According to this 2003 report, a campaign aide allegedly embezzled hundreds of thousands of dollars from Senator Joe Biden’s campaign account.
Roger D. Blevins III, the campaign aide accused of embezzling hundreds of thousands of dollars from U.S. Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s treasury, is said by federal authorities to have spent the money for the high life — a surprising contradiction to his reputation for modest living.
Blevins, 32, of Elsmere, was indicted Wednesday by a federal grand jury on 20 counts of interstate transfer of stolen property, a crime that carries a maximum prison sentence of 10 years, according to U.S. Attorney Colm F. Connolly.
The indictment comes about two weeks since Blevins was arrested by the FBI, after Biden’s staff went to federal authorities with suspicions about embezzling that drained its account of $350,000, essentially all that was left from a $3-million re-election victory for Delaware’s senior Democratic senator last year.
