JOE BIDEN TURNS DOWN CONNECTICUT TEEN'S PROM INVITATION..BUT SENDS HER A CORSAGE AND INVITES HER TO THE WHITE HOUSE
Vice President Joe Biden turned down a Connecticut teenager's prom invitation - but instead sent her a corsage and invited her to the White House.Â Talia Maselli, 18, wrote a letter to Biden seven months ago inviting him to be her date and edge out any competition. “I am inviting you so far in advance because I'm sure many 17-year-old girls send you prom invitations, and I had to beat them to it,” she wrote. “I could only tolerate a high school dance if I was to be escorted by the most delightful man in America.” Biden was unable to attend - but he had a handpicked corsage and handwritten note sent to her homeÂ the day before the big dance.Â “I am flattered, but my schedule will not permit me to be in Connecticut on Friday evening,” the note read. “But I hope you will accept this corsage and enjoy your prom as much as I did mine.”
