Biden to pay $219,000 fine to FEC

Vice President Joseph Biden’s 2008 presidential campaign owes more than $219,000 to the government, according to the Federal Election Commission (FEC).

In an audit released Friday, the FEC said Biden’s 2008 White House election bid accepted an illegal in-kind campaign contribution by accepting a ride on a corporate jet and only paying the first-class rate, not the more expensive charter rate. In addition, the then-Delaware senator’s presidential campaign was plagued by some messy record-keeping that led to prohibited excessive campaign contributions from individual donors.
