    Former D.C. Congressman Walter Fauntroy, 83, is back in the U.S. after several years absence and, according to his attorney, he is in jail in Loudoun County, Va. Attorney Johnny Barnes said Fauntroy was arrested at Dulles Airport in Loudoun County Monday morning on his return from Dubai on an "unexpected" warrant from Prince George's County, Md. It involved Fauntroy's failure to appear in a court case in 2011 on allegations of fraud involving a 2009 Obama inauguration party that never took place.

    The American Humanist Association filed a lawsuit last week in federal court in Maryland calling for the removal of Bladensburg’s 40-foot Memorial Peace Cross, which honors men from Prince George’s County who died during World War I.

The cross was dedicated in 1925. ...One of the individual plaintiffs, Steven Lowe of Washington, contends that the cross "associates a Christian religious symbol with the state and gives the impression that the state supports and approves of...

    In between bowls of chicken poodle soup and deciding to provide air cover for al-Qaeda in Syria, our Dear Leader, Barack Hussein Obama, found time to meet with mayors from our crumbling major cities.

    Former Prince George’s County Councilwoman Leslie E. Johnson, who followed her husband’s ambitions into politics last year, will now follow in his footsteps to prison. Federal Judge Peter J. Messitte sentenced Johnson Friday to 12 months and one day in prison, despite arguments by her defense attorneys that her sentence should be downgraded to probation only. “Mrs. Johnson, I regret to say you are not an innocent spouse, you are a complicit spouse,” Judge Messitte said. “You knew at least along the way what he was doing. You knew the money was tainted.” Johnson also must serve two years under...

    Thieves have been cleaning up stealing laundry detergent from stores in Prince George’s County, Md., but special investigators are making progress. A special crime squad has made five arrests and is looking for 15 other suspects. “Boosters” will load shopping carts with laundry detergent and then race out of the store to their cars to make a getaway. One Safeway store was losing about $15,000 per month in Tide alone. Surveillance video showed a man stealing Tide from a Wegman’s, police said. Forty minutes later, with police watching, that man’s accomplice sold the Tide at a nail salon. Police seized...

    It's an axiom known by every lawyer and judge in every courthouse in the land: A man who represents himself in court has a fool for a client. Try telling that to Harold J. Stewart. Last month, Stewart, a 42-year-old high school dropout, defended himself in a murder case in Prince George's County, where he was accused of beating a sleeping man to death with a baseball bat. The trial lasted three days. Stewart called no witnesses. The jury deliberated less than an hour. The verdict: Not guilty of first-degree murder. Not guilty of second-degree murder. "Everybody told me I...
