    President Biden withdrew the nomination of Neera Tanden to lead the Office of Management and Budget, the White House said Tuesday evening. In a statement, Biden praised Tanden's "record of accomplishment, her experience and her counsel," and said he looks forward to Tanden serving in another role. "She will bring valuable perspective and insight to our work," he added. Tanden faced bipartisan opposition in the Senate due to a pattern of Twitter barbs over the years, alienating key votes needed to confirm her nomination in the evenly divided Senate. Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, a Democrat, said he would oppose her last month, meaning the White House would require at least one Republican vote. This set up a fraught challenge as more centrist Republicans staked out opposition. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE FROM THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER On Tuesday, during the hearing for the OMB...

    Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio criticized Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s response to sexual assault allegations, saying that Cuomo “belittled what had happened.” “I’ve been very clear about it,” de Blasio said of Cuomo’s statement at a Tuesday press conference. “Sexual harassment is not a laughing matter, it’s serious.

    (CNN)In the years prior to taking office, President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and many of their administration's top officials harshly criticized President Donald Trump's lack of action against Saudi Arabia and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for the 2018 murder of Saudi journalist and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Biden is now facing criticism for not following through on campaign promises to hold Saudi Arabia accountable for the killing. The administration last Friday released a declassified intelligence report on Khashoggi's murder that said the crown prince, commonly known as MBS, directly approved the operation that ended with the murder of Khashoggi. He was killed and allegedly dismembered after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2, 2018, having gone into the building to collect documents for his upcoming wedding.

    New York : Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul, 2019 Photo: Mariela Lombard / El Diario NY Still considering itself “progressive”, New York is part of the minority of 20 states in the country that have never had a woman at the head of the regional executive branch. Kathy Hochul could be the first governor in New York history, if recent scandals culminate in the departure of Andrew Cuomo, by resignation or removal, a growing clamor even from his Democratic party, regionally and federally. The current 62-year-old lieutenant governor would be required by law to assume the position of Cuomo, whose third term would officially end on January 1, 2023. It would be a great irony for a woman to succeed the governor, after being accused of sexual harassment by three New Yorkers, so far.

But now, studios are tinkering with that timeframe, either shortening it or doing away with it altogether. “The consumer is probably more impatient than they’ve ever been before, particularly since now they’ve had the luxury of an entire year of getting titles at home pretty much when they want them,” Chapek said late Monday at a virtual conference hosted by Morgan Stanley. “I’m not sure there’s going back,” he continued. “But we certainly don’t want to do anything like cut the legs off a theatrical exhibition run.” He added that customers don’t have “tolerance” for the months-long period after...
    A veteran Texas medical examiner has been suspended from conducting autopsies in homicide cases after several inconsistencies were found in at least two of his reports - including missing a bullet in a teenage murder victim's body.

    CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — Police on Tuesday ruled out investigating an unnamed Australian Cabinet minister over an allegation that he raped a 16-year-old girl more than 30 years ago. The decision by New South Wales state police adds pressure on Prime Minister Scott Morrison to establish an independent investigation to examine the accusation. The accusation has created a cloud over the 16 men in Morrison’s 22-minister Cabinet and is feeding complaints of a culture within Parliament that is toxic for women. His conservative coalition has a smaller proportion of female lawmakers than other parties and has been accused of sexism. The rape allegation was contained in an anonymous letter sent to the prime minister’s office and to three female lawmakers last week. The 31-page letter contained a statement from a complainant, taken by her lawyer, that detailed her allegation of a rape she said occurred in Sydney in 1988. The...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo "is no longer able to govern" the state and "should immediately resign from office," Assemblyman Mike Lawler told "America Reports" Monday. "It's not just the sexual harassment allegations, it is what they did with the nursing homes," said Lawler, a Republican who represents the southern part of Rockland County. "That is why, together, he must resign immediately, and if he chooses not to, the legislature must impeach him." Lawler added that the harassment allegations made against Cuomo by former aides Lindsey Boylan and Charlotte Bennett reveal "predatory sexual behavior" by the Democrat. "The allegations by Lindsey Boylan and Charlotte Bennett show a governor who preyed upon women female staffers in his office and had staff that was complicit in helping him do so," he charged. "And so I think what is clear is not only should the governor resign and he should resign immediately, but that there needs to be...
    SAN FRANCISCO — David Anderson, the San Francisco attorney who spent two years as the top federal prosecutor in the Bay Area, has left office in response to President Joe Biden’s widespread call for Trump-appointed U.S. Attorneys to vacate. Anderson, appointed by then-President Donald Trump in January 2019, has been replaced by acting-U.S. Attorney Stephanie Hinds, who becomes the third woman in the Northern District of California’s 170-year history to fill that role.

    NEW YORK (AP) — New York's attorney general said she's moving forward with an investigation into sexual harassment allegations against Gov. Andrew Cuomo after receiving a letter from his office Monday authorizing her to take charge of the probe. The referral letter allows Attorney General Letitia James to deputize an outside law firm to conduct the inquiry with full subpoena power. When the investigation is finished, the findings will be disclosed in a public report, the letter said.

    A man accused of torching West Philadelphia Lowe's during last May's widespread Black Lives Matter protests has been indicted on federal arson charges, authorities announced. The indictment alleges that Derrick Weatherbe, 29, of Philadelphia, damaged and destroyed the Lowe’s Home Improvement store on North 50th Street on May 31, 2020, according to Acting United States Attorney Jennifer Arbittier Williams.

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Tony Evers on Monday signed into law a bipartisan bill that will boost pay for state public defenders at a time when the office has lost dozens of employees in the face of stagnant wages. The bill allows for merit-based pay raises higher than the standard 10% increases. The public defender's office will be able to offer raises higher than 10% only for the upcoming fiscal year, using savings from the past year when the office lost 78 staff members. Many of them left for higher paid jobs in government or the private sector, state Public Defender Kelli Thompson said in written testimony for the bill's public hearing last month. For too long, public defenders have had to do more with less, Evers said at a virtual signing ceremony. “We can’t make the robust, critical changes needed to reform our criminal justice system in Wisconsin...
    By MELINDA DESLATTE, Associated Press BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Another elections technology firm is objecting to the terms of Louisiana’s voting machine search, accusing the secretary of state of trying to manipulate the bid process to benefit its current contractor and raising echoes of the dispute that derailed efforts to get new machines three years ago. Election Systems and Software filed a formal protest with Louisiana's procurement office about the criteria that Republican Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin, the state's top elections official, is using to replace 10,000 Election Day and early voting machines. The Nebraska-based voting system vendor, known as ES&S, said Ardoin's bid solicitation will limit the state to choosing a “system virtually identical to the current system.” ES&S said it's impossible for any company to meet the criteria except for Louisiana's current contractor, Dominion Voting Systems. “It is a noncompetitive solicitation," ES&S lawyers wrote in the...
