Joe Biden is under fire once again after a new report has surfaced showing his cancer foundation has spent millions of dollars on staff salaries but absolutely nothing on actual cancer research to help patients.

Biden and his wife Jill Biden started The Biden Cancer Initiative in 2017 two years after his son beau’s child died from a brain tumor.

However, as a report in the New York Times shows, Biden’s cacner charity did not distribute grants or distribute any funds for cancer studies or research in its first two years — but invested millions of dollars recruiting former Obama-Biden administration assistants as staff people.

According to the New York Post.

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.

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 nonprofit spent $742,953 on conferences, tax filings show.

But under grants distributed, it listed zero.

Nick Kangadis of the Media Research Center commented on the findings and condemned Biden for his duplicity.

“Biden and his campaign have been highly critical of President Donald Trump’s response to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, often claiming that the president should have done more to help Americans financially and acted in a more timely manner. That kind of criticism is difficult to explain when your own charity didn’t allocate a single grant to any cancer research or cancer care facilities,” he said.
