    The State Department, under Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton, created an arrangement for her longtime aide and confidante Huma Abedin to work for private clients as a consultant while serving as a top adviser in the department. Ms. Abedin did not disclose the arrangement — or how much income she earned — on her financial report. It requires officials to make public any significant sources of income. The disclosure of the agreement that Ms. Abedin made with the State Department comes as her husband, former Representative Anthony D. Weiner, a Democrat, prepares for a mayoral run in New York City. Politico...

    After last week's revelation in this newspaper that former Council President Peggy Wilson had met with consultants for a bid to seek the Orleans' Chief Executive post, sources reveal to The Louisiana Weekly that State Senator Francis Heitmeier is also considering a bid for Mayor. ...

Yet, with a February election looming, and most of the city's population gone, perhaps permanently, the former Council President's quest seems less...
  • Blaming President Bush; our readers weigh in

    09/02/2005 9:39:26 AM PDT · by Lacey · 33 replies · 1,734+ views I bring this up because I saw a lot of ambulances, police cars, and fire equipment flooded in the Katrina footage. It will be interesting to see what the NO preplanning was since their director of emergency response is all over the tv blaming Bush. We went through Frances (cat 4) and three weeks later Jeanne (cat 3) last year and I think Palm Beach County and Jeb Bush did a pretty good job. It's up to local and state people to tell the feds what they need and to run the emergency command centers, not just throw their...
