    SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A late-night confession by Utah's House majority leader about sitting nude in a hot tub with a minor 25 years ago has shocked this conservative state's political establishment but has not prompted calls from party leaders for him to resign. Rep. Kevin Garn, 55, acknowledged the indiscretion late Thursday immediately after the Legislature adjourned for the session. He said he paid the woman, Cheryl Maher, now 40, $150,000 to keep quiet about the episode when he unsuccessfully ran for Congress in 2002.

    They were part of a distinctive window display designed to attract shoppers through the doors of chic high street chain All Saints. But instead, the eight headless black dummies, which are suspended from silver chains, have caused a storm of protest from race campaigners. Equality groups claim the mannequins resemble the Ku Klux Klan lynchings which terrorised America's Deep South. And they were so incensed that they complained to police - who launched a probe and sent officers round to the shop to investigate. The hanging mannequins are used at the all the chain's 40 stores around Britain but have...

    Just the Truth? Why the Republicans Have Changed Their Tune Over the years, Republicans have held hearings on Bill Clinton’s Christmas card list and called for answers on Socks the Cat’s fan mail. Yet they continue to stonewall attempts to question key players in the scandal surrounding the apparently politically-motivated firing of eight U.S. Attorneys. Despite emails showing that top White House advisers such as Harriet Miers and Karl Rove were involved in the decision, the White House has cited executive privilege and placed restrictions on their cooperation with Congress such as demanding closed-door hearings with no transcripts and even...

    The mantra among the liberals is that the Mark Foley scandal is strictly a Republican problem. Unlike Democrat Congressman Gerry Studds who actually had sex with a page and was re-elected to office several times without a single Democrat demanding that he resign, Foley was forced to resign from office the moment his sicko IM messages became known. However, that was not enough for Democrats. Now they want to know why the Republican House leadership didn't do something earlier when they found out about Foley's messages. See, what the Democrats are doing is trying to confuse the low key...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Sen. Rick Santorum says he "meant no offense" by referring to Adolf Hitler while defending the GOP's right to ban judicial filibusters as Senate leaders prepared to start a countdown Friday to a vote over whether to stop minority senators from blocking President Bush's judicial nominees. "Referencing Hitler was meant to dramatize the principle of an argument, not to characterize my Democratic colleagues," Santorum, the No. 3 Republican in the GOP leadership in the Senate, said of his remarks Thursday.Passions have been running high as senators argue over whether Republicans should allow the out-of-power Democrats to use...
