November 6, 2012 by legitgov

KBR Ordered to Pay $85 Million Over Soldiers' Toxin Exposure 06 Nov 2012 A jury on Friday ordered an American military contractor to pay $85 million after finding it guilty of negligence for illnesses suffered by a dozen Oregon soldiers who guarded an oilfield water plant during the Iraq war. After a three-week trial, the jury deliberated for just two days before reaching a decision against the contractor, Kellogg Brown and Root. The suit was the first concerning soldiers' exposure to a toxin at a water plant in southern Iraq.

The case was the first to go to trial against Houston-based KBR over injuries suffered by its employees or by troops guarding the workers at company sites in Iraq.

Romney schedules Pittsburgh visit after Clinton appearance

November 6, 2012 by legitgov

Romney schedules Pittsburgh visit after Clinton appearance 06 Nov 2012 Mitt Romney would love to follow Bill Clinton's path to the White House. At least until they start to count the votes tonight, he'll have to content himself with following the former president to Pittsburgh. As the hours before Election Day approached single digits, a yearslong campaign exhausted itself with final, predictable ads; swing state appearances; and exhortations to final get-out-the-vote efforts. Mr. Clinton, who has emerged as the Obama campaign's surrogate-in-chief since his tour de force appearance at the Democrats' Charlotte, N.C., convention, made the case for the president's re-election again Monday at a lunchtime rally in Market Square. In an eleventh-hour scheduling decision, Mr. Romney's campaign announced that he would stop in the Pittsburgh region for a final pitch for the votes.

November 6, 2012 by legitgov

Obama's campaign ends where it all began 06 Nov 2012 For President Barack Obama, it ended where it all began. Obama closed his 2012 campaign with a nighttime rally Monday in Iowa, where his 2008 caucus victory jumpstarted his road to the White House. In an event steeped in nostalgia, the president urged voters in the swing state to help him finish what they started here four years ago. The president spoke in front of the building that housed his 2008 campaign's state headquarters, one of the first offices his team opened.

Secret money funds GOP door-knockers

November 6, 2012 by legitgov

Secret money funds GOP door-knockers 05 Nov 2012 There's so much secret money in conservative politics that even volunteers are getting paid -- and paid well. Grassroots activists who used to knock on doors and make phone calls for free are the latest beneficiaries of the historic spending spree to defeat President Barack Obama and elect GOP lawmakers. Deep-pocketed nonprofit groups -- funded by unlimited, and mostly undisclosed, contributions -- are offering canvassers and phone bankers wages upwards of $15 an hour and dangling perks such as performances by 3 Doors Down, drawings to win iPads and the chance to stay in a "posh hotel," POLITICO has learned.

The towns have been enjoying their first-vote status since 1948 and it's a matter of pride to get everyone to the polls.

HSBC Prepares to Face U.S. Money Laundering Charges

November 6, 2012 by legitgov

HSBC Prepares to Face U.S. Money Laundering Charges 05 Nov 2012 HSBC Holdings Plc said it's likely to face criminal charges from U.S. anti-money-laundering probes and the cost of a settlement may "significantly" exceed the $1.5 billion the bank has set aside. The lender made an additional $800 million provision in the third quarter to cover a potential settlement, adding to the $700 million it had already earmarked. HSBC also put aside $357 million in the period to compensate U.K. clients wrongly sold payment-protection insurance on loans as it posted an increase in pretax profit that missed analysts' estimates.

Turkey Puts Israeli Officers on Trial

November 6, 2012 by legitgov

Turkey Puts Israeli Officers on Trial 05 Nov 2012 Turkey will try former Israeli military chiefs in absentia today for ordering a deadly raid on a Gaza-bound aid ship, publicly prolonging a dispute between the former allies even as their interests in the region converge. The four suspects, including ex-military chief Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi, face nine consecutive life terms in prison for "inciting to kill monstrously and by torturing," according to the indictment at the Ankara court. It was approved before the second anniversary of the May 31, 2010 raid, in which nine Turks were killed.

Chris Christie Denied Mitt Romney Request to Appear at Campaign Event Days Ahead of 2012 Election

November 6, 2012 by legitgov

Chris Christie Denied Mitt Romney Request to Appear at Campaign Event Days Ahead of 2012 Election 05 May 2012 New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who was effusive in his praise of President Barack Obama when the two leaders toured damage from Hurricane Sandy last week, turned down a request by Mitt Romney to appear with him at a rally on Sunday night in Pennsylvania, The Huffington Post has learned. Christie's decision will only add to questions among Republicans about what the governor -- who is up for reelection a year from now -- is thinking, and why he went out of his way to heap praise on the president, and then refused to appear with Romney. The Romney rally was held at a farm in Morrisville, Pa., not more than 20 minutes from Trenton, the New Jersey capital. The physical proximity of the event to New Jersey only added to questions in the Romney campaign about why Christie chose not to come.

$11 million donation tied to Koch brothers; Calif. agency alleges 'money laundering' 05 Nov 2012  Ending a mystery that captivated the run-up to Election Day, the Arizona group behind an anonymous $11 million donation revealed under court order Monday that the shadowy donation was laundered through two groups, including one tied to David and Charles Koch, the billionaire brothers [terrorists] who have played a huge role in spreading anonymous political cash around [and destroying] the country. The donation, the largest anonymous contribution to a ballot measure campaign in California history, was made to the Small Business Action Committee, a conservative group running a campaign for Proposition 32, the measure that would curb labor's ability to collect political cash, and against Proposition 30, Gov. Jerry Brown's tax-hike initiative.

California Supreme Court orders Arizona nonprofit to release donor records

November 6, 2012 by legitgov

California Supreme Court orders Arizona nonprofit to release donor records 05 Nov 2012 The California Supreme Court on Sunday ordered an obscure Arizona nonprofit to submit its donation records immediately to state regulators, but it remained unclear whether voters would know the source of the contribution before Tuesday's 'election.' Phoenix-based Americans for Responsible Leadership gave $11 million in October to a business campaign committee opposing Gov. Jerry Brown's tax initiative, Proposition 30, and supporting a measure that would restrict union dues collection, Proposition 32. California's highest court issued its unanimous 7-0 decision after a rare Sunday telephone conference and gave ARL just under an hour to comply.

One-quarter of EMTs don't get flu vaccine --Sixty percent of EMTs who did not get vaccinated said they do not trust public health authorities when they say influenza vaccine is safe 05 Nov 2012 Patients are regularly advised brainwashed by pharma-terrorists to get an annual flu vaccine, but 25 percent of St. Louis's emergency medical technicians do not get vaccinated, researchers say. Sixty percent of EMTs who did not get vaccinated said they do not trust the public health authorities when they say the influenza vaccine is safe, and about a third said that flu vaccine has a lot of side effects and reported being afraid of them. More than half in this unvaccinated group also said they do not believe they can play a role in transmitting influenza to their patients if they are not vaccinated.

November 5, 2012 by legitgov

Chevron gives $2.5 million to conservative super PAC 26 Oct 2012 The dearth of large contributions being made by big corporations to super PACs so far this election has ended. Chevron Corp., ranked No. 3 on the Fortune 500 list of largest U.S. companies, made a $2.5 million contribution on Oct. 7 to the conservative Congressional Leadership Fund, a super PAC dedicated to electing Republicans to the House and Senate. Following the U.S. Supreme Court's Citizens United decision in 2010, which allowed corporate money to be spent on elections, there were predictions that companies would tap their treasuries and flood races with unlimited cash.

November 5, 2012 by legitgov

US Navy is arming drone boats 03 Nov 2012 While the US Air Force's drones have been firing all sorts of air-to-surface missiles and bombs for roughly a decade now, the Navy took a big step toward getting in on the action last week when it launched six Israeli-made Spike missiles from an unmanned 36-foot motorboat. The project -- the unmanned surface vehicle precision engagement module (USV PEM) -- is part of a joint-US-Israeli collaboration run out of the US Navy's sea systems command's Special Warfare Program Office. The same shop is responsible for, among other things, fielding a number of tiny submarines used to listen for enemy submarines, deliver Navy SEALS and other secret squirrel activities.

Last-Minute Ohio Directive Could Trash Legal Votes and Swing Election

November 4, 2012 by legitgov

Last-Minute Ohio Directive Could Trash Legal Votes and Swing Election 03 Nov 2012 A last-minute directive issued by Ohio Secretary of State Suppression Jon Husted (R) could invalidate legal provisional ballots. The directive, issued Friday, lays out the requirements for submitting a provisional ballot. The directive includes a form which puts the burden on the voter to correctly record the form of ID provided to election officials. Husted also instructed election officials that if the form is not filled out correctly by a voter, the ballot should not be counted. According to a lawsuit filed late Friday by voting rights advocates, this is "contrary to a court decision on provisional ballots a week ago and contrary to statements made by attorneys for Husted at an Oct. 24 court hearing."
