost them a bad news cycle at a time when the Biden campaign cannot afford to be thrown off message for even a day.
