    Looks like Biden took a page out of the Clinton playbook by having a bogus charity whose purpose is to pay off friends. I wonder what would have happened if this came out a few weeks ago?

    A cancer charity started by Joe Biden gave out no money to research, and spent most of its contributions on staff salaries, federal filings show.

    The Biden Cancer Initiative was founded in 2017 by the former vice president and his wife Jill Biden to “develop and drive implementation of solutions to accelerate progress in cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis, research and care and to reduce disparities in cancer outcomes,” according to its IRS mission statement. But it gave out no grants in its first two years, and spent millions on the salaries of former Washington DC aides it hired.

    The charity took in $4,809,619 in contributions in fiscal years 2017 and 2018, and spent $3,070,301 on payroll in those two years. The group’s president, Gregory Simon, raked in $429,850 in fiscal 2018 (July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019), according to the charity’s most recent federal tax filings.

    Simon, a former Pfizer executive and longtime health care lobbyist who headed up the White House’s cancer task force in the Obama administration, saw his salary nearly double from the $224,539 he made in fiscal 2017, tax filings show.

    Danielle Carnival, former chief of staff for Obama’s cancer initiative, the Cancer Moonshot Task Force, who took home $258,207 in 2018.

    The charity spent $56,738 on conferences and $59,356 on travel that year. The following year, the travel expenditure swelled to $97,149, and the non-profit spent $742,953 on conferences, tax filings show.
    But under grants distributed, it listed zero.

    Simon had said that the main point of the charity was not to give out grants, and that its goal was to find ways to accelerate treatment for all, regardless of their economic or cultural backgrounds.

    Biden headed up the Cancer Moonshot Task Force when he was veep after his son Beau died of a brain tumor in 2015. After leaving office, the Biden Cancer Initiative sought to continue such efforts to provide “urgent” solutions to treating cancer, according to a 2017 press statement announcing its launch.

    The Bidens stacked the board with leading oncologists and celebrity cancer survivors, including musician Jimmy Gomez from the Black Eyed Peas.

    After only two years, the charity “paused” its operations when Biden and his wife stepped down for Joe Biden’s presidential run.

    Although the organization is still officially active, according to the IRS, Simon said in a 2019 interview that without the Bidens at the helm, the charity lost its edge.

    “We tried to power through but it became increasingly difficult to get the traction we needed to complete our mission,” he told the AP in July 2019.

    Neither Simon nor Biden could be reached for comment last week.

    if there intended goal wasn’t to give grants and research being its target..I’m not sure what the controversy is. From the way I saw it,it was a think tank (bloated one) not an r/d fund. Either way,to answer your question..this definitely wouldn’t have impacted the election.

    “twas a “nothingburger”
    (I’ve been waiting to say that for awhile)

    Yup. But this will be ignored and instead we'll hear "BDS" from our intelligent side of the War Room.

    The cancer indistrial complex is a total disgrace. Anyone who has a cancer charity has been proved to be a total and unequivicol dirtbag. From Biden to Susan g Koman to Lance Armstrong. Fuck them all to hell.

    Well... At least this wasn't as bad as what he and Hunter did in their Quid Pro Joe Ukraine extortion.

    Biden is the most evil, racists and morally bankrupt POTUS in history. 64M dead and alive voted for him.

    Sounds like something a congressional investigation could be held on.

    I agree that it looks like a shit foundation..all I’m saying is the controversy isn’t really a gotcha moment. Just looks like some bloated charity that didn’t go anywhere after Biden left.

    Yeah this.
    Another NY Post story preying on people who are dumb as fucking shit and have no idea how charities operate.

    THAT SAID; the entire 501(c)3 / tax-exempt organization industry is crooked as all fuck.
    They just don't give a rat's ass about exposing it, just some "look Biden has da charity AND IT GAVE NO GRANTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
