    A friend of the daughter of Vice President Joseph Biden is attempting to hawk a videotape that he claims shows Ashley Biden snorting cocaine at a house party this month in Delaware.

    An anonymous male "friend" of Biden took the video, said Thomas Dunlap, a lawyer representing the seller. Dunlap and another man claiming to be a lawyer showed The Post about 90 seconds of 43-minute tape, saying it was legally obtained and that Biden was aware she was being filmed. The Post refused to pay for the video.

    The video shows a 20-something woman with light skin and long brown hair taking a red straw from her mouth and bending over a desk, inserting the straw into her nostril and snorting from lines of white powder.

    She then stands up and begins talking with other people in the room. A young man looks on from behind her, facing the camera. The lawyers said he was Biden's boyfriend of some years.

    The camera follows the woman from a few feet away, focusing on her as she moves around the room. It appears not to be concealed. At one point she shouts, "Shut the fñ-ñ-ñ- up!"

    The woman appears to resemble the 27-year-old Biden, a social worker who was a visible presence during her father's campaign for the White House.

    The dialogue is difficult to discern, but the woman makes repeated references to the drugs, said the lawyers, who said they viewed the tape about 15 times.

    "At one point she pretty much complains that the line isn't big enough," said the second lawyer, who declined to identify himself. "And she talks about her dad."

    Vice President Biden has been an outspoken crusader against drugs, coining the term "Drug Czar" while campaigning for a more forceful "war on drugs" in 1982.

    The lawyers declined to name the person who shot the video, but said he knew Ashley Biden well and had attended other parties with her at which there were illegal drugs. The lawyers said the shooter used a camera with a hard-drive that he later destroyed, drilling into the device and tossing it into a lake.

    The woman in the video acknowledges the camera in a way that makes it clear she knows she's being taped, the lawyers said, waving at it during a part of the video not shown to The Post.

    No one else in the video is seen using the drugs. The portion of the tape shown to The Post ends shortly after the woman's alleged ingestion.

    The shooter claims that he previously tape-recorded Biden at a party in August but was unsuccessful in his attempts to sell that video, they said.

    A US media company offered $250,000 for the footage and access to the person who shot the tape, according to the lawyers. Another company, based overseas, offered $225,000, they said. The video shooter was hoping to get $2 million for the footage, then lowered his expectation to $400,000, they said.

    The unnamed lawyer hinted that his client had additional information that could embarrass the vice president's daughter.

    "The higher the price, the more he'll reveal," said the lawyer.

    The lawyers said the video shooter was afraid of being identified and prosecuted for his role in the alleged drug use. "He's got a criminal defense attorney," said Dunlap.

    The other lawyer said Biden didn't have secret service protection at the time of the party because she complained about agents blocking her driveway.

    "She complained to her dad about it and he got rid of them," he said.

    WORLD EXCLUSIVE: Vice President Biden’s Daughter Caught Up In Cocaine Scandal

    An explosive video being shopped to media outlets has plunged the White House and Vice President Joe Biden into a cocaine scandal, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.

    The video shows a woman, who is represented by the seller and his attorneys to be Biden’s daughter Ashley, snorting several lines of cocaine.

    The tape has been viewed by a RadarOline.com freelance reporter who confirms the woman looks identical to Ashley Biden.

    A law firm in Washington, D.C. is representing the seller of the tape in brokering a deal and several news organizations have seen the footage.

    In addition to RadarOnline.com, representatives for a major metropolitan daily U.S. newspaper, a large British newspaper and the National Enquirer have all viewed the tape.

    The woman on the tape clearly resembles Ashley Biden, 27, who is a social worker employed with the Delaware Department of Children, Youth and Families. She is also a board member of the Delaware YWCA organization.

    The tape was shot this year.

    On the tape a man cuts up five lines of what is said to be cocaine. The woman who the seller says is Ashley then jokes with the man that the lines aren’t big enough.

    The man hands her a rolled-up dollar bill and she proceeds to walk a few steps to a table where the cocaine is cut. She pulls her hair back, bends down and snorts a line.

    Four lines of white powdery substance are clearly visible on the table, which is in front of a computer.

    After she snorts the first line, the woman said to be Ashley lifts her head and wipes her nose. She then snorts a second and third line before the tape cuts off.

    The tape was made without her knowledge. It is being shopped for $250,000.

    The events on the tape are represented as taking place at a party in Wilmington, Delaware and the woman said to be Ashley is with a boyfriend.

    The cocaine is done amid a party scene with loud music playing and several people talking at the same time.

    The tape is approximately two minutes in length.

    News clips show that Ashley Biden was once arrested for marijuana possession while she was a college student in New Orleans in 1999. The charges were later dismissed.

    In 2002, The Los Angeles Times reported that Ashley, then 21, was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of obstructing a police officer outside a Chicago bar.

    RadarOnline.com is attempting to reach Ashley Biden for comment.

    IF this is true, this is obviously an issue for the Biden family to handle in private, and I hope people give them their space to deal with it.

    I can't stand Biden and I think he's a raging idiot, but I'm not going to pile on him here for this.

    These kids of these high-profile politicians have enough to deal with without people putting their personal lives under a microscope. They didn't ask to be in the public eye, that's for sure.

    So this is a copy made after the original video was destroyed by the photographer by drilling a hole in the hard drive and throwing it in a lake.

    So we dont have the original, just some boot-leg copy and apparently the women never identifies herself as Biden's daughter, she only "appears to resemble" Biden's daughter. The photographer wanted $2 mill, then dropped his demands to $400,000 for this boot-leg copy of a girl that resembles Biden's daughter doing cocaine.

    Sorry, I find this very hard to believe.

    No kidding. Just like Palin and her daughters.

    Double Standards but I do agree that, like Sarah Palin, this should be an internal matter.

    Yeah, right. I'm sure you would feel the same way if it were Cheney's daughter os Bush's daughter.

    Why is it a private matter? Last time I checked, cocaine was illegal. That, my friend, makes it a public matter. And she works for social services. Which means she sould be fired.

    Maybe there's some sex tapes of her to go with it. That would be nice, very nice. Girls Gone Wild, VP Style.

    Don't care.

    Didn't care when Bush twins were off doing whatever it was they were accused of.

    Didn't care when Clinton had Cigar-gate.

    Etc, etc, etc.

    I am reserving judgement, but it will be interesting to hear a statement of denial.

    That's nice. He's probably a really nice guy. But, this is a time to attack Dems at any chance and take no prisoners. Unless, one is content with losing elections and watching the wretched Dems seize and exploit every opportunity.

    Expose the Democrats for the hypocrites they are.

    Innocent people are getting killed by drug gangs in Mexico who get their money from losers who do drugs. So, its more than just some "private matter" between some chick and her idiot daddy.

    I'd actually argue that your character is what dictates your actions.

    That said, I don't think that putting some powder in your nose is a sign of poor character.

    People like you are why politicians and politics in general suck. Playing these damn gotcha games. Some 27 year old doing lines of coke has nothing to do with "Democrats."

    This guy who's trying to sell this video is contemptible IMO. You're no different, because you're trying to capitalize on something, when in reality it's completely irrelevant.

    I am not sure I agree with you there... I mean, we're not just talking about some joint (which she's been busted for in the past).

    Don't get me wrong... I don't think using cocaine makes someone completely irredeemable for life... but I think it shows poor character and judgement at the time they are using it.

    I think the point was that you implied that DW would take a different stance if this story was about the daughters of Bush/Cheney. He wouldn't.

    Also, that's a completely warped way of looking at politics.
