Vice President Joe Biden is known for putting his foot in his mouth. Now, his staff is allegedly stuffing reporters in closets.
A Florida newspaper reporter claims Biden’s staffers placed him in a storage closet last week to keep him from chatting up guests during a high-priced fundraiser.
Scott Powers, a veteran political reporter for the Orlando Sentinel, was the lone newsman assigned to cover the $500-a-head bash for Sen. Bill Nelson at the home of developer and Democratic bigwig Alan Ginsburg on Wednesday.
The staffer told Powers he could come out when the veep arrived to give a speech.
“When I’d stick my head out, they’d say, ‘Not yet. We’ll let you know when you can come out,’” Powers told Drudge.
During the wait, while the 150 guests noshed on caprese crostini and chicken Caesar wraps, Powers waited patiently, sipping bottled water and killing time at a makeshift desk set up amid the clutter.
“Sounds like a nice party,” he emailed his editors, along with a picture of the temporary prison, the Orlando Sentinel wrote on Wednesday.
After about an hour and 15 minutes, Powers was let out to listen to Biden and Nelson speak.
If Bush were President, Katie Couric would be broadcasting live tonight from aforementioned closet.
It’s too bad our once valued media has sold itself to the Liberal Devils….. again, Part 4,796.
