    The Justice Department this week sent a follow-up notice demanding former Border Patrol Agent Jesus E. Diaz Jr.’s family immediately pay nearly $7,000 and imposing a lien on his property, even though he remains in prison unable to pay and his family says a judge gave them a grace period. It’s the second notice the Justice Department has sent to the family of Diaz, who was sentenced to prison for two years for using excessive force in arresting an illegal immigrant who was suspected of smuggling drugs. The new notice threatens new penalties if the money isn’t paid within 30...

    Largest state unions won't seek recertification by Thursday deadline Madison - By the end of Thursday, the major state employee unions covering tens of thousands of workers will have effectively lost their official status. Top leaders for those unions say they won't seek to meet the high hurdle for keeping that current status laid out in Gov. Scott Walker's union bargaining law. With a deadline set for the close of business Thursday, so far only four smaller state unions have said they'll seek to keep their status by winning a difficult recertification election.

    Yesterday, while Jews were celebrating Passover and Christians were preparing for Easter, wealthy liberals on the west side of Los Angeles were busy bowing down to their deity, Barack Obama, who was in town to raise money for his reelection campaign. Obama spent his time in Los Angeles worshiping himself among his followers in Beverly Hills. For many in Los Angeles, Obama’s visit was a most unholy Thursday. Obama says he is a Christian, and I believe him. But when he says he cares about the concerns of ordinary people, I do not believe him for one moment. This is...

    Punishment Phase for Charlie Rangel Set for ThursdayPosted: November 17, 2010 WASHINGTON — It took House investigators 2½ years and a jury of congressional peers two days to conclude Rep. Charles Rangel of New York violated House rules. A decision on his punishment will be much quicker. Possible sanctions include a House vote deploring his conduct, a fine and denial of certain privileges. The House ethics committee set a hearing Thursday on the appropriate punishment for Rangel, a Democrat who formerly wielded great influence as chairman of the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee. That's only two days after an ethics...

    Lorelei Corpuz was good at convincing everyone she was a young man, police said. For the past 18 months, Corpuz made a teenage girl and the girl's family believe that she was 17-year-old Mark Villanueva. Police and prosecutors say that Corpuz is really 30 and has looks that support her ruse. But early Sunday morning, Corpuz's con came to an end when she was stopped by a rookie Everett police officer, according to court papers. The officer approached Corpuz at a gas station because she was wanted out of Marysville on a warrant for driving with a suspended license. He...
