Conservative women's activist slams feminist silence on Hunter Biden child endangerment report
"We saw this same double standard play out when Joe Biden faced his own Me Too allegations," said the Independent Women's Forum's Kelsey Bolar. "The left was not curious."

A conservative women's activist is slamming feminist silence about evidence reported to Delaware police implicating Hunter Biden in alleged female child endangerment.
As Just the News reported this week, former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, one of President Trump's private attorneys, reported to Delaware police concerns that materials on a laptop reportedly tied to Hunter Biden contained evidence of possible child endangerment.
Giuliani and former New York Police Department Commissioner Bernard Kerik said they traveled together to deliver photographs and text messages from Hunter Biden's laptop to the New Castle County Police Department.
Giuliani said the text messages show Hunter Biden confessing to his father that he had repeatedly engaged in sexually questionable behavior in the presence of a female, minor child. The Delaware Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act mandates reporting by "any person, agency, organization, or entity who knows or in good faith suspects child abuse or neglect."
The act further states: "A mandated reporter who fails to report shall be liable for a civil penalty not to exceed $10,000 for the first violation, and not to exceed $50,000 for any subsequent violation."
"That's alarming," Kelsey Bolar of the conservative Independent Women's Forum told the "Just the News AM" television show. "That is a huge problem that any parent, regardless of your political affiliation should be concerned about. We saw this same double standard play out when Joe Biden faced his own Me Too allegations. The left was not curious."
Bolar said liberal women's rights activists fueling the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in 2018 "didn't present any sort of evidence."
"All they relied on is one woman's word against against his, with no sort of evidence," Bolar said. "And in this case there has been far more evidence presented in what happened, what allegedly took place, involving Hunter Biden."
Neither spokesmen for the Biden campaign nor Hunter Biden's attorney responded to request for comment from Just the News.
"The double standard is really because anybody on the left who is supporting Joe Biden right now is claiming that this is just a political smear," Bolar said. "And the fact that Joe Biden knew about it is news, this is something we should be talking about as mothers, as women. We all want to protect our children."
Joe Biden has spoken openly about Hunter Biden's struggle with cocaine addiction, including during the first presidential debate on Sept. 29 in Cleveland Ohio.
"My son like a lot of people at home had a drug problem," Biden said, when challenged by President Trump about Hunter Biden's behavior. "He's overtaking it. He's fixed it. He's worked on it. And I'm proud of him, I'm proud of my son."
Bolar said while Hunter Biden's addiction battle is poignant, it would be no excuse to leave a child in danger, particularly in violation of law.
"Joe Biden will constantly point to his son's very sympathetic drug addiction, and so many of us, sadly, know friends and family members who have faced addiction crises, and that is not an excuse for any illegal or illicit behavior," Bolar said. "Clearly his son needed help. Clearly, he was potentially involving other people's safety here. What did Joe Biden do about it? We all have sympathy for drug addictions, but we don't have sympathy for child endangerment."
