    CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) - The Charleston Police Department is searching for Tammy Rena Jordan, 52, on warrants for stealing money from adults with special needs. Police say on May 18th, 2018, Jordan asked the victim for money to buy a soda at the Charleston Town Center Mall. The victim is severely handicapped and confined to a wheelchair. Police say the victim cannot access his wallet without assistance so he allowed Jordan to retrieve the money herself. Jordan then took a substantial amount of money from the victim’s wallet and fled toward the Transit Mall. ***PICTURE ON LINK****

    FULL TITLE: The rise of homeschooling in West Virginia, Crouse: 'I've seen a shift in how people view home school' CHARLESTON — As all eyes turned to public education during the historic statewide teacher strike, more parents are choosing to pull their students out of school and educate them at home. Enrolling a child in private school has traditionally been the most popular alternative to public school. But in recent years, data shows there has been a surge in the number of home-schooled students. “I’ve seen a shift in how people view homeschool, for sure,” said Kathie Hess Crouse. “Just...

    hat "blue wave" that critics of President Trump have been hoping will wash over him in the midterm congressional elections him may not be a likely thing after all. Last Tuesday's Republican Senate primaries in West Virginia, Ohio and Indiana offered no assurance that anti-Trump voters, including many in his own party, will rise up in November to rid themselves of the president's backers in Congress. In all three states, Republican candidates supporting Mr. Trump prevailed. The one senatorial candidate who ran without his backing lost, mostly because he was toxic in his state of West Virginia as a former...

    Actually the "Trumpies" did fine last evening producing three strong Trump/Conservative senate candidates to run against Democrats losers, Joe Manchin, Sherrod Brown & Joe Donnelley. Brown & Donnelley will lose their seats and Joe Manchin is hanging on the edge of defeat. As for Fake News & Polls...it was getting their egg in face time last, as they once again lied to West Virginia voters, in an attempt to get Blankenship elected as the primary winner.

    Internal Republican polls show ex-coal CEO and former convict Don Blankenship in the lead a day before West Virginia’s Republican Senate primary, prompting more GOP fears about a Blankenship surge. SNIP Some Republicans worry Blankenship’s controversial past could jeopardize their chances at unseating Manchin. In a last-ditch effort to suppress Blankenship, Trump on Monday urged voters to reject the former coal executive and instead vote for either Jenkins or Morrisey on Tuesday. “To the great people of West Virginia we have, together, a really great chance to keep making a big difference,” the president wrote on Twitter. “Problem is, Don...

    Letter calls for suspension of aid to the Palestinians Members of Congress hope to compel the State Department to disclose the amount of U.S. aid money the Palestinian Authority has given to convicted terrorists and their families, according to a congressional communication viewed by the Free Beacon that calls for a complete freeze in U.S. aid to the Palestinian government. Reps. David McKinley (R., W.V.) and John Ratcliffe (R., Texas) are circulating a letter to Republican offices urging them to join an effort to compel the State Department to detail the amount of taxpayer money that has been used by...

    A lawyer who led the fight against Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate, eventually winning the Hobby Lobby case before the Supreme Court, won confirmation by the Senate Tuesday to a federal appeals court. Senators voted 50-47 to confirm Stuart Kyle Duncan to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which covers Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi. Only one Democrat, Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, broke with his party to support Mr. Duncan. Other Democrats voiced opposition to Mr. Duncan as an “unfit ideologue” who fought women’s access to reproductive healthcare. They also said his defense of state laws requiring photo-ID to vote,...

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) said on Monday that he will vote for CIA Director Mike Pompeo to be the next secretary of State, making him the second Democrat to support Pompeo's nomination. "After meeting with Mike Pompeo, discussing his foreign policy perspectives, & considering his distinguished time as CIA Director & his exemplary career in public service, I will vote to confirm Mike Pompeo to be our next Secretary of State," Manchin said in a tweet. Pompeo likely already had the votes to be confirmed by the full Senate. With Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) expected to oppose him, Pompeo needed...

    When the news broke on Tuesday night that CIA Director Mike Pompeo had met with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, I was not surprised. Pompeo had long ago established his importance to this administration and his understanding of geopolitics. Pompeo’s skills are precisely why the president nominated him to be the next Secretary of State—and why it’s so absurd that Democrats are reluctant to confirm him.Considering the increasing gridlock in the Senate over President Donald Trump’s nominees, this is a good time to remind our Democratic friends of Pompeo’s many qualifications—qualifications that have only increased since he earned Democratic support to become CIA...

    GOP infighting broke out again Monday as West Virginia Republican Senate candidate Don Blankenship compared Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to a “Swamp captain” and “the Russians.” As Politico reports, Blankenship, who owns a lot of coal in the state, was incarcerated for a year after a 2010 explosion in one of his mines and the GOP establishment has not embraced his Senate candidacy — reportedly campaigning against Blankenship with a series of attack ads purchased by a political action committee (PAC) named Mountain Family PAC. Blankenship defines his war as one with McConnell, whom he encourages to stay in...

    The speech was written. A cast of relatable Americans with emotional stories was standing by to reinforce the message. But President Donald Trump was in no mood to play along. “The hell with it,” Trump said, recounting the scene with his aides to a West Virginia crowd last week, Trump tossed the staff-prepared remarks on tax cuts in the air and ducked as the paper fluttered to the floor. “I said, ‘This is boring, come on.’ Tell it like it is.” This president has never been one to stick to a script, but that abandoned speech illustrates a new phase...

    West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice claims he’s talked to Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin about him switching parties. President Donald Trump needs Manchin’s vote in the Senate, Justice said Thursday on “Fox & Friends.” “Joe and I had discussions along those lines,” Justice, a Republican, said. “I wish Joe was a Republican to tell you the truth,” he said of the West Virginia senator. “But to just tell it like it is, Joe’s got to do his thing and I’ve surely got to do mine and the president has got to do his. We need Joe’s vote. “And to be perfectly...
