Scott Walker questioned on conspiracy allegations

Scott Walker Criminal Conspiracy: Wisconsin prosecutors allege that Gov. Scott Walker was at the “center of an effort to illegally coordinate fundraising among conservative groups to help his campaign” during recall elections in 2011 and 2012, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Gov. Scott Walker is not facing charges; the allegations were revealed when documents from a lawsuit brought by the Wisconsin Club for Growth against the state to halt an investigation into its campaign finance improprieties were unsealed.

The 300: Barack Obama announced on Thursday that he would send 300 U.S. Special Forces soldiers to Iraq to gather intelligence and perhaps train Iraq security forces engaged in a tough fight with ISIL Jihadists. With better intelligence, Obama said, the U.S. will be able to, maybe, use air power to help destroy ISIL.

Presbyterians Vote Gay Marriage Christian: The largest Presbyterian denomination in the U.S. voted at a recent gathering to allow their clergy to perform same-sex marriages. The General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church took a vote on the matter, which passed with 76 percent approval.

No Apology From IRS Chief: Republican investigators are accusing IRS Commissioner John Koskinen of “keeping secrets” about the Lois Lerner scandal, which he is refusing to apologize for. In recent days, the IRS has failed to produce subpoenaed documents, saying that the computers they lived in were recycled.

King County Sheriff’s Scandal: The alleged misdeeds of a King County sheriff’s deputy – charged Thursday for prostitution, theft, and drug dealing – may reach deep into the department. Sheriff John Urquhart said that there’s an investigation ongoing to find out whether other commanders and deputies knew about the activities. “This is a form of police corruption,” Urquhart said.

Times Won’t Use Redskins: The Seattle Times’ sports editor Don Shelton says the paper won’t use the team name Washington Redskins in its NFL coverage, but it will use the name when discussing the controversy surrounding the name.
