    Mary Kay Letourneau, who received national infamy after being convicted of raping her student and then later marrying him, has died at age 58, her attorney confirmed to KING 5 news. Letourneau died of stage 4 cancer, said her attorney David Gerke, who represented her on the case. In 1996, Letourneau, a sixth-grade teacher at Shorewood Elementary in Burien, was caught having sexual relations with Vili Fualaau, who was her student. Fualaau was 12-years-old at the time. The two got married in 2005 just after Letourneau was released from a seven-year prison sentence for having sex with a minor. Fualaau...

    NJ Primary Election | Vanity
    New Jersey is holding its primary today, in which the default is to vote by mail. Anyone voting in person must fill out a provisional ballot. And the provisional ballot requires your drivers license number. So voting in person now requires Voter ID, you fill out a lengthy form, and vote with a paper ballot. Normal voting in person does not exist. I've heard for years that Voter ID is a republican plot which suppresses minority Voters. But now it's required if you want to vote in person. I'm hearing numerous reports of people voting in person and telling the...

    Former Reddit CEO Ellen Pao says Ghislaine Maxwell was rubbing elbows with Silicon Valley's elites in 2011 — and Pao believes people suspected Maxwell's ties to child trafficking at the time and didn't care. Maxwell was arrested last week and is awaiting trial for four criminal charges related to procuring and transporting minors for illegal sex acts. Prosecutors say Maxwell participated in a sex trafficking operation alongside her partner Jeffrey Epstein. Pao, a former partner at venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins, said Maxwell was at the firm's holiday party in 2011, more than two years after Epstein was first convicted...

    So I was at my gym this morning in central Maryland. I'm chatting with this guy who asks me if I was on last night's conference call with the alumni from the local (and very expensive) private school (I am a public school person). I live in an affluent suburb that used to vote 3 to 1 Republican, but now is more like 50-50 as the younger, affluent whites trend towards socialism. Anyway, this guy (and others on the call) was irate because the handful of black alumni from this school were on the call, calling for the headmaster's resignation,...

    The barely clothed busker, real name Robert Burck, found a chilly reception when he arrived around 2 p.m. at City Hall Park, where hundreds of demonstrators have vowed to dig in unless the next budget includes a $1 billion funding cut to the NYPD. “Very nice meeting you!” Burck called to the throngs while strumming his guitar and walking off down Chambers Street. “Get the ---- up outta here!” yelled one less-than-amused protester who followed him to make sure he got the hell out of Dodge. “We’re gonna make sure y’all leave!” “You supported Donald Trump,” another demonstrator could be...
