Joe Biden Will Appear On ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’

Coming soon to your television set (or later to your Netflix binge): Vice President Joe Biden.

He’ll tape an appearance Friday on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” the popular and long-running procedural drama that focuses on sex crimes. Biden’s appearance will focus on the backlog of untested rape kits, according to the White House.

Combating violence against women has been one of the top issues of Biden’s political career. During his time as a senator from Delaware, he introduced the Violence Against Women Act, which eventually passed in 1994, and as vice president he has been involved in efforts to stop campus sexual assaults.

Biden has collaborated with “Law & Order: SVU” star Mariska Hargitay on advocacy efforts several times in the past. The two visited a domestic violence hotline together in 2013 and co-starred in a 2014 public service announcement. Hargitay narrated the video that played before Biden’s Democratic National Convention speech on Wednesday.

Biden announced plans last fall to award nearly $80 million in grants toward eliminating the backlog of untested rape kits, in a combined effort between the federal government and the New York County District Attorney’s office. Rape kits are containers that include information and specimens, such as blood samples and swabs, gathered in an exam after a sexual assault.

5. Joe!!!!

Maybe he's looking for, "what's after being Vice President of the United States?" Kind of like Fred Thompson with charisma, and hopefully some acting skills.

And BTW, everybody knows that he doesn't drive an SUV, he drives a Corvette and a vintage Trans Am.

(Nevermind!)
