I don’t know, maybe it’s not uncommon — but for one of the guys in the “we all have to have some skin in the game” administration it seems like his little contribution could be to let the people who protect him and his family stay nearby for free. But that’s not the case:

The U.S. Secret Service does more than protect Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. — the agency also pays him rent.

Since April, Mr. Biden has collected more than $13,000 from the agency charged with protecting the lives of he and his family, for use of a rental cottage adjacent to the waterfront home he owns in a Wilmington, Del., neighborhood.

Mr. Biden, listed not as vice president in federal purchasing documents but as “vendor,” is eligible for up to $66,000 by the time the government contract expires in the fall of 2013, the records show.

Hopefully voters end the contract early — January of 2013 to be exact.

Reminder: President Obama has tasked Joe Biden with hunting down misspent tax dollars wherever it exists. Maybe Pluggers could let the Secret Service crash at his cottage FoC and put the savings toward the debt — just a thought.

Update: Just got this Tweet: Required of course by Federal regulations, otherwise free rent may be perceived as a bribe to the security forces

Perceived as a bribe… to do what? Not save your life?

You can tell politicians write the laws: “And if our security detail stays on our property they have to pay us rent out of public funds, otherwise it might look like a bribe…”

    And to think he is leading the debt negotiations – putz! He should let them stay there for free in exchange for protecting him. But then again he is a Demoncrap and well it just ain't his damn money.

    Bite Me is getting far more than he`s worth as VP, isn`t doing his job as "Sheriff", is looking the other way while the Traitor-in-Chief destroys our country. And on the up-side, Ol` Foe provides us with the occasional laugh with his gaffes.

    My question then is : Who wants to do him any real harm for there to be a need for SS protection ? Here in the US at least ! ?

    Rent must be another one of Biden's three letter words.

    Oh that Plugs! Always putting the constituents and taxpayers 'first'. Then have the NERVE to refer to themselves as public 'servants'.

    Doug's featured his endless 'generousity' with charities in the past. One year he made like $300k and forked out $114 that year for the less fortunate. Meaning basically everyone that's not 'him'.

    Had we Term LIMITS we wouldn't be dealing w/ him now.

    This rental arrangement with the Secret Service came to light in Biden’s newly released 2012 tax return. “So the agents could be close at hand for his own safety’s sake, Biden generously offered to charge his bodyguards only $2,200 a month. He said that’s the same rent as the previous tenant.” Biden became the Secret Service landlord through what apparently amounts to a no-bid contract, making him technically a federal contractor/vendor.
