Former Biden Campaign Surrogate Has Home Raided by FBI After Allegations of Soliciting Sex from Minors

Earlier this year, the Netflix 'Cheer' star helped boost Joe Biden's presidential campaign.


More disturbing allegations are now arising related to Netflix.

The FBI just raided the home of ‘Cheer’ star Jerry Harris.

According to reports, Harris is alleged to have solicited sexually explicit images and sex from minors.

Harris, who once helped boost Joe Biden’s presidential campaign by hosting an Instagram session with Biden, has not yet been criminally charged.

The criminal investigation is based off allegations from twin 14-year-old boys, who say Harris harassed them both online and at cheer competitions, starting back when they were just 13 and Harris was 19.

Fox News has more on Harris' connection with Joe Biden:

A popular Netflix personality who is reportedly under FBI investigation for soliciting nude photos from minors helped boost Joe Biden's presidential campaign earlier this year.

USA Today reported on Monday that the FBI executed a search warrant at the home of Jerry Harris, one of the stars of the Netflix docuseries "Cheer."

"The FBI is conducting court-authorized law enforcement activity in that area," Siobhan Johnson, a special agent public affairs officer, told Fox News in a statement on Monday.  However, the FBI would not elaborate on specifics and did not name Harris.

A rep for Harris did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment. Netflix had no comment when reached by Fox News.

In a statement to TMZ on Monday, a spokesperson for Harris said: "We categorically dispute the claims made against Jerry Harris, which are alleged to have occurred when he was a teenager. We are confident that when the investigation is complete the true facts will be revealed."

USA Today's report indicated that the 21-year-old has not been criminally charged.

Amid the news about the Netflix star, an Instagram session he hosted with the Democratic candidate resurfaced.

"I had the opportunity to speak with Vice President @JoeBiden a few days ago about some really important issues facing our country right now, in particular young adults and the Black community," Harris wrote on June 12. "Check out part of our conversation about voter apathy and why it is so important that we all register to vote. Together we have the power to make a real change!"

In the edited video, Biden called the act of voting "the most powerful non-violent tool we have."

Biden closed the conversation by telling Harris, "I'd like to spend the day with you. Hopefully we can meet one another once this coronavirus-"

"Absolutely!" Harris replied.

The post has since been deleted from Harris' Instagram page. The Biden campaign did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.

USA Today with more on the allegations:

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.

Those allegations were also reported to police by Varsity Brands, a private company that dominates the cheerleading industry, handling everything from uniform sales to major competitions. Harris is accused of asking one of the brothers to have sex with him in 2019 at two Varsity cheerleading competitions.

In Aug. 1 letters to police in Florida and Texas, Varsity’s Chief Legal Officer Burton Brillhart said the company had learned of “inappropriate sexual conduct” allegations against Harris and was reporting the information to authorities as required by law.

“As a result of the recent allegation, we have barred this person from having any affiliation with Varsity Brands or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates, now and in the future,” he wrote.

He described Harris as a former employee who was not actively working for Varsity at the time of the incidents. In May 2019, Harris posted on social media that he was working for the National Cheerleaders Association, a Varsity brand. That summer, he posted multiple photos and videos of himself coaching athletes at NCA camps.

Varsity spokeswoman Jackie Kennedy said Monday the organization "can’t comment on an active law enforcement investigation; we continue to cooperate with authorities in their inquiries on this matter."

The brothers, Charlie and Sam, and their mother Kristen spoke with USA TODAY in August at their Texas home. USA TODAY agreed to withhold their last name because the boys are minors and alleging abuse.

The family provided USA TODAY with screenshots from five text and social media conversations between the boys and accounts they say belong to Harris. Several include messages explicitly requesting nude photos or sex. In one conversation on Snapchat, an account with the name “.jerry harris” responded to a photo of Charlie stretching his leg above his head.

“Do it naked and take a video and show me,” Harris replied privately, according to a screenshot provided to USA TODAY.

Charlie said his interactions with Harris left him struggling with anxiety. He lost sleep, his grades suffered and he cried at school.

“It was just eating me alive,” he said. “It was just making me so gross and uncomfortable. Every time I saw his name or something like that, I was just cringing about it.”

Kristen said the FBI interviewed both boys on Aug. 28 and Charlie again on Sept. 11. She said the agency has pulled data from their cellphones and requested documentation from competitions where they interacted with Harris.

Nine law enforcement agents spent about three hours Monday afternoon in Harris' home in Naperville, Illinois. From the outside, there was little to be seen of the FBI's effort. The home, tucked at the end of a quiet cul de sac, has an immaculate lawn with a row of small bushes lining the walkway. Two officials briefly stepped out to pull two duffel bags from a four-door red Jeep Wrangler Rubicon parked in front of the home.

Around 5:15 p.m. central time, nine agents walked out the front door and left in unmarked cars. Soon after, a woman who identified herself as a family friend arrived at the home. It appeared to be Harris who opened the door to let her in.

The allegations against Harris have been reported to at least four other law enforcement agencies in Texas and Florida, records obtained by USA TODAY show.

Jerry Harris from Netflix's 'Cheer' accused of soliciting sex, nude photos from minors

Hollywood is an absolute disgusting institution filled with sexual delinquents and predators.

It's appearing more and more that Netflix is just another umbrella under which they hide in plain sight.

Between this and the controversy surrounding the 'Cuties' show, something needs to be done before more children are hurt. 

Democrats are also exposing themselves as being complicit with this kind of behavior.
