    Union Leader ^ | March 21. 2015
    U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen shamed herself with a vote that no one in New Hampshire should ever forget. That day, to her eternal discredit, she voted against a bill to help sex trafficking victims - on the order of her biggest campaign donor. The bill was the Justice for Victims of Sex Trafficking Act. Among its bipartisan list of cosponsors are Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte and Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. The bill would create a sex trafficking victim assistance fund, financed by revenue from criminal fines. Just before the bill was to come up for a vote, the abortion...

    WASHINGTON (February 3, 2015) - Hillary Rodham Clinton will be honored next month by EMILY's List, a Democratic fundraising powerhouse, as she considers a potential 2016 presidential campaign that could make her the first woman to win the White House. EMILY's List, which works to elect Democratic women who support abortion rights, said Tuesday that Clinton would appear at its 30th anniversary awards gala in Washington on March 3. The former secretary of state will receive the group's We Are EMILY Award to honor her leadership "as a fighter for women and families," said Stephanie Schriock, the group's president. Schriock...

    If there is one main takeaway from Tuesday’s mid-term elections, it’s the fact that the phoney, baloney “war on women” is over. Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and their pro-abortion allies have desperately tried to tag pro-life groups and candidates with the anti-woman tag by claiming the oppose women by virtue of the fact that they oppose abortion and being forced to pay for abortion-causing drugs. oldwhitemenLast night’s overwhelming victory for pro-life candidates showed the abortion-centered ‘war on women’ strategy has completely failed. Most of the candidates in top-tier races where the war on women tactic was employed won their races. Abortion...

    The Dingell dynasty dates back to the era of FDR and there’s very little that can stop it from rolling on. Rep. John Dingell announced Monday he’s leaving the seat he took over from his father nearly six decades ago. And now his wife, Debbie Dingell, is planning to announce in the district Friday her candidacy for the open seat, according to a source close to Dingell. Dingell wasted no time putting together a campaign apparatus Monday, holding a conference call last night with her husband’s former aides. She also may sever ties with the American Automotive Policy Council where...

"New Yorkers deserve better than the circus their mayoral race has turned into. I actually caught myself glad I'm not home — where I'd have to see the cover of the NY Post on every street corner," communications director Jess McIntosh will write Friday morning in an email obtained by NBC News.

It’s our constitutional right. So now the GOP is limiting our access to both birth control AND abortion on demand. So a poor person like me, I can’t afford to have sex, unless it’s unprotected, and if a poor person accidentally gets pregnant, it’s now almost impossible to get an abortion.”“That’s why so many men and...

Several failed candidates who ran strong campaigns, but fell just short last year, are back for a rematch this election cycle. Whether they can use lessons learned in their losing campaign to change next year's results will go a long way in determining which party gains seats in the House.

Now, with the crucial midterm elections less than three months away, we’re being asked, in essence, another question – one that could resonate through the 2012 presidential campaign: Who’s your Mama Grizzly? Unlike Ronald Reagan’s classic query, which he offered during his final televised debate with then-President Jimmy Carter a week before the 1980 election, the Mama Grizzly battle is being played out on YouTube, in a sign of the times.

Three judges of the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington agreed with Emily's List, a nonprofit that backs women Democratic candidates who support abortion rights, that the regulations limited free speech rights. The Federal Election Commission enacted the rules in 2005, after concerns were raised about the amount of unlimited "soft money" contributions used to fund attacks in the 2004 election.

    Democratic Rep. John Dingell has taken on heads of multibillion-dollar corporations, Cabinet secretaries and presidents during his 47 years as a congressman. But he has had few real political challenges like the one he is facing this summer. The most senior member of the House is looking at his toughest re-election bid in almost four decades, and the challenge is coming from a younger, more liberal congresswoman in his own party. Rep. Lynn Rivers got her political start in the mid-1980s when she was frustrated with her daughter's reading program and ran for the school board. Neither candidate wants to...

    For anyone who has seen The Manchurian Candidate, the recent nomination of Hank Paulson for Treasury Secretary should be a big scare. In the film, private interests brainwash a candidate for the presidency. By using psychological triggers, the private (or I suppose we could call them “special”) interest manipulates the unknowing candidate as a puppet to do their bidding.  On Tuesday President Bush announced his nomination of Henry “Hank” Paulson for Treasury Secretary. Paulson, currently the CEO of financial giant Goldman Sachs, is generally well-regarded by his peers on Wall Street. During his tenure, Goldman has seen some of the...

    Imagine you're the head of a women's group that backs abortion. In your quest to elect candidates who agree with your position, you're likely to talk up the importance of the issue to your membership and how they are excited to vote for like-minded candidates. Yet, the political director of a nationally renown pro-abortion organization told the Christian Science Monitor newspaper that abortion is not an issue that drive women voters -- nor is it their top priority. Karen White of Emily's List, a political organization that backs pro-abortion candidates, says abortion "is not an issue where a woman wakes...

    EMILY's List, a national organization that advocates for the election of pro-choice Democratic women, fears declining numbers of women in the political pipeline could reverse decades of advances for the fairer sex in the California Legislature. Nearly half of the Legislature's 37 elected women will lose their seats to term limits in 2006, and an additional 11 will see their time run out in 2008. If women fail to run and win these open seats, the number of women in the Legislature could plummet to 10, or just 8 percent of the 120-member Assembly and Senate. "Term limits open up...

    Word was coming late Wednesday that Pennsylvania State Treasurer Bob Casey, Jr. was prepared to announce as early as Thursday or more likely Friday that he will throw his hat into the ring to challenge Sen. Rick Santorum in 2006. Casey has been actively recruited by both Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid and Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee chairman Charles Schumer. Casey, a pro-life Catholic, is viewed by the Democrats as the strongest candidate they could field against the conservative Catholic Santorum. Schumer and Reid, according to Democratic Senate staffers, have both reached out to Casey in the past week and...

    A group that helps female Democratic candidates who support abortion rights is asking a federal judge to block new campaign finance rules that it argues will cripple its ability to participate in state and local elections. The lawsuit filed Wednesday by EMILY's List in U.S. District Court asks a judge to block Federal Election Commission regulations that took effect Jan. 1. The group contends that the commission exceeded its authority and violated free-speech rights by imposing the new fund-raising and spending limits.

    (Columbia) Nov. 1, 2004 - The State Election Commission says some voters may have received incorrect information about the location of polling places from a get-out-the-vote telephone effort.

Andino says voters who might be confused should check the polling location at A spokeswoman for Emily's List says the organization placed about 171,000 computerized calls this morning to Democratic voters. Ramona Oliver with Emily's List says the organization has gotten four phone...

    Billionaire currency trader George Soros, in his quest to unseat President Bush, has given millions of dollars to a coalition of anti-Bush organizations whose nationwide voter-registration drive has been targeted by state and federal authorities for possible widespread fraud. Working under an umbrella organization known as America Votes, the coalition's registration drive — described by election officials as the largest in U.S. history — focused on potential voters in 14 so-called battleground states.

    "My family is more important to me than my party," declared  Senator Zell Miller, a Georgia Democrat, as he spoke from the podium of the Republican National Convention on September 1. "There is but one man to whom I am willing to entrust their future and that man's name is George Bush." [1] Many Democrats howled in outrage at Miller's "betrayal" - former President Jimmy Carter in particular. In an angry personal letter to the Georgia senator, Carter accused Miller of "unprecedented disloyalty" and declared, "You have betrayed our trust. [I]t's quite possible that your rabid speech damaged our party..." [2] But...

    Two People, Two Deaths Paul Weyrich Thursday, Mar. 18, 2004 Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle (D-SD) stated in a letter to South Dakotans that he favored acting "expeditiously" on the Unborn Victims of Violence Act. In his June 12, 2003 letter, Daschle stated: "I agree with the Republican Leader that Congress should consider this issue expeditiously." The rhetoric of the Senate Minority Leader fails to match the record. The Unborn Victims of Violence failed to reach the Senate floor quickly. After all, Tom Daschle has a voting record slanted in favor of legalized abortion, having voted for the Harkin (D-Iowa)...

    EMILY's List, the left-wing feminist underwriter of Democratic candidates, has seen a 30 percent decrease in its fundraising over the past year. In fact, coming out of its presidential candidate forum of May 20, it was surprised to see that the high-profile event had garnered it only about 75 percent of what it had expected to raise on the program. "Everyone has been hit hard by the economy and the lack of a really strong candidate," says a DNC fundraiser. "Our people seem to be waiting for one of them the step forward, then you'll see the money start to...
