Keeping It In The Closet.

It's not a story about secretive homosexuals or your crazy aunt Hilda and her unceasing enemas. It concerns how a journalist at a Democrat fund raiser for Joe Biden was treated.

The White House website proudly says ‘President Obama is committed to creating the most open and accessible administration in American history.’ But try telling Vice President Joe Biden’s staff that, after they held a local reporter in a closet for hours after he was invited to cover a Florida political fundraiser because they did not want him talking with the guests.

As the unaware $500-a-head invitees dined on caprese crostini with oven-dried mozzarella and basil, rosemary flatbread with grapes honey and gorgonzola cheese, grilled chicken Caesar and garden vegetable wraps, veteran reporter Scott Powers was locked away.

Apparently Vice President Joe "I've Got A Pony This Big!" Biden wanted to keep it real. No mere hacks were gonna get their hands on his mozzarella and gorgonzola by God!

The Orlando Sentinel reporter was ushered into the closet inside wealthy property developer Alan Ginsburg’s Winter Falls mansion, after being told that Joe Biden and Senator Bill Nelson had not yet arrived.

They were due to speak to the audience to raise money for the 2012 elections. He was told he could only come out when the politicians were ready to give their speeches.

Powers told The Drudge Report: ‘When I'd stick my head out, they'd say, “Not yet. We'll let you know when you can come out.”’

Veteran reporter Scott Powers was locked in the closet for most of the event. He emailed from inside 'sounds like a nice party.'

After 90 minutes he was allowed out to hear Biden and Nelson speak for 35 minutes, before being taken back to the closet for the remainder of the event.

Nicely played Joe.

If they had locked the door, it would have been kidnapping.

When Seutonious was describing the depravity and corruption of his Twelve Ceasars he sometimes had no sex or money scandals to report and instead fell upon the lavishness of their banquets. He would surely have a field day with todays Amrican political food orgies.

Once again, can you imagine if Cheney had done this ?

It's not what the media spews, it is what they don't talk about. The Thousands of things they don't talk about.

You know, considering some of the reporters out there, I can’t decide whether to be outraged or applaud Biden’s advance people. I can imagine that some reporters get pretty obnoxious when left to their own devices, and should not be allowed to roam in polite company. However, being held against his will and basically GUARDED? Kind of beyond the pale… I wonder if the reporter would be as outraged if he had been “held” in a lavish study at the developer’s house, complete with beverage service and snacks, big screen TV, etc. So maybe he’s just complaining about the accommodations.
