Seattle voters can now donate to local political candidates with money given to them by taxpayers. The public financing system is called Democracy Vouchers. Under the program, each registered voter in Seattle will annually receive four $25 vouchers to assign to
any eligible candidate, or candidates, for election to municipal office. The program is funded by a $3 million citywide increase in the real
estate tax. The system is "first come, first served", with only the first 47,000 vouchers assigned by voters being honored. So now, voters are instant donors (albeit small donors), and even non-citizens who are in the country legally who can’t vote can get get $100 worth of vouchers. What could possibly go wrong?
Southwest Airlines Guitar Entertainment Crises. Southwest Airlines is known for their pilots and flight attendants who are in-flight jokesters or humorists… and most people don’t mind. But now the airlines has added in-flight performers—guitarists– who by all accounts are quite good at giving passengers a concert, but some travelers just want peace and quiet. Why would Southwest risk losing customers by using “traveling minstrels” on board? What’s their thinking?

Judicial Watch has announced that federal Judge Kollar-Kotelly would personally review, in camera, redacted material from emails
discussing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of iPads and iPhones during her tenure at the State Department. The court will
review the blacked-out information so as to better ascertain whether the government’s “misconduct exception” would require the r lease of the full emails. Generally speaking, the government misconduct exception prevents government agencies from withholding
information that would shed light on government wrongdoing under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Judge Kollar-Kotelly also
ordered the State Department to file an affidavit addressing why it should not have to search new Clinton emails recovered. In taking
these steps, the court rejected arguments by the State Department and the Sessions Justice Department. Why in the world would the
current administration not welcome the unveiling of Clinton’s emails?
