    Government auditors faulted the controversial consumer finance bureau for mismanaging a $43 million contract with political advertising firm, and the bureau’s Republican director is now trying to get some of that money back. Various groups have criticized a contract the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) awarded to GMMB, a marketing and advertising firm that did work on election campaigns for former President Barack Obama and other Democratic candidates, for showing hints of political favoritism. In managing the five-year contract, the CFPB did not verify the expenditures GMMB made during its work with the government, particularly on labor costs, and did...

    Denver City Councilman Rafael Espinoza has asked for an independent investigation of Denver Mayor Michael Hancock following his video apology for sending inappropriate texts to Denver police officer Leslie Branch-Wise in 2011 and 2012, when she was on his security detail. But the controversy has also sparked renewed interest in stories from that same period suggesting that Hancock had been a client of the Denver Players/Denver Sugar prostitution ring, originally headed by former professional skier Scottie Ewing.

    NEWARK -- Essex County College's accrediting agency issued its most severe rebuke yet to the institution on Monday, citing the college's ongoing troubles and placing it on probation. The escalated action moves the college one step closer toward having its accreditation revoked, which would mean students are no longer eligible for federal financial aid and in most cases would be unable to afford attending the school and ending a revenue stream that could shut the college's doors. Losing accreditation is very rare but for Essex County College, which serves more than 10,000 students and employs 500 people, the consequences could...

    NEWARK — The community college serving one of New Jersey’s largest counties has been embroiled in controversy for the better part of the last two years. What started with the quick, unexpected ouster of its president last Spring has spiraled into one scandal after another that are now threatening the federal funding that keeps Essex County College’s doors open. The six scandals below have contributed to the Middle States Commission last week putting the college on probation. The school has another year to fix its finance and governance issues or risk losing its accreditation.

Rimbert is accused of submitting "forged and altered" documents to insurance firms in order to get wage reimbursement and disability payments for days she was purportedly out of work after two vehicle accidents, prosecutors said.

    Leaked DNC Emails reveal the Democrat hierarchy plotted to destroy the candidacy of Bernie Sanders by, among other things, using his “Jewishness” against him. This plot brings to mind some of the many slurs and belittlements used by Democrats over recent history against Jews, Blacks and Asians. Here are some of these slurs excerpted from the just released book, “The Dirty Locked Away History of The Democrat Party,” available as an Ebook on Amazon.com. The Ku Klux Klan, the first domestic terror organization in American history, was the anti-Black, anti-American arm of the 19th and 20th century Democrat Party. It...

    This installment shows the War on Women has always been conducted by the Democrats. They have always rubbed minorities in the dirt and bragged about it as they smugly went about their dirty business. Chapter Ten: Democrat assaults on Women and minorities Women Suffrage On January 10, 1878 Aaron Sargent, a California Republican, introduced Susan B. Anthony’s women suffrage bill which was defeated by the then majority Democrat Senate. Similar bills were defeated three more times by Democrat controlled Senates and woman’s suffrage only became a reality when it was finally passed by a Republican Senate and Republican House in...

Those who assume that African American's civil rights leaders have always been Democrats are simply wrong. In the 19th century, when they were given a chance to be publicly involved in the political phase of their struggle for their own freedoms, EVERY African American leader stood with the Republican Party. They knew their interests would be best served by membership in the Party that fought to free...
