Dear Ms. Ifill,
Remember that Joe Biden and Dickie Scruggs have big time ties. Fortunately, two days before he was selected to be Barack Obama’s running mate, Biden disgorged himself of Scruggs-related campaign $.
However, there is still a lot of evidence of close ties out there. Here is an invite from a Fundraiser held in Biden’s honor in Oxford. Also, here is Biden insulting Mississippians in a speech in Nashua, New Hampshire. He referenced his Oxford trip, albeit clumsily.
