It looks as though Joan Whitlow has taken investigative reporting to a new level.
After Newarkers endured to her May 10 piece, casing the mayor’s new ride, the Ledger’s “embedded reporter” at City Hall is rumored to have been stalking the mayor like a jilted girlfriend.
To the car wash.
The Daily Newarker received a tip that Joanie was spotted by the mayor’s police detail, following his car to, yes, the local car wash.
The mind reels at the potential of tomorrow’s column, replete with details like whether the administration prefers premium to regular Turtle Wax. Or if the mayor hangs fuzzy dice in the mirror. Perhaps we’ll even be treated to angry statements from undertipped car wash attendants.
Whitlow is clearly working on her candidacy for the Pulitzer.
And here I was looking forward to some detailed analysis into the administration’s office paper suppliers.
