Skip to comments.Vanity: Biden Mafia Connection
Posted on 11/08/2019 12:17:54 PM PST by TigerClaws
It was revealed in 2004 that in the week prior to Election Day in the 1972 United States Senate election in Delaware, an unidentified representative of the Biden campaign (described as the campaign's legal counsel) approached Teamsters Local 326 President - and Mafia hitman - Frank Sheeran about preventing the distribution of the Wilmington News Journal because Sen. Boggs was running an advertisement unflattering to Biden. In exchange for undisclosed considerations and because Sheeran felt "Biden was better for labor anyway," the Teamsters Union organized a strike preventing the newspapers from being delivered.
Additionally a shipment of newspaper printing materials had been sabotaged. As a result, the Wilmington News Journal was not distributed in the week prior to Election day. It is unclear whether Biden himself was aware of the plot but after the election Sheeran said he "could always reach out to [Biden] and he would listen."
Any journalists here to investigate further?
If your an elected official from the 30’s to the early 80’s in the Northeast from Boston to Philly you likely dealt either knowingly or unknowingly with mob figures. They were quite ubiquitous in their heyday.
I wonder what happened to Seth Rich?
This was in the book “I Heard You Paint Houses”, upon which the recent Scorcese movie, “The Irishman”, was based (Frank Sheeran is the Irishman). That part probably didn’t make it into the movie (wouldn’t know, didn’t see it.) But I read the book years ago and remember reading about how the Mafia/Teamsters (same difference) helped Sleepy Joe get elected to Congress.
I was a paper boy delivering the News Journal during this time.
I remember there being no papers, but did not really know why until now.
I’ve believed this for awhile now. The Mafia went deep into politics generations ago. Communism and socialism are just tools used by mafias to aggressively leverage political power. The same thing with global warming.
