LA Times Sitting On Major Sex Scandal Involiving "Leading Presidential Candidate"
http://pajamasmedia.com/xpress/ronrosenbaum/2007/10/29/shocking_inside_dc_scandal_rum.php ^ | 10/29/2007 | Ron Rosenbaum

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 couldn’t decide the complex ethics of whether and when to run it. The way I heard it they’d had it for a while but don’t know what to do. The person who told me )not an LAT person) knows I write and didn’t say “don’t write about this”.

“Well, the headline says “leading”, so we know it’s not Kucinich or Ron Paul.”

I doubt even the LAT considers Dennis ‘the troll’ Kucinich a “candidate”.

I’m not sure there is such a thing as a “major” sex scandal anymore. Perhaps not even a sex scandal, period.

I agree with you. The MSM has done this in the past before elections. IMHO, if this was a Democrat and a presidential candidate as the story implies, it won’t be printed.

re: Or it could be a Republican and they are waiting to see if he gets the nomination and then nail him.)))

Yup. And who spends a lot of time in California?

That’s the read I’m getting. There would be no ethics consideration if it was a Republican.

"I think it’s a Republican, or they wouldn’t have mentioned it at all"

I totally agree! One thing for sure it ain't the BEAST666! If it were than THIS so called rumor would have been snuffed out by now. There is no way a communist liberal reporter were oust the SHE-DEVIL...there would be HELL to pay!

“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.

Hillary and Huma sittin’ in a tree.

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 KING–ing 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?”

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...

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.

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.

We already know that Rudy wasn't faithful to wife #1 (with wife #2) or to wife #2 (with wife #3). Fred Thompson "dated" dozens of trophies and they have all endorsed him. In fact, there are so many of them, they have formed his largest PAC. Bet it isn't Mitt or they would have put it in 2" letters in color on the front page. McCain left his wife who had been injured in a car accident, but that's not new info.

Must be a Democrat.

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.

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.

Whoever it is, I am betting that most of the insiders in DC are aware of it, and no one is spilling the beans.

Kind of like the Plame story.

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?

Since they’re sitting on it, it means they’re conflicted. And since they’re conflicted, it must be Rudy. Because Rudy’s conflicted as well. I mean, he thinks he’s a Republican.

Well, the headline says “leading”, so we know it’s not Kucinich or Ron Paul.

I'm with you on that one. And if we go the next step the "leaders" are Rudy and Hildabeast at the moment.

Which means.......Rudy.

Another Republican in the bathroom story?

No. Not only wouldn't that be newsworthy, but there would be no reason to even mention it. There is no sane person in the USA that believes that Willy has somehow become faithful to Shrillery.

I think it makes sense that it’s Hillary - inside DC and no one is openly talking - can you say 900 FBI files. Someone hates her enough to get this out the back door and ruin her chances! Who will go public? This is definitely a RED SIREN for Drudge - unless he’s been had by the beast himself?
