There have been a flurry of stories over the past couple days reporting on allegations that a “friend” of Vice President Biden’s 27-year-old daughter, Ashley, is trying to peddle a video tape of the Veep’s offspring snorting cocaine.
We’ll leave aside the significance of that blow to the Biden family pride for the moment, but want to focus on a sidebar story. According to various press accounts, a lawyer representing the “friend” approached several news media outlets and showed them snippets seeking bids on the full video.
But today RadarOnline.com reports that the lawyer, Tom Dunlap, of the esteemed firm of Dunlap, Grubb and Weaver, dropped the candid camera operator as a client. Dunlap reportedly told the website that he:
“…did not want to be involved due to circumstances surrounding the publicity of the matter”
News flash for Mr. Dunlap: if you are concerned about publicity, it is best to stay away from outfits like the New York Post and the National Enquirer. The prospect of the media blowing your cover, Mr. Dunlap, is nothing to sniff at.
