It appears his son learned his money grubbing from daddy. Joe Biden charged the Secret Service rent so that the could protect him when he was home from Washington. He made a cool $171k in his 8 years as vice president.
Nice work if you can get it. He has a guest house on his property and he rented it to the Secret Service. President Trump doesn’t even take his salary as president. Do you think he might rent out the Lincoln bedroom to the Secret Service to boost his income? That’s gotta be good for 5 or 6 thousand a month.
People used to pay Bill Clinton more than that for one night.
The Secret Service paid former Vice President Joe Biden $171,600 in rent for a guest home on his property while they were protecting him, according to purchasing orders.
“Middle-class Joe” used to refer to himself as the poorest senator, but has since raked in millions in income, according to the Washington Post. He gets up to $200,000 from book deals and speaking fees, and averaged $369 in charity donations for 10 years before 2008.
He also received $171,600 in rent from the Secret Service when he charged them to stay in his guest home while under their protection in 2010. The Secret Service paid rent because it “was a rental unit,” the Washington Timesreported in 2011. The amount in rent was about $2,200, which was the same as what the previous tenant paid, an agent said according to the Washington Times.
The previous tenant was Joe Biden‘s mom, according to WaPo. The Secret Service moved in shortly after she passed away.
