    What is the law on purchase of new merchandise that ships defective? Please avoid bashing me because I use the sun. I just purchased a solar hybrid inverter from a distributor in MA for $3000. I am in FL. It does not perform correctly (as defined by an earlier model I already have that does work right) By email the company admits to a defect in the original release. It was shipped in version 1.00.00 of the firmware. The product claims a 10 year warranty. To fix the defect the company tells me to upgrade the firmware to version 1.3.0...

    BREAKING NEWS … According to Senator Ann Rivers (18th Legislative District), whose office was briefed today by the Employment Security Department (ESD), the unemployment check fraud case is now approaching $1 billion in lost state funds. Originally, the suspected fraud loss was $350 million. “The ESD fraud case is beyond anything originally suspected,” said Rivers. “Nearly $1 billion has been lost to Nigeria and other fraudsters.”
  • Appeals Court Continues Halt on Expanding Voting by Mail in Texas

    A federal appeals court on Thursday continued to keep on hold any expansion of mail voting in Texas, where President Donald Trump has cheered on a fight against relaxing balloting rules amid the coronavirus pandemic. The decision by 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans is not the last word on the matter, but it stops, for now, a lower-court ruling that had opened the door for Texas' 16 million registered voters to cast ballots by mail. The case remains before the court with primary runoff elections in Texas, which are set for July 14, now less than...

    OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Washington officials said Thursday they believe they have recovered about half of the hundreds of millions in unemployment benefits paid to criminals who used stolen identities to file claims during the coronavirus pandemic. Employment Security Department Commissioner Suzi LeVine said officials are still working to determine the final amount paid out fraudulently, but they believe it was between $550 million and $650 million. To date, the state has recovered $333 million, she said. “We do believe there is still a significant amount we can get back,” she said. The number of new claims for unemployment benefits...

    Sorry America. We hate to break it to you but you’ve been had. Those horrible projections made about the coronavirus, were wrong – way wrong. We’re not saying that the elderly were not at risk. We never did. If New York, New Jersey, Michigan and other Democrat led states would have protected their elderly in the same manner as Republican-led Florida, then you would never had seen the death tolls in those states that you did. By forcing coronavirus infected individuals into the elderly homes, the leaders of states like New York murdered the elderly in those institutions.What we are...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court on Monday upheld the oversight board established by Congress to help Puerto Rico out of a devastating financial crisis that has been exacerbated by the coronavirus outbreak, recent earthquakes and damage from Hurricane Maria in 2017. The justices reversed a lower court ruling that threatened to throw the island’s recovery efforts into chaos. In a unanimous holding, the court will allow the oversight board’s work to pull the island out of the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history to proceed. At one point, Puerto Rico faced more than $100 billion in debt and unfunded...

    Shares of Coty plummeted 13 percent on Friday after Forbes magazine kicked Kylie Jenner off it's billionaire's list and accused her of 'inflating the value of her cosmetics business for years.' Forbes published an article based on an examination of financial filings after the beauty mogul sold a majority share in her cosmetics company. Jenner sold a 51 percent stake in her Kylie Cosmetics brand to beauty giant Coty in January for $600 million in a deal that valued the company at $1.2 billion.

    The Bangladeshi-Indian restaurant, Gandhi Mahal, in Minneapolis' 3rd Precinct was burned to the ground during riots that ravaged the city Thursday night into Friday morning. The restaurant sat in the epicenter of where America's riots began following the death of George Floyd. In fact, 18-year-old Hafsa Islam, the restaurant owner's daughter, saw Floyd being arrested while she was making a Door Dash delivery. She learned later in the day that Floyd had died. Hafsa was originally upset with the fact that her family's business – and main source of income – was lost until she heard her father say, "Let...
  • Reject Universal Mail-In Balloting to Protect the 2020 Election

    President Trump recently made news when he protested the mailing of voting ballots in some states and expressed concerns about the increasing potential for voter fraud as a result. Twitter labeled the tweet in need of fact-checking and set off a media firestorm. The fact of the matter is that we need to look beyond the partisan labels when considering whether we should suddenly alter how we vote and focus our attention on protecting the voice of the American people. For example, a ballot vendor mistakenly shipped ballots intended for South Carolina voters to Maryland recently, reinforcing the risk involved in orchestrating...

    Kylie Jenner could face a criminal investigation over alleged exaggerations of her company's value, a top financial fraud attorney has revealed. The cosmetics entrepreneur was kicked off the coveted Forbes Billionaire list by the wealth magazine on Friday in a shock move, after the outlet said financial filings with the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) show she may have been lying about the success of her cosmetics company. In an exclusive interview with, internationally renowned lawyer Jan Handzlik, who served five years as a federal prosecutor in LA and now defends celebrities and big companies in financial fraud cases, said...

    A Paterson NAACP leader said the recent city council vote-by-mail election was allegedly so flawed that the results should be thrown out and a new election ordered. “Invalidate the election. Let’s do it again,” said Rev. Kenneth Clayton said amid reports more that 20 percent of all ballots were disqualified, some in connection with voter fraud allegations. “These kinds of acts make people not want to vote anymore. They feel disenfranchised, disconnected that their votes don’t count, and that is not fair to people," he said. Rev. Clayton said the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) will...

    When the first massive coronavirus aid package was passed in Congress it included substantial benefits for workers who lost their jobs because of the government-mandated shutdown. One of the biggest was the federal enhancement of state unemployment benefits, increasing weekly payments by up to six hundred dollars. As we quickly learned, Senate Republicans’ concerns over not having a cap on those benefits to prevent the payments from exceeding the employee’s previous salary were fully justified.That didn’t wind up being the only problem with the plan, however. We’re now learning that the hastily rushed through bill and the flood of...

    The coronavirus outbreak is wreaking havoc on America’s elections, as evidenced by the fight this month over Wisconsin’s primary. One proposed solution is moving everyone to voting by mail, but President Trump isn’t a fan. “A lot of people cheat with mail-in voting,” he said last week. He’s got a point. I’ve done it myself. In 2011, when I was living in Palm Beach County, Florida, I decided to test the system, and so I asked for three voter registration applications. I filled them out, listing three different names — two that I pulled out of my head Rebecca Bugle...

    President Donald Trump has had a problematic week on Twitter, engaging in political combat with foils like MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough has inspired a backlash beyond any he’s faced before as president. Part of the reaction was Twitter’s decision to stick a “fact check” label on two of Trump’s tweets about mail-in ballots. This decision, in turn sparked its own backlash around issues of freedom of expression and political bias. (Will President Stacey Abrams ever get a tweet fact-checked by Twitter? Probably not.) Overlooked in the social media scrum over Trump’s tweets, however, is the one issue most relevant to voters...

    Twitter for the first time put a fact-check label on tweets from President Trump, using the controversial tactic on messages in which the president complained there is “no way” that “mail-in ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent.” It may be instructive that Twitter seized on the mail-in balloting tweets as the first issue from Trump’s rapid fire social media feed to slap with a fact-check label. Twitter did not disclose in its so-called fact-check it is partners with two groups financed by leftist donors that engage in voter participation efforts, including drives pushing mail-in balloting.

    West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, U.S. Attorney Bill Powell and Secretary of State Mac Warner announced a criminal charge against a rural mail carrier Tuesday in a voter fraud case related to absentee ballot requests. President Trump recently accused the Democrats of using the Coronavirus as a vehicle to rig the election with mail-in voting. “Trying to use Covid for this scam!” On Tuesday morning, President Trump said “There is NO WAY (ZERO) that mail-in ballots will be anything less than fraudulent. Mail boxes will be robbed, ballots will be forged & even illegally printed out & fraudulently signed.”

    Joe Biden has hired a national director for voter protection, a role his campaign says will focus broadly on voter rights, including the disenfranchisement of people of color amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The campaign said Rachana Desai Martin will join its legal team, serving also as senior counsel. Martin, who has a strong background in voter protection work, previously worked as chief operating officer of the Democratic National Committee and as the DNC’s director of civic engagement and voter protection. The pandemic has disproportionately affected people of color, especially black Americans who represent an outsize number of infections and deaths....

    A postal carrier in Pendleton County is accused of committing attempted election fraud by taking requests for Democratic absentee ballots and re-marking them as requests for Republican ballots. Mail carrier Thomas Cooper, 47, of Dry Fork was charged with “attempt to defraud the residents of West Virginia of a fair election.” The charge was filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia. The investigator was Bennie Cogar of the West Virginia Attorney General’s Office and on behalf of the West Virginia Secretary of State’s Office. Cogar swore an affidavit, which was included with the filing....
