    Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill’s husband used the U.S. Senate Dining Room to cut business deals selling tax credits tied to stimulus money, a whistle-blowing executive inside his company alleged on an audio recording exclusively obtained by The Daily Caller. “The thing that irritated me about this was he [McCaskill’s husband Joseph Shepard] entertained these outside investors in the Senate Dining Room,” the whistle-blower said. “That’s where he closed the deal.” The whistle-blower, Craig Woods, was a longtime high-ranking official within Shepard’s business empire, serving first as chief financial officer and then as vice president and chief underwriter for Missouri Equity...

    Edwards advised to keep low profile before 2nd actBy MARTHA WAGGONER and MICHAEL BIESECKER | Associated Press – Fri, Jun 1, 2012 RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Now that he has survived his campaign corruption trial, John Edwards may face an even tougher fight to regain the public's respect. Image experts and friends recommended that the disgraced former Democratic presdential candidate put his public and political life on hold for a few years. The details of his affair and child with his mistress that were replayed at his trial are too fresh, they say. "Plant a small garden, tend that garden...

    Hillary Clinton's "3 a.m. phone call" ad could have been a devastating attack on Obama's competence and experience. It failed to have an impact on voters because it ran four years too soon. Against the backdrop of a sleeping child, the ad's narrator says there's something going on in the world, and a phone is ringing in the White House. He asks, who do you want answering the phone? Someone who knows the military, world leaders, and is tested and ready to lead? Unfortunately for Clinton, almost no one was interested in competence or national security in the last presidential...

"Here's a guy who is an Emmy Award winning journalist, who has dealt with cops and wiretaps and undercover investigations virtually his entire life," Haldeman's defense attorney Gerald Shargel said today. Shargel alleged that Letterman wasn't telling the whole story in last week's confessional that he was being blackmailed. Cops say 48 Hours Mystery producer Haldeman offered to "sell" Letterman a "screenplay treatment" about the comedian's affairs with Late Show staffers including Dave and Haldeman ex...

    Ted Kennedy slept with more than a thousand women - and spent at least $10 million in hush money over the years to keep his skirt-chasing a secret! The late senator made those sensational confessions in a chapter of his autobiography, but horrified family members and advisers cut them out. Before he died of brain cancer at age 77 on Aug. 25, the womanizing politician also revealed that he planned to seduce Mary Jo Kopechne on the night she drowned, said a close source.

    With the possible exception of the O.J. Simpson trial, it would be hard to think of a tabloid-ready celebrity scandal from the past 30 years that provokes a more purely, intensely, overheated-ly emotional response than the Roman Polanski rape case of 1977. (He fled the country early in 1978.) It’s a safe bet that a lot of people, upon reading the headline that Polanski had been arrested in Zurich, with the possibility of extradition to the U.S. to stand trial on that charge, greeted the news with more or less the following sentiment: “Good! It’s about time that the authorities...

    Saint Paul, Minn. (AP) -- Attorneys for U.S. Senator Larry Craig are asking the Minnesota Court of Appeals to correct a "manifest injustice" by allowing the Idaho Republican to withdraw his guilty plea stemming from an airport restroom sex sting. In court papers filed Tuesday, the lawyers asked the appellate judges to reverse the trial court's decision to let stand Craig's guilty plea to a disorderly conduct charge. They also asked the court to vacate his plea. Craig was arrested in June in a restroom stall at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport during a broad sweep targeting men soliciting sex. An...

    With the Abramoff scandal prompting Democrats to charge that the Republicans in Washington are mired in a culture of corruption it is perhaps the wisest of the left who remain silent, passively condoning the ultra-partisan activities of their leadership. There are good reasons for many elected officials on the left to choose to remain silent. One of those reasons is that one never knows when something from the past is lurking in wait. One of those elected officials from the Democratic side of the aisle is the junior Senator from New York and former First Lady, Hillary Rodham Clinton. That...

    Former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein manipulated the United Nations oil-for-food program so that his regime received $1.8 billion in illicit payments, a U.N.-backed independent report said Thursday. The investigation, led by former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker, said kickbacks came from some 66 member states and illicit surcharges came from 40 member states. The report also said Marc Rich & Co. financed 4 million barrels of oil under a 9.5-million-barrel contract awarded to the European Oil and Trading Co. (EOTC), a French-based shell company. "Surcharges were imposed on the oil," the report said, and "Marc Rich & Co. directed BNP...

"One of Marc Rich's companies was on the United Nations list that was approved to trade and transport Iraqi oil," Fox News Channel's Eric Shawn reported Tuesday. "And it appears that Mr. Rich's firm, Marc Rich & Co. Investments AG, may well have been given that approval by the U.N. before the presidential pardon," Shawn added. That means the U.N. was ready to do business with America's most-wanted...

    Don't spend that $330 annual savings in property taxes you're supposed to get by 2006. That's the $330 average property tax reduction per household promised from legislation legalizing slot machines and from adding 0.1 percent to the local wage tax. It was pushed by Gov. Ed Rendell and backed by a majority of state lawmakers on July 4. The wage tax would take effect the year property tax relief is provided. If your family income is $100,000, you'll pay $100 more in the wage tax. That should be deducted from the $330 for a net savings of $230. Then wait....

Why did the parents have to say they'd be voting for Kerry? The issue was NOT who'd they vote for, but wheter Kerry's a sleazeball. Was she threatened? Were parents pressured? What WAS/IS the relationship between Kerry and Polier? How many times did they meet? Socially? Politically? Alone? Where was Teresa at the time? I don't know and I don't have all the facts.

    A global media scrum descended on the Chester County suburb of Malvern yesterday because of a furor over a rumored romantic link between a 1995 Great Valley High School grad and presidential hopeful John Kerry. Despite the frenzy, little information was forthcoming yesterday, and there was no confirmation of any relationship between Kerry and the woman. Several news trucks and assorted gawkers loitered outside the home of the parents of 27-year-old Alexandra Polier after her dad was quoted in a British tabloid that Kerry was "a sleazeball" who'd shown an interest in his daughter.

But 33 years ago, he was widely regarded as a hippie, in no small measure because of his anti-war activities with the Vietnam Veterans Against the War. Much has been made of the photograph of Kerry with Jane Fonda, and his involvement in the so-called Winter Soldier Investigation. But there's another interesting aspect to what Kerry was up to back then. It's a book, "The New Soldier," about the VVAW demonstrations in...

The most recent payments to Chad and Cadee Condit all but emptied the treasury Condit established when his statewide prospects appeared bright. They also illuminate the sometimes controversial liberties politicians can take with political action committees. "I would consider it unusual and downright misleading for a candidate to use PAC funds to pay his children," David Schecter, assistant professor of political science at California State University, Fresno, said Monday. But Schecter added, "If the payments...
