  • Anti-LGBT politician resigns after being 'caught having sex with man in his office'

    An Ohio lawmaker who routinely touted his Christian faith and anti-LGBT views has resigned after being caught having sex with a man in his office.

The right-wing legislator, who pushed “family values”, was reportedly witnessed having sex with a man inside his office who was not employed by the legislator.

    It appears that crime is so low in Detroit that police are left trying to arrest each other. On the East side of Detroit, the 12th Precinct sent in a team of special ops officers to pretend to be drug dealers. At the same time, the 11th Precinct sent in officers pretending to a drug buyers. The rest will long be the subject of law enforcement legend. Sources say that both undercover teams pulled their guns in attempting to arrest the other and ordered the other team to drop to the ground. That is when the rest of the special...

    Kathy Griffin was booed by the crowd at her Dublin performance on Wednesday, November 8 after she mistakenly included Ireland as part of the United Kingdom. She stated it was nice “being in the United Kingdom,” and seemed genuinely shocked when the friendly crowd suddenly turned to her booing and catcalling. Griffin became so startled she had difficulty continuing with her routine, The New York Times reported. Most of the Irish people at the show in Vicar Street clearly believed Griffin, an Irish American, should have known better. She has been a frequent visitor there and visited her grandmother’s hometown...

    US District Judge Gloria J. Navarro said in court today that she made "an inadvertent mistake" in removing five potential jurors the defense wanted to keep. Navarro then acted to remove eight potential jurors the prosecution said they wanted to keep. Today there were 57 potential jurors in the courtroom, a group different from yesterday. A scratchy voiced Cliven Bundy addressed the potential jurors. "Good morning and thank you for coming. I appreciate it very much", Bundy said. Judge Navarro has informed potential jurors of the trial schedule, telling them to expect the trial to last into February of next...

He appeared to be holding a weapon. The “robber” was actually actor Jim Duff, who was filming a scene for a movie. But Schroeter didn’t know that. “Drop the...

    Former FBI agent Manny Gomez claimed on MSNBC on Monday that hunters use suppressors so that deer cannot hear the gunshots. WATCH: (VIDEO-AT-LINK) Firearm owners actually use suppressors to prevent hearing loss, and even with a suppressor, a firearm would still be loud enough to spook a deer or other wild game. “Sportsmen, hunters would make an argument that they need that so that their target, whether it’s a deer, etc. don’t hear the shot,” Gomez claimed, “but numerous other sportsmen have shot from muskets–when the founding fathers started the Second Amendment–up until now successfully killed game animals without the...

    The monument in the heart of Moscow was supposed to be a tribute to Mikhail Kalashnikov, the creator of the AK-47 assault rifle. Unfortunately, things went wrong, spectacularly so. The etching on the plinth was not of a Kalashnikov but the StG 44 rifle used by the Nazis during WWII. The mistake was spotted by arms experts, the BBC reported. It left the authorities having to use an angle grinder to remove the offending image.

David Meade, who claimed the world is ending Saturday when a mysterious planet collides with Earth, is now backtracking on the calamitous claim. Meade said the world won’t end on September 23 after all, but instead, Saturday will only mark the beginning of a series of catastrophic events to occur over several weeks. “The world is not ending, but the world...

Monaghan's owner Jack Milani said the men demanded cash from the register and then took off. Some of the off-duty officers attending the retirement party gave chase and arrested the two men nearby, the department said. Police charged Joseph McInnis...

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has a message for Donald Trump about BuzzFeed blogger McKay Coppins, and it's one that other Republican officials might heed when liberal journalists come looking to "humanize" them. "This nervous geek isn't fit to tie the Donald's wingtips," Palin told Breitbart News after Trump ripped Coppins for lampooning him with what he alleged were out-of-context quotes and boorish behavior at Trump's Florida resort. "Don't ever give him attention again."Coppins tricked Trump's advisers into thinking he would profile Trump as a potential "major" GOP 2016 presidential hopeful. As Breitbart News reported, the Jan. 5 email...
