Officers pinged his cell phone and found his body next to his car.The lawmaker’s death comes after the Kentucky Center for Investigative reporting published an expose Monday detailing an allegation that Johnson had...

    Talk show legend Larry King has been accused of groping an ex-wife of singer Eddie Fisher on two separate occasions, according to a report Monday. Terry Richard told the Daily Mail on Monday that the now-84-year-old Larry King Now and Politicking host groped her in 2005 and 2006, with both alleged incidents coming during baseball awards dinners at Universal Studios in Los Angeles. Richard, 63, had reportedly been working as a photographer for the local Tolucan Times when she saw King, whom she had met some months before, at the 2005 dinner. The photographer had reportedly wanted a photograph of...

    It’s not the first time I’ve heard it, but after reading this op-ed from Jay Kaganoff in the Washington Post, I’m guessing we’ll be seeing more of it. After the cacophony of calls for Hollywood moguls and media figures to lose their jobs and elected officials to resign or be removed following allegations of sexual assault and harassment, it was inevitable that Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas’ name would eventually come up. Kaganoff titles his piece, Fellow conservatives, it’s time to call on Clarence Thomas to resign. The author makes at least a partially convincing case, depending on where...

    The Office of House Employment Counsel brokered a settlement in 2006 over allegations that Rep. Gregory Meeks fired a staffer in retaliation for reporting that she was sexually assaulted at a business tied to a campaign contributor, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned. Andrea Payne, then a congressional aide in the New York Democrat’s Queens office, filed a complaint with the Office of Compliance, and Meeks fired her weeks later. He admitted that Payne’s termination did not have to do with the quality of her work, according to her lawsuit.

    It is remarkable to note that as Congress wrestles with enormously significant legislative proposals that the biggest story in Washington (or any place else) remains the “reckoning” over workplace sexual harassment. Now, we know that part of this is prurient. Talking about sexual conduct, even in a negative context, is always going to be more interesting than corporate tax rates. But the other, more significant part of all this is that the direction and work of the government very much depends on how these matters play out and who is the next to fall. Democrats are currently bowing to reality...

    Matt Lauer, the disgraced former anchor of NBC's "Today" show who was fired Wednesday for “inappropriate sexual behavior,” once summoned a married female employee to his office, locked the door and sexually assaulted her until she passed out, the New York Times reported after interviewing the accuser. The alleged incident occurred in 2001. The woman, who was not named in the report, told the Times that she was in her 40s at the time. According to the report, Lauer was behind his desk and she took a seat in the office. She said he locked the door from a button...

    It turns out that the sexual assault charges against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein may be just the tip of the iceberg in Hollywood.  The Beverly Hills police say they are currently investigating twelve cases of sexual assault against people in the entertainment industry. Los Angeles Times: Beverly Hills police declined to provide specifics of the allegations, saying the agency wanted to "maintain the integrity of these investigations." "The Beverly Hills Police Department is working in conjunction with the District Attorney's Task Force on these cases. We place a high priority on crimes against persons cases," Police Chief Sandra Spagnoli...

    Like many celebrities on Thursday, Uma Thurman wished her fans a happy Thanksgiving on social media. But the Kill Bill star also used the post to send a strong message to Harvey Weinstein and his “wicked conspirators.” The Oscar-nominated actress, who starred in the Weinstein-produced films Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill, had previously said she needed to wait to “feel less angry” before commenting on the ever-growing list of sexual misconduct accusations leveled at the disgraced mogul. And now, she has sent a very Bride-like message his way. “I am grateful today, to be alive, for all those I love, and...

    The attorney for Democratic Michigan Rep. John Conyers, who is accused of continuously sexually harassing his female staffers, defended Conyers by indicating that there are allegations against "many members" of the House and Senate. [Snip] "[Conyers' attorney] acknowledged that while these allegations are serious, they are simply allegations," the statement said. "If people were required to resign over allegations, a lot of people would be out of work in this country including many members of the House, Senate and even the president." The statement said that Conyers has "no plans to resign" despite calls for him to do so.

    It has not been a good week for serial groper Al Franken. The Democratic senator from Minnesota is facing multiple bombshell accusations of unwanted groping and sexual misconduct against female reporters and constituents alike. Last week, Franken was accused of groping and kissing broadcaster Leeann Tweeden while on an overseas trip with her. An image of the groping was then released. Franken issued an apology after the incident, saying: “I certainly don’t remember the rehearsal for the skit in the same way, but I send my sincerest apologies to Leeann. As to the photo, it was clearly intended to be...

    Sen. Amy Klobuchar will help champion a sexual assault bill that was originally introduced by Sen. Al Franken. The change comes after a Los Angeles radio anchor said Franken forcibly kissed her during a 2006 USO tour. Leeann Tweeden also said Franken posed for a photo with his hand on her breasts as she slept. Abby Honold, a sexual assault survivor and advocate, announced Saturday that Klobuchar's office would help champion the bill. "Happy to announce that my legislation for sexual assault victims will be championed by @amyklobuchar's office," Honold's tweet read. Klobuchar's office confirmed the senator planned to sponsor...

    Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton refused to speculate about what the Senate should do if Roy Moore wins his Senate race in Alabama after being accused of sexually harassing and assaulting multiple women. Cotton, a Republican, said it’s up to the people of Alabama to decide if that’s the kind of man they want representing them in the Senate. “As far as Roy Moore goes, I'm not going to speculate about what may happen should he win. We're three weeks out from the election, he made it pretty clear this week that he's not going to step aside … it’s up...

    Los Angeles police are investigating almost two dozen cases of alleged criminal sexual misconduct connected to multiple people within the entertainment industry, a senior department official told NBC News. [Snip] Allegations span from misdemeanor sexual battery to felony rape, and in many cases, there are multiple complaints lodged against the same individual, the official said. With calls from victims continuing to roll in, the number of investigations is expected to rise. [Snip] The LAPD has also collected nearly 30 "courtesy reports" that take a victim's statement before referring the case to law enforcement agencies in other parts of the country...

    Is it even humanly possible to be sleazier and more disgusting than the Harvey Weinsteins of Hollywood? Well, sadly, and clearly...yes. There are politicians. The rush of women coming forward to accuse powerful men of sexual assaults and harassments has hit our nation’s political class like Al Gore’s much-prophesied rising sea level, but all in one wave. Especially in Washington, where just this week a photo surfaced of Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) groping a sleeping Leeann Tweeden, who accused the senator of more misbehavior when she was awake, and two congresswomen announced that two unnamed congressmen — a Democrat and...

    A former Secret Service agent assigned to the Vice President Joe Biden residence claims that the Service often had to protect female agents from him. Speaking on the condition of anonymity, the agent asserted that, “We had to cancel the VP Christmas get together at the Vice President’s house because Biden would grope all of our wives and girlfriend’s asses.” The annual party was for agents and Navy personnel who were tasked with protecting the Biden family. “He would mess with every single woman or teen. It was horrible,” the agent said. According to the source, a Secret Service agent...

    http://canadafreepress.com/images/uploads/cover111517.jpg ‘Dem “Dirty Old Men” Anthony Weiner is in the slammer for exposing his genitals via Internet photos, but congressmen who expose their genitals and grab private parts—on the House floor—not only get away with it but get the privilege of going unnamed. Genital-exposing politicians (GEP, for short) are said to come from both the Democrat and Republican parties, and, incredibly find protection in the system as it stands.

    Complete Headline: Video: Joe Biden Repeatedly Grinds His Crotch on 6-Year-Old Daughter of Kelly Ayotte at 2011 Senate Ceremony Vice President Joe Biden apparently is an experienced child molester. Videos of Biden fondling several girls at the 2015 ceremonial Senate swearing-in session were reported earlier Monday by The Gateway Pundit. Video from the January 5, 2011 ceremonial swearing-in of Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) shows the then 68-year-old Biden maneuvering to get Ayotte’s six-year-old daughter Kate to stand next to him so he could continuously touch her and repeatedly grind his crotch on her.

    Sexual harassment/misconduct charges have exploded across the landscape leaving no segment of society untouched: Hollywood, comedy, news media, restauranteurs, publishing, business, art, government, and of course, politics.Why, I wondered to nobody in particular, have all these cases just now come crawling out of the closet? It’s not as if this pig-like behavior hasn’t been going on forever - 30 years in the Weinstein case alone. So I can’t help but wonder who is churning this latest outrage which looks oddly similar to the organizing forces behind Black Lives Matter. I seriously doubt if it is the Left as they seem to...

    Was a 14-year-old girl molested by Alabama Senate Republican candidate Roy Moore, or is she lying? It’s a yes-or-no question. Was a 16-year-old girl sexually assaulted by Moore, or is she lying? Again, it’s a yes-or-no question. Finally, do you believe that there are conditions under which a child molester should sit in the United States Senate? Again, this question is binary. Yet many conservatives seem to be seeking a third answer to all three of these questions, mostly to avoid giving straight answers. Let’s begin with the first question: Did Roy Moore molest a 14-year-old girl? Did he meet...

    Texas woman Roslyn Corrigan claims that former President George H.W. Bush groped her when she was just 16 years old. According to Corrigan, the groping occurred in November of 2003 at an event in The Woodlands, Texas. This is the sixth woman to publicly accuse the 41st president of grabbing her butt without consent. Speaking to Time magazine, Corrigan, who is now in her early 30s, said, “My initial action was absolute horror. I was really, really confused. The first thing I did was look at my mom and, while he was still standing there, I didn’t say anything,” she...
