Joe Biden’s 44-Year-Old Son Busted for Coke

Bad news for the Vice Presidential Family. Maybe he was just following in the President’s footsteps?

WASHINGTON—Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter was discharged from the Navy Reserve this year after testing positive for cocaine, according to people familiar with the matter.

Hunter Biden, a lawyer by training who is now a managing partner at an investment company, had been commissioned as an ensign in the Navy Reserve, a part-time position. But after failing a drug test last year, his brief military career ended.

Mr. Biden, 44 years old, decided to pursue military service relatively late, beginning the direct-commission process to become a public-affairs officer in the Navy Reserve in 2012. Because of his age—43 when he was to be commissioned—he needed a waiver to join the Navy. He received a second Navy waiver because of a drug-related incident when he was a young man, according to people familiar with the matter. Military officials say such drug waivers aren’t uncommon.

Mr. Biden was commissioned as an ensign on May 7, 2013, and assigned to Navy Public Affairs Support Element East in Norfolk, Va., a reserve unit, according to the Navy. In June 2013, after reporting to his unit in Norfolk, he was given a drug test, which turned up positive for cocaine, according to people familiar with the situation. Mr. Biden was discharged in February, the Navy said.

Looking forward to this story being covered in the same way it would have been if it were the Bush girls or the Palins … NOT!

  • "Busted" implies arrested. Nothing there. Since he apparently has a law degree, where's the sanction from the ABA? Is the Navy the only one with a moral compass?

  • How many more reasons does America need to clearly understand how our country needs change bringing new direction. Another disgrace representing America. Drugs plaguing our nation destroying lives, youths and families and now a Vice President's son clearly supporting all this through his own purchase and consumption. We can dismiss and vote against those shaming our country. This is just another sign of why AMERICA needs movement to stand together and unite once again coming against the political agenda in place bringing our nation down. As an AMERICAN INVENTOR join with me representing our country for the best that we are to support and rebuild here in the United States. We see the proof how democrats and President Obama are initiating so much to change our American Constitution and way of life. I for one cast my vote against them and all that they have done and continue to do. I want AMERICA GREAT AGAIN and they surely do not represent what is in our best interest as a people and a nation. UNITED they get voted out and removed beginning November 2014 elections just weeks away. REMOVE PRESIDENT OBAMA'S DEMOCRATIC SENATE AND POWER. I only wish the President would RESIGN so America can recover and rebuild. Boyish looks, clever speeches and manipulation is obvious today and destroying us while they remove everything that constitutes our way of life. VOTE in November for what brings America back and strengthens toward prospering once again. It's no time to be foolish anymore. Now is the time to turn AMERICA around. I applaud the NAVY for removing Biden from further service. Thank you!!!

  • I'm astounded anyone would be shocked by any of the shenanigans of this whole batch of clusterbuckers!

    If there's anything wrong these people could think of to do they would put it on their "bucket list" to make sure they get it done before they die.

    They have no respect for society, no personal restraint and, in my opinion are pretty much worthless to themselves and everyone else.

  • Joe's son was just taking, and using the advice of Bubba Clinton. He should just step forward and admit "HE DIDN'T INHALE". His dad will back him up, after getting a cup of 7-11 coffee from those Indian speaking PIPE SMOKERS who tried the same thing. :)

  • Oh BS Lisa.Same thing's true for the republican wing of the party and you know it.Ron Paul is who we needed.
