The Secret Service is hot on the case of the potential threat to presidential candidate Barack Obama. Earlier today Washington Post writer Dana Milbank told Politico’s Michael Calderone that no one from the agency had gotten in touch with him about his account of a crazed McCain supporter shouting “Kill him” at a Palin campaign event. But agency spokesman Malcolm Wiley told Radar, “I physically talked to him today, but I want to reiterate that we first attempted to reach out to him yesterday.”
After Milbank told Calderone that he hadn’t heard from the Secret Service, Calderone noted that he’d passed Milbank’s cellphone number on to Wiley. Guess he used it!
