    Since a portion of the sexual encounters occured at an NBC facility per the London papers and it was an NBC show the questiosn that aren't being asked but should be are: What did NBC know, when did they know it, who at NBC knew, what did they do. Is this like the Saville case in England with the BBC? Of course the MSM isn't going to ask that question because they also may have someone who worked for them who might have rumors of the same kind of behivior The same questions need to be asked about the producers,...

    Ohio State University fired marching band director Jonathan Waters yesterday after a two-month investigation found that band leaders ignored a “sexualized” culture among students and didn’t take sexual-harassment training as recommended. The firing came two weeks after OSU leaders told Waters he could keep the job if he enacted a zero-tolerance policy for sexual harassment, his attorney, David Axelrod, said yesterday. The firing was a surprise to Waters, Axelrod said. “Jonathan has not decided precisely what action he will take,” Axelrod said. “He intends to defend his good name in one way or another.” Ohio State fired Waters, 38, after...

    The parents of Trayvon Martin and their lawyer met with Justice Department prosecutors and FBI agents at the U.S. attorney’s office in Miami Wednesday to discuss the status of a criminal civil-rights investigation into the fatal shooting of their teen-age son last year. The federal investigation, which was opened while George Zimmerman faced prosecution for the death of the 17-year-old, gained renewed interest last month after Zimmerman was acquitted in state court of Martin’s killing in a Sanford gated community. Prosecutors with the Justice Department’s criminal civil-rights section and FBI agents from Central Florida met with the late teen’s parents,...

The school system now claims that the response was an example of sexual assault and they are conducting an investigation. The mother of first grader,...

Scott Walker and his controversial reforms, not the least of which was Act 10, which curbed collective bargaining for teachers and many public employees in Wisconsin. In the ad, Lacroix says she is “not big on recalls,” and the Democratic Party’s push to recall Walker “feels a little like sour grapes — It’s you know, ‘We didn’t get our way and so we want to change the outcome.'”...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Despite her lawyer's claims, a woman who accused Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain of sexual harassment in the 1990s is reluctant to talk about the episode in public. A person close to the situation said Wednesday that no decision has been made about asking the National Restaurant Association to release the woman from a confidentiality agreement that was part of her settlement. Cain led the trade group while the woman worked there. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the accusations and says the fact that the incident has become public is...

    Rep. Anthony Weiner’s “Weinergate” scandal continues to present us with new bits of information, even after the Congressman held a rather lengthy press conference yesterday afternoon admitting guilt and expressing regret. Yesterday, Weiner shared that he had sent various flirtatious and/or revealing pictures and messages to six women over the course of three years, some while he was married. He insisted that he did not use government resources nor his time at work to send these. Now, TMZ has revealed that Weiner advised one of those women to lie about the nature of their online interactions. Weiner also offered the...

    Last week the economy tanked. Weekend talk shows were filled with everyone, including democrats, admitting that a 9.1 percent unemployment rate was anything from a major shortcoming to a huge crisis for the Obama administration. Over the weekend, Obama was on the ropes. Many commentators clearly stated that the economy was not advancing because of uncertain taxes, over-regulation, deadly high gas prices, and the prospect of heavily burdensome health requirements in the near future. Obama's insistence a few weeks back that taxes had to go up had created no confidence anyplace. Pundits were shaking their heads in disbelief. The chickens...

    HADLEY, Mass. - Lawyers for three teenage girls accused of participating in the bullying of a 15-year-old girl who committed suicide entered not guilty pleas Thursday on their behalf to charges including civil rights violations and criminal harassment. Ashley Longe, Sharon Chanon Velazquez and Flannery Mullins, all 16, did not appear in Franklin-Hampshire Juvenile Court for their arraignments. A judge ordered them to have no contact with the family of Phoebe Prince, a South Hadley High School freshman who hanged herself in January after what prosecutors called an "unrelenting" three-month bullying campaign by six teenagers. Prosecutors say Prince was targeted...

    An Illinois woman is charged with a hate crime for berating a Muslim woman about the Fort Hood shooting and then pulling at her headscarf. The charge could lead to three years in prison: justice or prosecutorial overkill? In the days after the Ft. Hood shooting, mosques around the country bolstered their security in anticipation of a backlash from Americans angry about a Muslim man alleged to have killed American soldiers on their own turf. Since then, only one alleged hate crime against Muslims has been directly tied to the Fort Hood rampage. Two days after the rampage by an...

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Another ethics complaint has been filed against Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, less than a week before her resignation. The complaint filed Monday alleges Palin violated ethics law by failing to submit complete gift disclosure forms in a timely manner. The complaint is the 19th ethics grievance against Palin, most filed after she was named the GOP vice presidential candidate last year. Most of the complaints have been dismissed. The latest is the sixth filed by fellow Republican Andree McLeod, an outspoken critic of the governor. 3 of the cases have been dismissed and two others, including...

It's the 18th ethics complaint filed against Palin, and the third since Palin announced her resignation July 3. In her resignation speech, Palin cited the complaints as taking a personal toll and crippling her ability to govern effectively. She officially steps down July 26.

    I live in Maine, and our Democrat controlled legislature and governor's office, against the will of the people, in their wisdom recently passed gay marriage. A "People's Veto" drive immediately started to get the gay marriage issue on the ballot, where it will almost certainly be overturned, even in the liberal mecca of Maine. 55,000 petition signatures of registered voters need to be collected in order to get the issue on the ballot, no small feat in a rural state like Maine. Well, I am hearing stories that when petitioners set up in front of a business, with their permission,...

    An attorney hired by the state personnel board has dismissed an ethics complaint claiming that Gov. Sarah Palin’s role in the political action committee SarahPAC poses a conflict with her official duties as governor. “I find that the complaint does not allege facts which constitute a violation of the Ethics Act. Therefore an investigation is not warranted. Pursuant to my authority…the complaint is hereby dismissed,” independent counsel Thomas Daniel concluded today. The complaint was brought by Anchorage resident Sondra Tompkins. The complaint says the governor abdicated her governor duties at a critical time -- the end of the legislative session,...

Sarah Palin’s life has changed in a myriad of ways since she became the Republican vice presidential nominee last August, but one aspect of her newfound fame has been more bracing than the others: Since entering the national spotlight, Palin has been inundated by ethics complaints, most of them filed against her after she agreed to become Sen. John McCain’s running mate. The complaints run the gamut, ranging from the governor’s use of state funds and staff to the workings of her political action committee and even to a jacket she wore to a snow machine race involving...

She should not be required to hire private counsel to defend any of these frivolous ethics complaints or her actions as our governor. Alaska's chief executive must never be publicly humiliated by incompetents who like to attack success. The Department of Law is obligated to defend her, each of her adviser state employees and her husband. It is unconscionable to allow politically motivated, incompetent ethics complaints to be publicly aired by the complainant. The...

She said one man reported he was offered 25 cents to vote for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

The unnamed executive, a 22-year-old from St Petersburg, had been hoping to become only the third woman in Russia's history to bring a successful sexual harassment action against a male employer. She alleged she had been locked out of her office after she refused to have intimate relations with her 47-year-old boss. "He always demanded that female workers signalled to him with their eyes...

Last month, despite Chinese urging, North Korea fired off a test salvo of seven missiles. Although the tests were generally considered to be a bid for international attention, they provided Japan with more domestic ammunition to change its constitutional bar on warfare as an instrument of national policy, a development China does not see as in its interests. Some suggestions of those cooling ties can be seen in this Chinese...

    Arab-Americans were the victims of more hate crimes and became more distrustful of law enforcement, particularly federal agencies, in the wake of the Sept. 11 terror attacks, according to a study released this month. The study, conducted by the Vera Institute of Justice, was launched in 2002 when researchers began looking at changes in policing tactics following the tragedies and how the changes affected people of Arab descent. The report comes on the heels of a Freedom of Information Request filed last month by Southern California Muslims who want to know if they've been spied on by the FBI. The...

It's a responsibility. Forgiveness may not take away our pain, but the act of offering it will keep us from being sucked into the downward spiral of resentment." But...

    September 04, 2005 On Friday, September 2, A Christian was once again cited for exercising his First Amendment Rights on a public sidewalk in Richmond, Virginia. For years the Richmond Police Department has misused its authority and abused law abiding citizens whose only crime is that they take seriously the Scriptural command to share the Gospel in the public square. This most recent act of harassment was once again perpetrated by Officer Howard Noyse, Badge# 7630. After two useless "investigations" into their own department, the RPD has done absolutely nothing to rein in this abusive officer. Every time we are...

    A Federal Agency Out of Control The reputation of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) has been less than stellar for many years. Agents seem to take great pleasure in harrassing law-abiding citizens while those citizens are exercising their rights to purchase and own legal products, i.e., guns. And the management of the agency appears to allow their agents to run out of control. BATFE may very well have a legitimate role to play in homeland security and law enforcement, that role does not give them the authority to trample our rights with impunity. I will not...

    HARRISBURG, Pa. - A jury on Tuesday rejected the claims of a former dispatcher who accused state police of sexual harassment for allegedly discussing sex on the job and using inappropriate gestures. Nancy Drew Suders, 61, had alleged that she was harassed by supervising troopers at the police station in McConnellsburg, where she worked for five months in 1998. She said the environment became so unpleasant she had to quit the $13-an-hour job. State police argued Suders panicked and exaggerated events after realizing she could not handle the job. Senior Deputy Attorney General Sarah C. Yerger called her a "fish...

    A military investigation has concluded that the Air Force's top lawyer engaged in improper relationships with more than a dozen women over the last decade, two Defense Department officials familiar with the findings said. While overseeing the work of 3,200 people, Maj. Gen. Thomas J. Fiscus, the Air Force judge advocate general, allegedly conducted affairs with enlisted women, officers and civilian employees in violation of military rules against fraternization, the officials said. Fiscus's pattern of behavior, one official said, was to seek to develop a relationship, but to back off quickly if his advances were rejected. Thus the few incidents...

    POSTED: 9:07 pm EDT October 24, 2004 UPDATED: 10:54 am EDT October 25, 2004 ORLANDO, Fla. -- There's outrage in Central Florida over early voting, and things are so bad in Orange County that Elections Supervisor Bill Cowles said he may move the early voting sites. The parking lot at the Alafaya Branch Library was so full that voters parked on the grass, and at least 100 people were lined up out the door to cast their vote, WESH NewsChannel 2 reported. What usually inspires such a crowd? Flu shots? Concert tickets? "What do you think about this? I think...

    At this precarious moment any distraction is a disaster for Kerry, even when it's Bill O'Reilly's sexual harassment problems. Gleeful Democrats who could have been spending useful hours signing up disenfranchised minority youths to vote instead spent whole mornings poring over the Fox moralist's phone-sex fantasies. The dazzling details could be found at the Web site where mortification lives: TheSmokingGun.com.

    Bill O'Reilly of "The O'Reilly Factor" fame might not know this, or even care for that matter, but the principal members of a Manhattan law firm defending him in a $60 million sexual harassment lawsuit have close ties to the Democratic Party and have been generous contributors to various candidates over the years, among them Sen. Chuck Schumer, Rep. Nita Lowey and Westchester County Executive Andrew Spano. This is mentioned here in the interest of full disclosure (call it the "O'Reisman Factor") since O'Reilly's legal team has oddly accused plaintiff Andrea Mackris' lawyer, Benedict P. Morelli, of being such an...
