The explosive video that purports to show Vice President Joe Biden’s daughter Ashley snorting cocaine was shot with a hidden camera, RadarOnline.com has learned.
And as the scandal grows, the lawyer trying to peddle the tape while representing the man who shot it has quit.
Tom Dunlap, an attorney for the Washington, D.C. firm Dunlap, Grubb and Weaver has dropped the seller of the tape as a client.
Dunlap told RadarOnline.com early Sunday that he is no longer involved in the attempted sale of the video and informed his client he would not continue to represent him. The lawyer said he did not want to be involved due to circumstances surrounding the publicity of the matter.
On Saturday, RadarOnline.com broke the story that a video showing a woman who is allegedly Ashley Biden snorting cocaine has been shopped to several media entities. The woman on the tape appears identical to 27-year-old Ashley.
The New York Post, a British newspaper and the National Enquirer were shown the tape and asked to bid on it. RadarOnline.com has seen the video, but did not offer to pay for it.
The woman in the tape looks identical to Ashley and is clearly seen snorting several lines of white powder.
Despite contrary reports, RadarOnline.com has learned that the tape was shot with a hidden camera by the seller and made without the knowledge of the woman who is said to be the vice president’s daughter.
Our viewing of portions of the tape is consistent with that. The low, tilted angle of the camera and the actions of the woman both indicate the camera was not in plain view.
The tape was shot last month at a party in a house in Wilmington, Delaware.
We have also learned that the seller of the tape did not receive any written bids for it.
Ashley is the youngest of three siblings. She is also the only child of Joe and his second wife Jill.
Attempts to reach Ashley for comment have been unsuccessful.
The vice president has been a leader in the war on drugs, created the Drug Czar post and sponsored much anti-drug legislation.
