Staten Island special election 2015: Dan Donovan wins Congress seat

Source: silive.com

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Republican District Attorney Daniel Donovan has won Tuesday's special election and is going to be Staten Island's new congressman.

Donovan vied with Democratic Councilman Vincent Gentile and Green Party candidate James Lane for the seat.

The final tally for the election is not yet available, but the Donovan camp declared him the winner of the special election on Tuesday night. The DA celebrated with supporters at the Hilton Garden Inn in Bloomfield.

Donovan was long considered the front-runner in the race, as he is a well-liked Republican in a conservative-leaning borough of Staten Island that makes up about three-quarters of the 11th Congressional District.

Unreal. The DA who failed to prosecute the cop that killed Eric Garner now goes to Congress?

Have you met anyone that has sided with Michael Slager (cop who shot Walter Scott in back) yet?

Thankfully I haven't. In fact I was pleasantly surprised when I went into work yesterday and spoke with this neo-con who ALWAYS defends cops. Even she said this was murder. So then I went to Free Republic, land of racist cop defenders. I clicked on a thread, and read the first 25 or so replied. Every single one of them was against this cop. I was shocked, because Freepers always take the cop's side.

So, have you met or heard on TV/radio/FaceBook anyone yet who can possibly defend this police officer? Even the hard-core neo-cons on my FB aren't defending him (they are silent, but still).

The murder trial of the man accused of killing the real-life "American Sniper" is scheduled to begin next month.

Marine Corps veteran Eddie Ray Routh is accused of killing Chris Kyle in February 2013, four years after Kyle was honorably discharged from the Navy. Kyle is the inspiration behind the box-office hit "American Sniper."

Routh's trial is scheduled to start on Feb. 11, pending jury selection in the days prior, according to the clerk for Erath County District Court in Texas.

In the years leading up to his death, Kyle had begun working with wounded veterans and, in some cases, he spent time with them on the shooting range. One particular session turned deadly.

Biden didn't clap when the President talked about lifting the embargo on Cuba

Does he disagree with Obama or am I reading too much into this? Before you flame away, please check it out again. Here's a link, it's at approximately 38:29.

Natalie Wood's death: a mainstream conspiracy?

By mainstream I mean you don't have to be a "woo" to believe something may have gone foul here. To those of you old enough to remember, what are your thoughts? Accident? Murder? Manslaughter?

The minimum age of 35 to be President is such an unnecessary rule

I mean, seriously. Are there that many 25 year olds polling ahead of Clinton right now? What were they thinking?
