Under the category of: Mmmmmm. Something doesn’t seem right.

The Associated Press reports that the U.S. Secret Service, which protects  VP Joe Biden,  is paying Biden $2,200 a month to rent a cottage next to his suburban Wilimington, Del., home.

Records show Biden has collected more than $13,000 since April on the cottage, and is eligible to collect up to $66,000 before the contract expires in 2013, AP reported.

Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan told the Washington Times:  “It’s a rental property so we pay rent there.”

Citizens Against Government Waste’s Leslie Paige said you would think with Biden so deeply involved in the deficit talks that he would think twice about charging the government agency, AP reported.

Yes, you would think.
