Skip to comments.LA Times Sitting On Major Sex Scandal Involiving "Leading Presidential Candidate"
Posted on 10/31/2007 11:44:31 AM PDT by kregger1
So I was down in DC this past weekend and happened to run into a well-connected media person, who told me flatly, unequivocally that everyone knows The LA Times was sitting on a story, all wrapped up and ready to go about what is a potentially devastating sexual scandal involving a leading Presidential candidate. Everyone knows meaning everyone in the DC mainstream media political reporting world. Sitting on it because the paper couldnt decide the complex ethics of whether and when to run it. The way I heard it theyd had it for a while but dont know what to do. The person who told me )not an LAT person) knows I write and didnt say dont write about this.

And it hasn’t leaked to Drudge yet ?
So who’s taking odds?
(under a different title)
It must be a Democrat or they would have run it already...
Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)

Hillary and Huma sittin’ in a tree.
I don’t understand the ethical dilema-if it’s about a Republican, they’ll run it. If it’s a Democrat, they’ll spike it. If it’s about Hillary, they’ll discredit and destroy the source.
It must be the rumors about John Edwards and the woman who worked on his campaign! IF it were a Republican, it would be splattered in every media source in America!
Well, we know it sure ain’t Hillarybeast.
Or, it’s a Republican and they’re waiting till election eve.
If it is a Republican, they will wait the night before the election to run it as they did with the Bush/drunk driving story so that there will be no time to answer it. That is how the MSM works.
He was told it was not the Edwards rumor.
Right, can’t be a Republican or Hillary. Can’t be Obama so that narrows the field of suspects. Hillary’s media is so transparent.
Dennis Kucinich... Hanging out with Shirley MacLaine and checking out UFO’s??? Was that really all they were doing at her place???
A scandal like this could probably derail his campaign. The horror, the horror.
Mayors of LA and SF have paved the way, injecting antibodies into the body politic to lessen the impact.
It’s Pat Paulsen.
Probably waiting for Hillary to give the green light to it..
Or it's a pubbie and they want to wait for maximum damage... Ugly MSM bias makes it easy to understand them.
SNIFF...Sniff.....Ahhhhhhh, Sex Scandal!.......Must be campaign season!................
Off the cuff guess. John Edwards
No. If it were a dem, it would be out by now so the dems don't nominate someone who will take a hit after the nomination or so that the information is "old hat" long before the election. That they are sitting on it means it's an R. They are hoping he gets the nomination and then the story "leaks out" anyway close to the election. All the time, the Old Media company protests it was worried about the ethics so it sat on the story.
It's the way they handled the Foley scandal, when the target was an R. It sat and sat and, amazingly, just before the election, a leftist operative gets the info and springs it.
OTOH, releasing the info early is how they handled the info when the target was a D. Remember Jennifer Flowers? By the election it was "old news."
Well, the headline says “leading”, so we know it’s not Kucinich or Ron Paul.
Dennis Kucinich being probed by a space alien?
I figure it’s Dennis Kucinich. I believe his species has eleven sexes.
The fact that this is mentioned now, it’s probably about Edwards or Obama. Unless one of the GOPers is playing with some guys privates, it wouldn’t have been mentioned.
Ethics are a very complex thing for dirve-by media.
It has to be about a Republican.
The LA Times would never have let this leak out about a Dem.
They would have buried it and anyone who dared speak of it.
Timing is everything ...
Democrats can have sex scandals?
They stop at nothing, even GLAAD debates, if it isn’t Edwards then they are blowing smoke, as Ms. Edwrad’s health condition may be what they are taking into consideration.
Still waiting for the McConnel one...
If it is Hillary, she is trying to keep the lid on this scandal.
If it is Rudy they are waiting until he receives the nomination from the Republicans, then they will release the info to guarantee that Hillary sweeps into the White House. If it leaks out now, they know that someone else will be able to take on Hillary. But if Rudy’s campaign derails for other reasons, then we nay never hear about this bombshell.
Or Bill Richardson claiming he slept with the Kansas City A’s in 1966?
If that many people know about it, it’ll get out.
“The only people I trust are thee and me, and sometimes I’m no so sure about thee.”
That likely depends on the candidate. If someone like Thompson, Hunter, Tancredo, or Huckabee, why wait? Hit them now and let their ship sink. If it's Giuliani or Romney, then perhaps wait. I say this because they seem to be more 'anointed' by the MSM so waiting until election eve would be more dramatic.
That’s my opinion, too. They will wait to see if he becomes the pubbie nominee, if he does they’ll use it then to help the dem.
John Edwards is my guess.
The NY Post did a blind item about it over the summer.
That rumor about Edwards has been floating around a few weeks. Must be someone else, and same gender sex, else the LALA Times wouldn’t be so fidgety about it.........
Could he Edwards. His wife was fat as a house for years, now she has cancer. He has shown he has no morals, after bankrupting every OBGYN in the Carolinas with phony science.
Michelle Obama is dogmeat who refuses to wear makeup, so could be him too. Can't be Kucinich, his wife is a babe who looks like she works part time as a dominatrix.
Rhythmically, for three to five minutes.
It can’t be Hillary. Now that Web and Vince are dead, who whould have sex with her?
He should talk with Joe Scarborough about getting rid of such inconvenient problems.
