Florida reporter confined to closet while Joe Biden speaks

An aide to Vice President Joe Biden has apologised to a reporter who was locked in a closet for hours after he was invited to cover a Florida political fundraiser because they did not want him talking with the guests. Spokeswoman Elizabeth Alexander said the decision to hold local reporter Scott Powers (pictured) there was a 'mistake'. And she claimed an inexperienced staffer had put Powers in the closet instead of a 'hotel room' as was their normal practice. The Orlando Sentinel reporter was ushered into the closet inside wealthy property developer Alan Ginsburg’s Winter Park mansion, after being told that Joe Biden and Senator Bill Nelson had not yet arrived.
