    Felicity Huffman reported to a California federal correctional institution Tuesday to serve time for her part in the college admissions scandal. **SNIP** Huffman, 56, pleaded guilty in May and accepted responsibility for her part in the high-profile college admissions scandal that demonstrated the lengths wealthy parents will go in order to secure their kids a spot at the college of their choice. The "Desperate Housewives" star pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud earlier this year. She confessed to paying an admissions consultant $15,000 to have a proctor correct her older...

    For the House’s growing impeachment caucus, June is shaping up to be the most critical month to make their case to a reluctant Speaker Nancy Pelosi. A month packed with subpoena fights, hearings on obstruction of justice and legal battles over Trump’s financial records is certain to provide fresh ammunition to grow the pro-impeachment ranks. “The temperature’s rising, the plot is thickening. It’s hard for me to imagine Congress certainly leaving for the August recess without some closure on this,” said Rep. Jared Huffman (D-Calif.), who supports impeachment. “The Hamlet act is, I think, wearing thin, and it’s becoming untenable...

    The story that’s stranger than fiction is becoming fiction: A scripted TV series based on the recent college admissions scandal that ensnared actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin is in the works, according to our sister site Variety. Annapurna TV is producing the limited series, based on the upcoming book chronicling the scandal, Accepted, by Melissa Korn and Jennifer Levitz. Writer D.V. DeVincentis (The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story) is set to pen the adaptation. No network is attached to the project yet, though. To refresh your memory: Huffman and Loughlin were among a number of parents accused...

    Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman won't be spared prison time in any plea bargain they cut for their alleged involvement in a college admissions scandal, according to a new report. Law enforcement sources told TMZ that prosecutors in the case will recommend that prison time be attached to any deal. "You can't have people being treated differently because they have money," an official told the website. "That's how we got to this place. Every defendant will be treated the same."

    As the fallout from the nationwide elite college bribery scheme continues, the indicted Felicity Huffman, Lori Loughlin and STX Entertainment co-founder Bill McGlashan have all been hit today in a multi-billion dollar lawsuit from one very angry mother. That’s “no less than $500,000,000,000” angry to be specific. “Joshua applied to some of the colleges where the cheating took place and did not get in,” says award winning former Oakland school teacher Jennifer Kay Toy of her 4.2 graduating son. “Joshua and I believed that he’d had a fair chance just like all other applicants but did not make the cut...

    (UPDATED with information from law enforcement press conference) Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin knowingly broke the law trying to get their kids into top tier colleges, according to the FBI and the U.S Attorney’s office for the district of Massachusetts. The Desperate Housewives and Fuller House actors were named among a group of 33 parents who paid millions in bribes to coaches at Ivy League schools like Georgetown University, Stanford University, UCLA, Yale and USC so their children could gain admission as recruited athletes – even if they weren’t actually athletes. The just unsealed March 6 indictment notes that the...

    HUFFMAN, Texas – People who live in a Huffman neighborhood weren’t surprised when Bradley and Dennis Turner made headlines this week. They say their Lake Houston-area neighborhood was peaceful until four years ago when the Turner family moved in. Deputies say it was the Turner brothers who broke into a woman’s home in the Commons subdivision earlier this week. She hid her 10-year-old son in a closet, grabbed a gun and fired at the suspects. "I was scared and trembling," said her son, who heard the shot. She missed and the robbers fled, but they left fingerprints behind, according to...

    I thought this link would be of value regarding the AZ district 8 election. If you go to the link http://tray.com/cgi-win/x_IndepExp_SQL_By_State_Date.exe?DoFn=&Count=20060901&sYR=2006 You will find the following from about 8/22 to 9/22: 1. The NRCC spent about 100,000 dollars supporting Huffman. 2. The DCCC spent about 200,000 dollars opposing Huffman and about 0 dollars opposing Graf. 3. The Minutemen have spent about 45,000 supporting Graf 4. After the primary, the RNCC spent about 16,000 supporting Graf and about 70,000 opposing Giffords. From this I conclude that the Democrats wanted to run against Graf and not Huffman. The Republicans wanted Huffman to...

      PUBLISHED ON SEPTEMBER 21, 2006: Primary School Lessons from last week's election By JIM NINTZEL Why did Randy Graf kick Steve Huffman's ass in the Congressional District 8 GOP primary? Huffman had plenty of advantages in this race: The backing of the business community, a campaign war chest packed with more than $670,000 (we'll be really interested in seeing the final spending figures when he files his next Federal Election Commission report), six-figure support from the National Republican Congressional Committee, the endorsement of outgoing Congressman Jim Kolbe and the general perception that he was the moderate alternative to...

    Team America PAC ^ | 09/13/2006
    Thanks to your help, Team America endorsed candidate Randy Graf beat out establishment candidate Steve Huffman in Arizona's 8th congressional district 43% to 37%. Graf is as strong a candidate you can find, while Huffman is an amnesty supporter. Graf won even though the National Republican Congressional Committee pumped in hundreds of thousands of dollars into Huffman's campaign -- something unheard of in an open primary. If that wasn't bad enough, the ads portrayed pro-amnesty Huffman as tough on border security! Arizona voters were not fooled, and selected a candidate who will secure our borders and enforce our laws. We...

Matt weakly claimed that he was not endorsing any candidate. Sorry Matt your pathetic attempt to help Huffman and say you are not favoring him is too transparent.

    National GOP has no business in local race Our view: Its support of Huffman in the primary is a mistake that has backfired Tucson, Arizona | Published: 09.09.2006 The National Republican Congressional Committee should have stayed out of the GOP primary race in the 8th Congressional District. Its support of candidate Steve Huffman sends the wrong message that national party leaders know better than locals who would be the best candidate for Congress. The NRCC's move also has harmed local party unity and opened up Huffman to attacks within the Republican Party and from Democrats. If Huffman wins the...

    WASHINGTON - An Arizona congressional race has sparked a rift between Rep. Tom Tancredo and the Colorado Republican Party. Tancredo, a Littleton Republican, is backing a fellow, hard-line opponent of illegal immigration, Randy Graf, in Tuesday's GOP primary in an open-seat race. Much of the national Republican establishment has lined up behind another candidate, Steve Huffman. This week, the Colorado Republican Committee sent Huffman a $5,000 contribution, Federal Election Commission records show. The Colorado contribution angers Tancredo, who has used his profile on immigration to boost state Republicans recently. "He's definitely not happy about it," spokesman Carlos Espinosa said Friday....
