A "friend" of Vice President Joseph Biden's daughter, Ashley, is attempting to hawk a videotape that he claims shows her snorting cocaine at a house party this month in Delaware.
The shocking video of Ashley Biden, 27, was shot this year and is being peddled for $250,000, according to a lawyer representing the seller.
The New York Post reports that it was shown a 90-second clip of a 42-minute video by a lawyer claiming to represent the anonymous "friend" of the vice president's daughter.
"The tape, viewed by several news agencies, allegedly shows a man cutting up five lines of what appear to be cocaine." Moments later, a woman - identified by the person selling the tape as Ashley Biden - jokes that the lines aren't large enough.
"The unidentified man then hands over a rolled-up dollar bill, and the young woman with brown hair strolls to the table where the white powder was cut, pulls back her hair, reaches down and snorts a line, according to reports." Four lines of white powdery substance are clearly visible on the table." After she snorts the first line, the woman lifts her head and wipes her nose, then snorts a second and third line, RadarOnline.com reported."
The video would embarrass Mr. Biden, a teetotaller and an outspoken anti-drug crusader who coined the term “drug czar” in 1982 while campaigning for tougher action against illegal drugs.
Ashley Biden was arrested in 1999 while as a student for marijuana possession and again in 2002 for obstructing a police officer. Both charges were subsequently dropped.
Ashley Biden is a social worker employed by the Delaware Department of Children, Youth, and Families.
