A shocking fact about Joe Biden just went public and now his campaign is over
Joe Biden is dominating in the race for the Democrat nomination for president.
He continues to hold a commanding lead, with many months still to go.
But one shocking fact about Joe Biden just went public, and now his campaign is over.
Profiting from serving in public office has been around since the invention of democracy.
But nobody has perfected the art quite like Democrat Party insiders.
Politicians like Hillary and Bill Clinton have made millions of dollars by selling access to themselves while in and out of office.
This is one of the biggest scandals that sunk the Hillary Clinton campaign.
And now Joe Biden is finding himself in a similar situation.
New reporting reveals the former Vice President’s wealth has exploded since leaving office.
He has raked in millions of dollars through speaking fees and book deals.
That on its own is not all that surprising, but considering that he continues to make this money as he is running for president fuels speculation he may try to profit off a “pay-to-play” scheme just the way Hillary Clinton did.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
New reporting from the Washington Post details how former vice president Biden has earned millions of dollars since leaving the White House in what the Post described as “an explosion of wealth.”
Biden’s newfound wealth since leaving public office has mostly come from paid speeches, some of which earned him as much as $200,000, and book deals. The book deal for his 2017 memoir Promise Me, Dad was reportedly worth $8 million and covered three books from Biden and his wife, of which two have been published.
The former vice president’s campaign said he has given fewer than 50 paid speeches in the years since serving alongside President Obama but declined to give further details to the Post about how much he made from these speeches. Four contracts unearthed by the Post show Biden making between $150,000 to $200,000 per speaking appearance.
Looking super corrupt, his financial deals give every appearance of a pay-to-play scheme.
You can be sure Joe Biden’s Democrat opponents will mercilessly slam him using this new information against him viciously.
Many of his opponents are outright socialists, who hate anybody making money to begin with.
So their supporters will be infuriated to hear just how much money Biden is making.
