According to the Los Angeles Times, the daughter of Sen. Joe Biden ( yes, that Biden, Barack Obama’s running mate) was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of obstructing a police officer outside one of “those” Chicago bars.

Ashley Blazer Biden, 21, of Wilmington, Del., was with a group of “friends” on a North Side Chicago street where several bars are located when someone else threw a bottle at an officer, police said.

When police tried to arrest that other person,  Ashley blocked the officer’s path and made intimidating statements, about who she was, who her father was, and the like, and generally tried to block the officer from arresting Ashley’s “friend”/”acquaintance”,  the police officer said.

Miss Biden was later released and is scheduled for court on September 20th.

Sen. Biden’s spokeswoman, Margaret Aitken, declined to comment, calling it a “private, family matter”.

Well, yes, one can understand their wish to keep this a “private, family matter, given the humilating and demeaning rumors and false accusations the Obama/Biden camp have spread for three days now about Governor Sarah Palin. I really, really do understand that.  But don’t you think that what you encourage your supporters to do to others, should also be good enough treatment for you?

But I won’t go there. I’ll just use the facts, and people will assume what they will.  Fair enough? I just know you will understand, after all, politics is politics, right?  I will say, however, in the spirit of Barack’s statement about Governor Palin’s family, that it would be wrong for anyone to speculate about Ashley Biden’s friends or lifestyle.  I firmly believe kids should be off limits.  And if I ever run for office, I will do my best to keep it that way. Too bad Ashley isn’t a kid anymore.

  1. Joe Biden’s daugther isn’t a kid she is 28 years old, and Joe Biden’s son is a big time Washington Lobbylist! There is a differents between reporting Biden’s daugther arrest and attacking a 17 year old!

    Seem that Biden family has a drinking problem as its being said that his son was in an accident while DWI.

  2. Innocent until proven guilty. The Republicans are so out of sorts on the press’ outing of Bristol Palin’s pregnancy that they are jumping all over this old but very well reported arrest of Ashley Biden. What troubles me the most is that the case (which assumedly had its day in court) is being tried in the press after the fact and with no reporting of the outcome of the criminal adjudication.

    Very interesting. I can only speculate that the charges were dropped so that is not the sexy and salcious part of the story?

  3. Funny I haven’t heard this in the mainstream media, they couldn’t possibly be biased could they?

    One of Biden’s sons and Biden’s brother has been indicted in a federal fraud case over a Hedge fund scheme. We don’t hear that in the media either.

  4. Obviously no one’s perfect, however, it would make for a more interesting election race if the electorate paid attention to the *real* issues and left the scandal mongering to the media and “holier than thous”.

    Come to think of it, if the electorate refused to participate in the scandal mongering, the media might have to resort to reporting on the *real* issues. Geeze, what a concept :-).

  5. Did you ncarnes come to the defense of Sarah Palin’s daugther or just the defense of Joe Biden daugther?

  6. It is so sad to watch the deterioration of reponsible journalism in America. I might as well read the tabloids. The liberal media and the liberals have totally lost any sense of not only morality but humanity, as well. I can not even think of a word to describe them. Slime is the closest I could get.

  7. Didn’t this happen in 2002? A search of the internet shows the same story with a tag line from 2002?
