Las Vegas and online bookmakers are taking bets on the potential source of the ‘CocaineGate’ scandal emanating from the White House, with Hunter Biden appearing as the principal suspect, based on live betting odds.
SportsBetting oddsmaker James Gardner stated, “Hunter’s drug history — plus his access to the White House — made him a natural pick as favourite.”
The White House was briefly evacuated after a bag of white powder, later identified as cocaine, was found in a publicly accessible area. The Secret Service called the evacuation “precautionary,” with the DC fire department called in to help identify the substance. Hunter Biden, with a well-documented history of drug addiction, is being considered a potential source due to his proximity and history.
Gardner explains, “I’m afraid Hunter puts himself into the frame as a pretty strong candidate,” revealing that names were chosen based on recent access to the White House. Betting activity has been intense and divisive. “People are taking pretty strong views on Hunter, saying he should be 10-to-1 not 2-to-1,” he shared.
However, Hunter Biden is not the only suspect. Others include Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, actress Angelina Jolie, rapper Snoop Dogg, celebrity chef Edward Lee, heiress Paris Hilton, and even President Biden himself. The odds fluctuate wildly from 2-to-1 to 150-to-1.
