    San Francisco (AP) -- Television bounty hunter Duane "Dog" Chapman, who had his reality show taken off the air after getting caught using a racial slur, will not be extradited to Mexico to face a pending appeal of kidnapping charges against him, a judge ruled Monday. The U.S. government had been trying to send Chapman, his son Leland Chapman and a third man to the resort town of Puerto Vallarta, where they were charged with kidnapping Andrew Luster, a Max Factor heir who had jumped a $1 million bond on charges that he drugged and raped three women. Luster's disappearance...

    Duane "Dog" Chapman is upset a $300,000 federal bond remains in place even though a Mexican judge has dismissed charges against him. The TV bounty hunter posted the bond and was freed after being arrested last September as he fought extradition to Mexico. He had been charged under Mexican law with "deprivation of liberty" for his 2003 capture of a fugitive convicted rapist in Mexico. Mexican Judge Jose Alberto Montes dismissed the charges last month, ruling the statute of limitations had expired.

    ITHACA--The outgoing Ithaca City Attorney has publicly called for the impeachment of President Bush, over reports that he authorized wiretapping for foreign intelligence purposes without judicial warrant following September 11.Writing in the Ithaca Journal, Marty Luster, a democrat, argues that the President and Vice President Cheney should be impeached, over what Luster characterizes as the administration's history of "lies," "secrecy" and "torture." As if the lies that took us to Iraq were not enough. As if the knowing use of bad intelligence wasn't enough. As if the ever- shifting justifications for this war were not enough. As if the...

    Gov. Schwarzenegger's chokehold on apossible re-election bid has loosened significantly in recent months, with only 39 percent of the state's voters saying they would support him in the 2006 gubernatorial race, according to a poll released today. The survey by the nonpartisan Field Institute also found that either of the GOP governor's Democratic challengers, state Treasurer Phil Angelides or state Controller Steve Westly, would narrowly beat Schwarzenegger if the general election were held today. Angelides holds an early lead over the possible field of Democratic candidates, including filmmakers Rob Reiner and Warren Beatty, pollsters found. Schwarzenegger, wildly popular with voters...

    A favorite song of mine is the instant classic by Fleetwood Mac, "Little Lies." This song repeatedly uses these two lines, "Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies." The first subject, as you might have guessed, is Hillary Clinton's new book, jocularly entitled "Living History." Two of the women in the street who made comments on TV about Hillary and her book came close to the truth. One said, "Well, that's her story." Another said, "She had to believe that." We are dealing, of course, with the only non-boring part of Hillary's tome, the few paragraphs about Bill and...

    <p>PUERTO VALLARTA, Mexico (AP) - Bounty hunters who captured cosmetics heir and convicted rapist Andrew Luster could spend four years in a Mexican jail for snatching him without alerting local authorities in a country that considers their profession little better than kidnapping. Charges of criminal association and illegal deprivation of liberty - which is similar to kidnapping without requesting a ransom - were filed Friday against Duane "Dog" Chapman and others.</p>

    Bits and PiecesLawyers on Parade: Max Factor heir Andrew Luster was captured in Mexico this week, after jumping bail during his trial for assault, rape and drug charges. He was convicted in absentia, and sentenced to 124 years in jail. Now his sleazoid lawyers have suggested that they will appeal his conviction on the grounds that the judge wrongly instructed the jurors that "fleeing can be taken as evidence of guilt." What chutzpah. These same lawyers got the judge to lower the bail on this criminal, so he could get out on bail with "electronic surveillance." That allowed him to...
