Foreign Money in American Politics?
Some Say Supreme Court's Decision in Citizens United Case Has Opened New Path
Jan. 24, 2010 —
Some election lawyers believe that last week's landmark U.S. Supreme Court opinion may have opened a new avenue for foreign money to enter the American political system, and that the justices are inviting a repeat of the 1996 Chinese money scandal that bloodied the Clinton administration.

Toledo teen convicted in murder case now a city worker

Just saw this article on 13 ABC's website:

"He drove the getaway car in the shooting that killed Matthew Dugan
A teen convicted of being the getaway driver in a murder one year ago is now working for the city of Toledo.
A judge sentenced Dymon Bolton to four years in prison last December, but he was paroled in May. His attorney says he's working for the city this summer.

Democracy 21 and other groups will push for PMA Scandal probe next week

It appears the push for a probe into the PMA Scandal has even riled the groups that originally worked with the Democrats to push for ethics. So much so, next week they plan to publicly push for a probe into the PMA scandal.
From Roll Call:
Next week, Democracy 21 and other good-government groups are expected to ask the House ethics committee next week for an investigation into lawmakers with close ties to defunct lobbying firm PMA Group, Democracy 21 President Fred Wertheimer said on Friday.

13 ABC just reported (their website isn't updated so I can't provide a link) that another drunk driver caused an accident going the wrong way on 475. Not that it makes a difference but I believe this time it was a woman.
Thankfully no one was killed this time.
