  • Plan to hire 'abortion doctors' at Rome hospital sparks outcry [Italy]

    A controversial move by a Rome hospital to hire two specialist abortion doctors — because the majority of Italian doctors refuse to carry out the procedure — has caused an outcry. On Thursday, the president of Rome’s order of physicians, Giuseppe Lavra, asked Lazio’s regional governor to repeal the "unjust and discriminatory" call for two pro-abortion gynecologists. The governor, Nicola Zingaretti, had planned for the two doctors to be hired at Rome’s San Camillo hospital — one of the largest in the capital — where they would be tasked specifically with carrying out abortions. Zingaretti wrote in his blog that...
  • Mrs. Clinton Portrays Lazio as Bully and Derides His Tax Plan

    The New York Times ^ | 9/19/2000 | Dean E. Murphy
    At ease in a Manhattan hotel ballroom filled mostly with Democratic women, Hillary Rodham Clinton yesterday made a broad appeal for women to support her Senate campaign, casting her Republican opponent, Representative Rick A. Lazio, as a bully in last week's debate and dismissing his tax plan as misleading and mathematically unsound. (snip) Most pointedly, however, Mrs. Clinton exploited an opportunity before a friendly audience of women to make a concerted attack on Mr. Lazio's debate tactics. Many supporters of Mrs. Clinton said they found Mr. Lazio to be pushy and disrespectful during the debate in Buffalo -- bullying her...

    Neanderthal man arrived on the Italian peninsular some 100,000 years earlier than previously thought, according to a study set to be published this month. The discovery was made after researchers analyzed radioactive deposits that were found in sediments present inside two Neanderthal skulls unearthed in a gravel pit Saccopastore, Lazio, in the 1930s. The site of the dig is now occupied by an eastern section of Rome's ring road. "The results of our studies show that the Saccopastore remains are 100,000 years older than previously thought -- and push back the arrival of Neanderthal man in Italy to 250,000 years...
  • Buried but found: First images of a lost Roman town

    Originally founded as a Roman colony in the 4th century BCE, the site of Interamna Lirenas lies in the Liri Valley in Southern Lazio, about 50 miles south of Rome itself. After it was abandoned around the year 500 CE, it was scavenged for building materials and, over time, its remains were completely lost from view. Today, the site is an uninterrupted stretch of farmland, with no recognisable archaeological features. Now, researchers have successfully produced the first images of the ancient site, using geophysical methods that allowed them to look beneath the surface of the earth and map the layout...

    NEW YORK – Conservative Party candidate Rick Lazio on Monday withdrew from the race for governor, a decision that helps the tea party candidate who beat Lazio in the Republican primary. Lazio told The Associated Press that he wants to continue to influence the race and bring a workable job-creation program into a contest he says has devolved into name-calling between Republican Carl Paladino and Democrat Andrew Cuomo.

Another Lazio source said he also expected him to withdraw. “Rick Lazio alway does the right thing,” the second source said, adding he wasn’t told directly by Lazio.

    The campaign for governor of New York was shaken up this week by the release of polls that offered vastly different impressions of the race more than six weeks before Election Day. On Wednesday, a poll by Quinnipiac University suggested a close race. Andrew M. Cuomo, the Democratic candidate, was supported by 49 percent of 751 likely voters, while the Republican, Carl P. Paladino, was backed by 43 percent. The next day, Siena College released a poll of 801 registered voters showing Mr. Cuomo with a 33-point lead over Mr. Paladino, 57 percent to 24 percent. That poll, unlike the...

    What a difference a day makes. A new Siena College poll released Thursday shows Andrew Cuomo with a commanding lead in the governor's race over maverick GOP opponent Carl Paladino a day after a separate poll claimed the race had narrowed dramatically. Cuomo leads Paladino by a 57% to 24% margin among registered voters, with Conservative party candidate Rick Lazio bringing up the rear at 8%. The poll is a marked difference than a Quinnipiac survey of likely voters released Wednesday that seemed to shake up the race. That poll had Cuomo ahead of Paladino by a slim 49% to...
  • What's powering Paladino: He's not a joke - he's part of a Tea Party movement fueled by raw anger

    Already the pundits, political experts and commentators have written off Carl Paladino as a serious gubernatorial candidate. In today's political environment, that's a mistake. While it's true that Attorney General Andrew Cuomo is the frontrunner and likely winner of the New York gubernatorial race (the Democrat leads by 58% to 29% in the latest Rasmussen Reports poll), there is reason to believe that Paladino could make this a somewhat closer election than the political elites expect. Here's why: The Tea Party movement, which propelled Paladino's primary victory, is real and vastly underrated as an electoral force. That's just as true...

    This is one aspect of yesterday's results I dont see any one talking about Even Karl Rove was backed into a corner and does not know how to handle it NO ONE predicted these results. Usually after the election we look at the pollsters to see who was closest- no one was even close. In New York the polls had Carl Paladino tied with Lazio on Monday- on Tuesday Paladino beat him by OVER 40 PERCENT! 72% to 27% That’s how bad these polls were.

    Well, New York Republicans went out and got themselves an angry man. They may come to regret it. That's the upshot of yesterday's gubernatorial primary, in which Carl Paladino, multimillionaire developer from Buffalo, pretty much expelled the GOP establishment's candidate, ex-Rep. Rick Lazio, from public life. Actually, Lazio can be said to have lost this race far more than Paladino won. To say the former Long Island legislator kept a low profile is putting it mildly: Lazio ran as the Invisible Man -- refusing to debate, speaking in platitudes and generally just boring folks to tears. Even his notoriously uninspired...

The folks working there were unprepared to give me an affadavit ballot -- there were none for any of the political parties -- so they improvised by using the form intended for the scanner.

    Raleigh, N.C. – It looks like there’s a real possibility of a major upset in the New York Senate primary on Tuesday night, with insurgent conservative Carl Paladino leading longtime establishmen GOP pick Rick Lazio 47-44. That 3 point lead is well within the poll’s margin of error. If Lazio is indeed defeated Tuesday night it will be yet another sign that conservatives have a strangle hold on the Republican Party and moderates may or may not be welcome anymore.

    (ALBANY, NY) - Dozens of New York Tea Party leaders drove for hours Sunday from across the state to descend on Albany and announce their support for the candidacy of Carl Paladino, a Republican gubernatorial candidate in Tuesday's New York primary. With just 48 hours to go in Paladino's dead-heat battle with lobbyist Rick Lazio, the leaders, directly representing more than 10,000 activists, committed to get out the vote for Paladino on Tuesday. "From the very beginning of my candidacy, I have been humbled by the support I received from the Tea Party movement across New York," said Paladino. "Now...
