Rick Scott has put his investments into a "blind trust" to avoid the appearance that he's using his office for financial gain. But that blind trust has loopholes. As reporters have uncovered a steady stream of ethically questionable investment holdings by Florida governor and GOP Senate candidate Rick Scott that appear to have been affected by decisions made by the state government, he has stuck to a singular refrain: there is no conflict of interest because his investments are in a "blind trust."The New York Times, however, points out that Scott's "blind trust" is in fact full of loopholes that would, if he wanted, have allowed him to be aware of his holdings:To shield himself from future conflict charges, Mr. Scott, who is now running to unseat the incumbent senator Bill Nelson, created a $73.8 million investment account that he called a blind trust. But an examination of Mr. Scott’s finances shows that his trust has been blind in name only. There have been num...

Trump's vaunted 60 Minutes interview was a ratings flop, just as analytics show articles sourced to it were flops and the fact that this post about it being a flop will also be a flop. According to the A.P., the president’s 60 Minutes interview on Sunday night reached 11.7 million viewers, just over half as many as Daniels pulled for her own blockbuster 60 Minutes interview back in March. Around 22 million viewers tuned in then to watch Daniels discuss her alleged 2006 affair with the president. That interview got the program’s highest ratings since a 2008 interview with Barack and Michelle Obama. Trump’s episode also flopped in comparison to his 60 Minutes interview in 2016, which drew 20 million viewers. Everyone knows what he is; he's a marker, not a man. It doesn't require journalistic elaboration anymore. The tweets are quite enough. Read the rest

A Republican Senate candidate compared Michelle Obama to a chimpanzee during her meeting with the Queen and urged the former first lady to stand up “straighter”. Karin Housley – currently a state senator who serves in Minnesota – took to Facebook in 2009 to compare Ms Obama to the chimpanzee in 1951 film Bedtime for Bonzo, which starred Ronald Reagan.

The Duchess of Sussex has said that she and her husband are "ready" and "excited to  join the club" after announcing they are becoming parents. The Duke spoke of his joy at being able to announce news of the new royal baby in Australia, saying he could not think of a better place to tell the world. After a wet and windy start to the Sussex's time Down Under, the sun was shining for the couple as they enjoyed the sights of Sydney on the first official day of their tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.

Republicans just can't turn off the racism. Minnesota Republican Senate candidate Karin Housley is facing fresh scrutiny for comments she posted to Facebook in 2009, in which she compared former First Lady Michelle Obama to the chimpanzee from the 1951 Ronald Reagan film "Bedtime for Bonzo" following Michelle's meeting with Queen Elizabeth II."Michelle is soooo far from cool. Don't we expect our First Ladies to at least stand up straight? (And my dear sister, know the proper etiquette and DO NOT TOUCH THE QUEEN!)," Housley wrote in postings revealed by the Huffington Post on Monday. "I do miss Nancy Reagan. Ronald even more. Speaking of Bedtime for Bonzo, I think even that chimp stood up straighter than Michelle. Uh-oh, someone is going to make a comment."Housley spokesman Jake Schneider refused to apologize when reached for comment by the Huffington Post.

INCHEON, South Korea – There have been 22 different winners on the LPGA in 27 events this season. The biggest misconception about the tour right now, says Marina Alex, is that the same players win every week. Alex, 28, is one of seven first-time winners in 2018, joining the likes of Pernilla Lindberg and Georgia Hall, both major champions. The LPGA has grown as deep as it is diverse. Jessica Korda was in South Korea when Alex won in Portland, Ore., and asked Michelle Wie to send her videos when live streaming went kaput. “I was crying I was so happy for her,” Korda said.

Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate, has said she is "deeply worried" that tens of thousands of Georgians are being stripped of their constitutional rights. Civil rights groups have filed a new lawsuit in order to stop a statewide voter suppression effort in Georgia after the GOP gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp—who just happens to be the state's Secretary of State as well—led an effort to purge more than 50,000 voter registrations, predominately of black voters, from the rolls just weeks before the November 6 election.Led by the Georgia Coalition of the People's Agenda, the local NAACP, and other civil rights groups, the suit (pdf) seeks to halt enforcement of the so-called "exact match" rule that allows the state to purge registrations if any part of their name or other information does not match existing documents."Georgia's 'exact match' protocol has resulted in the cancellation or rejection of tens of thousands of voter registration applications in th...

When Obama took office, he took over from one of the least popular presidents in US history, 22% George Bush, a liar who tortured and spied his way through an illegitimate war that we're still fighting, and next year's deployment will include soldiers who weren't even born when the war started. Bush's crimes, high and low, were the subject of intense public interest and there was massive pressure on Obama to investigate and publish the details of the outgoing administration's misdeeds. Obama's position was that "We need to look forward as opposed to looking backwards." He refused any attempt to prosecute the GWB squad for their myriad of sins. This set the stage for the rehabilitation of America's first wave of 21st century looters: from GWB himself (now known as Michelle Obama's BFF -- a gentlemanly painter who is supposedly secretly part of the #resistance), the torturer who now runs the CIA, and now, Brett Kavanaugh: once GWB's White House Staff Secretary, whose memos and emails...

On Friday’s “PBS NewsHour,” New York Times columnist David Brooks argued that President Trump’s behavior “has put the Republicans at a moral disadvantage.” Brooks stated, “To me, one of the — an interesting debate is happening. You could call it the Michelle Obama-Hillary Clinton debate. And when Michelle Obama famously said, when they go low, we’ll go high, and she’s sticking to that. And Hillary Clinton says, no, they’re going low, we’ve got to go low too. And you see that debate. I think, in this age, having the moral high ground is a bit of an advantage, a major advantage. And because of Donald Trump’s behavior, he has put the Republicans at a moral disadvantage.” He continued, “And keeping go — staying high, staying reasonably civil, not totally going into the gutter with Donald Trump strikes me as the right Democratic strategy and the right strategy for any movement. Because once you go down there, you self-corru...

When Obamacare came into effect, Notre Dame and other religious institutions forced the administration into a baroque arrangement whereby the US government would insure birth control prescriptions for women otherwise covered by the institution, so that the institution could hew to a religious doctrine that abhors the idea of women controlling their own fertility. The arrangement was semi-stable, barring some wobbles when Trump began to erode the Affordable Care Act, but then Notre Dame -- and 73 other institutions -- secretly entered into an arrangement with Notre Dame to deny women coverage for their birth control. Notre Dame pitches itself to students and faculty as an "inclusive" institution and many women who attend and work there made that choice on the basis of their understanding that their health and fertility would not be trumped by religious bigotry and superstition. They were wrong. Michelle Banker, a lawyer with the National Women’s Law Center, said a clue was fou...

The request “sends a message that teenagers and women may be using the Internet for frivolous reasons.” Russell Nelson, the 94-year-old leader of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, a.k.a., the Mormon Church, issued a challenge to Mormon women on October 6: give up social media for ten days—and at a time when Twitter, Facebook and Instagram can be valuable tools for business, some Mormon women are responding that his sexist request is much easier said than done.Nelson’s challenge of a social media “fast” for women was not a command, but a request. Social media, according to Nelson, has a tendency to “bring negative and impure thoughts to your mind.” But Republican Michelle Quist, who is running for a city council seat in Salt Lake City—easily the most Mormon-friendly place in the U.S.—asserted that refraining from social media use for ten days could hurt her campaign.Slate quoted Quist as saying, “I don’t know why my prophet felt this was a g...

Earlier in the week, Clinton said it is impossible to be civil until Democrats regain power. Yesterday Holder said, “[W]hen they go low, we kick ’em.” Co-host Samantha Guthrie cited both Clinton and Holder when asking Obama if she still believes in her motto from her 2016 Democratic National Convention speech when she said, “When they go low, we go high.” Obama said, “Absolutely. Fear is not a proper motivator. Hope wins out. And if you think about how you want your kids to be raised, how you want them to think about life and their opportunities, do you want them afraid of their neighbors? Do you want them angry? Do you want them vengeful?” She continued, “You know if we think of the values that we try to promote to our children. Savannah, you’re a mother. Ri...
