In 2011, when Naomi Biden, the daughter of Hunter Biden and granddaughter of then-Vice President Joe Biden, was 17 years old and working as a Senate page for Nevada Senator Harry Reid, she allegedly defaced the walls around the historic dome of the United States Capitol. During a tour of the Capitol dome, which is a privilege usually reserved for members of Congress and their guests, Naomi and a fellow page reportedly carved their names into the stone.
According to former staffers of Senator Reid, architects had to be brought in to buff out the vandalism, and it was considered an act of vandalism. Joe Biden was reportedly informed of the misbehavior.
Hunter Biden, in an attempt to address the situation, sent an email to Elizabeth Roach, the boss of the Senate page program, apologizing for Naomi’s behavior and stating that it was not malicious.
Naomi Biden appears to have faced few formal consequences for the incident. She later accompanied her grandfather, Vice President Joe Biden, on a trip to China in August 2011. After her Senate stint, she pursued higher education and a career in international arbitration law.
It’s worth noting that this incident occurred when Naomi Biden was a teenager, and her actions at that time may not necessarily reflect her behavior or character as an adult.
