    Cuba Gooding Jr. will turn himself into NYPD on Thursday and will be arrested for allegedly groping a woman -- but on camera he insists he did nothing wrong, and there's hard evidence to prove it. Sources connected to the Oscar winner tell TMZ ... he plans to surrender Thursday and expects to be booked for a misdemeanor charge of forcible touching. Cuba was in L.A. Tuesday night -- about to board a flight to NYC -- when a photog asked him directly about the groping allegation. Cuba says the claim he grabbed a woman's breast Sunday night at Magic...

Eric Greitens had been accused of invasion of privacy for taking a nude picture of the woman with whom he’d been having an affair. According to ABC News, prosecutors still want charges brought against the governor, but want a special prosecutor to bring them later. Prosecutors have acknowledged not having the supposed picture.

    "Nightmare." That's how Scott Hounsell, the former executive director of the Republican Party of Los Angeles County, describes the ordeal he went through two years ago, and is still trying to recover from today. "It was the most — the scariest, most devastating nightmare you could ever imagine ever going through ever," Hounsell added. "Because everything that you have and hold dear — my family, my career, everything — was threatened that it would be taken away from me." “ "It's scary. And I will never be able to get out of the shadow of this, ever. They fundamentally changed...

    On Nov. 22, with the national media focused on the 50th anniversary of former President John F. Kennedy's death, few noticed the story of a jury in North Carolina convicting Crystal Mangum of murder in the 2011 kitchen stabbing death of her boyfriend Reginald Daye. Why should that fact fixate the national media? On its own, it shouldn't. But in 2006 and 2007, Mangum's false charges of rape against three Duke University lacrosse players caused a national tsunami of media sensation, an angry wave of prejudiced coverage presuming the guilt of rich white college boys when being accused by an...

    A man who was falsely accused of sexual assault hanged himself after police failed to tell him they had dropped the case, an inquest heard. John Keogh, 23, was ‘very upset and angry’ after a hospital patient claimed he had indecently assaulted her. An investigation was launched but police decided to drop the case and withdraw all charges after interviewing him. However, officers did not plan to tell Mr Keogh – who was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia when he was 18 - until four days later – by which time, he had hanged himself with a pair of shoelaces. His...

    LAS VEGAS -- A partial review Thursday of surveillance video from a parking garage where a woman said the Republican candidate for governor assaulted her did not reveal the presence of either person, nor of an attack. A judge had ordered police to release 16 hours of surveillance video to lawyers for Rep. Jim Gibbons and Chrissy Mazzeo, who accused the candidate of pushing her against a wall inside the garage Oct. 13 and propositioning her after the two had drinks together at a nearby restaurant. Gibbons, 61, a married, five-term congressman from Reno, has denied any impropriety and says...

    New Travis County grand jurors, after taking oaths on their first day Monday, indicted U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay, R-Sugar Land, on money-laundering and conspiracy charges. The re-indictment took only hours, compared to the six months that a previous grand jury took to consider allegations that Republicans and their business allies, led by DeLay, tried to circumvent a state ban against corporate money in the 2002 Texas campaigns. Monday's indictment played into the hands of the former U.S. House majority leader and his lawyer, Dick DeGuerin of Houston, who appeared at a news conference in Sugar Land to portray Travis County...

    At the risk of piling on, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, in the latest of a series of strained attempts to justify a judicial-filibuster strategy that annihilates Senate traditions, has utterly destroyed the civility that once prevailed in the World's Greatest Deliberative Body. Reid took the floor to decry Republican attempts to restore the old traditions of voting yes-or-no on a president's judicial nominees. About two-thirds of the way through a 30-minute talk, he added the following ad-libbed passage: "Henry Saad would have been filibustered, anyway. He's one of those nominees. All you need to do is have a member...

    Lexington diocese rejects allegation he abused a boy By Frank E. Lockwood HERALD-LEADER STAFF WRITER A Roman Catholic priest who was twice charged with sex-related offenses at Jacobson Park has been reinstated by the Lexington diocese, despite a recent allegation that he sexually abused a boy in Eastern Kentucky in the early 1970s. A diocesan committee in Lexington that reviews allegations of sexual abuse decided the new claim against the Rev. William G. Poole was "not credible," Bishop Ronald Gainer said. But a separate investigation, conducted by a neighboring diocese, resulted in a six-figure settlement with Poole's accuser last year,...
