A Labor Department lawyer, charged with sexually assaulting his co-worker in her Northwest Washington home, was found dead Tuesday in his D.C. jail cell, officials said.
Paul Mannina, 58, was found with his throat cut, two police officials familiar with the investigation said. He shared the cell with another inmate, but it remained unknown whether the wound was self-inflicted. Authorities did not explain why Mannina was sharing a cell or whether he was in protective custody at the time of his death.

nothing weird about this.
The upside of this is that the charges will be dismissed and his wife can keep his pension. Might also be able to sue the jail for negligence.
Lol! When I read your tagline I thought of a bunch of FReepers in a cozy shelter for poultry.
" but it remained unknown whether the wound was self-inflicted. "
regarding a throat slashing ?
Was he a Clinton appointee?
“...throat was cut”
I know that Muslims have infiltrated the White House and most government agencies, but they’re in the prisons too?
Oh my..........Really? I'm beginning to think either the journalists or editors are doing this just to see if anyone is actually reading the whole piece.
Pinging nachum - does this qualify for The List?
Well, he is definitely not a danger to the community now!
When one of our friends got married, another friend built a chicken “coupe” on a trailer and painted it pink.
Then the guys locked it onto his truck’s trailer hitch.
He and his bride drove away from the church with a chicken coop in tow - full of chickens, feathers flying out of the windows, and the rooster crowing!
Sounds like the co-worker definitely had “connections”.
OK I give up - what was his connection to the Clintons?
This guy was able to do some weird stuff according to the writer.
He took off of work ‘because he can’?
Was his throat slashed before or after his face was on the table in front of him? Didn’t anyone in the courtroom notice?
I thought sharp items were not allowed in jail. It must have been extremely slow and painful slashing one’s throat with a plastic knife, or was it a paper cut?
Hard to say it belongs in the Dead Pool. I need more info on his connections to the administration.
Malcolm Little, AKA Malcolm X was recruited by the Nation of Islam while he was in prison in the late 1940’s. You can't spit in a U.S. prison without hitting a Muslim.
Van Jones used to brag that it was in prison that he became radicalized.
One of Obama’s henchmen now.
Only the writer saw it and reported it. A whistle blower?
I thought sharp items were not allowed in jail
Perhaps they make exceptions for inmates who think they are sharp?
Like those who don't want to share their cell? I'd hate to ask the writer what the real story is - those paper cuts can be nasty.
In prisons too? Surely you jest!!!!

That’s why they take away your shoelaces...
That's someone else's response, not mine.
We are doing a spoof on how the writer writes.
NBC is calling it a suicide:
I did a cursory search to see if there is a biography. I was unable to find one. I’m wondering if there is a possibility that once he got into legal trouble, if his bio was scrubbed a bit.
I found his name on various documents from when he was at the dept of labor, but not much else.
with friends like that...
... everyone will remember your wedding!
[NBC is calling it a suicide]
That would mean it was murder at the hands of the administration.
And I just saw this on yahoo...
“Michael Hastings, the award-winning journalist whose explosive 2010 Rolling Stone profile of U.S. Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal (”The Runaway General”) led to McChrystal’s resignation, died Tuesday in an early morning car accident in Los Angeles, the magazine said. He was 33.
“Hard-charging, unabashedly opinionated, Hastings was original and at times abrasive,” Rolling Stone, where he was a contributing editor, said in an obituary. “He had little patience for flacks and spinmeisters and will be remembered for his enthusiastic breaches of the conventions of access journalism.”
Hastings, who covered the 2008 presidential election for Newsweek, was hired by Buzzfeed last spring to cover President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign.
“We are shocked and devastated by the news that Michael Hastings is gone,” Buzzfeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith said in a statement....”
