    Rep. Kathleen Rice has become the first New York Democrat in Congress to join mounting calls for Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign after three women accused him of offensive behavior. "The time has come. The Governor must resign," Rice, a former district attorney, tweeted Monday night. Recent Stories from ABC News Rice was once a close ally of Cuomo's. In the 2010 race for state attorney general, Rice was widely believed to be Cuomo's preferred pick for the role, but he ended up endorsing her opponent, Eric Schneiderman, right before the primary. In 2013, Rice was appointed by Cuomo as...

Kathleen Rice. The New York congresswomen had been jockeying for the seat and lobbying colleagues behind the scenes, but Rice ultimately won in a vote of 46-13, Politico reported Friday.

    Two House Democrats have sent a letter to bar associations in Washington, D.C., and Virginia asking them to open an ethics investigation into Attorney General William Barr. Democratic Reps. Ted Lieu (Calif.) and Kathleen Rice (N.Y.) wrote to the associations on Thursday, a day after Barr's contentious hearing on Capitol Hill during which he defended his handling of special counsel Robert Mueller's report. "By deceiving Congress and the American people, who vested their trust in both the Office of the Attorney General and the Department of Justice at large, Attorney General Barr must be subject to a professional review for...

    The Office of House Employment Counsel brokered a settlement in 2006 over allegations that Rep. Gregory Meeks fired a staffer in retaliation for reporting that she was sexually assaulted at a business tied to a campaign contributor, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned. Andrea Payne, then a congressional aide in the New York Democrat’s Queens office, filed a complaint with the Office of Compliance, and Meeks fired her weeks later. He admitted that Payne’s termination did not have to do with the quality of her work, according to her lawsuit.

    Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-N.Y.) tore into House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for her comments on NBC's "Meet the Press" earlier this week, saying Pelosi "ceded the moral high ground," by praising Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) amid sexual misconduct allegations. “I think that her comments on Sunday set women back and — quite frankly, our party back — decades,” Rice told reporters Wednesday, according to Politico. “I think that we ceded the moral high ground on Sunday when our leader said on ‘Meet the Press’ that John Conyers was an icon and we don’t even know who these women are,...

    Juanita Broaddrick, hello? Or does the name Paula Jones perhaps ring a bell? CNN political analyst Karoun Demirjian tried this morning to downplay the seriousness of Bill Clinton’s sexual misconduct compared to that alleged of Roy Moore. In Moore’s case, said Demirjian, “those were children.” [To her credit, host Alisyn Camerota jumped in and suggested “underage” instead of “children.”] As for Clinton, the only specific case Demirjian mentioned was that of Monica Lewinsky. Demirjian described it as an “affair” that “might have been consensual.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    A liberal New York Times columnist has written that she believes Juanita Broaddrick’s allegation that Bill Clinton raped her. The headline of Michelle Goldberg’s current New York Times column is “I believe Juanita.” Goldberg explains: “Of the Clinton accusers, the one who haunts me is Broaddrick . . . Put simply, I believe her.” Adds Goldberg, “it’s fair to conclude that because of Broaddrick’s allegations, Bill Clinton no longer has a place in decent society.” Get the rest of the story here.

    Democrat Kathleen Rice is as fed up with Washington D.C. as the rest of the country. During an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper Wednesday night, Rice fumed about the double standard between the private sector and taxpayer funded politicians being protected on Capitol Hill. "It's that kind of response that leads everyday Americans to say, 'What is going on in Washington? Why is everyone in the private sector held accountable and yet when the same kind of behavior is exposed in Washington D.C., they circle the wagons and protect their own?'" Rice said. "I for one am not going to...

    A second Democratic lawmaker called on Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., to step down Tuesday over sexual misconduct allegations hours after Conyers' former deputy chief of staff detailed three occasions when he made unwanted advances toward her. Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., said in a statement that while she had looked up to Conyers for decades, "I believe these women, I see the pattern and there is only one conclusion – Mr. Conyers must resign." Jayapal joined Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., as the only two lawmakers who have said Conyers should resign from Congress. In a statement of her own last week,...

    'Tis the season . . . to pick the winners and losers in state politics during a very turbulent 2009 -- and what a banner year for losers it has been. The people of New York are, again, the biggest losers -- burdened as they are with "leaders" who raised taxes and fees $8 billion during one of the worst recessions ever, a dysfunctional Legislature, and an unelected governor who plumbed record-low approval ratings in the polls. The annual list was put together with the help of public officials, government bureaucrats, lobbyists, union leaders and journalists, all of whom talked...

Al Franken (D-MN) and Rep.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Sunday chided NBC's Chuck Todd for not asking her about tax reform during his interview of her that focused mostly on sexual misconduct claims made against members of Congress. Todd was set to close the interview, airing on "Meet the Press," without asking about the Republican tax reform plan, when Pelosi cut him off. "You mean we're not even going to talk about taxes?" Pelosi said. "You see, you have fallen into the place, where they [Republicans] are doing something that is going to increase the debt enormously, it's going to be a job...

    The Democrats seem to enjoy gloating about the hot mess that is the Republican Party these days. Former GOP presidents warning the president about the people he surrounds himself with; sitting Republican U.S. senators calling the president unstable and unqualified; and a former GOP speaker of the house saying "there is no Republican Party. The president isn't a Republican." And Democrats' friends in the mainstream media have kindly created an echo chamber that makes them think that they are always right and the Republicans are a bunch of sexist, racist, whack jobs. So why aren't they winning? They must be...

    Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) announced he is stepping aside as the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee pending an investigation into allegations of sexual harassment. “After careful consideration and in light of the attention drawn by recent allegations made against me, I have notified the Democratic Leader of my request to step aside as Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee during the investigation of these matters," he said in a statement on Sunday. “I deny these allegations, many of which were raised by documents reportedly paid for by a partisan alt-right blogger. I very much look forward...
  • Democrat Congresswoman Says NRA Membership A Domestic Security Threat

    Late last week, U.S. Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., tweeted that the NRA is increasingly becoming a domestic security threat. Her exact words: I'm just going to say it. #NRA & @DLoesch are quickly becoming domestic security threats under President Trump. We can't ignore that. Rice’s proclamation does two things: First, it makes her but the latest in a long line of liberal politicians who have decided to attack the NRA instead of dealing with examples of leftist-inspired violence uncovered by the NRA. Secondly, it insults the whole of NRA's membership, as the NRA is not an abstraction but a...

    As you likely know, in the world of the liberal mind, many things are completely backward and upside-down. To the liberal mind, truth is a lie, and lies are the truth; good is evil, and evil is good; those who speak the truth are speaking hate, and those who speak hatred are practicing “tolerance.” I often wonder if they see their blatant disconnect from reality, and I’m certain that at some level—however deeply it may be buried in their consciences—they do. So it is with the members of the radical homosexual movement. In all the things I write, doing what...

    There was a lot of estrogen flying at the Cradle of Aviation Museum yesterday, as Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton administered the oath of office to Nassau District Attorney Kathleen Rice, the first woman to hold the top law enforcement job on Long Island. "The torch has been passed to a new generation," said Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi, pausing to allow the applause to crescendo before adding "of women," which brought down the house of more than a thousand supporters who had come to the inauguration of the region's newest star. As Rice repeated the oath after Clinton, the many...
