This spokesperson had a pretty bad day last week when a reporter cornered her boss, St. Louis Comptroller Darlene Green, to ask about the $26,000 the city was spending to provide her with a take-home car.

“No, no, no,” Melanie Streeper said over and over to KTVI2 reporter Elliott Davis as he attempted to get some answers about the car. Streeper physically inserted herself between Davis and Green to try and keep the reporter from her boss, but it wasn’t particularly helpful.


Streeper had declined Davis a comment numerous times, so he marched down to city hall to try and get answers directly from Green.

Davis explained in his news story, “When Streeper saw that I had caught up with Green anyway she sprung into action. To her credit Green tried to answer questions but even she had trouble talking over her own spokesperson.”
