Mr. Bidens son, Hunter, received consulting fees from the MBNA Corporation from 2001 to 2005 for work on online banking issues. Aides to Mr. Obama, who chose Mr. Biden as his vice-presidential running mate on Saturday, would not say how much the younger Mr. Biden, who works as both a lawyer and lobbyist in Washington, had received, though a company official had once described him as having a $100,000 a year retainer.

Reminds me of when a 22-year old was put in as CEO/Chairthing of the monopoly electric company in St. Petersburg, Russia. A real wunderkind with no particular education or training. He was also the mayor’s son.
I feel bad for poor Hunter Bagman Biden because he had to kick up 50% of that $100K salary to his daddy Creepy Joe Biden.
I wonder if Hoover registered as a lobbyist for the Chicoms.
Bidens have been dirty a long, long time!
My son worked for MBNA after graduating from Delaware and I know he didn’t get anything like that kind of money. He knew bouth Biden sons and says Beau was the good one but Hunter was trouble at an early age.
He was also on the board at AMTRAK.
When I turned 21, I was waiting tables, tending bar and going to school.
Are you f#@&Ing kidding me!
