Four Years of This? I Can Hardly Wait

Joe Biden has funneled more than $2 million in campaign funds to his family over the years.

Democratic vice-presidential candidate Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. has paid more than $2 million in campaign cash to his family members, their businesses and employers over the years, a practice that watchdogs criticize as rife with potential conflicts of interest.

The money largely flowed from the coffers of Mr. Biden's failed presidential campaign during the past two years to a company that employs his sister and longtime campaign manager, Valerie Biden Owens, according to campaign disclosure filings.

If revelations like this keep breaking against Obama/Biden, we might see them indicted shortly after the election.

I wonder, would Sarah do this?

Biden is essentially broke with a near zero net worth. Probably doing this out of desperation because he manages his personal finances so poorly.

I'm sure BO could fit Obiden under the bus too.

He will have to.
