What Luck! HuffPost Reporter Christine Wilkie Spotted on ABC7 With George Clooney

Unfortunately for actor George Clooney, he was arrested today while protesting in front of the Sudan embassy in Washington. But the good news is the ABC 7 cameras captured a very enthusiastic Christina Wilkie as she walked with Clooney before the arrest.

The HuffPost reporter described the scene to FBDC in an email:

It was a zoo, with about 50 reporters all angling (and elbowing) for the same shot. We spoke to Clooney on the way over to the protest, though, so we already had a good interview in pocket when we got there.

HuffPost videographer Sara Kenigsberg was in the middle of the action, while I sneaked onto the wall of the embassy of Mali so I could catch the dialogue between Clooney and the cops, which was friendly but nothing newsworthy.

Wilkie told us that she didn’t see her cameo on ABC 7 today.
