While it is rather easy to dismiss the claims of someone who also claims llamas are falling from the sky and of having met a goat god man, it has been discovered that there may some truth to the news of a dalliance between the Minister of Magic and a famous, or rather infamous Muggle. Before anyone begins to bandy about the name of the Muggle actress he escorted to the movie preview, that is not the dalliance that needs to be uncovered. Evidence exists that proves that the Minister was escorting the fine British actress as a professional gesture of courtesy and goodwill between the two worlds. Unlike the character she portrays in the film, Ms Staunton is a lady of fine breeding and good taste and there has been no improper behavior there.
However, it seems that evidence has surfaced indicating there has been a long term affair between the American Minister that has resulted in his wife hiring famed wizarding divorce lawyer, Geoff T. Dailey. When approached for comment today, Mr. Dailey would only say that he is preparing to file documents with the court and all would be forthcoming then. This could explain the Minister's recent move into a new penthouse apartment in the City from his enclave in Long Island. This reporter will continue to cover the story as it develops.
