Buzzfeed News is reporting it has obtained documents related to an incident where the lead singer of the band Brass Against allegedly urinated on a Florida man on stage at a recent concert.
Reports indicate the documents, referred to by some as the Brass Dossier, have been widely circulated around Washington D.C. and among journalists. Buzzfeed plans to publish the dossier as soon as it conducts a thorough investigation of claims made in the document.
“No doubt Buzzfeed journalists will go through the dossier with a fine-tooth comb,” said former Buzzfeed Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith, now at the New York Times. “When I was at the helm, our policy was to double and triple check our anonymous source regarding the veracity of any allegations. This usually involved verifying the source didn’t have his fingers crossed when he gave us the information. As a final act of due diligence, we would make the source cross his heart and hope to die. At that point we generally felt pretty confident about releasing information to the public.”
Much speculation has gone into the identity of the Florida man. Witnesses claim the individual was over six feet tall, with skin of a Sunkist orange hue, and a breathtaking coiffure that flowed like golden rain water.
Witnesses say, at the conclusion of the show, the man was hustled away by a stern looking group of men in suits and sunglasses.
Additional reporting by MSNBC reveals the lead singer of Brass Against, Sophia Urista, may have connections to Russian intelligence. “Sources indicate this may not be the first time this Urista has served up some urine at the behest of the Kremlin,” MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow reported.
