Struck Down: Feds Refuse to Explain How Agent Injured Daily Caller Writer.
The writer in question blogs as "Jim Treacher" and is referred to by his real name (Sean Medlock) in the story.
Ah yes, the
From an email by Sarah Rosetti of the Department of State answering questions from the Daily Caller:
At approximately 7:10 PM last night, a jogger collided with one of the U.S. Department of State, Diplomatic Security Service’s official vehicles.
The jogger was transported by ambulance to Georgetown University Hospital.
Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) responded to the scene and conducted an investigation. Diplomatic Security has since learned that the jogger was cited for Jaywalking. For further details regarding the investigation, we would refer you to MPD.
I'm betting someone told Sarah he was a "blogger". Having no idea what a "blogger" might be, she substituted "jogger". After all it was an accident with a pedestrian and a vehicle, therefore, the pedestrian must have been a "jogger". There is no such thing as a "blogger"... right?
Stay tuned for more fun details (well not so fun for Jim Treacher - he has to heal up first). But so far this has reached farcical levels in the first 12 hours. I can't wait to see what DSS does next. Since they managed to involve the press instead of a regular Joe Sixpack, it should be entertaining to see what other coverups Daily Caller gets in response to their RFC's. (that's Request For Comment for you non-techies out there). The possibilities are endless.

On a more serious note; "Curiously, the ticket says that Medlock was struck at an intersection four blocks from where the accident actually took place. And it claims that Medlock was walking diagonally across the intersection at the time.."
If I was of a suspicious nature, I'd be thinking there was some major butt covering going on here. If I was of a suspicious nature...

Seriously though - it sucks to be hit by a car and injured. Then to have the person who did it try to change the entire story to get out of taking responsibility, that's too much.
I hope Jim gets well quickly. I really do want to see what else this government entity will try to pull though - good grief!
