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.

“It must be the rumors about John Edwards and the woman who worked on his campaign!”
In that case they’ll wait to see if he’s any real threat to Hillary.
Yup. It's been buzzed about since last Spring, including this item in the Village Voice (not the best source, I know!):
As I recently said on MONICA CROWLEY's radio show, whisper campaigns are claiming that HILLARY CLINTON is GAYLE KINGing her aide de camp, the glamorous HUMA ABEDIN, an Indian/Pakistani goddess from Kalamazoo, Michigan. In other words, Hillary may be putting Huma out there in the press and purposely making her more visible as a pre-emptive strike that amounts to her hiding in plain sight. This way, no Republican can later say, "Who is this gorgeous babe who spends so much intimate time with Hillary that the Observer called her Hill's 'body person'? Was GENNIFER FLOWERS's book right about Hillary's sexual taste?"
This was discussed a lot on last night's thread. The lady in question is quite beautiful:
I live in MA. As I was out for lunch today, I saw a lone, fat woman walking down the street with a Kucinich 2008 sign. She was pathetic! I almost pulled up next to her and asked, “Has he seen any new UFOs recently?”
It’s Hillary and her assistant...
That’s what i’m thinkin too..They are waiting to do a ‘Rather’. Sit on it and release it tight before or after they ghet nominated, to do as much smear damage as possible, and leave as little time as possible before a vote for the candidate to refute, or otherwise recover from the attack,
to damage their electability/reputation/credibility.
Ahhh yes....the vaunted Integrity of the present day MSM...
Maybe they got pictures of Hillary sleeping with Bill??
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.
I disagree. It could still be a Hillary scandal and they are providing themselves cover by pretending to care about the consequences and hence are delaying. That way if it leaks by some other means they can retain "credibility" by saying they were ready to release it themselves. If it doesn't leak then they're covered as well.
I'm going with Hillary the Turf Tiger story.
Must be the Edwards rumor(??)
BTW, how do you know that about Rudy?
Must be a Democrat.
My guess is that it is Billy and another woman again. (It did say involving, not necessarily directly)
There is nothing on this at “the Wonkette”, so you might be right.
Lesbian rumors have been swirling for weeks around Huma Abedin, one of Hillary Clinton’s closest campaign confidants. First, Village Voice columnist Michael Musto said he had some evidence of a gal-on-gal affair to remember; then a Department of Justice source contacted Big Head DC, adding some zip to the sauce.
My bet is Obama. If it is, they may be sitting on it because of the potential racism allegations.
OK so we’re supposed to believe that “only” the LA Times is smart enough to dig up a story on a sex scandal and “everyone” knows about it? Fox, the Wall Street Journal, Washington Times, New York Post are all too stupid to sumble across it? Expecially now that “everybody” knows the Times is sitting on it? Sorry, sounds a bit fishy to me.
It cant be Hillary. Now that Web and Vince are dead, who whould have sex with her?
Kind of like the Plame story.
Paging Bob Novak
“Must be the Edwards rumor(??)”
Was Edwards’ filmmaker lady from Los Angeles?
Did Thompson shoot his show in Los Angeles?
Seems would be some Los Angeles connection if the story appears in the Los Angeles Times?
Rumours - Edwards and a woman - latest in a series, OR Hillary and a woman, latest in a series as well.
