Edwards Runs From Reporters 2nd Time in 10 Days

John Edwards on the Run

John Edwards must be in good shape: he’s had his practice dodging reporters lately.

Last week, Edwards–mentioned as a possible VP candidate for Barack Obama–ran from reporters from the National Enquirer when they attempted to question him about a possible affair as he was leaving the Beverly Hilton.

Yesterday, Edwards hurried away from about a dozen reporters attempting to ask him questions in Washington, DC after speaking at a symposium.

Using a side area, usually reserved for the kitchen staff, John Edwards, fled from reporters, “at least some of whom wanted to question him about recent reports in the National Enquirer that alleged an inappropriate relationship with a former campaign videographer.”

The Raleigh News & Observer account below (via PJ Gladnick at Newbusters):

About a dozen reporters and photojournalists attended a speech Edwards gave to an AARP Foundation symposium on poverty and aging in Washington. Afterward, he avoided most of the waiting reporters, at least some of whom wanted to question him about recent reports in the National Enquirer that alleged an inappropriate relationship with a former campaign videographer.


On Wednesday, Edwards apparently ducked out a side area used by the kitchen staff in the fourth-floor ballroom of Washington’s historic Hotel Monaco. Edwards emerged from a lower-level handicap ramp near the rear of the hotel with two men. When approached by a Charlotte Observer reporter, Edwards said, “Can’t do it now, I’m sorry” and quickly walked past.
