    The Democratic Governors Association is accusing Fox News of making an illegal campaign contribution to a Republican gubernatorial candidate, the Huffington Post reports. The DGA reportedly filed a complaint with the Ohio Elections Commission accusing Fox of giving Ohio candidate John Kasich free political advertising. (Snip) Promoting Kasich's website while he was on air amounted to free political advertising, the DGA is arguing, which would be a violation of election laws. Fox also violated the rules by failing to provide a "paid for" disclaimer on its political advertisement, the DGA is charging.

    Leaders of the Senate’s principal oversight committee are accusing the Obama administration of stonewalling an investigation they have been conducting into the background to the deadly shootings at the Ft. Hood military base last Nov. 5, for which Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan was arrested and charged. Sen. Joseph Lieberman, the independent Democrat from Connecticut who chairs the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, and the panel’s ranking Republican, Sen.

    NEWPORT NEWS – When police got the call, they dropped everything. Cases went on the back burner; the focus of every available detective shifted to the Windsor Great Park neighborhood where an 18-year-old said someone put something around her throat, pulled her from her car, dragged her into an easement, and tried to rape her. “She was very distraught, and she was very upset, and it helped to add to the credibility of the story that she gave,” Captain Marvin Evans tells 13News. The head of the Newport News Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Bureau says officers would find out that...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) - US lawmakers Wednesday accused China of reneging on a commitment to improve human rights when it won the right to host the Olympics, saying it had instead intensified a crackdown on dissent. "There were early indications that China was prepared to improve its behavior as the games approached," said Howard Berman, the Democratic head of the House of Representatives foreign affairs panel. But "the hope was short-lived, as China failed to honor these commitments," he said, citing as examples Beijing's "failed" pledges to allow greater press freedoms and improve its general human rights situation.

    SACRAMENTO -- A state Senate hearing not only confirmed Wednesday that the governor's administration purchased a fleet of alternative fuel vehicles that have yet to burn anything but gasoline, but lawmakers also suggested that the vehicles were purchased to benefit a specific automaker that has a cozy relationship with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger: General Motors. Auto manufacturers and state officials confirmed that the contract specifications for the fleet purchases were dramatically changed two years ago in such a way that only GM cars met the requirements. "What they did was create a sole source contract," said Sen. Dean Florez, D-Bakersfield, who...

    Nato's top brass accuse Pakistan over Taliban aid By Ahmed Rashid in Kabul (Filed: 06/10/2006) Commanders from five Nato countries whose troops have just fought the bloodiest battle with the Taliban in five years, are demanding their governments get tough with Pakistan over the support and sanctuary its security services provide to the Taliban. Nato's report on Operation Medusa, an intense battle that lasted from September 4-17 in the Panjwai district, demonstrates the extent of the Taliban's military capability and states clearly that Pakistan's Interservices Intelligence (ISI) is involved in supplying it. President Pervez Musharraf Commanders from Britain, the US,...

    Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has apologized to local Muslim leaders who accused him of taking Israel's side in the violence in Lebanon by appearing at a pro-Israel rally and ignoring their invitations to attend Muslim peace vigils. Villaraigosa met with 10 Muslim leaders Sunday and explained that a mix-up by his staff prevented him from seeing the invitations, said his spokeswoman Janelle Erickson. "The mayor did apologize that the staff didn't place the meeting on his schedule sooner," said Erickson, who described the hour-long discussion as "open and friendly." Villaraigosa called the meeting after the Muslim leaders held a news conference...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - A federal grand jury indicted two Southern California men Wednesday with conspiracy to smuggle surface-to-air missiles into the United States. Such missiles are designed to bring down aircraft. The U.S. attorney's office said the charges against Chao Tung Wu, 51, of La Puente and Yi Qing Chen, 41, of Rosemead marked the first time a 2004 anti-terrorism statute has been used. The statute calls for a mandatory minimum sentence of 25 years and the possibility of life in prison without parole if convicted. The men have been in custody since August when they were arrested as...

    Senators accuse EPA of minimizing health hazards in New Orleans WASHINGTON The Bush administration was accused today by senators in both parties of minimizing health hazards from the toxic soup left by Hurricane Katrina, just as they said it did with air pollution in New York from the September eleventh attacks. More than a month after the storm, compounded by Hurricane Rita, Environmental Protection Agency officials said one (m) million people lack clean drinking water around New Orleans. Some 70 (m) million tons of hazardous waste remain on the Gulf Coast. While E-P-A officials have warned of serious health hazards...

    Bushmen accuse Mbeki of treating them as 'unpure bastards' By Christopher Munnion in Johannesburg (Filed: 07/10/2005) The ancient Khoi-San people, commonly known as the Bushmen, have accused South Africa's government of implying that they are not African at all but mixed race "bastards". Chief Elwin White said the refusal by President Thabo Mbeki's government to grant his 5,000-strong community official status as the country's earliest inhabitants was insulting. He said the government treated them as "highly-stressed coloureds [mixed race people] who are without a sense of belonging, with any creative spirit, confused, anxious and mostly drunk". "The government officially and...

    Leftists accuse U.S. of harboring Cuban bomber By Anthony Boadle 45 minutes ago HAVANA (Reuters) - Left-wing politicians and intellectuals attending a conference on terrorism in Cuba accused the U.S. government on Thursday of harboring a Cuban exile blamed for the bombing of an airliner in 1976. They said the Bush administration had a double standard in its post-9/11 war on terror because it refused to extradite former CIA operative Luis Posada Carriles to Venezuela to stand trial for the downing of a Cuban plane that killed 73 people. The meeting, headed by Cuban President Fidel Castro at Havana's convention...

    I know Mr. O has accused Mackris of extortion, but I don't think I have ever seen where he has flat-out denied saying those things to Mackris over the phone. I saw an article today where O's lawyers said that Mackris could have hung up if she felt threatened. That makes it sound like O did, in fact, say the things attributed to him by The Smoking Gun and others. Thoughts?

    NAACP: Nonpartisan Branch of the Democratic Party By Andrew L. Jaffee, July 16, 2004 Home   Search   Forum   Terms NAACP Chairman Julian Bond claims his organization is “nonpartisan” while at the same time using vitriolic rhetoric to attack the Bush administration. Why would President Bush wish to speak before the NAACP after the way in which they’ve treated him? Some claim Bush should swallow his pride and speak before the group in the interest of “outreach.” I would argue that Bush has already engaged in more outreach than any other administration in U.S. history: 2001: President George W. Bush appoints: Condoleezza Rice, Assistant...

    ABINGDON, Va. (AP) - Six officials accepted NASCAR tickets, clothes, a hunting dog and other bribes totaling $545,000 to steer disaster relief money to contractors, authorities charged Thursday. The accused in a 43-count federal indictment include former Buchanan County Board of Supervisors chairman Stuart Ray Blankenship, who faces up to 60 years in prison and a $1 million fine. At a news conference outside federal court, U.S. Attorney John L. Brownlee scolded the indicted officials, saying they stole from flood-ravaged families "in their time of great need."

    Longtime Bush judicial nominee Charles Pickering finally made it out of the Judiciary Committee October 2, after waiting nearly two and a half years and enduring one of the worst campaigns of character assassination waged by the left-wing borking squad. Despite decades of working toward racial reconciliation, the Mississippi native and federal district judge found himself branded a racist by liberal interest groups and the Democrat senators who look to them for their marching orders. He was defeated on a party-line committee vote early last year even though he had votes for confirmation in the Democrat-controlled Senate. Last year's blatant...
