This is something else.
(Think Progress) Chief Justice John Roberts’s opinion for the Court in Williams-Yulee is certainly better for campaign finance regulation than a decision striking down this limit on judicial candidates — had the case gone the other way, judges could have been given the right to solicit money from the very lawyers who practice before them. Yet Roberts also describes judges as if they are special snowflakes who must behave in a neutral and unbiased way that would simply be inappropriate for legislators, governors and presidents.

(Jezebel) At some point, the senator added, it will be appropriate to talk about those “root causes,” which don’t include police violence: “I took the train on Baltimore last night, I’m glad the train didn’t stop. But the things is, really, there are so many things we can talk about, not in the immediate aftermath, but over time: the breakdown of the family structure, the lack of fathers, the lack of a moral code in our society. This isn’t just a racial thing. It goes across racial boundaries.” Paul added that the country is “closer to the tipping point than many think.”
Rand Paul’s son William was most recently arrested for drunk driving earlier this month. No word from the senator yet on whether that too can be blamed on a lack of fathers and/or moral code.
(Huffington Post) Hillary Clinton will deliver a major speech on criminal justice reform Wednesday, calling for fundamental changes to how the United States punishes its citizens and an end to a system that disproportionately targets black men.
Clinton is scheduled to keynote the 18th Annual David N. Dinkins Leadership and Public Policy Forum at Columbia University Wednesday morning. It will be her most significant policy address since she launched her 2016 presidential bid this month.
(Reuters) A cache of Hillary Clinton emails expected to be made public soon contains no support for Republican accusations that Clinton was involved in efforts to downplay the role of Islamic militants in the deadly 2012 attacks on U.S. installations in Benghazi, Libya, people familiar with the emails said.
Two people familiar with the material said this week that the 300 emails do not demonstrate that Clinton, who was secretary of state at the time of the attacks, was personally involved in decisions that resulted in weak security at the Benghazi outposts.
