    SAN ANTONIO — A motorist fleeing after being stopped by police struck and killed a pedestrian on the city's South Side Monday afternoon, police said. The motorist, Roxanne Campa, 31, was pulled over Monday around 5 p.m. for a traffic violation. The officer who pulled her over returned to the patrol car and found she had provided a false name. When the officer went back to talk to Campa, she took off in her vehicle, police said. Near the intersection of South Hackberry Street and Fair Avenue, Campa allegedly lost control of her car, jumped a curb and hit a...

    The top Republican on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is pressing the administration to disclose the White House political office’s role in coordinating taxpayer-funded travel by government officials on behalf of Democratic candidates.  Opening a new front in his push to investigate the Obama administration, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) sent a letter Thursday to 21 Cabinet secretaries and department heads seeking details on their political and official travel since February 2009, and whether the Office of Political Affairs coordinated those trips.  The inquiry is a new twist on a fight that congressional Democrats first waged against former President...

    Overall, 16.5% of violent crimes in Maricopa County can be linked to illegal immigrants. The average cost for each offense? A whopping $20,000, which includes prosecution, incarceration, and other costs. This study breaks down felonies committed into categories, revealing that contrary to media myths, illegal immigrants commit more crimes in categories completely separate from the crime of illegally crossing the border.  The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office has released a groundbreaking study with the help of Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s office breaking down the numbers of felonies illegal immigrants in Maricopa County commit. Contrary to media myths, illegal immigrants commit more felonies...

    It looks like Sarah Palin wasn’t the only target of an online hacker. Law enforcement officials are investigating claims that the private e-mail accounts of the Republican vice presidential candidate’s family and staff were also compromised. “Yesterday, the Department received a referral alleging that the personal e-mail accounts of Gov. Sarah Palin, her staff, and her family had been unlawfully hacked. The Department is reviewing the matter,” Justice Department spokeswoman Laura Sweeney said on Thursday. The FBI and Secret Service launched a formal investigation on Wednesday into the hacking of one of Palin’s Yahoo! e-mail accounts. Yahoo! declined to comment...

    Jefferson's staff heads for the exits Rep. William Jefferson, D-New Orleans, who went through a major staff turnover for the start of the 110th congressional session, is going through another staff upheaval. In the past couple of weeks, Jefferson lost his chief of staff, Eugene Green and press secretary Remi Braden-Cooper. A legislative assistant, Jack Swetland, has announced he's leaving soon. Calls to Jefferson's office seeking a comment were not returned. Jefferson was indicted June 4 by a Virginia grand jury on 16 charges including bribery, racketeering and violation of the foreign corruption practices act. A trial is now scheduled...

    A Bexar County review that apparently found illegal voting by undocumented immigrants has triggered a county investigation of voter fraud and a federal probe of false citizenship claims. County and federal officials acknowledged this week that they are looking into whether up to 41 non-citizens voted illegally in San Antonio, some repeatedly, in more than a dozen local, state and federal elections between 2001 and this year. Bexar County District Attorney Susan Reed's office has joined the investigation, which began in late May when the Homeland Security Department's Immigration and Customs Enforcement requested a report prepared by Bexar County Elections...

    The disciplinary arm of the N.C. State Bar dropped charges of felonious misconduct against two former Union County prosecutors Friday because of a 1999 clerical error at the state Supreme Court. The State Bar had charged Kenneth Honeycutt and Scott Brewer with lying, cheating and withholding evidence in a 1996 death penalty case. The ruling Friday marks the second time that Honeycutt and Brewer won on procedural grounds before the bar's Disciplinary Hearing Commission, which sits as judge and jury in disciplinary cases. . . . Prosecutors around the state are concerned that the case is damaging their reputation and...

    Is Abortion and Illegal Migrationm Linked? Accidents do not happen, because every physical event has a physical cause. The birth of a galaxy or a human being, does not happen without cause. Whatever the phenomenon, nothing happens without some "retrospective coherent" event. The actual cause may be obscure or unrecognizable, but the principle of cause and effect is always operative. Still, lacking total knowledge, we will attempt to remedy our problems even when the quality of our information is imprecise and superficial. Because we are constantly adding to our store of knowledge, the "retrospective coherent" events become less chaotic and...

I have been on the phone calling radio news stations and local TV affiliates in Los Angeles to see if they were covering the story. No one knows about the story. How can that be possible? Not even KFWB knows, the main news radio station in Los Angeles. The mainstream media is going to have to be dragged kicking and screaming into covering this story. It has the potential to derail Queen Hillary's run...

    A top fund-raising official on Senator Clinton's campaign, David Rosen, plans to defend himself against federal felony charges by arguing that he was tricked by two "self-confessed 'con men'" involved in planning an August 2000 fund-raiser. Mr. Rosen, a Chicago political consultant, faces trial in Los Angeles next week on an indictment alleging that he caused the filing of false campaign finance reports that understated the cost of the star-studded gala by $500,000 or more. In a motion filed Tuesday, Mr. Rosen's lawyers disclosed that they plan to claim that their client was deceived by a businessman who was the...

    Special to FreeRepublic ^ | 30 April 2005 | John Armor (Congressman Billybob)
    On 18 July, 1969, Ted Kennedy drove his car off a bridge on Chappaquiddick. He escaped, but left Mary Jo Kopechne to suffocate in the submerged car. That ended his chances of ever being President. Now Hillary Clinton has experienced an event with a similar political result. On 15 October, 2000, Hillary Clinton’s 2000 Senatorial Campaign filed a report with the Federal Election Campaign that included falsified cost statements (about $750,000 low) for her Hollywood Gala on 12 August. Her National Finance Director, David Rosen, has just been indicted on four felony counts for that and related filings. Those events...

    One does not expect honor from those operating in an illegal system. And let's face it, if our Constitution is supposed to be the "law of the land," the federal government we have now must be the most successful illegal operation in the history of this nation. The U.S. Supreme Court has said many times that when we look for an explanation of what is meant (what was intended by the authors) in the Constitution, one should turn to The Federalist Papers as an expert source for guidance. That being so, we see that we now have a government greatly...

    Planned Parenthood clinics, National Abortion Federation clinics and others in the abortion clinic business make their money by selling abortions, birth control pills, pregnancy tests and treatments for sexually transmitted diseases. But in order to push sales to minors, NAF & Planned Parenthood abortion clinics have been ignoring child abuse reporting laws and promising to conceal statutory rape and ongoing child sexual molestation. We have over 800 tape recordings that show how Planned Parenthood and NAF abortion workers secure business from victims of statutory rape by undermining parental authority, encouraging children to lie and promising minors that their employees will...

    3-strikes measure loses ground in poll Sacramento -- A campaign blitz mounted in the past 10 days by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and law enforcement officials appears to have shifted opinion against an effort to amend the state's "three strikes" law, according to a statewide poll that had previously shown the initiative winning by a wide margin. In the first sign of what would be a stunning turnaround, Prop. 66 is in trouble with voters, according to Field Poll results released today that may be the most vivid illustration yet of Schwarzenegger's persuasive powers. In polling conducted this week, as the...

    Poll: Voters favor softening of '3 strikes' law By Howard Mintz Mercury News With just weeks to go before the election, California voters remain strongly in favor of a ballot measure that would soften the state's tough "three strikes, you're out" law, according to Field Poll results to be released today. A survey of voters earlier this month found 65 percent support Proposition 66, which would require that a defendant be convicted of a serious or violent felony to qualify for a "three strikes" sentence of 25 years to life. Right now, California is the only state that allows a...

    The "Gun-Free Schools Act of 1994" requires a one-year expulsion of any student who brings a firearm to any elementary or secondary school that receives federal funding. The Act allows "the chief administering officer of such local educational agency to modify such expulsion requirement for a student on a case-by-case basis."Many public schools have taken the liberty to expand this policy to include toy guns, food items being used as toy guns, and children pointing their fingers like guns. Most would agree that this is ludricious, with the exception of many schoolteachers and policymakers whose melodramatic paranoia of anything gun-like...

Authorities are looking into whether the conservative commentator violated the state's "doctor shopping" law by getting doctors to write him overlapping narcotic prescriptions and failing to tell them about each other. From March to September, Limbaugh picked up 1,733 hydrocodone pills, 90 OxyContin pills, 50 Xanax tablets and 40 pills of Kadian...

    A gang of boys from a West Seattle foster home, capping a spree of crime and delinquency, kicked Said Aba Sheikh into a coma for no better reason than he was riding a pink bike. Four years later, three of the teens are in prison. Aba Sheikh, a young refugee from Somalia, is permanently brain-damaged. The 20-year-old has no short-term memory, and his lungs fill with fluid, requiring frequent hospital stays. For a King County jury, difficult questions remain. Is the foster-care system to blame? And if so, should the state pay for Aba Sheikh's lifelong care, estimated at $20...
