    St. John’s University's so-called “Dean of Mean,” Cecilia Chang, was found dead of an apparent suicide inside her Queens home this morning, a day after melting down on the witness stand. Chang was on trial for allegedly embezzling $1 million from St. John's and using foreign students as her personal, indentured servants. Chang hung herself and cops found her body at 7:38 a.m. inside the disgraced administrator's Jamaica Estates home, according to federal and local law enforcement sources.

    Obama’s Fundamental Misconception [Gordon G. Chang] The best the defenders of President Obama’s trip to Asia can say at this moment is that the resounding chorus of criticism is premature. Of course, no presidential visit can be fully assessed until months — and sometimes years — after the event.But the president has united the political spectrum against him for his abandonment of human rights as a central element of the American dialogue with China. The New York Times gently put it this way this weekend: “The American president must always be willing to stand up to Beijing in defense of...

    MSNBC (The Financial Times) ^ | 5/18/2006 | Claudio Gatti
    The US Senate is looking into allegations that a former US senator urged Baghdad to give a US company lucrative contracts under the much-criticised United Nations oil-for-food programme. This is the first time that a leading US lawmaker has been linked to the controversial UN programme, whose shortcomings have been an important element of the Bush administration's critique of the UN. The investigation involves one of the most vivid figures in US east coast politics, former senator Robert Torricelli, a New Jersey Democrat who was forced to pull out of the 2002 election after being "severely admonished" by the Senate...

    Jeb Bush, Florida's Favorite Governor After more than an hour of solemn ceremony naming Rep. Marco Rubio, R-West Miami, as the 2007-08 House speaker, Gov. Jeb Bush stepped to the podium in the House chamber last week and told a short story about "unleashing Chang," his "mystical warrior" friend. Here are Bush's words, spoken before hundreds of lawmakers and politicians: ''Chang is a mystical warrior. Chang is somebody who believes in conservative principles, believes in entrepreneurial capitalism, believes in moral values that underpin a free society.

    SACRAMENTO (AP) - The state's political watchdog agency overstepped its authority by limiting donations to campaign committees controlled by elected officials and candidates, a Sacramento County Superior Court judge ruled Wednesday, a decision that could blow the amount of money spent in an upcoming special election wide open. Judge Shelleyanne Chang's preliminary ruling said a committee raising money for Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's proposed initiatives for an expected special election this fall may raise unlimited amount of money from individual donors. If Chang, who will hear oral arguments in the case Thursday, maintains her ruling, political committees controlled by the governor...

    WASHINGTON - Presidential Democratic hopeful John Kerry (news - web sites) is letting former Sen. Robert Torricelli raise money for him less than two years after the Senate formally rebuked Torricelli for his actions with a political donor. Torricelli, whose rising political career collapsed in 2002 after his fund raising became the subject of criminal and Senate investigations, said Friday he is not seeking a formal position in Kerry's campaign but has raised money for it. "I have asked people to send in checks," Torricelli said in a phone interview. "I have raised some money for John. I have known...
