U-Haul Truck Holding Equipment for Biden Event Stolen

Posted by on Sep 03, 2012 at 10:08 am

We’d really be in luck if Biden was in the truck with the equipment. These really are the best and brightest we’ve got. Who would leave a truck unattended in Detroit? Fortunately for Biden his talking points were left in the truck, so he might actually make some sense now.

A U-Haul truck containing equipment for a campaign event for Vice President Joe Biden was stolen in downtown Detroit Saturday night.

Secret Service spokesman Edward Donovan said the theft would not “affect the visit at all,” according to media reports.

“We would never compromise the security of a visit,” Donovan said.

Reports said the agency had rented the truck to help move equipment. Agents left the vehicle in downtown Saturday evening and found it missing on Sunday.

Donovan said Detroit police were investigating the theft. “It’s a local matter at this point,” he said. “We’ll work with them.”

The vice president is scheduled to speak at a Labor Day campaign event in Detroit on Monday.

I wonder if they’ll have Junior Hoffa come out and call for violence again this year?
