'The Clinton left Arkansas and do not reside here,' the lawmaker told the Hill. 'Many in our state do not want the first thing people see and last thing they remember about Arkansas being two of the most scandal-ridden politicians in...

TSA wanted to do a further scan on Hannah, but she was reluctant. Hannah's mother, Shirley Cohen, tried to inform the agents that her daughter was disabled. She is partially deaf and blind...
