CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Heather Podesta threw a brunch meeting Monday morning complete with a full fare of Southern cuisine.
Tabasco biscuits, deviled eggs, and a cocktail made with moonshine were passed around to a crowd of about 50. Podesta said the fare was to allow guests to sample some local Charlotte flavor.
But Podesta would not directly answer questions concerning a controversial statement she made in a recent Reuters article.
Podesta was quoted in the article as saying Charlotte's cultural prospects are "grim", after scouting 30 locations for a party.
Reporter Kristen Hampton asked Podesta to comment on the statement, she first replied, "What Reuters article?"
