Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance (R) speaks at the podium as U.S. Vice President Joe Biden and U.S. Attorney General Loretta B. Lynch look on with actress Mariska Hargitay (L) during an news conference in New York, September 10, 2015. The three were announcing the award of approximately $80 million in grants to eliminate backlogs of untested sexual assault evidence kits or "rape kits."
You have the right to remain starstruck: It’s Vice President Joe Biden on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”
Biden will be in New York on Friday to tape an episode of the long-running NBC series. The White House says Biden’s appearance on the episode will focus on the backlog in processing rape kits and efforts to prevent violence against women.
Biden has frequently teamed up with the show’s star, Mariska Hargitay, for events raising awareness about the issues. She narrated a biographical video about Biden that aired just before his speech Wednesday at the Democratic National Convention.
The White House hasn’t said when the episode will air.
