From a 2005 WBOC article:
A former campaign aide to Senator Joseph Biden, who admitted he stole money from Biden’s campaign treasury, was sentenced to more than three years in behind bars Thursday.
The felon, Roger Blevins, allegedly stole ~$412,000 from Senator Biden’s campaign coffers. He pled guilty to an $80,000 theft/inter-State transfer of funds and went to jail for three (3) years.
Compare this to Mr. William Hitch, who didn’t steal from a Biden but was being “prosecuted” by one. Mr. Hitch allegedly stole $151,000 from the Laurel School District (from money for the education of our children versus money for a political campaign — taxpayer money versus donations to a non-governmental entity).
The deal cut by AG Biden? Pay back the money and we’ll call it even. 96 felony counts were dropped. Mr. Hitch will not even pay a fine.
I bet that Mr. Blevins wishes that he had worked for a school district instead of a Biden political campaign.
