Entertainment moguls are fighting over who will host Hollywood fundraisers for the 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana. Democratic donors are showering him with praise. And he has been repeatedly selling out fundraisers across the U.S. Whether the gay former military officer and Rhodes scholar will be able to capitalize on his improbable star turn and build out a campaign with staying power remains to be seen. What is indisputable, however, is that donors are clamoring for more. That could help thaw a Democratic money game that’s been largely frozen during the early months of the primary, with many major financiers waiting for the crowded field to thin. “He absolutely must be part of the conversation. I want to see him in the top tier,” said Susie … [Read more...] about Dem donors swoon, sometimes fight, over Pete Buttigieg
Paul Egan Detroit Free Press Published 6:01 AM EDT Apr 2, 2019 LANSING – The fight between Enbridge and the State of Michigan over the future of the Line 5 oil pipeline appears headed for the courts, but it was unclear Monday whether the Canadian energy giant or Gov.

Whitmer's directive came soon after the release of an opinion she requested from Attorney General Dana Nessel, a fellow Democrat who also campaigned on shutting down Line 5. Nessel said … [Read more...] about What’s next in fight over Enbridge Line 5 pipeline

Dezi Rios was having a good time the evening of May 29, 2018. The San Antonio Police Officers Association was hosting a dinner celebrating another batch of graduating cadets at Ajuáa!, a Mexican restaurant on the Northwest Side, and Rios, then an instructor at the police academy, could be “very social” at such events, according to one officer in attendance. His wife and two sons were with him and he was joking with colleagues and cadets, drink in hand. By his own estimate, he had five mixed drinks in a 2½-hour period, he would later tell Internal Affairs investigators.

Moreno declined and Rios left the … [Read more...] about A cop’s night escalated from police party to strip club shootout. Records paint a cloudy picture of how it happened.
