    If there's one thing that is patently obvious, it's that GOP Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Josh Hawley of Missouri don't have enough integrity to just go ahead and resign for their role in helping to stoke an armed insurrection at the Capitol. Instead, it's going to take a steady drumbeat of colleagues, peers, and outside observers to continue highlighting not only their craven opportunism, but what a danger they are to the health of the republic if left unchecked.  More than 5,000 law school alumni and students have now signed on to a petition advocating for the disbarment of Cruz and Hawley, citing their role in “leading the efforts to undermine the peaceful transition of power after a free and fair election.” From the letter: Senators Hawley and Cruz directly incited the January 6th insurrection, repeating dangerous and unsubstantiated statements regarding the election and abetting the lawless behavior of...

    The graduation gap between white and Black and football players on bowl-bound teams is increasing. The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport found that among the 56 teams playing in bowl games in this pandemic-affected season, white athletes graduate at a rate 16.3% higher than their Black teammates. A similar study last year saw white athletes graduate at a rate of 15.6% higher than Black athletes. “Generally, those numbers had been going up for any number of year,” study primary author Richard Lapchick said Tuesday. “The gap between Black and white student athletes had been narrowing, but this year it went up.” Lapchick acknowledged the study was impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. Last year’s report included 39 bowl games (78 teams) instead of 28 games in 2020. Lapchick, the institute’s director at the University of Central Florida, said he was still adjusting data given Army’s...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — Facing a nearly $4 billion budget shortfall for the rest of the current fiscal year – due to revenue lost as a result of the pandemic, and the failure of his signature graduated income tax plan – Gov. JB Pritzker on Tuesday announced $700 million in spending cuts. “The pandemic has caused every state in the nation to face tremendous revenue shortfalls, and Illinois is no exception,” Pritzker said Tuesday afternoon. Pritzker said his $711 million in planned cuts to state agencies under his direct control is just “a first step” toward balancing the budget, and he called on state lawmakers to come to the table with further proposed budget cuts. The governor in particular called out Republicans who vehemently opposed his proposed graduated income tax hike, which voters rejected in November. His budget plan was counting on $1.4 billion in new revenue from the graduated income...
    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Reese Waters is going from high school to college basketball — immediately. The 6-foot-5, 210-pound guard from Long Beach graduated from high school on Wednesday and will suit up for Southern California on Sunday when the Trojans open Pac-12 play against Stanford.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Showing his disappointment in the graduated income tax being defeated by Illinois voters on Tuesday, the governor said as a result, cuts will be coming, and “they will be painful.” “As we in Illinois are racking up more bills than we have in revenues. It’s unsustainable,” Pritzker said, who blamed his predecessor Bruce Rauner for not passing a state budget for two years. “Had the fair tax passed, we would have been on a course toward long term stabilization of our state’s finances, balancing the budget, eliminating the backlog, making our pension payments and investing in a rainy day fund in a way that would start to unburden the working families of our state,” Pritzker said. “But the opponents of the fair tax lied about what would happen if it passed, and they left all of the working people of Illinois holding the bag.” With 97% of...

    Illinois voters have rejected a ballot measure to allow the state to have a graduated income tax, a move that would have made the state's tax code more progressive. The Associated Press reported mid-day Wednesday that the amendment failed. The amendment would have removed language from the state constitution that requires the state to have a flat income tax. The amendment itself would not have set a new tax rate structure, but the Illinois state legislature last year approved new tax rates that would have gone into effect Jan. 1 if the amendment had passed. Currently, Illinois has one individual income tax rate of 4.95 percent. Under the measure approved by the state legislature, income above $250,000 would have been taxed at higher rates, income between $100,000 and $250,000 would generally have remained taxed at 4.95 percent, and income below $100,000 would generally have been taxed at lower rates.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Chances for Gov. JB Pritzker’s signature plan to switch Illinois to a graduated income tax appear dim, as most voters have rejected the proposed constitutional amendment, though that could change as outstanding mail-in ballots continue to come in. With 97% of the votes counted, unofficial results showed 55% of voters said no to the tax. Around 45% voted for the amendment. However, election officials in Illinois have cautioned that the number of outstanding mail-in ballots could change affect the results of close races in the coming days and weeks. Mail-in ballots postmarked by Election Day can be counted if they arrive with election authorities by Nov. 17. As of Monday morning, state officials estimated there were 300,000 to 400,000 outstanding mail-in ballots in Illinois. Complicating the final result of the income tax amendment is the complicated manner in which it can be approved. Approving an amendment to the...

    By JOHN O'CONNOR, AP Political Writer SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — A ballot proposal that would allow Illinois to switch from a flat tax to a graduated income tax that takes a larger percentage from wealthy residents was undecided early Wednesday with votes still uncounted. The switch would give Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker and lawmakers a roadmap to paying down the state's billions of dollars in debt. The question on the ballot would amend the Illinois Constitution, which requires that income be taxed at a flat rate. It's currently at 4.95% for individual payers. Pritzker campaigned on switching to a graduated rate, contending he could raise $3 billion extra a year while not imposing higher taxes on 97% of taxpayers. The federal government and 32 other states use a graduated structure. Approving an amendment to the Illinois Constitution requires three-fifths majority approval, or 60%, of all who vote on the question....
    CHICAGO (CBS) — It looks like an uphill battle for the passage of the controversial proposed graduated income tax. While it’s not looking good for passage, it could come down to outstanding mail ballots. The final result for the amendment may not be known for several days. With more than 57% of the votes in, a little more than 52% are against the tax while close to 48% voted for the tax. Approving an amendment to the Illinois Constitution required one of two things: either a three-fifths majority approval, or 60%, of all who vote on the question; or a yes vote from a majority of the overall number of ballots cast in the election. Those for and against the constitutional amendment waged multimedia, multimillion dollar campaigns to sway voters on the tax. The ballot measure would repeal the state’s constitutional requirement that the state’s personal income tax is a flat rate...

    A Florida lawyer is accused of being a “serial bank robber,” who was busted this week as he allegedly headed to his sixth raid, federal prosecutors said. Aaron Honaker, 41, is accused of holding up five Miami banks since Sept. 30 — but only successfully getting cash in two of them, and even then only $1,850, the US Attorney’s office said. He was arrested after a detective spotted him downtown Tuesday — and was carrying a hammer and demanded notes as he confessed to heading to another planned robbery at a TD Bank, according to the Miami Herald, citing the criminal complaint. Honaker is listed on the Florida Bar as a member in good standing. Both that and his LinkedIn page say he is with the Coral Gables-based firm of Martinez Morales — but the company told the Miami Herald he disappeared two years ago and never came back. Duke...
    By The Associated Press Here are editorials published recently in Illinois newspapers.

JB Pritzker’s signature campaign promise — changing Illinois’ constitution to allow for a graduated income tax — is either the revenue panacea that Illinois needs, or will hasten its financial implosion. But what the fate of Pritzker’s so-called Fair Tax will mean for Chicago’s financial future is less clear cut. The potential for extra revenues at the state level doesn’t make a significant dent in the city deficit, and...
    By JOHN O'CONNOR, AP Political Writer SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Both sides in the debate over a ballot measure to change Illinois' income tax system from a flat-rate to a graduated structure have straightforward arguments Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker and other proponents call it the “fair tax” because it demands more from those with higher incomes. Those making less than $250,000 a year would pay no more than the current 4.95% flat rate. Opponents point to the state's history of political corruption, saying the proposal on the November ballot would loosen constitutional restraints on lawmakers' spending. THE PROPOSAL The ballot question would amend the Illinois Constitution to discard the current income tax system, in which every individual pays the same flat rate, 4.95%, and corporations pay 7%. It would set up brackets, like the federal government and 32 other states. The tax rate would increase with income. BIG STAKES, BIG...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — We’re being bombarded by them – ads for and against the graduated income tax proposal for Illinois that will be on the ballot next month. So what is fact and what is fiction? CBS 2 Political Investigator Dana Kozlov spent the day sorting that out. RELATED: Religious Leaders Urge Voters To Back Graduated Income Tax Plan; Conservative Group Sues Over Ballot Language Regular people are sending two very different messages in ads for and against the proposed graduated income tax amendment. But what is the truth when it comes to the claims in those ads? Here is one of them in opposition: “The tax hike amendment would increase taxes on over 100,000 small businesses, like ours, by nearly 50 percent.” So we went to Laurence Msall of the Civic Federation, which is neither for nor against the tax proposal. “The Civic Federation has concerns about how the...

    CHICAGO (AP) — A group aligned with the Republican Party filed a lawsuit Monday challenging the ballot language of a proposed Illinois constitutional amendment that creates a graduated-rate income tax. The Illinois Policy Institute contends in the lawsuit filed in Cook County Circuit Court that the explanation of the amendment on the ballot for voter approval is misleading and needs court-ordered clarification. The amendment would change the state’s mandated flat-rate income tax to a graduated-rate tax with rates that increase along with income. The Illinois General Assembly in May approved the language in the proposed amendment that is atop the Nov. 3 ballot that explains the pros and cons of adding a graduated rate to the income tax system. The lawsuit contends misleading statements in the ballot explanation and pamphlet are dangerous to retirees. “Like the ballot explanation, the arguments in favor include several misleading statements including, among others, a misleading statement...

    Barbara Jo Kammer finds therapy in music, and in better times, she and her band, The Hippie Buckaroos, can often be found playing to the residents of senior homes in and around Boulder County. Of course, COVID-19 has made that next to impossible. The Lafayette resident didn't want to let a global pandemic stop her from helping others. She's taken her act solo and plays just outside the window for elders, many of whom are stuck inside and in need of a distraction. "I've been working with elders as a music therapist since I graduated from Naropa in 2000," Kammer says. "It's been a wonderful experience for the elders, for the staff and for us especially." The past few weeks have even made playing outside a bit of a challenge because the smoke from nearby fires and those in California have forced many senior homes to close their windows....
    Getty Former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. The 2020 presidential debate kicked off Tuesday night with a buzz, filled with personal attacks, needling and interrupting between President Donald Trump and his Democratic opponent former vice president Joe Biden. In one particularly heated moment, Trump fired back at Biden’s claim that the president needs to “get a lot smarter a lot quicker” in reference to the coronavirus pandemic. Trump responded by claiming there “is nothing smart” about the Democrat, accusing him of graduating from law school in the bottom of his class. “You use the word smart?” Trump asked. “So, you said you went to Delaware State, but you forgo the name of your college. You didn’t go to Delaware State.” “You graduated either the lowest, or almost in the lowest, of your class,” the president continued. “Don’t ever use the word ‘smart’ with me. Because,...

    Illinois taxpayers, who already have one of the nation’s highest overall tax burdens, could see a 20% income tax hike if voters don’t approve of Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s “fair tax” constitutional amendment in November. Lt. Gov. Juliana Stratton said on a conference call Thursday that the state would have to raise income taxes by $4 billion, more than the income tax amendment would have brought in before the Pritzker administration’s shutdown orders ground the state’s economy to a crawl amid the pandemic. “To adequately address the budget crisis under our current tax system, lawmakers will be forced to consider raising income taxes on all Illinois residents by at least 20% regardless of their level of income,” she said. “We all know that our middle and low-income families cannot withstand a 20% tax increase and it will only serve to deepen the dramatic inequities that we already see across...

    One of the hottest contests on ballots across Illinois this November won't feature a single candidate.The fight over a graduated income tax amendment is turning into a battle of the billionaires.According to Illinois Board of Elections records, Illinois' richest man and Citadel founder Ken Griffin donated $20 million to the Coalition to Stop the Proposed Tax Hike Amendment on Aug 27. The group opposes switching Illinois' income tax from a flat rate to one based on income levels.Governor JB Pritzker has donated $56.5 million dollars to Vote Yes for Fairness which supports the measure.In a statement, Griffin said in part "It's time the Governor and Illinois legislature stop taking advantage of constituents and wasting hard-earned taxpayer dollars. It's time for the Governor and the legislature to focus on spending our money wisely to provide for better schools, better public safely, better infrastructure and greater opportunities for all our citizens."
    CHICAGO (CBS) — A multimillion dollar donation from businessman Ken Griffin against the graduated income tax proposal in Illinois is still peanuts compared to the millions Gov. JB Pritzker has thrown at getting the tax, an issue he ran on, passed. One lawmaker to CBS 2 Political Investigator Dana Kozlov it is game on. There are already ads for the so-called fair tax and against what opposition calls the proposed tax hike. Both are referring to the same issue: a graduated income tax amendment on November’s ballot that would eliminate the state’s current flat 4.95% income tax rate and implement different rates for different income levels. In a nutshell those who make more than $250,000 will pay more. If the money behind the issue is any indication, the political stakes are high. “Every time I think I’m getting used to the level of money in Illinois politics something like this happens...

    In a Wednesday announcement, President Donald Trump nominated an elite attorney who appears to have worked in private practice for less than a year to a lifetime position on the federal bench. Kathryn Kimball Mizelle was named as the 45th president’s choice to serve on the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida. Certain aspects of the nominee’s résumé read like a wish list for the Federalist Society and the broader conservative movement. In one odd incident, Trump’s latest judicial nominee told a conservative crowd that she believes “paper money” is unconstitutional. Mizelle, apparently in her early thirties, currently has a presumably high-paying job at the Jones Day law firm. According to her company profile, Mizelle’s nascent law practice “focuses on complex civil and criminal litigation and appeals.” Her law firm’s biography suggests she began her legal career as a law clerk from 2012 to 2013 for...
