Vice President Joe Biden’s son discharged from Navy after testing positive for cocaine
From Business Insider:
Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter was kicked out of the Navy Reserve this year after he tested positive for cocaine, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.
A Yale-educated lawyer, the 44-year-old Hunter Biden was commissioned as a Navy ensign May 7, 2013 and assigned as a public affairs officer at a reserve unit in Norfolk, Va., the Journal reported. But just a month later when he checked into his new unit and was given a drug test, he popped for cocaine.
He was discharged in February of this year.
In a statement, Biden said it was “the honor of my life to serve in the U.S. Navy, and I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge. I respect the Navy’s decision. With the love and support of my family, I’m moving forward.”
The U.S. official said the Navy never had contact with the vice president’s office over the issue, and that standard procedure for failed drug tests is administrative discharge. The vice president’s office didn’t comment on the report.
Hunter Biden is the younger of Biden’s two sons. His older brother, Beau Biden, is Delaware’s attorney general and a major in the Delaware Army National Guard. He was deployed for a year in Iraq.
Am I the only one pissed knowing that the son of our Vice President can’t get off with just a slap on the wrists for snorting a few gator tails? And how did this NOT happen to a member of the Bush family first? Just doesn’t seem right…
