    As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton routinely asked her maid to print out sensitive government e-mails and documents — including ones containing classified information — from her house in Washington, DC, e-mails and FBI memos show. But the housekeeper lacked the security clearance to handle such material. In fact, Marina Santos was called on so frequently to receive e-mails that she may hold the secrets to E-mailgate — if only the FBI and Congress would subpoena her and the equipment she used. Clinton entrusted far more than the care of her DC residence, known as Whitehaven, to Santos. She expected...

    President Bush's son, Jeb, is looking for a maid who's a legal U.S. resident. A maid who had worked at Bush's Miami home for three years was deported back to her native Honduras last week. Bush was out jogging when immigration agents showed up so his wife, Columba, had to deal with them. "She indicated, `Yes, she works here,' brought the lady out, and the two agents showed her the deportation order,said Richard Smith, director of the INS's Miami office."

    While presidential scion Jeb Bush was out jogging last week, Miami immigration officials deported his maid to her native Honduras. The Immigration and Naturalization Service used to send a deportation letter ahead of their agents. But a new law allows the agents to apprehend someone without any forewarning once all deportation appeals fail, said Richard Smith, director of the INS office in Miami. The new law, called the Immigration Act of 1990, was signed on Nov. 29 by Jeb`s father, President Bush. The maid, Maria Magdalena Romero, had used up all of her appeals, Smith said on Monday. Romero had...

They show attempts by friends and relatives to reach the...

'This is just another piece of evidence demonstrating what may be the ultimate outcome of this case,' Wigdor...

    A New York assemblyman says he wants the state to require hotels to provide their housekeepers with an emergency "panic button" that would help protect them from sexual assaults on the job. Assemblyman Rory Lancman, a Democrat from Queens, said he will introduce the bill Monday. The move comes a week after former International Monetary Fund Chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn was charged with sexually assaulting a Manhattan hotel maid. "We send hotel workers, housekeepers into rooms by themselves without any other staff, without any other security," Lancman said at a news conference Sunday outside the Sofitel Hotel, the site of Strauss-Kahn's...

    Now for a few humble thoughts about Dominique Strauss-Kahn and his recent brush with law and journalism, bearing in mind that it's possible indeed, maybe even likely, that he is guilty as the prosecutors charge: 1.) If he is such a womanizer and violent guy with women, why didn't he ever get charged until now? If he has a long history of sexual abuse, how can it have remained no more than gossip this long? France is a nation of vicious political rivalries. Why didn't his opponents get him years ago? 2.) In life, events tend to follow patterns. People...
