Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s niece was arrested for driving under the influence last year, her arraignment has been conveniently rescheduled for the day after the presidential election.
The Biden family wild child, 33-year-old Caroline Biden, drove her Toyota Tacoma into a tree in Lower Merion Township, PA on Aug. 24, 2019. She was arrested when responding officers found bottles of carisoprodol and lorazepam in her car, and Biden “had difficulty focusing on the conversation” with police.
She appeared at a preliminary arraignment in September 2019 and was released without posting bail. Biden’s lawyers requested several continuances of her case, which delayed the hearing long enough for the coronavirus pandemic to close down the courts from March to July.
Her latest court date comes a day after her Uncle Joe could potentially become president-elect. Mike Gottlieb, a local attorney, told the Post, “I find it unusual that it would be that far into the future.”
In addition to the suspicious timing, the judge overseeing her case, Wendy Rothstein, is an active Democratic donor. “The case hasn’t come before me yet. I don’t know anything about it,” Rothstein commented. The district attorney, Kevin Steele is also a voting Democrat.
This is not Caroline’s first run-in with the law, or the first time she may have received preferential treatment. She assaulted an officer in September of 2013, after a confrontation with a roommate about her unpaid rent.
As Biden was handcuffed, she told police, “You don’t know who you’re doing this to!” Prosecutors dropped the charges of assaulting a police officer in exchange for mandatory anger management classes.
In 2017, she charged $110,000 at an upscale pharmacy on a stolen credit card but received a questionably flimsy plea deal that dropped the felony charge down to petty larceny. Her sentence was a laughably light ten days of mandatory community service at a children’s hospital and financial restitution likely paid by her financier father.
A spokesperson for the Pennsylvania court system said Biden’s court date was auto-generated and no judge was involved with the scheduling. If convicted she faces a minimum of 72 hours in jail, a $1000 fine, and suspension of her license for one year.
