    Update 8:30 a.m.: Tim Canova says he will file an election complaint against the DNC over the email leaks, which he contends show Debbie Wasserman Schultz breaking election rules.

Update 10:45 a.m.: It appears Debbie Wasserman Schultz personally asked staff to remove Tim Canova's name from a headline in a statement sent out after Bernie Sanders endorsed Canova.

    MSNBC reporter Andrea Mitchell said Monday she had never seen anything like the chaotic scene at the Florida Democratic delegation breakfast where outgoing party chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.) was booed off the stage and escorted out by security. Schultz was forced to yell her remarks Monday morning over jeers and shouting from angry Bernie Sanders supporters in the wake of the DNC email leak showing Democratic Party favoritism for Hillary Clinton. Schultz announced Sunday she would resign as party chair after this week’s convention, but she still tried to speak to her fellow Florida delegates, to no avail.

    Outgoing Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was booed and jeered at a pre-convention delegation breakfast this morning in Philadelphia, a day after the Democratic National Committee chair announced she would resign from the post following the leak of embarrassing party emails. Amid ugly scenes, an event organizer repeatedly tried to quiet the crowd, but the boos continued as Wasserman Schultz began speaking. "Shame on you!" screamed some. "You rigged the election!" was another repeated refrain. Many of the vocal protesters were seen wearing shirts supporting Sen. Bernie Sanders.

    This was supposed to be one of the biggest and brightest days for Debbie Wasserman Schultz: day one of the Democratic National Convention to nominate the first female candidate from a major party in American history. Instead, the embattled chair of the DNC has been forced to resign just days after Wikileaks released tens of thousands of incriminating emails that suggest efforts from within to target Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders during the primary. And on Monday morning when Wasserman Schultz got up to speak at a delegate breakfast for her home state of Florida, she was met with exactly the...

    Sorry about that bullet, man. I was aiming for the autistic guy. A Florida cop who wounded an unarmed black therapist was actually trying to shoot the man’s patient, a union official said Thursday. The unidentified North Miami police officer thought Charles Kinsey — who was lying on his back with his arms in the air — was in danger, his union chief said. The patient, who escaped from MACtown Inc., a nearby group home where Kinsey works, had a toy in his hand. “All he has is a toy truck, a toy truck,” Kinsey told the cop Monday, according...

Philip Esformes, 47, charged with two other defendants, is accused of exploiting his network of about 20 Miami-Dade skilled-nursing and assisted-living facilities to fleece the taxpayer-funded Medicare by filing false claims for services that were not necessary or in some instances not provided over the past 14 years. An unidentified local hospital referred some of the thousands of Medicare patients to his network through kickback payments to physicians and other medical...

The disgusting phenomenon is nothing new, unfortunately, with reports dating back decades that show officers have been reticent to dine out in uniform due to the risk of receiving a contaminated meal. As Black Lives Matter activists and other protest groups have stoked animosity toward the law enforcement community, however, these stories have begun to surface with greater frequency. Not only do officers — like two who visited a North Carolina Zaxby’s...
