(Newser) – Aleksander Kwasniewski, a former Polish president and currently a board member for Ukrainian gas company Burisma, says Hunter Biden was chosen to join its advisory board because of his name and that is simply how the world of business works, the AP reports. But Kwasniewski insisted in an interview with the AP on Thursday that Biden was an active board member who helped the company, and that he never used his relationship with his father to further the company’s interests. He said: "I understand that if someone asks me to be part of some project it’s not only because I’m so good, it’s also because I am Kwasniewski and I am a former president of Poland. ... Being Biden is not bad. It's a good name." (Read more Burisma stories.)
