Hunter Biden Denies Link to Ashley Madison Account With His Email Address

hunter bidenWith so many names released in the Ashley Madison data hack, many prominent figures have denied having accounts, and argued that the profiles were made by discreditors or those using an alias.

Joe Biden‘s son Robert Hunter Biden, apparently, is one of them.

Breitbart News reported on Monday that they found an account with Biden’s name on it, as well as a link to one of his old email addresses. While the birthdate is off by about 10 years, and the credit card referenced his first name rather than his preferred middle, the discovered profile described Biden as an “attached male” who said in his list of turn-ons, “anything goes.”

Biden responded in a statement that the email address was his, but he retired it years ago when he thought it was compromised by outside parties. Without listing any specific incidents, he also said this was not the first time he has heard of someone using his identity for what he assumed was an attack on his reputation.

“This account was clearly set up by someone else without my knowledge and I first learned about the account in question from the media,” Biden said. “From my understanding through press accounts, it is very easy to set up an account without someone’s knowledge as there is no requirement that an email address be verified and I am certain that is what happened in this case.”
