    Democratic Kentucky state Sen. Julian Carroll was officially removed from his position as minority whip Sunday following a local news report that alleged the lawmaker groped a male staffer in 2005. The Senate Democratic caucus formally voted to remove Carroll and called for him to resign his office, according to a Spectrum News report. “In light of recent media reports, the Senate Democratic Caucus has voted to remove Senator Carroll from his leadership position as minority whip,” Senate Democrats said in a statement. “The Senate Democratic Caucus calls on Senator Carroll to resign his Kentucky State Senate seat, immediately.” The...

    One of the quirks of the primary calendar is that the Democrats have their South Carolina Primary a week after the Republicans. Democrats are concentrated on the Nevada Caucus, which takes place on February 20. Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have been campaigning out west, therefore. Since a recent poll suggested that Clinton and Sanders are essentially tied, Team Hillary has been rolling out the expectations game, suggesting since the Democratic electorate is 80 percent white, Sanders has the advantage, just like in New Hampshire. The stance has backfired because it has gotten Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid angry at...

    Editor's note: This is another in a series of "WND/WENZEL POLLS" conducted exclusively for WND by the public-opinion research and media consulting company Wenzel Strategies. Former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has said that the 2012 run for the Oval Office will be an out-of-the-box event. But just what did she mean? Voters eventually will find out, presumably. But just in case her "out-of-the-box" reference means something as surprising as challenging Barack Obama in a Democratic Party primary, Fritz Wenzel of Wenzel Strategies included the scenario in his newest poll on the coming election. The telephone...

    Just when a guy was thinking he could get to bed early tomorrow night, what happens? The caucuses got interesting.The conventional wisdom long ago awarded the Democratic nod to Howard Dean. Then all of sudden the polls showed Dean neck-and-neck (and neck) with John Kerry and Dick Gephardt, with John Edwards closing fast on the outside. Tomorrow night should be fun.Even more fascinating will be the post-mortem. Whether Dean manages to hold on or not, analysts will be trying to explain how his seemingly insurmountable lead was surmounted, or nearly so.I think the answer may be timing. Dean's primary appeal...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — State Sen. Gonzalo Barrientos of Austin passes up lunch at the Hilton for a $6 chili dog with sauerkraut. Sen. Eliot Shapleigh has asked his El Paso law partners to take on his clients. And Sen. Leticia Van de Putte took out a loan on her life insurance policy to make up for lost wages. In their 30 days of self-imposed exile, the 11 Texas Democrats who fled the state to block a vote on congressional redistricting have found their own ways of bearing the mounting costs of their political battle. Van de Putte, a San Antonio...
