Frank Biden Now Listed on State Docs as Charter School President

It's official. Frank Biden, brother of the man second in line for the White House, is listed on state documents as president of the for-profit Mavericks in Education Florida charter school chain based in Fort Lauderdale.

Last month, when New Times broke the story about Biden's involvement with Mavericks, he was registered as a lobbyist for the company, but no state documents confirmed his claim that he was president and director of development.

But on December 5 -- two weeks after New Times raised questions about the paperwork -- Mavericks filed a new report with the Florida Secretary of State and listed Biden as president. Frank Attkisson, a former state representative who once ran a state commission designed to approve charter schools that were rejected by local school boards, is now vice president of Mavericks.
