    Was he the only one there, or was he the only one allowed there?

    Maybe the pool figured that wasting one guy's time was enough.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Not necessarily. One can apologize being it is embarrassing situation and you want to save face, but not because you did anything wrong.

    Powers told Drudge that Ginsburg called him on Friday to apologize.

    "He said he had no idea they'd put me in a closet and was very sorry," Powers said. "He said he was just following their lead and was extremely embarrassed by the whole thing."
    So, he apologized for the embarrassment of not doing something wrong????

    I've waited that long in one of those little examination rooms at the doctors office.
    Didn't you look at the picture? There was a chair and table and a bottled water. He had a cell phone to keep him busy while he waited. He wasn't standing in a dark closet among a bunch of coats.

    Scott Powers, a veteran political reporter for the Orlando Sentinel, was the lone newsman assigned to cover the $500-a-head bash for Sen. Bill Nelson at the home of developer and Democratic bigwig Alan Ginsburg on Wednesday.

    I'm trying to figure out why you're so dead set on disbelieving him. Could it be due to who's being scrutinized here?

    Vice President Joe Biden's staff lock journalist in closet to stop him talking to guests | Mail Online

    When Ginsburg – who has supported both Democrat and Republican candidates in the past – learnt of the treatment that took place in his house, he called the reporter.

    Powers said: ‘[Ginsburg] said he had no idea they'd put me in a closet and was very sorry.

    ‘He said he was just following their lead and was extremely embarrassed by the whole thing.’

    But some guests were shocked by the Vice President’s staff.

    One emailed the paper saying: ‘I was in attendance at the Fundraiser and enjoyed a nice lunch.

    ‘If I had known there was a reporter stuffed in the closet, I would have been compelled to stand up and demand answers.

    ‘I would also like to know if this is actually legal to treat people like caged animals. I’m disgusted by these actions.’
    But the Vice President’s staff emailed him an apology which he said ‘I found far less satisfying than Ginsburg’s.’
    A lot of apologies, for something that didn't happen, huh

    My point was broader. You can apologize for something embarrassing, but not doing anything wrong. What the staffer did was wrong, but people in this thread are making it appear to be more than it is by bringing up Obama. I still want to know why he was left in there for so long. I have been to fundraisers like this and people just don't sit there for an hour and fifteen minutes with only asking once if he can be let out.
