The charges of honest services fraud, extortion and money laundering stemmed from schemes by which he obtained nearly $4 million in exchange for using his position to help benefit a cancer researcher and two real estate developers.'

    A longtime supporter of Newt Gingrich has donated $5 million to a super PAC backing his presidential bid, providing a major boost to Mr. Gingrich’s ailing campaign in the critical lead-up to Tuesday’s presidential primary in New Hampshire. The donation, reported on Saturday night by The Washington Post, came from Sheldon Adelson, a Las Vegas casino mogul who has long been a generous patron of Mr. GIngrich’s political career. The “super PAC,” Winning Our Future, was formed last month by Becky Burkett, who served until earlier this year as chief development officer for American Solutions, a political action committee that...

    Send Feed Back to the TVC   Re: Opposition to S. J. Res. 1 the Marriage Protection Amendment Because of the Second Sentence Dear Senator: Traditional Values Coalition has always taken a strong position in supporting traditional marriage and opposing any statutory imitations of marriage designed to appease the homosexual lobby.   While Traditional Values Coalition supports the need for a federal constitutional amendment, because it is the only way to ensure that marriage between one man and one woman is protected, we strongly oppose S.

    It's time for this column to announce its Sheldon Award, given annually to the university president who does the most to look the other way when free speech is under assault on campus. As all Sheldon fans know, the prize is a statuette that looks something like the Oscar, except that the Oscar shows a man with no face looking straight ahead, whereas the Sheldon shows a man with no spine looking the other way. The award is named for Sheldon Hackney, former president of the University of Pennsylvania and a modern legend in looking the other way.College presidents who...

    All’s fair in love and war, but not in Washington’s liquor monopoly. The state’s Liquor Control Board (LCB) is running into problems again, this time with the nation’s largest membership warehouse chain, Costco. Issaquah-based Costco has filed a lawsuit to do away with Washington’s antiquated law that prohibits the company from purchasing alcoholic beverages from out-of-state distributors. Costco believes the LCB regulations violate the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution and the federal Sherman Antitrust Act. The state’s monopolistic liquor laws also violate a sense of basic market fairness. Currently, Washington does not allow companies to buy liquor from out...

    The head of National Public Radio went to Capitol Hill Wednesday to apologize for a news report the network aired that suggested a conservative lobbying group might have had something to do with the mailing of anthrax to Senate Democratic leaders. However, the chairman of the Traditional Values Coalition (TVC) said the apology was insufficient and indicated his organization would proceed with its lawsuit against NPR. National Public Radio President and CEO Kevin Klose apologized during testimony before the House Subcommittee on Telecommunications, which was gathering input from him and other Public Broadcasting System and NPR officials about future federal...
