    CHP investigators have arrested a 40-year-old cable TV installer in connection to the series of sniper attacks on Inland Empire Freeways. For weeks now, someone has been shooting out the rear windows of SUVs on the freeway. On Thursday, CHP investigators said they caught the suspect red-handed as he shot at an Escalade as he drove along Interstate 15 at the 38 in Wrightwood. The suspect has been identified as William Frye of Hesperia. His gray Toyota Tundra has been impounded along with several weapons. The seven-week shooting spree damaged more than 70 vehicles. Frye now faces up to 70...

    Note: The following text is a quote: THE BRIEFING ROOM • THE BLOG FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4TH, 2009 AT 2:56 PM Ethics Update Posted by Norm Eisen We have previously reported six limited waivers that have been granted by the White House pursuant to the President’s Executive Order on Ethics for Executive Branch personnel – the strongest ethics standards in U.S. government history. Three of these waivers involved lobbying-related issues and three did not. We blogged about them here, here, and here. Several months ago, the public interest community suggested that we also make available in a central place limited waivers...

    President Obama has issued waivers allowing two appointees who were formally registered lobbyists to work for his administration. The waivers ensure the two appointees can work for the administration under his executive order on ethics, which was intended to reform the revolving door between K Street and the government. The waivers were provided for Jocelyn Frye, director of policy and projects in the Office of the First Lady, and Cecilia Munoz, director of intergovernmental affairs in the executive office of the president. The two waivers were announced on the White House blog Tuesday evening, which said the exceptions were granted...

    Sanders is ahead 51 to 40 among likely voters. His largest lead yet. (bolding mine) --- Sanders’ lead among Republicans is 82% to 11% for Frye.

This is a large jump among females, 5 points, for Sanders from the last survey. “Sanders has the momentum right now. Frye’s base of voters is solid, but the undecided appear to be breaking Sanders' way... Among labor...

    American Iranologist Wills to be Buried in Isfahan, Iran Apr. 18, 2005 Tehran, Apr. 18 (CHN) – Professor Richard Nelson Frye, a great American Iranologist, has asked in his will for his body to be transferred and buried in the land of Iran, in the historical city of Isfahan.

    San Diego Union Tribune ^ | 11.23.2004 | Greg Moran
    A judge refused yesterday to order the counting of ballots in the San Diego mayoral race in which voters wrote in the name of Councilwoman Donna Frye but neglected to fill in a small oval-shaped bubble next to it. The decision by retired Judge Eric Helgesen was a crucial victory in a post-election legal battle for Mayor Dick Murphy, who has claimed victory after finishing with 2,205 more votes than Frye in results announced Friday. The judge ruled against the League of Women Voters of San Diego and two Frye supporters who contended there are thousands of such ballots the...

    The ongoing pension crisis, afflicting California cities and counties that have granted excessively generous retirement benefits to public-employee union members, will no doubt shake up the political landscape at some point. An early sign comes from San Diego, where a liberal environmental activist may become the next mayor of the state's second largest city. Absentee ballot counting is still going on, and Donna Frye, who ran as a write-in candidate, holds a slim lead over Mayor Dick Murphy. Opponents of Frye have filed two lawsuits trying to stop her from winning the race based on the contention that the city's...

    Bakersfield Californian ^ | 11/11/04 | AP - San Diego
    SAN DIEGO (AP) - The presiding judge of the San Diego Superior Court recused all 124 judges on the bench from hearing a lawsuit attempting to block write-in candidate Councilwoman Donna Frye from becoming mayor. Judge John Einhorn said he made the decision Wednesday because one of Frye's election rivals, incumbent Mayor Dick Murphy, was a judge for 15 years before he was elected mayor in 2000. Several judges have contributed to Murphy's campaigns, and Einhorn wanted to avoid any appearance of favoritism. Einhorn arranged with California Supreme Court Chief Justice Ronald George to have the case heard by Charles...
