    Roll Call ^ | October 17, 2013 | David Hawkings
    All of the congressional Republicans with viable 2016 presidential ambitions voted against the bill enacted overnight to reopen the government and increase federal borrowing. So did two members of the Senate GOP leadership and three members of the party’s House leadership. The opponents also included a majority of the Republicans who are chairmen of House committees and most of the members of the House GOP caucus who aspire to election to the Senate next year. While the Democrats were unified in their support for the legislation, a review of Wednesday night’s back-to-back roll calls in Congress reveals just how divided...

    U.S. Rep. Grace Meng (D-NY) announced Sunday that she has spearheaded a bipartisan letter calling on the French government to cancel plans to release a convicted terrorist who was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of an American and an Israeli diplomat. The letter, which was sent to France’s Ambassador to the United States, urges French officials to stop the release of George Ibrahim Abdallah, the former head of the Lebanese Armed Revolutionary Brigade who was convicted in 1987 of killing an Israeli diplomat and a U.S. military attaché. The U.S. State Department has also expressed its opposition...

    Dem Recruit Attacks GOP Congressman for Backing ObamaBy Josh Kraushaar November 30, 2011 | 12:05 PM Here's a telling sign of how much President Obama's fortunes have changed since 2008 -- a leading Democratic Congressional recruit is now attacking a Republican congressman for supporting the president. Former Ohio Democratic congressman Charlie Wilson, who was attacked relentlessly for being too close with President Obama in last year's losing campaign, kicked off his comeback bid today by accusing his Republican rival of the same sin. Wilson, who represented a rural, blue-collar district along the Ohio River, is seeking a rematch against freshman...

    Lexington Herald Leader ^ | 9/20/2011 | Jack Brammer
    FRANKFORT — The Executive Branch Ethics Commission has decided to take no action on a complaint filed by Bill Johnson, Republican candidate for secretary of state, over voter registration of homeless people. Johnson said Tuesday that John Steffen, executive director of the ethics commission, told him that the panel lacks jurisdiction to consider his complaint against Secretary of State Elaine Walker and the State Board of Elections. After the commission's regular meeting Monday, Steffen declined to comment on the case, saying the panel can comment on a case only when it acts on it. Johnson contended in his complaint, filed...

    Eastern Ohio is a place of industry: for many years, the area was home to some of the most productive factories and mines in the United States.  Today, though industry has dissipated, the area is still reminiscent of those times and the people retain the conservative values that they embraced throughout the 20th century.  The sixth district runs along the Southeast borders of the state, touching Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Kentucky.  The district begins near Youngstown and continues south along the Ohio River through some of the most conservative parts of the state, including Steubenville, home of the Catholic Franciscan...
  • Life catches up to skier 'Wild Bill' Johnson

    Bill Johnson was always five pounds of dynamite in a four-pound box. When he was a kid, the cops could not contain him. Oh, they'd catch him now and then -- breaking into houses or stealing a car -- but they couldn't quell the explosive temperament. "Wild Bill," they called him. Downhill racing has always attracted such mad dogs and misfits -- it's almost a job requirement. Who else but a crazy person skims down a frozen Popsicle at 90 mph? So it seems somehow prearranged that, on ice-caked vistas, Johnson would find an outlet for his lawless zeal. From...

The answer to the Christmas day attack on flight 253 will be more federal spending and loss of what little personal privacy remains for the American traveler. “Instead of an ever...

    Bill Johnson: Rand and Ron Paul's Positions on Abortion "Worse Than Blackmun" Bill Johnson, candidate for US Senate in Kentucky, offers the following statement via email regarding Rand and Ron Paul's position on abortion and other issues: If the Pauls are willing to allow the States to deny due process for the unborn (whom they agree are persons), then the states can deny due process for the elderly, the sick, or anyone for that matter. Why not allow the states to legalize slavery, take away our gun rights, or remove free speech? Why not let the states decide on all...

    ...It was a bad choice, but Olson was simply underqualified. This year it's more serious. Los Angeles voters, if they don't pay attention, could hand judicial robes to a racial separatist who called for restricting U.S. citizenship to persons "of the European race" and deporting blacks, Asians, Latinos and others who don't meet his racial criteria. The candidate is Bill Johnson. Under the name James O. Pace, he wrote the racial exclusion as a proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution and a 1985 book supporting it. Under the name Daniel Johnson, he ran a losing race for Congress in Wyoming...

    PORTLAND, Ore. - Olympic ski champion Bill Johnson was charged with assaulting an officer and resisting arrest after punching a sheriff's deputy in the face during a traffic stop, police said. Johnson was stopped in his pickup truck Friday by a Multnomah County sheriff's deputy and a suburban Troutdale police officer. When the officers approached, Johnson pulled out his 1984 gold medal and taunted them by saying, "You don't have one of these," police said. Authorities said Johnson threw his keys at Deputy Jeff Cordes, reached out his window, grabbed the deputy's shirt and punched him in the face. Johnson...
