COMPANY: ‘No Record’ of Biden’s Claim That They Gave Him His First Job Offer

'We checked our system internally, and nothing has turned up...'

An Idaho lumber company that President Joe Biden claims gave him his first job offer said this week it has “no record” of such an offer being made.

During an event in Boise on Monday, Biden said he told his former Senate colleague Frank Church, a Democrat who represented Idaho from 1957 to 1981, about the job offer from Boise Cascade and how it almost convinced him to move to the state.

“I used to tell Frank Church this: I got a — my first job offer, where I wanted — my wife, deceased wife and I wanted to move to Idaho because … it’s such a beautiful, beautiful state. And I interviewed for a job at Boise Cascade,” Biden said. “And in the meantime, there was a war going on. Anyway. But the whole point was that I used to always kid Frank.”

However, Boise Cascade said it has no record of any offer being given to Biden.

“We have no record of President Biden’s application or of him having worked for the company,“ the company’s spokeswoman Lisa Tschampl told the New York Post. “We checked our system internally, and nothing has turned up.”

Tschampl added Biden’s application could have been lost since this event supposedly took place more than 50 years ago.

“We had a diverse portfolio in the 60s and early 70s … so my guess is any records have been purged or transferred for the businesses/projects we are no longer involved in,” Tschampl said. “I would not want to speculate about what type of role he may have applied for in 1972. Today we are a wood products manufacturer and wholesale distributor of building materials.”

Biden did not specify what kind of job he applied for with Boise Cascade, or what year it was.

He graduated Syracuse Law School in 1968, started work as a law clerk in Delaware that same year, and joined the New Castle County Council in 1970.

His memoir does not mention the company or a desire to move to Idaho.
