May 28, 2011 by legitgov

Typhoon Strengthens, May Hit Fukushima Nuclear Plant 27 May 2011 Typhoon Songda strengthened to a supertyphoon after battering the Philippines and headed for Japan on a track that may pass over the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant by May 30, a U.S. monitoring center said.

The center's forecast graphic includes a possible path over Fukushima Dai-Ichi plant, which has been spewing radiation since March 11 when an earthquake and tsunami knocked out cooling systems. Three of six reactor buildings have no roof after explosions blew them off, exposing spent fuel pools and containment chambers that are leaking.

US judge rules against corporate contribution ban 27 May 2011 A U.S. judge has ruled that the campaign finance law banning corporations from making contributions to federal candidates is unconstitutional, saying that a recent Supreme Court decision gives companies the same right to donate as individual citizens enjoy. In a ruling issued late Thursday, U.S. District Judge James Cacheris tossed out part of an indictment against two people charged with illegally reimbursing donors to two campaigns. Cacheris says that under the Supreme Court's landmark Citizens United decision last year, corporations have the right to give to federal candidates.

She also wrote about Urban Outfitters and Santorum: "Not only do they steal from artists but every time you give them money you help finance a campaign against gay equality." It may not be the best news for Santorum, who is expected to launch his campaign next week since Cyrus has over a million Twitter followers.

4 senators win promise of a Patriot Act hearing 26 May 2011 Four Democratic senators won the promise Thursday of a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing into what they say is a secret and expansive Justice Department interpretation of the information collection the Patriot Act allows. The criticism by Intelligence Committee members Ron Wyden of Oregon and Mark Udall of Colorado came as Congress moved to extend the government's Patriot Act powers to search records and conduct roving wiretaps. Wyden said there is a growing gap between what the law says and what the senators call a classified interpretation of the law by the Justice Department. Udall said his constituents "would be alarmed if they knew" how the Patriot Act was being carried out.
