Larry Mendte in Libya for exclusive Gaddafi interview

    You didn’t think you’d get through this week without hearing about Larry Mendte, did you? Relax, we’re not here to talk about his court battle with former CBS3 co-anchor Alycia Lane.

    Mendte has landed an exclusive interview with Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

    A contributor to New York’s WPIX news, Mendte’s headed there today thanks to his contacts with former Pa. Rep. Curt Weldon, a buddy of Gaddafi who will travel with Mendte.

    Hopefully no reports of unrequited love and email hacking come out of the trip.
