    Seventy years ago, when Arlene McCardle was a 19-year-old on the cusp of 20, she entered what later would be known as the Pillsbury Bake-Off, making the contest deadline just in time. She became Wisconsin's sole junior finalist on the strength of her recipe. McCardle baked her Venetian Cocoanut Cake at the competition in December 1952 at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York — a four-layer sponge cake with alternating layers of pudding-like vanilla and chocolate fillings, topped with toasted coconut. (Cocoanut was an old variation on coconut still in use into the midcentury.) Pillsbury published the junior winner's recipe...

    An Ohio cupcake saleswoman has been arrested after running a fraud by stealing a dead infant's identity for the last two decades. Ava Virginia Misseldine, 49, was arrested on Thursday in Utah, where she'd moved from Ohio in the last year, according to an affidavit. She was charged with using the dead child's name - Brie Bourgeois - to get a job, a pilot's license, a passport, college admission and $1.5million in COVID-19 bailout cash. During her time in Ohio, she'd been praised for running the Koko Tea Salon & Bakery and was even featured on the Food Network's The...

    Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker (R) has vetoed a plan by Democrats that would allow tens of thousands of illegal aliens in the state to obtain driver’s licenses. After Democrats in the Massachusetts state legislature passed the plan with wide majorities, the legislation ended up on Baker’s desk. Baker said he vetoed the plan because it “significantly increases the risk that noncitizens will be registered to vote.”

    Tech executive Rodney Joffe fed the Alfa Bank hoax to the FBI via two distinct routes, testimony from yesterday’s proceedings in the Michael Sussmann criminal case indicates. This apparent circular reporting further cements Special Counsel John Durham’s Section 1001 false statement case against Sussmann by highlighting the significance of Sussmann’s alleged lie to former FBI General Counsel James Baker. Sussmann, who is in the middle of week two of his trial in a D.C. federal court, was charged last fall in a one-count indictment with lying to Baker when he provided Baker two flash drives and several “white papers” purporting...

    Emails obtained via an open records request provide a picture of the politics behind the players who formulated and fed the Alfa Bank theory via Michael Sussmann to the FBI.While Dagon may have been an expert in the data crunching, emails recently obtained by The Federalist from Georgia Tech reveal Dagon was something more—he was an anti-Trump, Russia-collusion conspiracy theorist.Dagon’s name first became connected with the Alfa Bank story when Special Counsel John Durham indicted Michael Sussmann two months ago, charging the Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer with lying to FBI General Counsel James Baker.What the Indictment Says about the Alfa...

    I’m on the road the next few days (wedding season) and will be providing updates on the Sussmann trial that have more transcripts and less discussion from your humble author. Today, it’s the morning testimony of former FBI general counsel James Baker. Yesterday we discussed how Sussmann reached out - not on behalf of a client - yo share the purported Alfa Bank/Trump data. Here he discusses what occurred during that fateful meeting in September 2016. As to whether Sussmann lied? Baker is “100% confident” he did He repeated what Sussmann said about not being there on behalf of a...

    The Evidence Thus Far. In this post I’ll be detailing the evidence, testimony, and documents we know – or can assume – Special Counsel John Durham has obtained during his investigation. By no means is this an exhaustive list; certainly, he has more information, documents, correspondence, etc. than we realize. There are unknown witnesses who have testified before a grand jury or have been interviewed by Durham’s team. There are issues he’s investigating out of the public knowledge. His investigation is remarkably tight-lipped. As far as we know, they aren’t leaking to the press for publicity or to put pressure...

    The Boston Police Department has put the most vocal critic of the city’s vaccine mandate on leave amid an internal-affairs investigation a week ahead of the jab deadline. Sgt. Shana Cottone, the head of the recently formed group Boston First Responders United, is now on administrative leave from the department, the Boston Police Department confirmed. A spokesman said it’s due to an open internal affairs investigation, so no further information is available. Cottone said BPD officers came to her house and took her badge and gun Saturday morning. “They’re trying to come after me — to silence me,” Cottone told...

    The day before Christmas Eve, a devastated but headstrong state worker strode into the Department of Developmental Services office in Springfield to collect her belongings and say goodbye to colleagues. ... Late Tuesday afternoon, the state government chose Coughlin’s fate for her, once again denying her plea for a medical exemption under Gov. Charlie Baker’s COVID vaccine mandate. In the penultimate blow from the state, Coughlin is now suspended without pay for 10 days. If Coughlin does not receive a second vaccine dose within that time frame, she’ll be fired, according to a warning letter from the Executive Office of...

    Leading doctors in Massachusetts are now recommending that residents wear masks in all public indoor spaces regardless of whether they are vaccinated as a growing number of states, but so far not Massachusetts, return to the mask mandates that were ubiquitous earlier in the pandemic. Dr. Carole Allen, president of the Massachusetts Medical Society, said Tuesday that the growing number of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations point to “an alarming upward trend” that is straining the state’s health care system. The Department of Public Health on Monday reported 11,078 new cases from over the weekend, and hospitalizations from the virus climbed...

    BOSTON — Massachusetts is partnering with as many as 20 other states in an effort to create a shared digital system through which residents can prove their COVID-19 vaccination status. Gov. Charlie Baker spoke about the development effort Monday during a radio interview. He explained the plan centers around a QR code — a digitally encoded pattern designed to be scanned from a device — that residents can display on a smartphone. Those codes could be scanned by businesses, venues or others to verify vaccination status.

    Massachusetts could soon roll out a digital COVID-19 vaccination passport, Gov. Charlie Baker said Monday afternoon on GBH News’ Boston Public Radio. Massachusetts is part of a coalition of states — somewhere between 15 and 20, Baker estimated — working to develop the technology. Baker displayed his personal QR code, attesting to his vaccination status, to hosts Jim Braude and Margery Eagan. “This is my proof that I’ve been vaccinated. It’s easy to access, it’s a universal standard and we’ve been working with a bunch of other states,” Baker said, adding the passport could launch “soon.” ... Last April, Baker...

    GOP gubernatorial candidate Geoff Diehl has landed a big deal endorsement. Former President Donald Trump is throwing his support behind the conservative candidate in a race where rivals are still lining up and Gov. Charlie Baker has yet to declare. “Baker is bad on crime, disrespects our police, does nothing for our Veterans, has totally botched the Vaccination rollout, presided over the collapse of the MBTA, and has seen crime go to record levels,” Trump said in his endorsement Tuesday night. Diehl has branded himself as a conservative counterweight in a race where most of the other candidates swing far...

    There is a long game and a short game going on in special counsel John Durham’s indictment of Democratic Party lawyer Michael Sussmann on a false-statements count. The short of it is this: A false statement was allegedly made by Sussmann to the FBI’s then-general counsel, James Baker, on Sept. 19, 2016. In federal law, the false-statement crime has a five-year statute of limitations, meaning it had to be charged by last Sunday (Sept. 19, 2021). Consequently, even if Durham would probably have preferred to wait until his full investigation was concluded before filing indictments, by delaying beyond Sunday, he...
