Caroline Biden, niece of former Vice President Joe Biden has escaped jail time after stealing more than $100,000 in a credit card scam.
We need to start coining the term “liberal privilege.” What are the odds that this would happen with the relative of a prominent Republican after something like this happening after the media was done with them?
From The New York Post:
The wild-child niece of former Veep Joe Biden stole more than $100,000 in a credit card scam — and quietly cut a plea deal in Manhattan court that spares her any jail time, The Post has learned.
Using a borrowed credit card, the blonde Caroline Biden set up an unauthorized customer account at Bigelow Pharmacy on Sixth Avenue in Greenwich Village, and racked up the six-figure bill over the course of a year, according to a criminal complaint that does not name the victim card owner.
As part of a plea deal before Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Kevin McGrath, Biden, 29, pleaded guilty to one charge of grand larceny and another of petit larceny and agreed to make restitution of $110,810.04.
If she pays everything back and keeps her nose clean, she can return to court and enter a substitute plea to a lower, misdemeanor charge of petit larceny and be sentenced to two years probation.
This brush with the law is most definitely not an isolated incident. The entitled little princess has had other brushes with the law (emphasis in bold is mine):
Biden was also in Manhattan Criminal Court in 2014, on charges of resisting arrest, obstruction of justice and harassment stemming from a dustup with her Tribeca roommate.
In that case, the silver-spoon Georgetown University graduate was accused of taking a swing at a female cop who responded in Sept. 2013 to a drag out fight over unpaid rent between Biden and her roommate.
“I shouldn’t be handcuffed!” cops said Biden railed at the time. “You don’t know who you’re doing this to!”
Apparently the reason she engages in such criminal enterprises and feels like she shouldn’t be accountable for her actions stems from being the niece of a VP, which supposedly is just too much to bear…
“The pressure of being Joe Biden’s niece made her totally unravel,” pal Paul Johnson Calderon told The Post in Sept. 2013. “It’s a desire for attention, a cry for help. She’s a very complicated girl who has a lot of feelings and a lot of issues.”
Hundreds of years of spouses and children of PRESIDENTS facing similar pressures without being made to “totally unravel.” But being Caroline Biden, the niece of a VP who was practically a ghost, is just too much. You can’t give the little snowflake jail time! It’ll break her!
