Kirsten Gillibrand Has Super Low Standards for What Constitutes an Interesting Story

When Kirsten Gillibrand appeared on crutches yesterday, she told reporters that she had "a real hell of a story, but I'm not going to tell it to you." But her spokesman now tells Roll Call that Gillibrand merely "hurt her calf while exercising," which is literally the least interesting story we've ever heard. So we're just going to assume it was actually something with werewolves.
