An open letter calling on Nordstrom to drop Ivanka Trump's 'toxic' brand is going viral

Ivanka TrumpNordstrom is coming under fire for selling Ivanka Trump's fashion brand.

A woman describing herself as a lifelong Nordstrom customer posted an open letter to the department store demanding that it stop selling items from Trump's $100 million clothing and accessories line.

"The hate speech directed at African Americans, Latinos, Jews, Muslims, LGBT people, and women by the Trump campaign is unacceptable and does not seem to represent Nordstrom's values," she wrote, according to a copy of the letter that she posted on Twitter. "Yet Ms. Trump continues to defend it, and Nordstrom continues to defend her."


Gloria Allred: 'Many women contacted me even prior to the Trump tape'

Gloria AllredFrom the moment that Donald Trump denied, in a nationally televised presidential debate, that he had ever groped or kissed a woman without her permission, it was only a matter of time before Gloria Allred got involved.

An ambulance chaser to her critics, a righteous crusader to her admirers, the 75-year-old women’s rights attorney is never far when a scandal of this nature bursts into national view. No one knows this better than Allred herself. “I knew,” she said in a recent interview, “as soon as I heard those words – the denial in the debate – that women would start contacting me and want to come forward.”


Ex-Miss Finland Accuses Trump of Groping Her in 2006

Ex Miss Finland accuses TrumpA former Miss Finland has become the twelfth woman to come forward and accuse Donald Trump of sexual assault, with two weeks to go until the US election.

Ninni Laaksonen, now 30, was crowned Miss Finland in 2006.

Contacted by local newspaper Ilta-Sanomat, which rang all women known to have met Mr Trump, she accused the billionaire of grabbing her bottom in New York in July the same year.


Trump aide reveals 'three major voter suppression operations'

Trump voter suppressionA senior adviser to Donald Trump's presidential campaign says the GOP nominee's operation has three "voter suppression" drives intended to lower the vote for Democrat Hillary Clinton and provide a path to victory for Trump.

The three efforts are mentioned by the senior adviser in an interview with BloombergBusinessweek.

“We have three major voter suppression operations under way,” the unidentified senior official told Bloomberg.


Democrats ask judge to sanction Republicans over Trump

Democrats ask judge to sanction Republicans over TrumpThe Democratic National Committee on Wednesday asked a U.S. judge to hold the Republican National Committee in contempt of court over allegations that Donald Trump encouraged his supporters to intimidate minority voters.

The DNC accused Republicans in a court filing of violating a longstanding consent decree, which restricts Republicans' ability to question voters at the polls and prevent those people from casting a ballot.


Right on Schedule, Gary Johnson’s Poll Numbers Are Crashing

Gary JohnsonPerhaps some of those who believed America was headed toward a “libertarian moment” are surprised by the steady decline of Gary Johnson’s support, or blame his gaffes and general demeanor of a distracted stoner for ruining a huge opportunity. But minor-party candidacies usually lose ground the closer one gets to an election, especially a relatively competitive two-party election where a “protest vote” seems unwise.

The fade itself is hard to doubt. In the RealClearPolitics polling averages, the Johnson-Weld ticket peaked at 9.2 percent on September 13. Now they are at 5.6 percent. Given the current trajectory, and the intensification of major-party campaigning, it appears likely Johnson will wind up with less than half of his peak support. It is also possible, though not likely, that Clinton will blow out to so large a lead in the last week or so that “wasted vote” fears will abate and the libertarians will stabilize or even re-grow their vote.
