 Schlonged? Donald Trump’s Pathetic Frat-Boy Politics

Donald Trump - psychosexual problemsApparently I haven’t been clear about the meaning of “schlong.” I thought it was simply slang for “penis,” but The Washington Post says it’s actually a term for “a large penis.” Who knew? I’ve never had reason to use the word in my long career in journalism, until now.

As you may know, Donald Trump derided Hillary Clinton all kinds of ways Monday night. He said her mid-debate bathroom break was “too disgusting” to talk about. But this was the flourish:

Patrick MurphyFormer Congressman Patrick Murphy is headed to the Pentagon.

The Iraq and Afghanistan War veteran was confirmed as the Undersecretary of the Army on Friday. The Senate approved his nomination by voice vote.

Murphy represented the state's 8th Congressional District, Bucks County and portions of Montgomery County, from 2007 to 2011 and was one of the first members of Congress to support Barack Obama’s campaign back in August 2007. His biggest accomplishment was overseeing the repeal of “Don’t ask, don’t tell” in 2010.



Republican Ben Carson’s Presidential Campaign Burns Through Cash

Ben carson campaign funds burnedOctober was the best month of Ben Carson’s presidential campaign. A nine-point lead in Iowa by Halloween had his top aide crowing on Facebook about “Carson fever” gripping the country.

Behind the scenes, things weren’t going as well.

Internal campaign budget documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal show a political operation hemorrhaging cash. Mr. Carson’s team raised $8.8 million in October and spent $9.5 million—putting the retired neurosurgeon’s effort under water months before the first early-state voters caucus and cast ballots.

Graham, 60, is an Air Force veteran and reservist and a foreign policy hawk who said he was running for president because the job called for someone with experience.


'Dark money' grows in politics even as states try to stop it

dark moneyJust before Rhode Island voters chose their governor last year, a group in Ohio transferred $730,000 from secret donors to another Ohio organization that spent the money on television ads aimed at defeating Gina Raimondo, the Democrat who eventually won a tight race.

More than a year later, it's still not clear where the money came from or why two Ohio-based groups would want to influence an election 600 miles away. The same groups also funneled anonymously donated cash for major political ad campaigns in Arkansas and Illinois.


Democratic National Committee Restores Bernie Sanders' Access To Voter Data

Bernie SandersThe Democratic National Committee agreed Friday night to reinstate Sen. Bernie Sanders' (I-Vt.) presidential campaign's access to its voter database, which had been suspended following a data breach.

The DNC blocked Sanders' access to the data Friday morning, after Sanders campaign staffers wrongly accessed voter information from rival Hillary Clinton's campaign on Wednesday.
