The Saga surrounding Ed FitzGerald’s late night escapades are getting murkier and murkier. In a surprise twist, Henry J. Gomez from the Northeast Ohio Media Group reported today that the lone witness to the incident has come forward and released a statement through his attorney.
This witness, Casey Hager, “saw the car’s occupants climb into the backseat.” According to the NEOMG, Hager issued his statement through his attorney.
Hager released more details, including seeing the couple climb from the front of the SUV to the back seat, and even mentioned back and forth motion.
Hager reported seeing a “man emerge from the backseat, along with a woman, wearing a sportcoat.”
It’s rather chivalrous to lend your dinner jacket to a woman who may be cold. But in a car, it’s much easier to just turn on the heat. Unless of course that particular woman needs to quickly regain her modesty, due to a surprise visit from two police officers.
It’s becoming more clear why Ed’s campaign has been so secretive. If the keycards had come out, they may have lead to Ed’s driver’s license issue becoming public as well. And if that became public, it would lead directly to a dark parking lot, in October of 2012.
This incredible turn of events casts an immediate shadow of doubt over FitzGerald’s repeated denial that any hanky-panky occurred. If it were 17 year-old Ed FitzGerald in that car, getting caught by his parents with a girl, they’d never believe he wasn’t getting frisky. But Ed expects the voters of Ohio to believe him when he says nothing inappropriate happened? Sheesh…
After weeks of speculation, it looks like we know what Ed was hiding.
