    Georgia prosecutor Fani Willis and her former lover Nathan Wade are facing two ethics complaints from a conservative government watchdog group based on their court testimony on allegations they had an 'improper' affair. The American Accountability Foundation (AAF) is requesting that the Georgia state bar open disciplinary proceedings against the Fulton County DA and Wade for violations of the Georgia Rules of Professional Conduct. AAF is alleging Wade lied under oath about his relationship with Willis, and alleging that Willis admitted to keeping campaign money for personal use on the witness stand. "To ensure that the citizens of Fulton County...

    Texas Scorecard ^ | January 15, 2024 | Staff
    An obscure bureaucratic entity, buried deep within Texas A&M, is attempting to rewrite the rules for how governmental bodies make information available to the public. If successful, it could have dire implications for citizen oversight. At issue is a series of requests by the American Accountability Foundation, a non-partisan watchdog group, that attempted to learn more about the role of so-called “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion” initiatives at A&M’s medical school. Senate Bill 17, passed by the Texas Legislature last year, forbade these practices as of January 1 2024. During the December 11 meeting of the A&M “faculty senate,” Senior Associate...

    WASHINGTON — Stanford University law professor Pamela Karlan, best known for her 2019 testimony in favor of impeaching then-President Donald Trump, quietly left the Justice Department this month as a conservative group ratcheted up attacks on an “unethical” arrangement in which she continued to earn nearly $1 million a year from Stanford while working for the government. Karlan joined the department on Feb. 8, 2021, shortly after President Biden’s inauguration, and served about 17 months as principal deputy assistant attorney general for civil rights before she departed on July 1 with little fanfare. Karlan’s role was slated to last until...

    A group founded by former Vice President Mike Pence organized a letter from more than 60 activists, politicians and thought leaders.

    A person with knowledge of the conversation tells The Associated Press that the new Alliance of American Football spoke with Colin Kaepernick during its development about joining the league. But Kaepernick wanted $20 million or more to consider playing with the league that had its debut last weekend. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday because neither side has publicly acknowledged such talks. The Alliance says its mission is to provide opportunities for players not in the NFL to continue their careers, with a possibility they could entice NFL teams to sign them once the AAF season concludes at...

    Just eight weeks after playing its first games, the Alliance of American Football (AAF) will be suspending football operations by the end of Tuesday, according to sources. Tom Dundon effectively bought a majority stake in the league in mid-February, with the league announcing his commitment of $250 million. It later became clear that Dundon, who owns the Carolina Hurricanes, was funding the league on a week-to-week basis, with his approximate total commitment being $70 million to this point. After the deal with Dundon, sources say it became clear to league co-founders Charlie Ebersol and Bill Polian that Dundon’s objectives were...

    If Tim Tebow wants to make a return to football, it looks like he's finally got an offer on the table. The former Florida Gators quarterback would even get to potentially play in the state of Florida. Tebow's football offer comes from Steve Spurrier, who was officially named as the coach of the Orlando franchise in the Alliance of American Football on Saturday. Spurrier doesn't have any players yet, but it sounds like he would be very interested in adding Tebow. "That would be wonderful," Spurrier said on the Open Mike radio show Monday, via the Orlando Sentinel. "I think...

    President Trump’s assault on red tape has saved businesses nearly $4 billion per year compared with President Barack Obama’s pace of imposing regulations, a new study found Tuesday. Final rule costs during Mr. Trump’s first six months in office will cost U.S. businesses about $378 million per year, compared with $4.2 billion for the same period of Mr. Obama’s presidency, according to the conservative American Action Forum. “The results are substantial,” said Dan Goldbeck, an analyst at AAF who prepared the report. “New regulatory burdens are a fraction of those established under President Obama’s first six months; overall regulatory volume...
