    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) An Oklahoma state senator was booked Thursday on child prostitution charges for allegedly hiring a 17-year-old boy for sex, leading to calls for his resignation and a separate internal investigation into his years of work with a youth program.

He was released after about two hours on a $100,000 bond. "I have no comment at this time,...

    There was no press honeymoon for President Trump during his first month in office. A meticulous new study by the Media Research Center finds that 88 percent of the broadcast news coverage of Mr. Trump and his team was hostile during the first 30 days of office. The coverage was intense and plentiful. The study, which analyzed both tone and content for evening newscasts on ABC, NBC and CBS, found that the Big Three networks produced 16 hours of coverage on the new president and his staff. That is over half 54 percent of their total coverage for...

Police arrived at the scene to alert the union protestors that they were in the wrong place, but the activistswho had already been...

    Protests breaking out at GOP town hall meetings could stop Republican lawmakers from fully repealing the Affordable Care Act, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) said on Thursday.

"They're putting pressure on congressmen and there's not a counter-effort to steel the spine of some of these congressmen in tossup districts around the country," he continued. Brooks said that Republican lawmakers might not...

On Trump's proposal to impose term limits on Congress, McConnell said, "It will not be on the agenda in the Senate." McConnell has been a long-standing opponent of term limits, as NPR's Susan Davis reports. "I would say we have term limits now they're called elections." McConnell also threw some cold water on Trump's infrastructure plans, calling it not a top priority. McConnell did say repealing Obamacare is a "pretty high item on our...

One after another, once unassailable Democrats like Gov. Mario M. Cuomo, Gov. Ann W. Richards of Texas, Representative Dan Rostenkowski of Chicago and Senators James Sasser of Tennessee and Harris Wofford of Pennsylvania fell to little-known Republican challengers.

    With two elections still too close to call, Democrats have lost power in three states, including traditionally blue Vermont. Going into Election Day, Republicans made up a historically large 31-18 majority of governors. (There's one independent, Alaska's Bill Walker.) In Missouri, Eric Greitens won a Democratic-held open seat to replace term-limited Jay Nixon. In Vermont, the normally blue state opted for a moderate Republican governor, Phil Scott, to replace Peter Shumlin, who chose not to run for re-election. And in New Hampshire, Republican Chris Sununu flipped the Democratic-held governorship that's currently held by Maggie Hassan, who's in a tight race...

The two viral videos about past presidents speaking in very colorful language helps put the shocking Trump video from 11 years ago into a little better perspective. Not only do men get a little raunchy when chatting with peers behind closed doors, but women do too. The faux outrage of Donald Trump's locker room...

    Over the weekend CNBC learned a page on Facebook called Vote Out Every Republican That Opposes Trump was created, and members like Diana Orrock, Republican National Committeewoman for Nevada, are promoting the page in their status posts encouraging followers not to vote for the candidates who they feel have abandoned the GOP presidential nominee.

I have always been a principles-over-party individual," she said. "I am no longer endorsing Joe Heck in the Senate race," explained Orrock. "How...

    Alternate headline: “Ditka wraps up 2020 Republican nomination.” “I think it’s a problem,” Ditka said. “Anybody who disrespects this country and the flag.

My choice is that I like this country, I respect our flag, and I don’t see all the atrocities going on in this country that people say are going on.” That’s as pure as nationalism gets. What does he think of Richard Sherman’s press...

Reince is warning those who dont support Donald Trump theyll need to watch their backs in the future.

From Newsmax: Republican National Committee head Reince Priebus says there may be consequences in the future for GOP presidential primary candidates who dont stick with their pledge to support the...
