ONE and he belonged to Biden’s security team The Reporter Should Have Screamed
An incident at a Florida Democratic political fundraiser this week should be front page news in every paper in the country, and the lead story on TV newscasts, but it has been virtually buriedâ€¦. until now
Here are the details.
On Wednesday morning, Vice President Joe Biden attended a fundraiser for Democratic Senator Bill Nelson. The event was at the home of billionaire real estate developer Alan Ginsberg, a long-time Dem supporter. Ginsbergâ€™s enormous lakefront home is in an exclusive section of Winter Park, an uber-upscale Orlando suburb. To give you an idea of the size and opulence of the home, it was originally built for Orlando Magic and NBA superstar Horace Grant.
The Orlando Sentinel assigned longtime reporter Scott Powers to cover the event. But when he arrived, Biden staffers decided they didnâ€™t want him mingling with the 150 guests who had forked over $500 to meet Biden, so they locked him in a closet! A member of the Biden advance team even stood guard outside the door to prevent Powers from escaping.
I cannot even begin to say how this little incident would have played from CBSNBCABCMSDNCCNN if this had been Vice President Cheney but then he is a Republican and well the media is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Democrat Party. The Orlando Sentinel of course did do a tiny write-up about this to show that they are not “hiding” any information from the public, though it appears to be only online How Would They Have Written This If It Was Cheney?
