The video sparked controversy after the spa defended its policy of allowing transgender customers in its facilities, the Los Angeles Times reported.

    I am trying to find video of Obama saying that. It is widely acknowledged that he did say it on June 13, 2008 in Philadelphia, but YouTube, Google and all of the MSM have carefully scrubbed the net of this video. Soon, they will deny he ever said it. Just like that video of Al Gore saying that the North Polar Ice Cap would be completely gone by 2013.It's GONE - never to be seen again. I found an archive of Obummer speeches, but it's also been removed from there: ObamaDownloads.com

    As he arrived for a campaign event in Minnesota on Saturday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) was confronted by investigative journalist Laura Loomer about the numerous domestic violence allegations that have been brought against him by two different women. Loomer questioned Ellison about a 2005 police report filed by Amy Alexander, a Democrat activist who he had a relationship with. With the police report in hand, Loomer asked Ellison to explain why the police report says there was a domestic violence call to Alexander's house, despite the fact that Ellison has denied the allegations.
