Reports say that the video showing the Vice President’s daughter Ashley Biden snorting cocaine is actually a set up. According to a website the man responsible for the unsubstantiated episode was a friend of the vice president’s daughter and brought the cocaine and the hidden camera.

The tape was brought for sale around media outlets at a minimum of $250,000 shows a woman who looks like Vice President Biden’s 27 year old daughter Ashley snorting cocaine. A lawyer from Washington was to sell the tape on behalf of its owner but he has said he will not sell it now. It is reported that the maker of the video wanted to show that the woman on tape was doing drugs for at least three weeks. The tape was shot at a party in Wilmington, Del, this year.

The tape shows a woman resembling the Vice President’s daughter using a rolled up dollar bill to snort three lines of cocaine as a young man, identified as her boyfriend watches from behind. She also complains that the lines are not big enough before snorting again. The camera appears to follow her around and at one point the woman screams, “Shut the f*** up!”

Allegedly the maker of the video and his lawyer took the tape to The Post and showed them a 90-second snippet of it, saying that the video was obtained legally and that Ashley Biden knew that they were shooting her do he drugs. The Post did not entertain the seller and asked him to leave without paying a single penny for the video.

The Bidens have declined to comment on this matter.
