"Scandal for the White House after Vice President Joe Biden's daughter is 'caught on tape snorting cocaine'
The daughter of U.S. Vice President Joe Biden was at the centre of a storm last night after allegedly being caught on tape taking cocaine.
In the video footage, a woman resembling 27-year-old Ashley Biden is seen snorting lines of white powder at a house party this month in her home state of Delaware, according to the New York Post.
The alleged drug video is the first scandal to taint the Obama White House and comes as a personal embarrassment to Mr Biden, an outspoken anti-drugs campaigner. He had no comment on the allegations yesterday.

Scandal: Ashley Biden, pictured with her father Joe at the Inaugural Parade, has allegedly been filmed snorting cocaine
Miss Biden, a child welfare social worker who was often seen with her father on the election campaign trail, was unavailable for comment yesterday. The recording, seen by several news agencies, allegedly shows a man cutting up lines of what appears to be cocaine.
Moments later, a woman identified by the lawyer selling the tape as Miss Biden, jokes that the lines aren't big enough, according to website RadarOnline. The site says an unidentified man hands her a rolled-up dollar bill and she pulls back her hair, bends down and snorts three of the lines....
If the woman in the video does prove to be Miss Biden, it will not be her first brush with scandal. In 2002, she was arrested for obstructing a police officer after a friend threw a soft drink can outside a Chicago bar. She allegedly tried to block the officer from arresting her friend and made some threatening remarks.
The charge was dropped after she made a public apology. According to reports, she was also arrested for marijuana possession ten years ago when she was a student in New Orleans, but the charge was again dropped.
