Ashley Biden Allegedly Consumes Coke on Candid CameraApril 1st, 2009 by Rick
An alleged recent video of Ashley Biden, daughter of Vice President Joe Biden, snorting cocaine is apparently being shopped around to the highest bidder. A “friend”, quivering behind lawyers, offered to sell the video to the NY Post, who ultimately declined but decided to publish a story on it.
The Post viewed a 90 second clip from the video that was reportedly shot with a hidden camera earlier this month during a Delaware house party.
A young woman strongly resembling Ashley is seen taking a red straw from her mouth, bending over a desk, inserting the straw into her nostril and snorting lines of white powder. The camera follows the woman from a few feet away, focusing on her as she moves about the room.
The White House and spokesmen for Joseph Biden have refused to return repeated requests for comment. Security at the Vice President’s Wilmington, Delaware home — where Ashley is believed to have sought refuge — told a Post reporter to beat it. Ashley is currently a social worker at a Delaware child-welfare agency.
Nat Berman, a Tulane University classmate, says that back in 1999 he even had to bail Ashley out of jail when she was arrested for marijuana possession in New Orleans.
She was freaking out. She was like, ‘I’m in this cell.’ She was not happy.
Berman said he paid a bail bondsman “between $200 and $400″ to bail Ashley out, and then drove her home. New Orleans court records confirm Ashley’s September 1999 marijuana-possession arrest but do not detail any conviction. Let’s see, she was 17, in New Orleans and the daughter of a then U.S. Senator, any wonder why there was no conviction?
It’s rather ironic that the man who coined the phrase “Drug Czar” and has always had a stern anti-drug stance, has a daughter that’s been experimenting with drugs for seemingly quite some time. Luckily for her it’s only on video tape. Vice President Biden will have egg on his face, especially during such a turbulent time with the war on drugs.
When the press does eventually get his comments, the first question they should ask is this: If Ashley had been arrested for cocaine possession or use that night, would she have deserved to go to jail and possibly have her career and life torpedoed like so many others?
Not that it would matter. When has a politician’s offspring ever been treated like a regular citizen when it comes to the law? Still, it’ll be interesting to see how this is handled if in fact it is her on said video.
