Federal filings show that a cancer charity started by former Vice President Joe Biden spent no money on research, but lots on salaries.
In 2017, Biden announced that as a supposed tribute to his son, Beau, who died of brain cancer in 2015, the Biden Cancer Initiative would “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 the New York Post
The Post reported that IRS filings showed the group took in $4,809,619 in contributions
