That's awful that that happened, but who in their right mind walks around any East Coast city at 1:20 am? I'm in Philly and won't go out past 8!

Doesn't he work for Obama? If so, then I am glad this happened. If not, then I am sad.

Good work TMZ. You forgot to mention that he currently works for the Obama administration and doesn't act anymore.

jealous of kate    

and he didn't tell them 'wait, I work for the 'anointed one' and they immediately dropped to their knees and kissed his hands and gave him everything back included everything they had? AMAZING. I had read that Obama had a high rating in the inner circle of D.C. Guess No Respect for his henchmen... Ah, Kal, not what you thought Washington was going to be like, is it? Washington is different in the daylight than it is at nightime. The difference, the people robbing you in the daytime are wearing $1000 suits. The nightime people are not.

Kal Penn left his job on the TV Show "House" and has been working for President Obama. 1:30AM? Long hours at the white house I guess.
