Hey, isn’t that… “Meet the Press” host David Gregory, illegally parking his dark-colored SUV on Connecticut Avenue, Thursday afternoon?
Our tipster spotted the NBC newsman — on an important mission that apparently couldn’t be slowed down by fear of the city’s lightning-fast meter-checkers — hopping out of the car and hustling to the Tiny Jewel Box, the upscale bauble shop. An NBC spokeswoman confirms that Gregory did park illegally, but says he did so only briefly to check whether the shop was open.
Then he moved his car to a garage, she says, and went in on a Mother’s Day shopping mission (there goes the surprise element!). We knew it must have been urgent business.
