Expect Pictures of John Edwards Running Away
Later this evening
Expect pictures later this evening from the National Enquirer's SEN. JOHN EDWARDS CAUGHT WITH MISTRESS AND LOVE CHILD! story.
According to the Enquirer, their reporters and photographer "cornered" Edwards in the Beverly Hilton early this morning after his meeting in Room 246.
The comical scene of Edwards running from the Nat'l. Enquirer's photographer and two reporters is captured in hilarious detail by the Enquirer:
Edwards went out of the hotel briefly with Rielle, they were observed by the NATIONAL ENQUIRER and then went back to her room, where he stayed until attempting to sneak out of the hotel unseen at 2:40 a.m. (PST). But when he emerged alone from an elevator into the hotel basement he was greeted by several reporters from the NATIONAL ENQUIRER.
Senior NATIONAL ENQUIRER Reporter Alexander Hitchen asked Edwards why he was visiting Rielle and whether he was ready to confirm that he was the father of her baby.
Shocked to see a reporter, and without saying anything, Edwards ran up the stairs leading from the hotel basement to the lobby. But, spotting a photographer, he doubled back into the basement. As he emerged from the stairwell, reporter Butterfield questioned him about his hookup with Rielle.
Edwards did not answer and then ran into a nearby restroom. He stayed inside for about 15 minutes, refusing to answer questions from the NATIONAL ENQUIRER about what he was doing in the hotel. A group of hotel security men eventually escorted him from the men's room, while preventing the NATIONAL ENQUIRER reporters from following him out of the hotel.
Now Drudge Report has the story up [NATIONAL ENQUIRER CORNERS JOHN EDWARDS AT BEVERLY HILTON... @ Drudge Report]. Perhaps, a Mainstream Media reporter will ask John Edwards "What gives?" next time one gets an appointment with the former Senator from NC.
All this comes at an most inopportune time for Edwards: Time Magazine just reported that Edwards was on Barack Obama's short list of vice-presidential candidates.
[Edwards, Nunn on Obama's Veep List].
One wonders how long it will be until the Time story is updated.
