Yes, they're still talking about Jeff GannonGuckert out there... The Raw Story has this exclusive article from earlier this week:
Guckert made more than two dozen excursions to the White House when there were no scheduled briefings. On many of these days, the Press Office held press gaggles aboard Air Force One—which raises questions about what Guckert was doing at the White House. On other days, the president held photo opportunities.The Constant Vomit Blog (how charming) sees scandal, scandal, scandal....
On at least fourteen occasions, Secret Service records show either the entry or exit time missing. Generally, the existing entry or exit times correlate with press conferences; on most of these days, the records show that Guckert checked in but was never processed out.
In March, 2003, Guckert left the White House twice on days he had never checked in with the Secret Service. Over the next 22 months, Guckert failed to check out with the Service on fourteen days. On several of these visits, Guckert either entered or exited by a different entry/exit point than his usual one. On one of these days, no briefing was held; on another, he checked in twice but failed to check out.
“I’d be worried if I was the White House and I knew that a reporter with a day pass never left,” one White House reporter told RAW STORY. “I’d wonder, where is he hiding? It seems like a security risk.”
Others who have covered the White House say not checking in or out with the Secret Service is unusual, especially in the wake of Sept. 11. The Secret Service declined to comment.
Is it Aprils Fools Day Again?Course, Raw Story admits that there may have been briefings other than Presidential ones which Gannon may have attended... Raw Story promises that they'll get back to us.
One would think so after reading the new twists in the Gannon/Guckert, male prostitute softball throwing reporter with major whitehouse access in the post-911 world story.
Apparently Gannon/Guckert checked into the white house on a couple of occassions and never checked out. There were 14 times they he didn't check in with the secret service upon entering the white house, but did check out. Oh and on many of these days the white house was not holding a press conference. Hmmm when will Gannon/Guckert's [...] khaki pants be used as evidence?
I'm sure TCVBlog will keep his/her powder dry while the evidence rolls in...
