Did Fox cover this?

Annette Bosworth, 42, a doctor from Sioux Falls, was charged with six counts each of perjury and filing false documents and accused of falsely claiming she was gathering nominating petition signatures in South Dakota when she was really in the Philippines, the South Dakota Attorney General's Office said.

Clayton Walker, 33, of Rapid City, also faces six counts each of perjury and filing false documents. Walker had been running an independent campaign for the U.S. Senate seat, but had been removed from the November ballot after a challenge to his nominating petitions.

"The election complaints received by the Secretary of State involve conduct that is serious, deliberate and must be addressed in order to preserve the integrity of our elections," South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley said in a statement.

Mike Rounds, a former two-term governor, won Tuesday's Republican primary with more than 55 percent of the vote. Bosworth finished fourth with 5.75 percent. Rounds will face Democrat Rick Weiland in the November election.

In a news conference posted on the Argus Leader newspaper's website, Bosworth said there was no criminal intent to deceive. She said she believed the charges were a "political prosecution" by Jackley, a Republican, who had been appointed by Rounds.

Reuters was not able to reach Bosworth through a phone number associated with her Senate campaign.

Each of the felony charges carries a possible maximum sentence of two years in prison and/or a $4,000 fine, the attorney general's office said.

An initial court date was scheduled for June 23.

his is classic O'Reilly, stick your foot in your mouth making a stupid comment, then after someone calls him on it, slam them for reporting it and call them pinheads, even though he claims to never call anyone names or do personal attacks. And they were right, nothing they said was not true.

O’Reilly has repeatedly observed this week that Bowe Bergdahl's father looks Muslim and hasn't backed down from it. A CNN guest took a shot at him over it, and anchor Carol Costello didn't dispute any of what he said, so O'Reilly went after both of them on his show Thursday night.

Rolling Stone's Matthew Farwell told Baldwin O'Reilly's comment was disgusting and said O'Reilly hasn't done anything dangerous in his life. O'Reilly shot back that he's either uninformed or a liar, and cited his past reporting career, and blasted Costello, saying she "obviously doesn't know what she's talking about."

Laura Ingraham told him that if the liberal media doesn't target people like them, "they're gonna have to actually speak about what this means for our country" and they can't have that. She agreed that it was odd and bizarre to hear Bergdahl's father speaking Arabic and Pashto in the White House Rose Garden.

O’Reilly called Farwell a "pinhead" and claimed that Costello "has an ethical obligation as a journalist to challenge that kind of stuff," before mocking her for just letting it slide.

Which is just laughable, coming from the 2nd most biased right-wing hack in all of cable news, who violates the rules of journalism every night. All they did was quote O'Reilly, word for word, and O'Reilly slammed them for doing it. That's not journalism, and O'Reilly is not a journalist.

to get to the bottom of this?

Eric Cantor, the second-ranking Republican in the House, announced Wednesday that he will resign his position as majority leader after losing his primary bid.

"It is with great humility that I do so, knowing the tremendous honor it has been to hold this position," said Cantor, who spoke to reporters after formally announcing his resignation to House Republicans in a closed-door meeting.

Urging Republicans to "put minor differences aside" and elect a GOP House, he promised to continue to be "a champion for conservatives across the nation who are dedicated to preserving liberty and providing opportunity."

His resignation from the post is effective July 31, but Republicans will hold the election to replace him on June 19, an aide said.

A Queens Republican operative, accused of pocketing $25,000 as part of a failed scheme to help state Sen. Malcolm Smith rig last years mayoral race, was so boozed up when he took the cash that he thought he was being paid for legal consulting services, a lawyer claimed Thursday.
Leo Ahern, a lawyer for ex-Queens GOP Vice Chairman Vincent Tabone, accused the government of entrapment. He told a federal jury his client had one too many vodka tonics with a politically connected group at Sparks Steak House in Midtown on Valentines Day 2013. It was then, Ahern claimed, that an undercover FBI agent and a wire-wearing, crooked developer-turned-informant walked Tabone outside to a parked Audi and paid him the cash.
The Rockland County developer was Moses Stern, whom the feds say Smith one of the states most powerful Democrats turned to for money and help in a $200,000 bribery scheme to get the Republican ballot for mayor.
[Tabone] had six or seven vodka toxics without eating, Ahern told the jury in White Plains federal court.He was hoping to be retained [by Stern] as a real estate lawyer or a political consultant.
Ahern said tapes of the exchange will show his client could barely talk when he took the cash. He also said Tabone sought contact information from the undercover agent he knew as Raj, so he could send retainer papers and make everything up and up. Ahern claimed Raj gave Tabone a business card but later took it back.
Tabone was then an aide for then-mayoral hopeful John Catsimatidis. He is on trial on corruption charges along with Smith (D-Queens) and former Councilman Dan Halloran (R-Queens).

I Love this stuff!!!!!!!!!!

Once again, an academic study of the American electorate has found that "Fox News Republicans are the most uninformed." This new survey was conducted by the The Brookings Institution along with the Public Religion Research Institute. What's different about this study is that it does not merely pit Republicans against Democrats and Independents. It distinguishes between Republicans who regularly watch Fox News and those who don't. And the conclusions reveal that Fox News Republicans are even more uninformed and extreme in their views than their non-fox viewing comrades in the same party.

What this tells us is that Fox News is polluting the Republicans who tune in to the network with reporting and commentary that is biased, misleading, and downright false. The ideological corruption is evident in some basic political differences between the Foxies and the Foxless. For instance, the DREAM Act was drafted to permit undocumented residents who came to the U.S. as children, and either completed college or served in the military, to obtain temporary residency status and eventually apply for citizenship. This bill is supported by a 62% majority of Foxless Republicans, but only 42% of GOP Foxies. Likewise, the campaign to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour is supported by a majority of 56% of the Foxless, but only 33% of the Foxies. In both cases the Foxless Republicans are more closely aligned with the electorate at large. It is the Foxies who hold the extremist position on the fringes of the far right.

The study asks the question: Does Fox News cause ignorance, or do ignorant viewers prefer Fox News? The answer is not particularly clear cut and is likely a combination of the two. However, the real problems for the GOP come into the equation when the party tries to evaluate the opinions of their constituents as represented by the folks at Fox News. It's clear that the Fox version of Republican views are far removed from reality. The study notes that party strategists may think that the Foxy...

If anyone is ever wondering just how restless the natives are out there and to what extent the right has managed to get the masses whipped up, whether it be from watching Faux "news," or listening to right-wing hate talk radio, look no further than the audience at C-SPAN's morning call-in show, Washington Journal.

I don't know what the average age of their audience is, but I'm guessing it makes Bill O'Reilly's audience look young after listening to enough of them over the years.

This is what happens to your brain after too large of a dose of right-wing media. Here's what a caller from New York who identified himself as a member of the "tea party" told host Greta Wodele Brawner.

Boehner is a liberal. Cantor is a liberal. We have two principle parties and the leadership of both parties are liberals. That's why this country is in such a mess. Because liberals destroy everything that they touch.

Well, in 2010, didn't they promise to defund Obamacare? Have they done that? No. Of course not. If we had true conservative leadership in the House, they would defund Obamacare, the Department of Education, the Department of Energy, the EPA. Have they done any of that?

No, because they are liberals.

The "tea party leaning" Republican (otherwise known as a Republican) from Texas who came in behind him agreed completely with what he said about party leadership and proceeded to fearmonger over all of the immigrants who are "taking over" their state and they're "being forced to educate them" and how horrible it is that her daughter works in a school in Houston where most of the kids are Hispanic.

Obama had absolutely nothing to do with Cantor losing the primaries to a Tea Party nut loon.

A new poll released Tuesday by PPP found that by a nearly two to one margin (54%-28%), the American people are strongly siding with President Obama's decision not to have sent combat troops back into Iraq.

Only 16% of Americans would support sending combat troops to help deal with the crisis in Iraq, compared to 74% who are opposed. There's a bipartisan consensus on that issue with with Republicans (28/57), Democrats (10/86), and independents (9/86) all strongly opposed to sending combat troops.

Asked specifically whose vision they agreed with more about having US troops in Iraq between Obama (no troops under any circumstances) and John McCain (troops should have remained in Iraq after 2011), voters side with Obama by a 54/28 spread. In addition to Democrats strongly siding with Obama's perspective, independents (53/28) and Republicans (49/30) do as well.

O'Reilly also has the same position as McCain on leaving troops in Iraq, so the majority of Americans also disagree with Bill O'Reilly.

People aren't buying what O'Reilly and the Republicans are selling on Iraq. They are blaming the violence on the withdrawal of American troops, but 67% of Americans think the conflict is rooted in centuries of internal conflict that was exacerbated by the Bush administration's decision to invade Iraq.

Americans overwhelmingly support providing intelligence to the Iraqi government (56%-30%), and a major international diplomatic effort (52%-30%) to stabilize Iraq.

It turns out that the American people aren't about to get fooled again by the same lies that got the country into Iraq in the first place. O'Reilly and the Republican Party are playing a politically dangerous game by trying to blame President Obama for the wave of violence in Iraq. Instead of blaming Obama, their attacks are reminding the American people that it was the GOP who lied to them and got the nation into a war of choice.

A war Bill O'Reilly supported 100 percent, and even called people who opposed it un-American traitors.

The American people don't want combat troops back in Iraq because Iraq belongs to the Iraqis. President Obama did not lose Iraq because Iraq never belonged to the United States. It is up to the Iraqis to stabilize their country, and resolve their internal differences. The neo-con war agenda has never been less popular than it is today.

The 275 troops that Obama sent to Iraq to secure US facilities and personnel was a smart decision. If the president didn't send the extra security and something happened, Republicans would be screaming about another Benghazi. However, there is a big difference between sending a few hundred troops to keep Americans secure, and sending hundreds of thousands of troops to do the Iraqi government's fighting for them.

The Republican era of war is over, and Obama's decision to not send combat troops back to Iraq is a reminder of why so Americans voted twice for him to be president.

Jon Stewart took on the latest news from Iraq and had some tough words in particular for "America's tragedy herpe." Yes, Stewart called out Dick Cheney for having the temerity to criticize President Obama on just how bad Iraq's gotten.

Stewart mocked the former vice president and his "Sith apprentice" daughter for acting like the U.S. was just mere seconds away from total victory in Iraq when Obama just ruined the whole thing. And Stewart pointed out it was actually the Bush administration that negotiated the withdrawal of forces, which Cheney bragged about on TV.

And so Stewart was absolutely floored by how Fox News Megyn Kelly actually called Cheney out to his face. Stewart said maybe now Cheney will get how it feels when "someone you thought was a friend shoots you in the face."

The main hypocrisy Stewart pointed out was an interview Cheney did many years ago bragging how the status of forces agreement Bush and him signed was great, that said they would remove all American troops. So back then it was great, now suddenly Obama is a traitor for not leaving troops in Iraq, when Bush and Cheney put the agreement together, signed it, and were proud of it.

Basically it shows what a partisan political hack Cheney is, and how nobody should ever listen to anything he says, because it is all lies. And of course O'Reilly never points out any of that, because he also blames Obama for the problems in Iraq and he does not want you to know the truth.

Their problem is, they can't state a case for re-election because they've done nothing but obstruct the past 5 1/2 years with passing one piece of significant legislation that benefits the entire country.
They did not pass a jobs bill, no infrastructure bill, no immigration bill, no educational bill; they did nothing and want to be re- elected.
What a joke they've become.
