V.P. Joe Biden is being paid by the Secret Service. That’s right the Veep is landlord for the agency protecting him at his Wilmington, Delaware cottage, near his home.

The Washington Times reports that Biden has collected $13,200 from the Secret Service since April for a cottage adjacent to his Wilmington, Del., that the agency uses for his protection.

Edwin M. Donovan, special agent in charge at the Secret Service’s Office of Government and Public Affairs in Washington says it is a unique situation. “We don’t pay rent to any other protectees,” but he added that the agency had wanted to be in close proximity to the vice president’s house. Officials had been renting other properties in the area when Biden’s cottage tenant moved out.

According to Mr. Biden’s office, the vice president’s mother lived in the cottage until her death January 2010. At that time, the Secret Service had been renting properties in the Wilmington area for agents who were providing a protective presence at Mr. Biden’s personal residence.
