BUSTED: Ivanka Trump pays sweatshop workers near minimum wage for 57-hour workweeks

The author of the upcoming book, “Women Who Work” will have to answer for how she treats the women who work for her.

The Washington Post reports that inspectors with the Fair Labor Association found dozens of violations of international labor standards during an audit of a factory in China owned by the G-III Apparel Group — which owns the rights to manufacture and distribute Ivanka’s fashion line.

The newspaper noted the timing of the inspectors’ report, “comes as the president’s daughter has sought to cast herself as both a champion of workplace issues and a defender of her father’s “buy American, hire American” agenda.”

Just yesterday, G-III was busted for rebranding Ivanka’s clothing line and dumping it on the discount retailer Stein Mart.

This week’s G-III scandals are just the latest to plague Ivanka’s fashion empire during her father’s First 100 Days as president. Only weeks after being sworn-in, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway broke ethics rules by telling Fox News viewers to “go buy” Ivanka’s products.

Embattled House Intel chair Devin Nunes gets a challenger

Devin Nunes, the California Republican congressman who sparked a national firestorm as the House Intelligence chairman overseeing the investigation into Russian election meddling, has a challenger.

Charging voters are “fed up” with Nunes, Fresno County Deputy District Attorney Andrew Janz announced his candidacy Tuesday for California’s 22nd Congressional District seat.

Janz, a 33-year-old Democrat from the Central Valley city of Visalia, challenges the idea that the GOP-dominated district’s 10-point Republican voter registration advantage or Nunes’ roots in a third-generation dairy farming family shields him from a strong challenge in 2018. Nunes, 43, a Republican from Tulare, was elected to the seat in 2002.

“The notion that Devin Nunes is unbeatable is a myth,’’ Janz said in an interview Tuesday. “He’s been more concerned about defending himself regarding allegations of misusing classified information than he is with the concerns of the voters here — water, health care and crime. He’s not talking about these things.”

Researchers Discover New Species of Giant Spider

Tiny, dainty spiders no bigger than a Tic-Tac probably won’t send your blood pressure rising. But the 4-inch-long, red-fanged Sierra Cacachilas wandering spider (Califorctenus cacachilensis), recently named by researchers at the San Diego Natural History Museum and Mexico's Centro de Investigaciones Biológicas del Noroeste, is another story.

The species was first located in 2013 in a mountain range in Baja California Sur, Mexico. Researchers, including field entomologist Jim Berrian, came across evidence of an “abnormally big” shed exoskeleton in a cave. The eye pattern led them to believe it was potentially part of a group of wandering spiders from the Ctenidae family.

Knowing Ctenidae are nocturnal, the researchers returned to the cave at night, where they spotted a living specimen. The team confirmed it was a previously unidentified species, with the findings published in Zootaxa in March.

The cave-dwelling wandering spider is related to the Brazilian wandering spider, known to be highly venomous. Although researchers haven’t fully examined the consequences of a bite from the Sierra Cacachilas, informal research indicates it probably won’t kill you. “I got bit while handling a live specimen of Califorctenus cacachilensis, and I’m still alive,” Berrian said.

Mother Allegedly Hit By American Airlines Employee On Flight At SFO

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- American Airlines is taking swift action after a video surfaced of a fight on board one of their planes out of SFO.

Video shows an upset mother who was traveling with two young children. ABC affiliate WFAA in Dallas reports passengers say the mother was from Argentina and possibly didn't understand when a flight attendant took her stroller.

The incident escalated and other passengers jumped to her defense, angry with how she and her kids were allegedly treated by a flight attendant.

American Airlines told WFAA they have apologized to the woman and they are taking special care of her and her family, upgrading them to first class for the remainder of their international trip.
