    TOWN OF CAMPBELL — The town of Campbell police chief who tarnished his department’s reputation in a case of cyber-warfare will resign from his position today and seek duty-related mental health disability benefits. The town will pay Tim Kelemen, 37, for 335 accrued hours under an agreement negotiated by the chief’s lawyer and the town’s attorney and approved unanimously Thursday by the Campbell Town Board. “It’s not a good day for the town. It’s not a good day for Tim Kelemen,” town attorney Brent Smith said. “It’s not the way you want to end an employment relationship.” An attorney who...

Kelemen's lawyer says the chief will apply for disability benefits for a mental health condition he says stems from harassment by the local tea party activists.

    Glen Campbell has been moved into a care facility three years after being diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, People.com reports. "He was moved to an Alzheimer's facility last week," a family friend told the title. "I'm not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We'll know more next week." The singer, whose "Rhinestone Cowboy" topped the charts in 1975, had been suffering from short-term memory loss in recent years. He was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in early 2011. The 78-year-old Grammy winner and his wife Kim initially shared the news of his illness back in 2011 because he’d hoped...

    The town of Campbell, Wis., is facing a federal lawsuit challenging ordinance 9.12, which bans the display of banners or flags on or near the town’s pedestrian overpass. Demonstrators began using the overpass in August 2013 to call for President Obama’s impeachment and to display patriotism. After a gathering in October angered local citizens and garnered media attention, the Town of Campbell passed the ordinance, which prohibits the display of signs, flags or banners within 100 feet of the overpass. On Oct. 24, Gregory Luce and a few supporters, wearing T-shirts that collectively spelled out “IMPEACH OBAMA,” were ordered by...

It's bad news for the former congressman and good news for Carly Fiorina, the former chief executive officer of Hewlett-Packard and the front-runner in the race. She led Campbell by 38 percent to 23 percent in the latest Los Angeles Times/USC poll. "We had a buy reserved through the end of the campaign, and we canceled," Jamie...

    GOP Senate hopeful Tom Campbell has been attacked by both the right and the left in recent weeks, as National Rifle Association attacks his position on gun rights and the liberal group Courage Campaign California targets his support of Arizona's controversial immigration law. With three weeks to go until the June 8 primary, Campbell downplayed the attacks as well as his lack of resources compared to the robust campaign war chests of rival Carly Fiorina and incumbent Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer. The NRA reportedly started sending mailers last weekend urging members to oppose Campbell for casting "anti-gun votes" in the...

    The hotly contested race for the Republican nomination in both the U.S. Senate and Attorney General races are tightening up with the primary only three weeks away, the Small Business Action Committee/M4 Strategies Poll found. In the U.S. Senate contest, Tom Campbell leads with field with 32.6%, with Carly Fiorina close behind at 28.2%, and Chuck DeVore tallying 15.3%. Fiorina has made the biggest movement since the SBAC/M4 Strategies poll in February. At that time, Campbell had a similar 32%, Fiorina was at 18% and DeVore stood at 11%. The poll conducted on May 12, 13, and 16 of 600...

    Tom Campbell is seen as a moderate Republican, although he’s a Friedmanite conservative on economic issues. But his moderate pose has made him the most acceptable to the general electorate in California among the three candidates in the June GOP Senate primary. Campbell posts the best numbers against Barbara Boxer, basically in a dead heat, while Carly Fiorina and Chuck DeVore trail. Given this reality, you’d think that Campbell would be pressing this advantage and making sure he wins the nomination from a state GOP that trends far to the right. But instead, he’s chopped his ad buy. Ex-Rep. Tom...
  • DeVore Should Drop Out of the Senate Race in California and Endorse Fiorina (Hot Air Goes Wobbly)

    Chuck DeVore is a solid conservative, very well-qualified to be senator or to hold other important offices or positions, but he doesn’t seem to have a prayer of both overtaking Carly Fiorina and defeating Tom Campbell in the June 8 Republican senate primary. He should drop out and, following Sarah Palin’s lead, endorse Fiorina for the good of the conservative movement, the state, and the nation. I’m not going to attempt to compare Fiorina to DeVore: That would have been a more worthwhile undertaking if Campbell, supposedly at the behest of gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman, hadn’t switched to the senate...

    Hours after Republican U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina contributed $1.1 million more of her own money to her primary campaign, a new snapshot poll Friday showed her faring worse in a head-to-head matchup against incumbent Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer than former South Bay Rep. Tom Campbell. A May 12 Rasmussen poll of 500 likely voters, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.5 percentage points, shows Boxer leading Campbell 42 percent to 41 percent while the senator tops Fiorina by seven percentage points. Orange County Assemblyman Chuck DeVore, R-Irvine, fares better than Fiorina in a head-to-head matchup, trailing...

    Open Letter to Carly Fiorina: Please Quit and Support Chuck DeVore Posted on 15 May 2010 by admin Share I am offering an open, heartfelt letter to Carly Fiorina, GOP candidate for U.S. Senate in California. I hope many people will send it to her and she will take this advice. I give this advice, as someone not paid for this commentary by any individual or by any campaign, though I do support Chuck DeVore. I write this to you Carly, because I am your age, I have been covering politics since the late 1970s and I have seen a...
  • Terrorist Suspects Should Be Interrogated, Not 'Mirandized'

    Once arrested, a terrorist suspect should be interrogated for information regarding any imminent terrorist attacks. That is the top priority. It is critical not to give such suspects the chance to delay answering questions while waiting for a court-appointed attorney. Reminding the terrorist suspect that he or she has the right to remain silent can only increase the possibility that the terrorist suspect will remain silent. It is completely contrary to our country's immediate interest in preventing the loss of innocent life from more terrorist attacks. It was, therefore, amazing to hear Carly Fiorina and Chuck Devore in the recent...

    It looks like Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Carly Fiorina in the California GOP U.S. Senate race is actually a “negative.” It also appears from the latest poll that Californians who care about the abortion issue are supporting Chuck DeVore, even though Fiorina (who supports the appointment of pro-abortion Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor and campaigned as “pro-choice” for John McCain in 2008) inexplicably received the California Pro-Life Council endorsement. You want polls to prove that Chuck DeVore is on the way UP and Carly Fiorina is on the way DOWN? Here it is! Poll results from Team DeVore, followed by...

    ...Campbell said that if he were in the Senate, he would vote “no” on the nomination — with the caveat that he would consider any additional information that emerges in the Senate hearings. Orange County Assemblyman Chuck DeVore would also vote against Kagan’s nomination if he were in the Senate, his spokesman said, adding that DeVore would release a statement detailing his reasons later this evening. Fiorina said she would reserve judgment until the vetting is completed. “Given Ms. Kagan’s brief litigation experience, lack of any judicial experience and in light of some of the information publicly available about her...

    Former New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman, co-chair of the Republican Leadership Council, said Monday that GOP candidates in the current election cycle must reject the "the party of no" profile and the idea that "compromise is a dirty word" -- and endorsed former Rep. Tom Campbell in California's hotly contested GOP U.S. Senate race. "We feel he is the candidate which, besides being able to win in the fall...also brings those kinds of characteristics to play to the office that will make him a very effective Senator, and one that can start to solve problems,'' Whitman said in a...

    In his two unsuccessful runs for U.S. Senate, former South Bay Rep. Tom Campbell touted his unusual political pedigree: He is a Republican who supports abortion and gay rights. That perch may help the 58-year-old Campbell should he advance to a November match-up against three-term incumbent Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer. But as he battles more conservative challengers in the June 8 Republican primary, Campbell is trying to tamp down his social positions.And he is getting criticized for it from the left and the right in a season where anti-Washington sentiment and Tea Party rabble-rousing are everywhere.So far, Campbell's tightrope walk...
