The veep hadn't arrived yet but most of the 150 guests (minimum $500 donation) had. They were busy noshing on caprese crostini with oven-dried mozzarella and basil, rosemary flatbread with grapes honey and gorgonzola cheese and bacon deviled eggs, before a lunch of grilled chicken Caesar and garden vegetable wraps.

    Not so for Powers. A "low-level staffer" put Powers in a storage closet and then stood guard outside the door, 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.'"

    And no crustini for Powers, either. He made do with a bottle of water to sip as he sat at a tiny makeshift desk, right next to a bag marked "consignment." Powers was closeted at about 11:30 a.m., held for about an hour and 15 minutes, came out for 35 minutes of remarks by Biden and Sen. Bill Nelson, Florida Democrat, and then returned to his jail for the remainder of the event.
    I know this information alreayd.

    It does not make sense.

    this is from the OP's post [emphasis added by bubba]:
    ... Powers eventually left the closet to watch the vice president. He later sent out a lengthy report on his remarks to members of the media. The report itself did not mention the closet, saying only that "press coverage was limited to a single pool reporter, who was allowed to listen to the remarks but not given an opportunity to talk with anyone at the event." ...

    It only mentioned Biden's staff. Haven't they done something idiotic before, or am I thinking of someone else's staff. Maybe Pelosi's?

    I condemned using it a a political tool to further his agenda, I never said that it wasn't political.

    Oh, I agree. That's what he was told to do, so he did it. I don't think that's the same though as locking someone in a closet to where they couldn't get out of they wanted to.

    So a guard at the door is not being held like a lock?
