Hutcherson still doesn't show videotape

Eli Sanders of The Stranger follows up on the whole Ken Hutcherson-special envoy thing, trying to determine why Hutcherson hasn't produced the videotape he promised proving that the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives did indeed appoint him as a "special envoy."
Because Hutcherson himself set up the viewing of this alleged video as the proof that his version of events is true, I’ve been trying for weeks to get a look at the tape. I’m not the only one.

Hutcherson has been a hard man to get in touch with. However, I finally managed to reach him on his cell phone yesterday.

When we spoke, Hutcherson reversed course and said he had the video, but would not be showing it to me.

“Oh yeah, I have it,” he told me. But, he added: “My relationship with the White House is much more important than my relationship with you.”

Hutcherson said he believes that if he produces the video, it will be used to embarrass the White House.

“I’m not going to give you information so you can go and attack the White House,” he told me. “Either way you win.”
Well, at least that proves that Hutcherson is not completely nuts, as he appears to have grasped the basic fundamentals of his situation.

A bad day for bigots all around.
