Biden's 2008 Campaign Fined $219K for Violations

Saturday, 17 Jul 2010 03:48 PM

Election watchdogs have fined Joe Biden's 2008 presidential campaign more than $219,000 for sloppy bookkeeping and accepting excessive contributions, including a discounted flight on a private jet.

The audit by the Federal Election Commission was released Friday.

The report says the Biden campaign accepted an illegal corporate contribution in the form of a round-trip flight between New Hampshire and Iowa in June 2007 for three people. The Biden campaign paid $7,911 for the first-class airfare, but the FEC says the campaign should have paid the charter rate of $34,800.

Biden, who's now the vice president, was in the 2008 race for about a year. He dropped out in early 2008 after a poor showing in the Iowa caucuses.
