Tennessee Lawmakers Consider Criminalizing Abortion In All Cases

Tennessee Lawmakers Consider Criminalizing Abortion In All Cases

Tennessee attempted to pass the same bill during this year’s legislative session but stopped short when lawmakers realized it would result in the state losing costly court battles. Tennessee lawmakers said Monday they are considering whether to seek one of the nation’s strictest abortion bans even as such laws continue to be struck down in court. At issue is a proposal to prohibit abortion once a pregnancy is detected. While a similar bill stalled in the Republican-controlled Statehouse earlier this year, backers are renewing efforts now to collect enough support ahead of the 2020...

President Donald Trump and his campaign and the Republican National Committee filed a pair of lawsuits on Tuesday challenging a new California law that requires all presidential and gubernatorial candidates to publicly release their tax returns in order to appear on the state’s primary ballot. The action comes about a week after California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) signed that law aimed at Trump, who has famously refused to release his tax returns. Newsom, California Secretary of State Alex Padilla and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra are named as defendants in the suits. Both...

James Comey: If Reports Are Correct, Trump Engaged In 'Shocking Abuse Of Power'

James Comey: If Reports Are Correct, Trump Engaged In 'Shocking Abuse Of Power'

“The House has no choice but to pursue an impeachment inquiry,” Comey says in Politicon interview. If news accounts are accurate about the facts concerning President Donald Trump’s dealings with Ukraine, he engaged in a “shocking abuse of power” and “The House has no choice but to pursue an impeachment inquiry,” former FBI Director James Comey declared Saturday. Comey blasted Trump’s reported behavior in an interview with MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace at the bipartisan Politicon political convention in Nashville, Tennessee. Comey also said that if he was still in charge of the FBI he “might”...

The Fall Of Mic Was A Warning

The Fall Of Mic Was A Warning

Esther Bergdahl felt invigorated. How could she not? It was 2014, and she had just joined the millennial-centric news site PolicyMic, where something exciting always seemed to be happening. That January, Forbes included the company’s co-founders on its annual “30 Under 30” list. A few months later, the site announced it had secured $10 million in a funding round. That June, PolicyMic rebranded simply as Mic after buying the domain for $500,000, according to company sources. The company explained the switch at the time by saying the new name reflected its “expanded focus and bold vision.” ...

Women’s Soccer Put Equal Pay On The Agenda. Now What?

Women’s Soccer Put Equal Pay On The Agenda. Now What?

On top of winning the World Cup, the U.S. women’s soccer team did something else truly amazing this month: They got the whole country talking about economics ― specifically, equal pay for women. At a parade in their honor in New York on Wednesday, crowds chanted for equal pay. And the wage gap ― the difference between what men and women earn ― became the subject of conversation on sports radio and in places typically unbothered by the gender inequality. The question now is: What’s next? Right now in the U.S., women are paid on average 80 cents for every dollar a man earns, and the pay...

Nearly 800 Former Boy Scouts Come Forward With New Sex Abuse Allegations

Nearly 800 former Boy Scouts claimed in a recent lawsuit that the Boy Scouts of America failed to protect them from sexual abuse at the hands of troop leaders and others in positions of power. The suit, filed late Monday, claims the BSA has continually covered up a “pedophilia epidemic within their organization.” At a Tuesday press conference to discuss the lawsuit, attorneys said they have identified nearly 800 men from across the country who have accused at least 350 previously unknown scoutmasters and volunteers of sexual abuse. The accusations range from groping to rape. “It’s the...

Inside The Secret Border Patrol Facebook Group Where Agents Joke About Migrant Deaths And Post Sexist Memes

Members of a secret group for current and former Border Patrol agents joked about the deaths of migrants, discussed throwing burritos at Latino members of Congress visiting a detention facility in Texas on Monday and posted a vulgar illustration depicting Rep. engaged in oral sex with a detained migrant, according to screenshots of their postings.

One member posted a GIF of...
