Joe Biden's attorney Bob Bauer issued a response to Secretary of Senate Julie Adams who said Monday she has no discretion to release records related to an alleged sexual harassment complaint filed against Biden. Their names are pronounced nearly identically, but the "Sharknado" star who first gained household recognition when she starred in the 1999 film "American Pie" says she has been flooded with messages on Twitter that have her confused for the former staffer in Biden's congressional office in the 1990s.

On Monday, however, the secretary of the Senate responded to Biden's request saying the office has "no discretion to disclose" the information, Axios reports. Adams's office said that it can not do so in a statement issued Monday morning, citing confidentiality requirements from a 1991 law governing personnel complaints. And within that intake form, she did not use the words sexual harassment or assault. Dennis Toner, who was Biden's deputy chief of staff at the time and one of the people Reade said she had discussed her complaints with, told CNN in an interview that he had no recollection of Reade or any conversation related to sexual harassment allegations.
