Joe Biden’s younger sister, Valerie Biden Owens will kick off her book tour Thursday night in Washington, D.C., ahead of the release of her memoir next week.

Valerie’s book tour could make a huge headache for the White House. Her continuous crash on her brother’s political career conflicts with White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki’s statement last January about the White House’s ethics policy.

Psaki said last January, “It’s the White House’s policy that the President’s name should not be used in connection with any commercial activities to suggest or in any way – in any way they could reasonably be understood to imply his endorsement or support.”

Fox News reported:

Valerie Biden Owens, a longtime campaign adviser and political confidante to Biden, will be releasing her memoir titled, “Growing Up Biden: A Memoir” next Tuesday. The book includes a childhood photo of her, Joe Biden, their two brothers, and their mother on the book cover. Not only did Owens serve as Biden’s campaign manager for all seven of his successful Senate campaigns, but she also advised Biden during all three presidential campaigns and has played an integral role in his family’s life.

The upcoming book tour and expected media blitz of Owens’ memoir about growing up as a Biden comes a little over a year after the transition team’s lawyers told Vice President-elect Harris’s niece she could no longer produce clothing or write any new books with Harris’s name or likeness, the Los Angeles Times reported in early 2021.

During Biden’s second presidential campaign in 2007 and 2008, Owens served as her brother’s national campaign chair. It does not appear that Biden’s campaign paid her directly, but the Democratic consulting firm Joe Slade White & Company, where Owens was serving as an “Executive Vice President,” raked in over $2.5 million from Biden’s presidential campaign and the “Citizens for Biden” committee between March 2007 and October 2008.

Owens’ daughter, Valerie J. Owens, who goes by “Missy,” also cashed in by working for her uncle’s presidential campaign, where she made tens of thousands of dollars.

Joe Biden’s other family members also benefited a lot from him. Fox News also noted that aside from Valerie and her daughter, her husband, Jack, who has known Joe Biden since their law school days at Syracuse also took advantage of Joe’s position in the government.
