Vice President Biden Called For Jury Duty In Delaware

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Joseph Biden Jr. may be the vice president, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have to fulfill his civic duty.

Aides say Biden reported for jury duty Monday morning at the New Castle County courthouse after receiving a jury summons.

No word on whether he’ll actually be chosen to sit in on a trial.

Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan reported to jury duty last week in District of Columbia Superior Court but was not called to serve on a case.

    Does anybody honestly believe that Joe or Elena would ever be called to sit on a jury panel???? I hear that nonsense every time I am called to Philly jury duty when the judge states everybody is eligible and does serve. Yea, they serve by showing up and then somehow they seem to fade away out of the jury pool. I think VP Biden and Justice Kagen should serve only to show that they are not above the “common folk” and then refuse the amazing stipend of 9.00/day!!!

    If they’re smart, they won’t pick him for any cases for fear of something STUPID coming out of his mouth.
