No kidding folks, the story is available online, and you can check it out. Karl has boxes, ladders, and even a snow shovel in his garage, there wasn't a car there though. However, having been in my Dad's garage, I'm not sure they looked hard enough for the car. Dad's had one in his for 3 years, and if the door is open you can miss it, even though it's an 1980's Olds station wagon.
I'm not sure what the reporters thought they would see in there, but evidently the fact that someone in DC has moving boxes and shovels in their garage is newsworthy.
I wouldn't be surprised if Darlene Superville got a pulitzer or something for this huge coup in investigative journalism.
