Whoops! Despite the Left's Never Ending Attack on Justice Thomas for Taking Vacations Paid for By Friends, Joe Biden Just "Accidentally" Forgot to Disclose Vacations Paid for By His Political Cronies

I'm sure it's all just a big mistake.

President Biden failed again to note his free stays at the vacation homes of rich patrons on annual ethics forms made public this week -- making the omission days after ProPublica was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for chronicling Supreme Court justices' non-disclosures under the same transparency rule.

Biden took four vacations at the homes of wealthy supporters in 2023, none of which were listed as gifts on the forms signed by the president. The annual paperwork must be submitted by federal officeholders -- including judges and presidents -- under the Ethics in Government Act of 1978.

"If there's a deliberate omission of a gift, an intentional lie, that can very well be prosecuted as a criminal offense," said Richard Painter, who served as chief White House ethics lawyer under President George W. Bush.

"It just seems to me to be stupid to leave it off the form because everyone knows about [presidential] trips and everyone's going to ask who paid," added Painter, who ran unsuccessfully for Congress as a Democrat in 2018 and 2022.

Yes, it's just stupid. It's not deliberate lawbreaking. Just an oopsie.

"So you either have to pay for the house, make sure the owner is present or put it on the form. Those are your three options."

Biden and his family began and ended 2023 with free stays over the New Year's holiday at the beachfront St. Croix home of Bill and Connie Neville, which is typically listed as a VRBO rental.

Bill Neville is the founder of the US Viking software company, which makes an online content platform called ENPS marketed by The Associated Press and used by various news outlets.

Biden also enjoyed a six-day Thanksgiving stay at billionaire hedge fund founder David Rubenstein's Nantucket compound last year and nine days in August at billionaire climate investor Tom Steyer's waterfront Lake Tahoe retreat in Nevada.

Biden's time at Rubenstein's compound is believed to have been unpaid, though neither party has confirmed it.

This is a lame post but I'll put another one up quickly.
