Got Stiffed by Joe Biden-
Summary of the eRumor: An angry email from a CPA claiming Joe Biden
failed to pay for his 1988 Presidential campaign finance disclosure
agreement and air time. The email called Biden a liar and a cheat,
racking up thousands of dollars in unpaid debts.
This email is authentic, but
the author told TruthOrFiction.com that the matter has been resolved
between him and Joe Biden and that part of the bill has been paid.
The eRumor began circulating in August, 2008.
Bruce Riddle is a Certified Public Accountant whose was hired by Biden's
1988 presidential campaign to prepare required financial disclosures.
Riddle said he never got paid $15,000 that was owed.
Riddle is also affiliated with a jet charter company that he said Biden
used in a presidential campaign but after the campaign ended, Biden
failed to pay $150,000 in costs for chartering jet flights.
Riddle told TruthOrFiction.com that since the time he sent out the
email, Biden has paid the bill for the jet flights and Riddle decided to
write-off the other bill because it was from so long ago.
This was another occasion of what we describe as someone becoming an
unintentional internet celebrity. Riddle sent this email to a handful
of family members. He never intended for it to go public. But it got
forwarded and has circulated all over the English speaking world.
Riddle said he'd been getting hundreds of phone calls and emails each
day from people asking about the eRumor and was having a tough time
getting his work done!
His plea is that people stop forwarding it.
A real example of the eRumor as it has
appeared on the Internet:
HIS REPORT BY A CPA SHOULD BE CHECKED. IF TRUE, IT IS
Family, I feel an obligation to honesty and truth to share with you
some facts. My Father and Mother instilled in me the values and morals
treating people fairly and always being honest. If you purchase
something, you pay for it. If you borrow something, you give it back.
I have been "stiffed" three times in my 30 year professional career by
someone who I rendered services to, gave a finished product to, but who
refused to pay for those services even though they acknowledged the
services and products were correct, were what they asked for, and were
never challenged for not being correct. I am lucky in having only
three, but those three hurt badly.
Joe Biden was one of those people. I worked on his 1988 Presidential
campaign financial disclosure engagement. I busted it for him and got
everything right. He stiffed me for over $15,000 worth of work. He
refused to pay once he dropped out of the race. I did similar Capitol
Hill campaign financial disclosure work for Bob Dole, Pat Buchanan, and
a Democratic candidate for Ambassador to New Zealand. All of those folks
paid even though they lost the election or did not get the appointment.
That type of work is very demanding and very tedious because your
efforts are scrutinized by Congress. Biden did not care.
I am on the Board of Directors of a company that owns a majority
position in a private jet management company in Northern Virginia. They
jets for businesses and rich folks. They also charter planes to the
public. This past winter John Thompson chartered over $250,000 worth of
air time. He paid every penny.
Joe Biden, in his latest unsuccessful run for President, chartered over
$150,000 worth of air time. He PAID ZERO. He continues to refuse to pay
stating his race is over and he is out of money. He never once
complained about his flights. Joe Biden is a rich man. He could pay.
Joe Biden is a liar and a cheat. I know it first hand. Character is what
life is all about. Joe Biden is a man of bad character and sets a bad
example for America.
I feel compelled to share this dark side of a man who asks for your vote
