Newark resident Pamela Hamill wants a public apology from vice presidential candidate U.S. Sen. Joseph Biden (D-Del.), who she says has repeatedly besmirched her late father, Curtis C. Dunn.
Dunn was the tractor-trailer driver involved in the December 1972 accident that took the life of the newly-elected U.S. Senator’s first wife, Neilia, and 13-month-old daughter, Naomi.
Dunn died in 1999, but his daughter says she’s fed up with Biden publicly mischaracterizing him as having been drunk when the accident occurred.
According to Delaware Superior Court Judge Jerome O. Herlihy, who oversaw the police investigation 36 years ago as chief prosecutor, there is no evidence supporting Biden’s claim.
CBS News reports that in 2007, Biden told a crowd on the stump that the driver “allegedly...drank his lunch”.
Delaware Superior Court Judge Jerome O. Herlihy told CBS News in the report “there was no indication that the truck driver had been drinking”.
PJ Media’s Stephen Green reports “After an exhaustive online search, I can find no mention of Biden ever apologizing to Hamill or to her family.”
