This story is falling apart as quickly as it appeared.
A video is being shopped now. I can’t imagine that it will be too long before we’ll get a look at it:
Tom Dunlap, an attorney for Dunlap, Grubb and Weaver in Washington D.C. is representing the seller of the tape in brokering a deal and several news organizations have seen the footage.
In addition to RadarOnline.com, representatives for the New York Post, a large British newspaper and the National Enquirer have all viewed the tape.
The woman on the tape clearly resembles Ashley Biden, 27, who is a social worker employed with the Delaware Department of Children, Youth and Families. She is also a board member of the Delaware YWCA organization.
The tape was shot this year.
On the tape a man cuts up five lines of what is said to be cocaine. The woman who the seller says is Ashley then jokes with the man that the lines aren’t big enough.
The man hands her a rolled-up dollar bill and she proceeds to walk a few steps to a table where the cocaine is cut. She pulls her hair back, bends down and snorts a line.
Four lines of white powdery substance are clearly visible on the table, which is in front of a computer.
After she snorts the first line, the woman said to be Ashley lifts her head and wipes her nose. She then snorts a second and third line before the tape cuts off.
The tape was made without her knowledge. It is being shopped for $250,000.
True or not, the only real story here is the diversion this will create for the administration. I don’t think Ashley Biden’s personal life is newsworthy. However, If the story is confirmed, and Ashley’s friends turn on her in an effort to grab their 15 minutes of fame, this story could stick around for months.
