John Boy Phone Home: Criminal Complaint Filed in John Edwards Rendezvous Case
Update: Hannity & Colmes weighs in on this controversy, with an appearance by Town Hall blogger. Fox News earlier had confirmed the Enquirer's story of the encounter with the hotel security guard.

Well, I was wrong. It's definitely getting weirder. Not only is the Edwards' tryst tale being officially tanked by MSM, the LA Times has censored its bloggers and staffers. Yep.
"LAT Gags Blogs: In a move that has apparently stirred up some internal discontent, the Los Angeles Times has banned its bloggers, including political bloggers, from mentioning the Edwards/Rielle Hunter story. Even bloggers who want to mention the story in order to make a skeptical we-don't-trust-the-Enquirer point are forbidden from doing so." --Kausfiles (always a fun read).
Now let's really stir the pot. It's beginning to be noticed that when a Republican is accused of anything that might possibly be salacious or unethical, the MSM is all over the story, even without proof. Just a whisper is enough.
But the Edwards mess? Nice people don't talk about things like that, dearie, seems to be the rule. Or, is it: nice people don't talk about things like that if the key player is a prominent Democrat?
We don't know. But if you do know, we'll be in the restroom, second stall from the end. Just tap your toes two times. No, no one will think anything about it. (Remember to bring your Democratic party membership card just in case, though.)

Just when you thought it couldn't get any weirder with the story of Barack Obama Vice-Presidential prospect John Edwards, the National Enquirer steps it up a notch. Now the tabloid is after the hotel security guard that tried to deflect them from Edwards in a California hotel--and Edwards might wind up as a witness.
My prior coverage of this tawdry mess is here.
John Edwards' secret meeting with his mistress at the Beverly Hilton hotel has now become part of a criminal complaint.
NATIONAL ENQUIRER reporters Alan Butterfield and Alexander Hitchen filed a criminal complaint with the Beverly Hills Police Department on Thursday, July 24, charging that hotel security acted unlawfully while the reporters were trying to question the former senator.
Edwards now could be contacted by police to give an eyewitness account of what occurred.
