Nothing Out of the Ordinary


From the Daily Mail:

Vice President Joe Biden’s costly trip to London and Paris last month just got more expensive.

A newly uncovered receipt from the February trip shows the vice president’s office spent $321,665 to a limousine company in Paris, in addition to the previously reported hotel tabs of $585,000 for one night’s stay in the city and and $459,338 for a night in London.

State department officials say Biden’s staff members, who are not allowed to drive themselves, used the limo company to get around the city. Biden’s limousine was flown in from the U.S.

The limo bill was first reported by CNN after the Weekly Standard discovered the hotel bills online, where federal officials had posted contract filings for the expenses.

During his trip in late February, Biden spent the night at two five-star hotels – one night at the Hyatt Regency London for a total of $459,338.65 and another night at the Hotel Intercontinental Paris Le Grand for $585,000.50.

A State Department official told ABC News that the costs are ‘nothing out of the ordinary.’
