    Pedro Cortés presented his resignation on Thursday as delegate of the Spanish team after learning that he is being investigated after a complaint for alleged sexual abuse of a player from the Valencia youth squad, as RFEF sources explained to Efe. As reported by El Español and confirmed by the Superior Court of Justice of the Valencian Community, the former president of Valencia was denounced in November by a young man who claims that he touched him when he was taking him to the sports city of the Mestalla club. Cortés, who already declared in his day before the National Police, has transmitted that it is a false complaint, but has resigned from the representative position that he held for more than a decade in the senior team.
              Virginia Delegate Hala Ayala (D-Prince William) wants to be a bridge between lawmakers and Virginians throughout the Commonwealth and offer a new perspective in state politics if her bid to become the next lieutenant governor is successful. Ayala, 47, entered Virginia’s 2021 lieutenant gubernatorial election on July 14th, and was one of the first candidates to enter into the race that now features a dozen Democratic and Republican hopefuls. “There is a whirlwind happening around us in the Commonwealth. It’s vast, it’s diverse and we can’t make progress or heal the discord without bridging divides,” Ayala said in an interview with The Virginia Star. “So, this means bridging divides between our communities and our leaders, between our ideals and realities, and between our past and where we’re going. “I’m running because I believe that with my life experience it enables me to build...
    (THE CONVERSATION) The delegates in Philadelphia agreed, in the summer of 1787, that the new country they were creating would not have a king but rather an elected executive. But they did not agree on how to choose that president. Pennsylvania delegate James Wilson called the problem of picking a president “in truth, one of the most difficult of all we have to decide.” Other delegates, when they later recounted the group’s effort, said “this very subject embarrassed them more than any other – that various systems were proposed, discussed, and rejected.” They were at risk of concluding their meetings without finding a way to pick a leader. In fact, this was the very last thing written into the final draft. Had no agreement been reached, the delegates would not have approved the Constitution.

In a statement to WJZ, Delegate Mosby said: “I have been in ongoing conversations with the IRS for five years about the tax consequences of an early withdrawal from my retirement savings plan, which I did to support unplanned expenses after a series of family tragedies.

              INNSBROOK, Virginia – Members of Virginia Trump delegation gathered at a local Innsbrook bar Thursday evening to celebrate the fourth and final night for the Republican National Convention, and the official nomination of President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. Bishop Leon Benjamin, a congressional candidate in Virginia’s fourth district, was the main speaker and crowd-pleaser of the event, offering a plethora of proclamations about the upcoming election and the efforts of delegation.  “This is our greatest hour,” Benjamin announced to the crowd. “Every delegate, every alternate delegate, you are wonderful.

    By JIM SALTER, STEPHEN GROVES and KATHLEEN RONAYNE, Associated Press BALLWIN, Mo. (AP) — Nick Zingarelli relished Michelle Obama's speech at the Democratic National Convention this week, especially when the former first lady used President Donald Trump's own words — “It is what it is” — to sum up Democrats' disappointment in his presidency. But the moment on the first night of the first virtual convention was bittersweet for Zingarelli. A line that good deserved a thunderous applause from a crowded convention hall, he thought. “Not having that response — yeah, there was something that was taken away from that,” said Zingarelli, a 41-year-old lawyer from suburban St. Louis. “But it’s the best that we can do in this environment." In other words, it is what it is. Many Americans who have tuned in to Democrats' experiment in socially distanced political theater have come away with similar reactions. They believe...

    Trump national delegate “Damn” Dean Peterson defended a racist post that referred to Senator Kamala Harris as “Aunt Jemima” by arguing that believing others would see the post as racist is “racist within itself.” Peterson spoke at a Luray Town Council meeting this week in defense of Republican Mayor Barry Presgraves, who faces calls for his resignation after he posted a racist meme that read “Joe Biden has just announced Aunt Jemima as his VP pick” a few weeks ago. A MAGA-hatted Peterson introduced himself as “Damn Dean Peterson,” and began by boasting “I am also an elected national delegate to elect President Donald Trump to a second term of office. Of which I have done and gotten my name known within the 6th congressional district by outing unethical behavior and conduct by those in power and making sure they are held accountable when it comes time to vote. Of which...
    Washington, D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes-Norton (D) said Sunday that the Black Lives Matter movement’s concerns could be addressed with legislative solutions, pointing to police reform bills in both chambers of Congress. Appearing on “Fox News Sunday,” Holmes-Norton addressed the previous segment, in which activist Walter “Hawk” Newsome said many activists had lost patience or trust in establishment Black Democrats. “I’ve been in the streets enough myself to understand that impatience, but you send people like me to Congress to do something about it,” Holmes-Norton told Fox News’s Chris WallaceChristopher (Chris) WallaceMinneapolis police union says members have been 'scapegoated by political leaders' Fox News's Chris Wallace presses Trump campaign adviser on Tulsa rally: 'People didn't show up' Public health expert: Trump Tulsa rally met 'all' of criteria for 'highest-risk gatherings' MORE. “The impatience in the streets is way we have the legislation that was passed,” she added, referencing the House’s proposal, which...

    Del. Eleanor Holmes NortonEleanor Holmes NortonThis week: Congress set for showdown on police reform legislation House Democrats to vote next week on DC statehood 'Defund the police' movement hits semantics roadblock MORE (D), Washington, D.C.’s representative in the House, will introduce legislation next week to remove the statue of Andrew Jackson from Lafayette Square right outside of the White House. Norton announced the proposal one day after protesters tried toppling Jackson’s statue before being dispersed by law enforcement. The statue is one of numerous figures targeted for removal by protesters across the country in recent days. In announcing her bill, Norton underscored Jackson’s role in forcefully relocating thousands of Native Americans during his time as president and his position as a slave owner, saying such a man should not be honored so close to the seat of power in the U.S.  “Lafayette Park itself has a painful past as a slave market....
    Washington, D.C.’s longtime congressional delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton said she wants to have a statue of former President Abraham Lincoln removed from a prominent district park. Norton said Tuesday she wants the Emancipation Memorial, first erected in 1876, taken down from Lincoln Park. She said that because the statue is on National Parks Service land, she would first work with the agency to see if it can be taken away to a museum without congressional action. She took umbrage with the monument’s “problematic depiction of the fight to achieve emancipation.” “Although formerly enslaved Americans paid for this statue to be built in 1876, the design and sculpting process was done without their input, and it shows. The statue fails to note in any way how enslaved African Americans pushed for their own emancipation,” Norton said in a statement. “Understandably, they were only recently liberated from slavery and...
    A demonstrator dashed toward NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton, who were standing on the street at Black Lives Matter Plaza in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday. Video taken on the scene shows the demonstrator, who was carrying a megaphone and wearing pink shorts and a purse, running toward Mitchell and the nonvoting Democrat who represents Washington, D.C., in the House of Representatives, while being chased by a man wearing a mask and a backpack. Mitchell was interviewing Norton when the protester ran by and repeatedly tapped the delegate on the back before being pulled away by the masked man, who was likely some form of security. After the demonstrator was whisked away, Norton could be heard asking: "Where are the police when you need them?" Several Black Lives Matter activists and Democratic politicians have called for local governments to "defund the police"...
    Washington, D.C.’s congressional delegate, Eleanor Holmes, said Tuesday she will introduce legislation to remove a “problematic” statue of Abraham Lincoln from D.C.’s Lincoln Park on Capitol Hill. Holmes cited the statue’s “problematic depiction of the fight to achieve emancipation” as grounds for its removal. The statue shows Lincoln standing over a shackled slave holding the Emancipation Proclamation. “Although formerly enslaved Americans paid for this statue to be built in 1876, the design and sculpting process was done without their input and it shows,” Holmes said in a statement. “The statue fails to note in any way how enslaved African Americans pushed for their own emancipation.” Holmes conjectured that the former slaves who funded the statue “were only recently liberated” and were “grateful for any recognition of their freedom.” TRUMP ISSUES WARNING AMID VANDALISM, EFFORT TO TOPPLE ANDREW JACKSON STATUE  The Lincoln Emancipation Statue sits in Lincoln Park on Nov....
    Forget saying "presumptive." Joe Biden is now the Democratic presidential nominee, after reaching the threshold of 1,991 pledged delegates needed to clinch his party’s nomination. Biden now has 1,993 delegates, according to The Associated Press. There are still contests to come in eight states and three U.S. territories. BIDEN ON THE CUSP OF CLINCHING THE DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION The former vice president became the Democratic Party’s presumptive nominee in April, after his last remaining rival for the nomination – Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont – suspended his campaign and backed Biden. But Sanders has kept his name on the ballots as he continues to capture delegates in order to have influence in the voting on the party’s platform at the summer nominating convention. With Sanders winning a small percentage of delegates, and with many states that were scheduled to hold primaries and caucuses in April and May pushing back their contests...
    A delegate who represents part of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area said he was teargassed by police who "instigated riots" as a crowd was protesting peacefully near the White House on Sunday night. Protests in Washington, D.C. mirrored nationwide rallies triggered by the death of George Floyd, a black man who died after he was pinned to the ground by a white Minneapolis Police officer who knelt on his neck for more than eight minutes. Ibraheem Samirah, a Democratic member of the Virginia House of Delegates, told Newsweek that he had been with a crowd of protesters in Lafayette Park who were chanting "Hands up, don't shoot" and "black lives matter" when police fired tear gas in a bid to disperse protesters at around 10.35 p.m. on Sunday night. "It was really painful in the moment, I've never felt anything like that, being basically blinded entirely for a good five...
