New Jersey: Former VP Joe Biden arrives at Rutgers University to discuss sexual assaults on campuses
- 12 October 2017
Media mogul Harvey Weinstein "used his power in a disgusting and immoral way" and deserves to face legal consequences, former Vice President Joe Biden said on October 12, 2017 in a speech on sexual assault at Rutgers University. Speaking before more than 2,100 students in the College Avenue Gym in New Brunswick, Biden praised the actresses and other alleged victims who have spoken out against Weinstein in recent weeks. Biden's appearance at the raucous event was part of the "It's On Us" campaign, which he started with President Barack Obama in 2014 after a White House task force recommended ways to prevent sexual violence on campus.
