Vice President Joe Biden Charges Tax-Funded Secret Service Agents to Live in His Cottage

Vice President Joe Biden is charging rent to his taxpayer-funded Secret Service protection so the agents can live in a cottage next to his house in Delaware, The Inquisitr reports.

Under the rental agreement, which was discovered when the vice president filed his tax return, Biden receives $2,200 a month, the same rate he apparently charged other tenants, according to The Inquisitr.

This arrangement seems bizarre to me,” Citizens Against Government Waste spokeswoman Lesile Paige said. “You’d think the vice president, who shepherded the deficit committee, would think twice about charging the Secret Service rent. Why would he need the money? I don’t get it.”

A 46-year-old man questioned in the killings of two Texas county prosecutors remained behind bars Sunday following an arrest on charges of making a terrorist threat, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Investigators have questioned Eric Williams, a former justice of the peace, several times but authorities have not identified him as a suspect in the murder of Assistant District Attorney Mark Haase or the slayings of Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife. 

“We have not named any suspects, prime suspects, or persons of interest in the case,” Lt. Justin Lewis, a spokesman with the Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office, said on Sunday. “The investigation continues and all leads and tips continue to be worked.”

Lawmakers are mulling tougher border security measures designed to discourage undocumented immigrants from crossing the border, Reuters reports.

But for the estimated 11 million who have already entered the country illegally, a path to citizenship may be possible under the proposal, said Senator Marco Rubio, a leader on immigration reform.

“What we have in place today is not good for anyone except human traffickers and people who are hiring illegal aliens and paying them less than American workers,” Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, a leader on immigration reform, said on Fox News Sunday. “This is an issue that needs to be solved.”

More details are expected to emerge by Tuesday.

FBI Agent Gerard Conrad was just taking a stroll in Forest Park in Queens when he stumbled upon a meeting between top Gambino mobster Bartolomeo (Bobby) Vernace and others involved in the crime family, the New York Daily News reports.

Conrad happened to be supervising 15 agents who were investigating the crime family when he made the discovery on a warm 2006 day: “I saw three made members of the Gambino family and two associates of the family the park,” the agent said.

Conrad called for a camera, and the photos are now a critical piece of evidence in a racketeering trial, the Daily News reported.

Border Patrol agents are willing to give up increased overtime pay in exchange for not being furloughed as part of the mandated federal spending cuts, the Washington Post reports.

“The reform I have just proposed saves tax dollars, reduces overtime pay and brings about financial certainty to both the Border Patrol agents and the agency alike,” National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd said at a hearing of the House Homeland Security Committee’s subcommittee on oversight and management efficiency.

The plan also calls for a base-pay increase.

The department would save the department $40 million in the first year, Judd said.

New unmanned spy aircraft that flies over remote stretches of desert shows the U.S.-Mexico border isn’t as secure as the agency has claimed, the Center for Investigative Reporting reports.

Records show more than 7,000 border crossers were detected by drones, but only 410 people were apprehended. Of those, 52 led to arrests, the Center for Investigative Reporting reported.

The sensors can detect people from a height of about 25,000 feet.

The technology sheds uncomfortable light on the Border Patrol’s effectiveness at apprehending illegal crossers.
