Ashley Powers, Nevada bureau chief for the Los Angeles Times, is used to covering the news, not making it. Yesterday however, she garnered personal headlines after being mistakenly expelled from Republican caucus location Precinct 1721 in the Vegas suburb of Sun City Anthem. Before she was shown the door, one elderly attendee screamed out that she was a spy.
David Montero, a reporter for the Salt Lake Tribune, commiserated that the same sort of thing had happened to him in 2008. Other journalist reactions re-tweeted by Powers were more lighthearted:
