The White House was plunged into turmoil Saturday as an explosive video emerged allegedly showing Vice President Biden’s daughter snorting cocaine at a Delaware house party.
The shocking video of Ashley Biden, 27, was shot this year and is being peddled for $250,000, a lawyer representing the seller told RadarOnline.com.
The White House did not return requests for comment Saturday night. The vice president, who was attending a summit in Chile Saturday, could not be reached.
The tape, viewed by several news agencies, allegedly shows a man cutting up five lines of what appear to be cocaine.
Moments later, a woman – identified by the person selling the tape as Ashley Biden – jokes that the lines aren’t large enough, RadarOnline.com reported.
The unidentified man then hands over a rolled-up dollar bill, and the young woman with brown hair strolls to the table where the white powder was cut, pulls back her hair, reaches down and snorts a line, according to reports.
Four lines of white powdery substance are clearly visible on the table, RadarOnline.com reported.
After she snorts the first line, the woman lifts her head and wipes her nose, then snorts a second and third line of powder, RadarOnline.com reported.
The video, which may have been shot without the woman’s knowledge, was recorded at a raucous house party in Wilmington, according to the gossip Web site, and the man in the video is said to be Ashley Biden’s boyfriend.
Ashley Biden, a social worker employed by the Delaware Department of Children, Youth and Families, has been the subject of controversy before.
In 2002, Ashley Biden, then 21, was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of obstructing a police officer after a friend threw a soda can at a cop outside a Chicago bar.
Ashley Biden allegedly blocked the path of the officer and made threatening statements.
The charges against Ashley Biden, a student at Tulane University in New Orleans at the time, were dropped in exchange for a public apology in court.
Ashley Biden – who could not be reached for comment Saturday night – is the youngest of the veep’s three children. She is the only one born to the vice president and his second wife, Jill.
