Airplane Joe Biden stiffed me!

http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/bidendebt.asp

Comment: This just came in to me from a guy that sends a lot of right wing
trash. Any truth to it?

------------------------------------------

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 of 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 manage
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
and trust.
