On Dateline's "To Catch a Predator," a sad and predictable little affair where Hansen sets up men who want to have sex with underage females and then practically jumps up and down and rubs his hands in glee when they fall into his trap, is now on the receiving end of the journalism nail-gun.

Well, it was actually The National Enquirer that evidently pulled a little Gary Hart/Donna Rice sting, starting at the Manalapan Ritz-Carlton restaurant. Last Friday, he was filmed having a mushy little nosh session with WPTV/Channel 5 reporter Kristyn Caddell. Seems a few months back they met at the Blue Martini in Palm Beach and got a little, well, smitten.

After dinner, the cameras kept rolling, following the two back to Caddell's place, where they stayed until 8 a.m. Various sources have insisted the two have been banging for months, which isn't illegal, http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20507102,00.html, but sure turns the linen-covered, candle-lit dining table on Hansen a bit.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
