    Tesla CEO Elon Musk appeared to respond to a report that had twins with one of his top executives. According to a report from Insider, court documents show he quietly had twins with Shivon Zilis last November. In April, Musk and Zilis filed a petition to change the names of the twins to “have their father’s last name and contain their mother’s last name as part of their middle name.” The petition was approved by a Texas judge. Insider noted the twins were born just weeks before Musk and Claire Boucher had their second child via surrogate. Zilis now holds...

    “I hope they both move on. At their best, they are each incredible,” Musk, who once dated Heard, tweeted Saturday. Musk’s tweet was in response to MIT research scientist and podcaster Lex Fridman who tweeted Friday: “My takeaways from Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard trial: 1. Fame is one hell of a drug (for some). 2. Psychiatrists & lawyers come in drastically varying levels of skill. 3. Lying to millions of people is something humans are capable of. 4. Love can be messy. 5. Mega pint of wine.”

    Based on this information, it appears that the breakdown of the barricades began at least 12 minutes before Trump's speech ended, by people who were over a mile and a half away from Trump. Although the loudspeaker system was massive, it is doubtful that the people bringing down the barricades could hear Trump from the loudspeaker system. Extremely vivid videos of the prelude to and a breach of barricades and entry into the Capitol Building are here and here on a YouTube channel that identifies "independent photojournalist Jon Farina" as the videographer. It does not appear that people in the...

    FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — Tuesday's State Board of Elections meeting started off as normal, but it ended with arguing, screaming, cursing and people storming out after the meeting. The fighting continued as LEX 18's Political Reporter Karolina Buczek stood in the hallway, waiting for an interview after the meeting. You can hear Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes yelling in a room, as Executive Director of State Board of Elections Jared Dearing told our crew, "it's a circus and chaos."

    Kentucky officials publicly released records Wednesday that show employees in the secretary of state’s office used the voter registration system to look up political rivals, state investigators and a range of political operatives. It is not clear in many instances why the office of Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes was looking up people and their personal information — political affiliation, every home address ever on file, some Social Security numbers — but it has led critics to conclude her office abused its access to the system to gain information about her political opponents and those involved in multiple investigations...

    LOUISVILLE- Republicans have called for a federal investigation into allegations that Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes misused voter data—but so far unsurprisingly— top Democrats in Kentucky are staying mum. When asked about the allegations Tuesday, Attorney General Andy Beshear said his office was looking into the claims. “Given that the allegations are very new and very fresh, I think it would be premature to comment any further but we are in possession of that letter.” he said. Mac Brown, Chair of the Republican Party of Kentucky, has called for a federal investigation into the claims as well as Dearing...

Grimes has also been a Clinton campaign surrogate in Iowa, speaking on behalf of the Democratic presidential nominee at the state’s annual Wing Ding dinner on Aug. 12. Clinton holds a wider polling margin in Ohio, where she leads Trump by nearly 5 points in a head-to-head with GOP nominee Donald Trump and by 4 percent in a four-way with Libertarian and Green Party candidates included, according to Real Clear Politics’ average...

    Brent Grimes' wife, Miko Grimes, is back to ripping the Dolphins — this time in a series of nasty tweets that included an anti-Semitic message targeted at Miami owner Stephen Ross. The Dolphins cut Grimes back in March, perhaps partially because of the actions of and criticisms coming from the cornerback's wife. The Bucs signed him shortly thereafter.

Grimes and Lundergan also shared Lexington attorney Robert "Coley" Stilz III, who was...

    Democratic Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes is promoting the love her job in her first re-election spot of the campaign. In the 30 second ad Grimes looks directly to the camera promoting her successes in her first term in office. Grimes nonchalantly talks about her run for U.S. Senate in the ad, and the negative ads run against her in the state. “The last few years have been noisy in Kentucky,” Grimes says in the ad. “A lot of attack ads. Believe me, I know.” “But, my job as Secretary of State is to make sure your vote is...

    LEXINGTON — After coming up well short of knocking off U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell in 2014, Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes is looking at her re-election bid as an interview for the job, and not a personal contest. Grimes faces GOP nominee Steve Knipper in the fall Election and she says she will rely on her experience in the office and focus on jobs in the General Election campaign. “It’s an office where I have a record of success,” Grimes told Pure Politics in Lexington on Wednesday. “Whether it be helping to have started over 100,000 new businesses since...

    LEXINGTON — Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes ended months of speculation Monday, telling a crowd of about 70 supporters that she will seek re-election this year rather than mount bids of governor or attorney general. Grimes had been linked to nearly every constitutional office as the filing deadline approached, but she officially launched her re-election campaign at the Lyric Theatre and Cultural Arts Center, the same place she jumpstarted her 2011 run for secretary of state. The 36-year-old Democrat had kept a low profile since her 15-point loss to U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell last fall, and she listed...

In her first television interview since Sen. Mitch McConnell routed her by 15 points last month, the Democratic Senate nominee declared that she will not be “bullied” by Paul, who is a heavy favorite to win a second Senate term if he’s allowed to stay on the ballot. “The law is clear,” Grimes told WHAS-TV in Louisville. “You can’t be on the ballot...
