A Miami police officer will face disciplinary action after he wore, while in uniform, a "Trump 2020" mask to an early voting site. Steve Simeonidis, chairman of the Miami-Dade Democrats, a photo of the masked officer on Tuesday. Simeonidis called this an "egregious form of voter intimidation" and "a crime.". Miami Mayor Francis Suarez said the officer was at the Stephen P. Clark Government Center in downtown Miami to cast his ballot, and he violated departmental policy by wearing political signage in uniform, "It's inappropriate, it's against departmental orders," Suarez said. "Police officers are supposed to be impartial, so irrespective of who the person was, whatever sign it would have been, it would have been problematic.". Suarez said an.

A juror in Breonna Taylor's case has some serious criticism of how it was handled. On Tuesday, a state judge ruled grand jury records — usually kept sealed — could be to determine if "publicly elected officials are being honest" about Taylor's case. That allowed jurists to speak freely about the case, including one who released a statement criticizing how Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron presented the case to the jury. Taylor was shot and killed by police while they executed a no-knock warrant at her home. Only one of the officers involved was on charges of wanton endangerment for firing into a neighbor's apartment; none were charged with Taylor's death. But as the anonymous juror said Tuesday, the grand jury in Taylor's case weren'

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates there have been almost 300,000 excess deaths in the United States this year amid the coronavirus pandemic. CDC researchers that while about 216,000 deaths from COVID-19 had been confirmed as of Oct. 15, this "might underestimate the total impact of the pandemic on mortality," and they write that "299,028 excess deaths have occurred in the United States from late January through October 3, 2020, with two thirds of these attributed to COVID-19."

1. When life handed Martha Stewart lemons, she didn't even get sick of the taste. In a new interview with Page Six , Rosie O'Donnell described visiting Stewart at the Alderson Federal Prison Camp in West Virginia in 2004, where the lifestyle guru was serving time for insider trading. O'Donnell asked Stewart what it was she missed most while behind bars, fully expecting the answer to be "my daughter" or "my dogs." Nope: Stewart replied, "The flavor of lemon." O'Donnell sure got a kick out of that: "[If] I would have known that, I would have shoved one up my hooter, I could have got one in for you!" she joked. Gotta hand it to Stewart — even in federal prison, she was never not on brand. []. 2. Kanye West has dropped an additional $3 million o.

Which party will win the 2020 elections and what does that mean for America's future? Pundits are in overdrive trying to predict the possible outcomes of campaign strategies, policy platforms, advertising, the courts, voter suppression, and a host of other factors. But the reality is that fate might be out of the candidates', or anyone else's, hands. Control of the United States Senate, and therefore the direction of a whole host of issues ranging from immigration reform to health care to the minimum wage, could come down to whether it rains on Election Day. Research shows that bad weather can meaningfully reduce turnout on Election Eay. According to of presidential elections from 2007, "rain significantly reduces voter participation by a r.

When asked recently by NBC's Savannah Guthrie to state his feelings about a popular conspiracy theory, President Trump gave an equivocal answer. "I know nothing about QAnon," he said. "I do know they are very much against pedophilia. They fight it very hard.". Trump's response was widely criticized, not least because it gave a very one-sided impression of the theory in question and its proponents, whose delusions it seemed to encourage. I am not entirely sure what else he could have said. If reports like this are any indication, QAnon is far more important to millions of the president's supporters than, say, his party's attitude toward marginal tax rates. Trump needs QAnon. A more interesting question is whether QAnon needs Trump. This propo.

Never is there a dull moment interviewing Nicolas Cage. Case in point: the actor spoke in a conversation with Marilyn Manson on Tuesday, and when Manson asked a simple question about whether Cage gambles, he had an entire story ready to go about how he once "turned $200 into $20,000" at a casino in the Bahamas and proceeded to donate it to a nearby orphanage. "I went and found an orphanage in the Bahamas, met all the kids and the headmistress, and said, 'This is for you,'" Cage explained.

1. The 2020 election is nigh, and with many parents juggling full-time work and childcare thanks to the pandemic, Meghan Moravcik Walbert at Lifehacker urges parents to make childcare plans now so they can carve out time to get to the polls. She suggests creating a "voting pod" with other parents in your existing bubble. "Choose a 'home base' where one or two parents stay to supervise while the others go to vote, then swap so everyone gets a turn," she says. Check if local daycare centers, YMCAs, or other facilities are offering Election Day childcare. And if you don't need any childcare, volunteer to help those who do. "Offer to come over, mask on, and host a relay race with their kids in the backyard while they do their civic duty.". []. 2.

1. The White House announced Monday that it has increased its coronavirus-relief offer to nearly $1.9 trillion ahead of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's Tuesday deadline for a deal on a new stimulus package. "[The president] is willing to give some additional money in terms of direct payments" to individuals, and paycheck support for small businesses, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows told reporters. Pelosi (D-Calif.) said over the weekend that the two sides must strike a deal by Tuesday for Congress to have a shot at approving the legislation before the Nov. 3 election. Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin are leading negotiations on resolving differences between the $2.2 trillion House-approved package and the White House's coun.

Archaeologists trying to improve access to an overlook onto Peru's ancient Nazca Lines, a UNESCO world heritage site since 1994, discovered on the side of a hill, Peru's culture ministry announced this week. "The figure was scarcely visible and was about to disappear because it's situated on quite a steep slope that's prone to the effects of natural erosion," the culture ministry said.

Political junkies are on tenterhooks at the moment waiting to see if another vitally needed round of coronavirus relief will get through Congress . Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi set a Tuesday night deadline for , while Trump is at least posturing as if he supports a major bill. It's a difficult situation to read in large part because President Trump is an erratic goofball who changes his position on fundamental questions by the hour and often seems to have no idea what is even being discussed. It's hard to get anything through with such a man needing to sign off on any compromise. However, there are also large structural obstacles to more relief, created by our creaking and ancient Constitution. The American system of government is simp.

For years the conventional wisdom has been that Republicans enjoy a healthy structural advantage in the race for the U.S. Senate. It's how Republicans were able to expand their majority in that chamber despite a brutal national environment in 2018, and it's how senators will be able to plow forward with Amy Coney Barrett's Supreme Court nomination before the election, confident that even if they kick away the Senate this year, it won't be long before they are back in power. That edge is one of the many reasons for making Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico the 51st and 52nd states as the first order of business should Democrats ever recapture the House, Senate, and presidency at the same time. The conventional wisdom is due for a revision eith.

Actor Jeff Bridges shared on Twitter Monday evening that he has been a cancer of the lymphatic system. Bridges, 70, referenced his iconic role in The Big Lebowski in his announcement, "As the Dude would say...new s**t has come to light. I have been diagnosed with lymphoma.

1. Over the weekend, TV writer and producer Amy Berg innocently tweeted the popular "one has to go" meme with pictures of the Four Famous Chrises: Chris Pratt, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pine, and Chris Evans. But the internet seemed to agree on one thing: that it was Pratt, who portrays Peter Quill in the Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers movies, who was the "worst Chris." Reasons varied, from Pratt to him having been for attending an "infamously anti-LGBTQ" church. Some Twitter users tried to direct Pratt's fans to a superior Chris: "Stan Chris Evans for clear skin," . "Stan autumn loving and the best dog dad Chris Evans," . []. 2. It might not have been the big announcement we're all waiting for, but Adele shared some exciting news on Sund.
