    A Democratic lawmaker posted a video of herself dancing to Drake's recently-released song "In My Feelings" on Twitter Friday, urging the song's mysterious "Keke" to vote in the upcoming November midterms. Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-Ohio) posted the half-minute video Friday afternoon, writing that the Trump administration's policies had her and other Americans "in my feelings." "I don't know who Keke is but I want her to vote next November because this @WhiteHouse has me and many other Americans "in my feelings". #KekeMustVote #InMyFeelingsChallenge," Beatty wrote in the post accompanying the video, in which she steps out of a white car...

    If you were thinking of challenging President Trump in the Republican primary in 2020, wouldn't you want to check with God first to see what he thought about it? That's John Kasich's position. When asked if he were going to challenge the President in 2020, Kasich said, "My future is in some degree in the hands of the Lord. And I don't know where he's going to direct me."

    She got off. Ohio prosecutors on Thursday threw out charges against porn star Stormy Daniels, a day after she was arrested for allegedly rubbing undercover cops’ faces into her breasts while performing at a strip club. They say Daniels is not subject to a state law that prohibits anyone who isn’t a family member from touching a nude dancer, because it only applies to someone who “regularly” appears at a jiggle joint — and she was a guest, according to court papers tweeted out by her lawyer Michael Avenatti. Columbus Police said in a statement Thursday that the 39-year-old “Good...

    A former Ohio State University wrestler who came forward with allegations last week that a doctor sexually abused athletes on the team sought compensation from the school last month, according to a copy of an email obtained by The Hill. In an email sent to both OSU and the law firm conducting an independent investigation, former OSU wrestler Mike DiSabato said he had no intention of causing a “public relations nightmare” but warned that he would “pursue other avenues toward resolution” if a meeting was not set up with university representatives to discuss a potential settlement for the victims.

    When I read the actual stories under those headlines, my reaction turned from dread to outrage. Jim Jordan isn’t being accused; he’s being railroaded. (snip) -- Like many Americans, when I saw last week’s headlines about my friend, U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), I couldn’t believe them. The accusations did not describe the man of character and courage I’ve known for more than a decade. When I read the actual stories under those headlines, my reaction turned from dread to outrage. Jordan isn’t being accused; he’s being railroaded. Jordan, as you may know, was a two-time NCAA Division I national...

    Mike Davis didn't think Donald Trump could get elected. Davis is the kind of Republican who backed Ohio governor John Kasich in the 2016 primaries, the kind of Republican who subscribes to the Wall Street Journal. Davis, 64, is the former mayor of Dunwoody, Ga., a small city in the state's 6th Congressional District, one of the most highly-educated districts in the country. Ultimately Davis voted for Trump, mainly because he was worried about the tilt of the Supreme Court. With the nomination of another conservative justice expected on Monday, following the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch in 2017 and a...

In a phone interview on Monday, former Ohio State University head wrestling coach Russ Hellickson vehemently denied that he or Jordan had ever seen or been told that Dr. Richard Strauss was molesting or sexually assaulting OSU wrestlers during the 1980s and 90s. “I am frankly pissed off at what they are doing to Jim Jordan.

    Rep. Jim Renacci and an affiliated group raised more than $2 million during the most recent fundraising quarter in his bid for the U.S. Senate, Renacci's campaign announced Monday. Renacci's campaign did not immediately offer a breakdown of how much of the $2 million was raised by his campaign committee, versus how much was raised by the affiliate, which faces greater restrictions on how the money can be spent. It also did not share how much money Renacci has on hand, a key political fundraising metric. However, the campaign did specify that the $2 million haul did not include any...

None of us saw or heard of abuse of OSU wrestlers. The well-being of student-athletes was all of our concern. If we had heard of any...

    Two former Ohio State University wrestlers are accusing Rep. Jim Jordan of ignoring sexual misconduct by a university physician more than two decades ago when he was an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State. There’s no claim that Jordan engaged in such misconduct, the claim is that he knew about, but failed to take action to stop, sexual harassment by a team doctor. * * * In Jordan’s case, the two accusers are highly suspect. According to Chuck Ross at the Daily Caller, one of them, Dunyasha Yetts, served prison time for a $1.8 million fraud scheme that involved bilking...

    FASTER Colorado's active shooter training for teachers. Last week I went through the training many of the teachers who are authorized to carry a gun in Colorado schools go through. In the wake of the devastating school shootings in Parkland, Fla., and Santa Fe, Tex., many different solutions have been proposed for how to stop or at least curb the violence inflicted by active shooters. Among the most prominent solutions—thanks in large part to President Trump's advocacy—is arming teachers. Most, however, don't understand how arming teachers works in person or that a number of states already allow certain teachers to...

    Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) on Tuesday fiercely denied allegations that he failed to stop a sports physician from sexually abusing student athletes at Ohio State University when he was a wrestling coach there. Jordan told Politico in an interview that he would have intervened had he known about the doctor's alleged behavior. "It’s not true," Jordan told Politico. "I never knew about any type of abuse. If I did, I would have done something about it. And look, if there are people who are abused, then that’s terrible and we want justice to happen." Three former wrestlers at OSU told...
