It’s never a good time in an election for a campaign to be linked to an alleged child predator.
But especially not with just weeks remaining before the election.
And an FBI raid over a child sex scandal had an ugly link to Joe Biden’s campaign.
As Black Eye Politics reports:
Jerry Harris is one of the stars of the Netflix series “Cheer”.
Harris is also a Joe Biden supporter that participated in an Instagram video with the former Vice President this past June urging Americans to vote for Biden.
But now Harris is in the news for all the wrong reasons as USA Today reported the FBI executed a search warrant on a residence in Illinois as part of an investigation into allegations Harris solicited sex from a minor.
“The criminal investigation is based on allegations brought by 14-year-old twin brothers. In interviews with USA TODAY, the boys described a pattern of harassment, both online and at cheer competitions, that started when they were 13 and Harris was 19. They said it continued for more than a year,” USA Today exclusively reported.
Harris has not yet been charged with a crime.
But USA Today reports on some disturbing evidence.
“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,’” USA Today exclusively reported.
This is not the first time in recent weeks Netflix and the Democrat Party faced uncomfortable questions about exploiting young girls.
Netflix faced massive backlash for the movie “Cuties” which both Democrats and Republicans that ran for President described as child pornography.
Former President Barack and former First Lady Michelle Obama signed a lucrative deal with Netflix to produce content for the streaming giant and neither one commented on a film where 11-year-old girls dressed in suggestive outfits, twerked and were overly sexualized in a difficult to watch movie that many believed was nothing short of an endorsement of pedophilia.
Now, thanks to the FBI raid and the allegations facing Harris, Democrats are once again facing criticism over their connections to Netflix.
In the final weeks of a campaign, no candidate can afford to be thrown off message for even one day.
Every day a candidate spends responding to or absorbing incoming attacks is one less day they have to communicate their message to the voters.
