"Bidens report giving fraction of income to charity
WASHINGTON - Senator Joe Biden of Delaware, the Democratic nominee for vice president, and his wife reported giving a fraction of 1 percent of their income to charity during the past decade, below the national average, tax records show.
A Biden spokesman said the couple has given more to charity than they claimed on their taxes.
Biden and his wife, Jill, earned $319,853 in adjusted gross income and paid $72,787 in federal taxes last year, including $2,721 in alternative minimum taxes. They claimed $995 in deductions for charitable giving. Biden is the least wealthy US senator.

How YOU DOIN', 'murkn?
Biden's running mate, Senator Barack Obama of Illinois, and Senator John McCain, the Republican presidential nominee, are millionaires.
