Joseph Robinette "Beau" Biden III (February 3, 1969 – May 30, 2015) was an American politician, soldier, and lawyer from Wilmington, Delaware. He served as the Attorney General of Delaware and a Captain in the Delaware Army National Guard. He was a member of the Democrat Party and was the son of Vice President Joe Biden.
In Mid-January 2008, Larry Sinclair posted a video on YouTube regarding his specific allegations of sex and drug use with candidate Barack Obama. On 8 February 8, 2008, Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden filed an Indictment against Larry Sinclair charging him with theft of less than $1,000 and, anomalously, for an extradition warrant. In early March Larry Sinclair contacted an attorney for advice as he was receiving death threats after the murder of a homosexual member of Obama's church, Donald Young. On June 18, 2008, Sinclair held a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., alleging a sexual encounter and drug use with Barack Obama in 1999. Sinclair was arrested at the National Press Club on the Delaware warrant and extradited to Delaware five days later. Two months later, on August 23, Joe Biden was named by Barack Obama as his choice as the vice-presidential candidate. Five days later Beau Biden dropped the charges against Larry Sinclair on insufficient evidence and Sinclair was released from custody.
