NYT ID's 'Shirtless FBI Agent"

It's a guy with interesting counter-terrorism past named Frederick Humphries, who naturally is married and like everyone else knows Jill Kelley and her husband and has the hots for her. This is "passionate," "hard-charging," "obsessive" and "bulldog" guy who also leaked to Rep. Cantor in apparent effort to bring down Obama. (I found photo of him from a few years back at left, via Seattle Times, with this story. ) He also claims the shirtless photo was merely sent as a "joke."

The IDF(Israel Defense Forces) has in recent minutes struck over 20 underground rocket launchers belonging to Hamas and Islamic Jihad in an airstrike.

By Megan M. Wilson - 11/13/12 06:31 PM ET

A new group that includes former lobbyist Jack Abramoff and members of the Occupy Wall Street movement on Tuesday began gathering signatures on a petition calling for an overhaul of the campaign finance system.
Represent.US aims to gather 1 million signatures in support of the American Anti-Corruption Act, a legislative proposal drafted by former Federal Election Commission Chairman Trevor Potter.

Once they reach 1 million signatures, the group plans to ask lawmakers to sponsor the bill and introduce it in Congress.
The measure would limit campaign contributions across the board and require all donations to be disclosed to the public, among other reforms.
Theodore Roosevelt IV, a member of the group and the great-grandson of President Teddy Roosevelt, said the measure aims would put power back in the hands of voters.

"It is unconscionable, in our society, that Congress is held in such low esteem," he said. " materially important to re-establish the sovereignty of the American people."
Board members for Represent.US say they are developing a plan to challenge lawmakers who refuse to endorse their bill.
The organization, which is operates two non-profits, will accept donations to pursue its agenda all of which will be fully disclosed.
