Joe's been fined by the FEC
FEC fines Biden more than $200,000 for violations

http://www.cnn.com/2010/POLITICS/07/17/biden.campaign.f...

My take (naturally on Joe's side) is that they probably weren't on top of it all as they should have been -- he had a small crew! And I think the reimbursement for the private jet was made in good faith -- the same amount as first class commercial fares.

Anyhoo, it seems like an awfully big fine for somebody who didn't raise all that much money.

I have no doubt he did NOT try to hide anything -- by accepting public funds he knew he'd be audited.
