Charles would prefer his dinner companion not be totally exposed for what he is.
What he is suggesting is take a mature, serious approach to these serious allegations and don't hype them. They don't need to be hyped to be made out to be serious. They are serious. Don't over play your hand.
The media is not going to back off this story. The GOP can always jump in if they do. But the story made the front page, top of the fold in our daily newspaper. It also was the lead story on the three local news stations.
Don't bury the traction this story is getting by going over the top. Stay measured and press methodically. There is a "there" there. Let the facts speak. They are far more effective.
