Biden’s Daughter Ashley Arrested in “Altercation”
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.
