    He’ll have a hard time using the Weiner defense. A man convicted of downloading child pornography in Washington State is citing Anthony Weiner in a desperate attempt to receive a lighter jail sentence. A lawyer for Douglas Blouin, 51, wrote a letter to the judge in Seattle imploring him to take Anthony Weiner’s sexting case into consideration when handing down a prison sentence to his client, according to KOMO News. “Congressman Anthony Weiner was recently sentenced to 21 months in custody after he convinced a 15-year-old to produce child pornography,” the lawyer wrote.

    ALBANY — Disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner will reportedly be spending his prison time at a federal medical center in northern Massachusetts. Weiner, who was sentenced in September to 21 months in prison, has been assigned to the Federal Medical Center, Devens, in Ayer, Massachusetts, City & State reported. The medical center, located about an hour’s drive northwest of Boston, is one of the few federal lockups that offer residential treatment programs for sex offenders, according to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons website.

    Judging from the color of his duds, Anthony Weiner is already preparing for prison life. The disgraced ex-pol was spotted Monday on a downtown 4 train in an orange v-neck sweater and rust-colored slacks with hipster-style sneakers. He was wearing ear buds attached to his phone and seemed solemn.

    In the video I posted, protesters, covered in masks, pepper sprayed what I believe could've been attendees to the speech tonight. What happened was horrible - they were sprayed, pinned up against the metal barricades while protesters struck them in the back and on their heads with wood sticks. The man in the orange bill hat was me - they were crying to get them to stop and to help them get out. I jumped the barricades and pulled them out. One of these people, in the first picture was a woman who was being struck continuously by a male...

    Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit has not been on the post long, but already has determined that the policy of demolishing the homes of murderous Arab terrorists should be done away with in cases where the families of the terrorist hand them over. Mandelblit's decision comes with the goal of passing a message that the demolition is not a punishment but rather a deterrent step, as determined by the courts on numerous occasions, reports Channel 2 on Tuesday night. According to the report, due to Mandelblit's decision the planned wave of demolitions of terrorists' homes on Monday night did not include...

    **SNIP** "I think Hillary Clinton, for the good of the country, should step down and let this FBI investigation play out," Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn (Ret.) told The Daily Caller. Flynn led the DIA from July 2012 until August 2014. He said anyone who compromised intelligence at this level of classification has no business running for president. The documents "had to be moved off electronically or removed out of the secure site physically, then it had to be put onto an unclassified email system," Flynn said. "Someone who does this is completely irresponsible, but totally unaccountable and shows a...

    Rep. Alan Grayson (D., Fla.), known as one of the most outspoken members of Congress, met with a congressional ethics investigator Wednesday and would not discuss the meeting when questioned by Politico. Grayson has come under fire in recent months by the media and watchdog groups for operating hedge funds bearing his name, actions that are prohibited by sitting members of Congress. Additionally, on the same day the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) filed an ethics complaint against Grayson, he made a $15,000 payment to a law firm using funds from his campaign, which he also refuses to...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton said Sunday that she could not fully explain the discovery of a string of work emails sent on her personal account earlier in her tenure as secretary of state than she has said she first began using that address. But she said she hoped voters would look past what she called the “drip, drip, drip” of the furor over her emails. “There was a transition period. You know, I wasn’t that focused on my email,” Mrs. Clinton said on “Meet the Press,” when asked about emails sent from her personal account in her first two months after...

    American Thinker ^ | 9/25/15 | Mark J. Fitzgibbons
    **SNIP** To know NASCO is to understand why Mr. Jones’ 2007 letter to Lois Lerner, in which he discusses a “sentiment” for charities to become more transparent, is so typical of NASCO’s hypocrisy about transparency, honesty and ethics. Their annual conference was once completely closed off from representatives of nonprofit organizations because NASCO did not like being criticized for their questionable and overbearing tactics. Indeed, in his 2007 letter to Ms. Lerner, Jones criticizes “’push back’ from the nonprofit sector.” These bureaucrats do not like criticism from those they regulate, and they are effective at chastening their critics. Jones also...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Representative John Boehner, the top Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives, plans to announce a new investigation this week into Hillary Clinton’s use of email when she led the State Department, ABC News reported on Sunday. ABC's "This Week" program said top Republicans had briefed it about Boehner's plans, but did not give details. Clinton, expected to launch her campaign soon for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, has faced a storm of criticism over her email habits. She used a personal email address instead of a government one, as well as a personal server, during...

    ALBANY — Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver’s arrest was a blow to the gut of the progressive activists who viewed the powerful Manhattan Democrat as their champion. Advocates on issues ranging from rent control to abortion rights have been left wondering whether Silver can still wield the clout they’ve come to expect over two decades. “I am very much concerned,” said Michael McKee, treasurer of the Tenants Political Action Committee. “He is the only one of the three men in a room who would be inclined to hold out for something better on rent regulations,” McKee said. Silver’s arrest on bribery...

    Prosecutors and defense attorneys agreed at a federal court hearing Thursday that the unwieldy criminal case against suspended state Sen. Leland Yee, Chinatown association leader Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow and 27 others should be split up before trial. **SNIP** The hearing before U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer came two weeks after the U.S. attorney for the Northern District of California filed a new indictment in the case, adding violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act against Yee and his former fundraiser, Keith Jackson.

    WASHINGTON -- Imprisoned former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.’s projected release date is now Sept. 20, 2015, more than three months earlier than listed previously, federal officials confirmed Monday. In another development, Jackson has paid the $550,000 he owed the U.S. government over his misuse of campaign funds, according to a court filing. There is no connection between Jackson’s payment and his new projected release date, according to the Bureau of Prisons. “Financial obligations and release dates are unrelated,” said prisons spokesman Chris Burke.

    A small part of more than $800,000 that was parked in campaign accounts controlled by indicted or convicted California lawmakers is making its way back to contributors, but more than half a million dollars remains missing.. At the time of his arrest on bribery and corruption charges in March, Sen. Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) had $134,000 cash in his secretary of state campaign account and had weeks earlier sent more than $518,000 to a Los Angeles media agency for future campaign commercials. Campaign finance reports filed with the state by Thursday's reporting deadline show the indicted lawmaker had reduced that...

    An unhinged Brooklyn man accused of punching seven women — including a 78-year-old — in brutal “knockout” attacks last year told cops he attacked six of them in “self-defense,” and hit another woman because she almost made him spill his Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, court papers revealed Wednesday. Barry Baldwin, 35, hit the women in seven separate attacks in Canarsie and Midwood between Nov. 7 and Dec. 27, court papers state. His Jan. 3 arrest came in the midst of a slew of possible “knockout game” attacks — in which innocent people are sucker-punched by thrill-seeking punks — including multiple attacks...

    Former Mayor Ray Nagin's federal trial on 21 public corruption charges was postponed again last week — for the third time. The former mayor is now set to stand trial on Monday, Jan. 27, 2014. If and when Nagin does go to trial — or if he pleads to a reduced charge — it will be the final chapter of Hurricane Katrina's political arc. Guilty or innocent, Nagin's fate will bring closure to a city that arguably suffered as much after the storm as during it, thanks in large measure to the former mayor's failure to implement a recovery program...

    WASHINGTON -- Congressman-turned-convicted-felon Jesse Jackson Jr. will sell his town house in the nation’s capital to help pay a $750,000 forfeiture he owes, according to a court filing today. Jackson, 48, a Chicago Democrat who quit Congress last November, was sentenced to two and a half years in prison on Aug. 14 after using $750,000 in campaign cash on a Rolex watch, furs, vacations, celebrity memorabilia, mounted elk heads and other whims. He has not yet reported to prison, but is expected to do so shortly, a federal Bureau of Prisons official said.

    CHICAGO — A federal judge rejected an impassioned plea from a television pitchman for his freedom on Tuesday, ordering U.S. Marshals to lock up Kevin Trudeau for failing to pay a $37 million civil judgment. The visibly exasperated judge had already ordered that Trudeau be jailed during a hearing in Chicago when Trudeau stood up and asked if he could address the court. The Federal Trade Commission won the judgment after accusing Trudeau of hoodwinking viewers about his weight-loss books. "There are no more assets to turn over, your honor," the 50-year-old Trudeau insisted during a 10-minute plea, at times...

    The Holder DOJ stopped at nothing to convict five New Orleans police officers.In a shocking case of “grotesque” misconduct by federal prosecutors, a federal judge in Louisiana has ordered a new trial for five New Orleans police officers convicted for a shooting on the Danziger Bridge on September 4, 2005 — in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina — and for a subsequent cover-up. This is another black eye for the Holder Justice Department that the media have barely covered. Participating in the misconduct that the judge said had created an “online 21st-century carnival atmosphere” was Karla Dobinski, a lawyer in...
