    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was unequivocal in his condemnation of the actions taken by some of his staffers last fall to exact political retribution by closing George Washington Bridge traffic lanes and causing major backups, but he continued to deny any prior knowledge of the plot in a press conference Thursday. Christie began by apologizing to the people of Fort Lee and New Jersey, and said he would be traveling to Fort Lee later Thursday to repeat his sentiment directly to the most affected community. "I am embarrassed and humiliated by the conduct of some of the people on...

    A postal worker claiming disability benefits after injuring herself on the job has been accused of being a liar after she appeared on The Price is Right and spun the 'big wheel' twice without difficulty. Cathy Wrench Cashwell, a grandmother from Fayetteville, North Carolina, said that she was unable to lift trays of mail after she hurt her shoulder while at work in 2004. But she pleaded guilty to fraud in federal court on Monday after an indictment claimed she appeared physically well while on the game show in September 2009. It explained that she 'raised her left arm above...

    At least 30 of the giant bolts that hold together the new, $6.4 billion eastern span of the Bay Bridge have snapped. As a result, Caltrans is considering replacing all 288 of the bolts on the new bridge before it opens, The Chronicle has learned. Caltrans insists the new span is safe and that plans to open it the day after Labor Day are still on track. However, officials say it's too early to determine how long it will take to fix the problem - or the cost. Toll Bridge Program Manager Tony Anziano said engineers are "pretty confident" the...

    Isn't it obvious? Of course he didn't mean what he said four times while off script a few weekends ago! What the president genuinely meant is written right in the teleprompter, after his messaging team spent more than a week figuring out how to "clarify" his comments. He's slipping, guys. Historically, Team Obama has been much faster at turning the truth on its head. Time's Mark Halperin says The One finds himself on the defensive: A campaign never wants to let the opposition dictate what it advertises on. I don’t know if this purely defensive move is based on the...

    The Obama administration will not implement a controversial piece of the healthcare reform law, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Friday. Sebelius said the department will not continue trying to implement the CLASS program, which was intended to provide insurance for long-term care. Republicans charged that the program’s financial structure was unsustainable, and Sebelius conceded as much Friday. “We have not identified a way to make CLASS work at this time,” she wrote on the Huffington Post's website. Sebelius said HHS will “suspend” implementation of the program. The department recently reassigned the people it had placed in the...

    Californians are bummed out. The Golden State's residents rated their quality of life at its lowest mark in almost 20 years, citing the economic downturn and stagnant personal finances, according to a joint UC Berkeley and Field Poll. "Residents are reconsidering the image of the Golden State and showing more ambivalence toward it," said Jack Citrin, a Berkeley political science professor who co-wrote the report. "The changes going on - socially, culturally, economic - have made people here less Pollyannaish about the reality of life here." The poll, based on a telephone survey of 898 registered voters in February, showed...

    Communists have a well deserved reputation for altering history or "sanitizing the past to suit their purpose. But that's all in the past, they are open and honest now.... they would never use deception to advance their agenda, would they......? President Obama has a long history with several radical groups, including the Communist Party USA. The communists naturally want to protect their "friend" from negative fallout should such associations become publicly known. It seems they are even willing to censor or alter their own publications to hide evidence of their past support for the President. Thankfully "wayback" provides proof positive...

    HUNTINGTON BEACH - A Laguna Niguel woman accused of using a false identity to obtain breast implants from a plastic surgeon is facing felony charges of second-degree burglary, grand theft and identity theft, according to Orange County Superior Court records.

Pampellone faces three years and eight months in prison if convicted. She remains free on $20,000 bail and is due back in court on June 29. Pampellone surrendered to police...

    US Congressional Candidate Cindy Sheehan Calls on Pelosi to Explain Silence on Torture Briefing. US Congressional Candidate Cindy Sheehan today called upon Nancy Pelosi to respond to a story printed in the December 9 Washington Post which claims that the Speaker of the House was present in a 2002 meeting where four members of Congress were given a virtual tour of the CIA's overseas detention sites and torture program. According to the CIA, no objections were raised by any member of Congress present in the meeting, even though waterboarding, the interrogation technique profiled in the meeting, is illegal under international...

    Looks like Bush has handed a last minute victory to Conservatives and Free Marketeers on his way out the door. The key provision of the $17 Billion bailout for the automakers is that union wages must be lowered to match the non-union wages of U.S.-based foreign car companies. From the Washington Post. But with the announcement of the federal loan deal yesterday, the union found itself being forced into concessions that some described as tantamount to surrender. The $17.4 billion federal loan agreement does keep the domestic auto industry alive. But the terms of that loan also insist that the...

    Hack the Olympics! There's been some widely publicized controversy regarding the competition age of the Chinese women's gymnastics team recently. Rather than be too CNN, I decided to take a page from my friend Johnny and investigate on my own. I have an Internet connection, that means I should be able to verify the age of the gymnasts in question with primary state-issued documents and find out for myself if someone's cheating, right? Right. Let's go to work.

    Barack Obama's campaign changed the rules of a highly publicized fundraiser Tuesday, after gambling regulators said the contest — a chance at one of 10 trips to the Democratic National Convention — was an illegal lottery. "We are happy to have resolved this issue working closely with state officials," said Nick Kimball, spokesman for the Obama campaign ... A spokesman for the Colorado Secretary of State said Democrats would have to get a license if they were conducting "a standard raffle where they're buying tickets" in order to win. But under the new rules, supporters don't have to donate money...
  • What's the best election prediction site out there?

    There have been many sites crop up recently that claim to predict what will happen in November. My favorite since 2004 - and I think the most accurate - has been Election Projection. They predicted the 2004 race between Bush and Kerry to within 3 EVs of the actual result and got every Senate race right in 2006. Anyone out there agree? Disagree? Discuss...

    A family owned commercial fishing business in Virginia and two of its owners paid $6.8 million in fines and forfeitures after pleading guilty to hiring 126 illegal aliens to work on their boats. The charge is a misdemeanor and federal prosecutors had recommended home confinement in addition to the monetary penalties, but U.S. District Judge Raymond A. Jackson sentenced Yvonne Michelle Peabody, the company’s vice president, to three months in prison. At the sentencing hearing last month, the judge said he was making an example out of Peabody, who had served on the Mid-Atlantic Fisheries Council’s law enforcement subcommittee at...

    Sacramento Bee ^ | 5/6/8 | Judy Lin
    California is facing a cash crisis this summer, putting pressure on elected officials to submit an on-time state budget or risk asking taxpayers to pay a premium on loans. In the past, the state has been able to pay its bills despite projected deficits by borrowing money internally from some state special funds and by selling short-term notes on Wall Street. But a lack of cash reserves this year combined with lagging revenues has led officials to predict that the state will run out of cash as early as August, giving lawmakers a smaller-than-expected window to strike a budget deal....

    SAN LORENZO -- Alameda County sheriff's investigators raided suspected houses of prostitution and "flipped" one of them - taking over the business to solicit customers - during a multicity operation that resulted in 32 arrests, authorities said today. Sheriff's deputies searched eight businesses and five homes in Castro Valley, Hayward, San Leandro and Fremont on Thursday, sheriff's Sgt. J.D. Nelson said. Investigators took over one business on Lewelling Boulevard in San Lorenzo and arrested nine men. "We raided it and then we just assumed the operation," Nelson said. Authorities seized $50,000 in cash, froze another $200,000 in assets and seized...
