Look who just crawled out of the woodwork- Paula Jones

Paula Jones: Hillary Clinton unfit to be president
By NICK GASS 5/28/15 8:36 AM EDT

Paula Jones, the woman who sued President Bill Clinton for sexual harassment while he was governor of Arkansas, says Hillary Clinton is not fit to be president because of her husband’s past behavior.

“There is no way that she did not know what was going on, that women were being abused and accosted by her husband,” Jones said in an interview with Daily Mail Online. “They have both lied,” she said.

Jones, now 48, sued Clinton in 1994, alleging that he propositioned her in an Arkansas hotel room while he was governor. The lawsuit preceded revelations about the president’s affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky and his impeachment and later acquittal.
“She should not be running with the terrible history they have,” Jones said, warning that the former president should not be allowed back in the White House.

The Senate Votes That Divided Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders

Hillary Rodham Clinton is a liberal Democrat on domestic matters, and Bernie Sanders is a socialist. They voted the same way 93 percent of the time in the two years they shared in the Senate.

In fact, from January 2007 to January 2009, Mrs. Clinton, representing New York, voted with Mr. Sanders about as often as she did with the like-minded Democrats Ron Wyden of Oregon and Barbara Mikulski of Maryland.

In many of the cases in which she differed with Mr. Sanders, who represents Vermont and is also running for the Democratic presidential nomination, Mrs. Clinton went with the crowd. She voted with an overwhelming majority of her colleagues, including Republicans. Her positions on the votes that differed from Mr. Sanders represented policy differences but also political calculations by Mrs. Clinton, who was preparing for a presidential run in 2008.

The 31 times that Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Sanders disagreed happened to be on some the biggest issues of the day, including measures on continuing the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, an immigration reform bill and bank bailouts during the depths of the Great Recession. Mr. Sanders, who formally kicked off his campaign Tuesday evening in Burlington, Vt., was opposed to all these actions.


Scott Walker says he would sign prevailing wage repeal

Gov. Scott Walker would sign a bill repealing the state’s prevailing wage if it passes the Legislature, his spokeswoman said Wednesday.

Laurel Patrick made the comments as an Assembly committee heard testimony on a repeal bill, which the committee later approved 5-4.

Walker has said prevailing wage wasn’t a priority, and he has faced criticism from fellow Republicans for not more forcefully backing the legislation.

Rep. Andre Jacque, R-De Pere, chairman of the Assembly labor committee, said he decided to schedule the Wednesday public hearing and vote a little more than 24 hours in advance so the measure could be considered by the Legislature’s Joint Finance Committee as it drafts the last pieces of the state budget this week. Jacque said he would also support the measure as a standalone bill.

Scott Walker to Sign Ban on Abortions for Rape, Incest

Potentially complicating his 2016 bid, the Wisconsin governor has said he will sign a 20-week abortion bill that includes no exemption for rape or incest.

That’s because Republicans in the Wisconsin state legislature have introduced legislation banning abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

The bill is expected to get a vote in the next few weeks, before the state’s biennial budget passes. But unlike a federal bill on the issue, this legislation doesn’t include an exception allowing abortions for victims of rape or incest.

The governor plans to sign the legislation, Laurel Patrick, a spokeswoman for Walker’s office, emailed.


Pot still illegal for government workers

By Tim Devaney -

Smoking marijuana is still illegal for federal employees, even those who reside in states and cities that have approved the drug for use by the general public, the Obama administration said Wednesday.

The federal government’s prohibition on marijuana has increasingly come in conflict with a number of states.

“These changes to state law have raised questions about whether federal employees in these jurisdictions may use marijuana as provided for in state law,” Office of Personnel Management Director Katherine Archuleta wrote in a memo to federal agencies.

“Federal law on marijuana remains unchanged,” she added. “Marijuana is categorized as a controlled substance. …Thus, knowing or intentional marijuana possession is illegal, even if an individual has no intent to manufacture, distribute, or dispense marijuana."

Recreational marijuana was also legalized earlier this year in Washington, D.C., but federal workers in the nation’s capital will still be prohibited from smoking pot.
