WASHINGTON—According to event attendees, after numerous failed attempts to steer the subject away from his occupation, an American governor in town for a fundraiser Thursday at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts finally acknowledged he was the elected leader of one of the 50 states, but refused to say which. "It's out west," said the governor, who sources confirmed usually just mumbles something about working in public service when meeting new people. "You've probably never heard of it. Whatever, it's not important." After eventually admitting it was not Wyoming, the governor hastily excused himself and went back to his hotel room, where he reportedly became so flustered he completely forgot to grant clemency to that inmate scheduled for execution.
