Ron Rosenbaum writes at PJM:
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 â€œeveryone knowsâ€ 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. â€œEveryone knowsâ€ meaning everyone in the DC mainstream media political reporting world. â€œSitting on itâ€ because the paper couldnâ€™t decide the complex ethics of whether and when to run it. The way I heard it theyâ€™d had it for a while but donâ€™t know what to do. The person who told me )not an LAT person) knows I write and didnâ€™t say â€œdonâ€™t write about thisâ€.
Mickey Kaus follows:
Rosenbaum’s Political Physics: Do you ever sense there is some large mass of dark matter, an unseen Scandal Star, the gravitational pull of which is warping the coverage of what seems, on the surface, a pretty dull presidential race? I do. So does Ron Rosenbaum. I thought the Dark Star was the Edwards affair allegation. But Rosenbaum says “everyone in the elite Mainstream media” knows about another juicy scandal that the LAT is supposedly sitting on. I guess this is proof that I’m not in the elite, because I don’t know what he’s talking about. … My vestigial Limbaugh gland tells me it must involve a Democrat, or else the Times would have found a reason to print it. … P.S.: If it’s just Richardson, that will be very disappointing.

Iâ€™m not sure Hillary could walk out the door without Huma.â€â€”Mandy Grunwald, Clinton advisor.
â€œHuma does make the trains run on time.â€â€”Bob Barnett, the Clintonâ€™s longtime personal lawyer.
â€œI donâ€™t know if itâ€™s a chicken-or-the-egg thingâ€”Hillary affecting Huma or the other way aroundâ€”but together they work.â€â€”Mary Steenburgen, longtime Hillary friend and actress.
Can’t one just imagine all the things that could come out in a Giuliani vs. Hillary election campaign?
