Harris Flubs Opening Statement: Let’s ‘Successfully Prosecute the Case of 4 More Years of Donald Trump’

first_imgSen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) made an unfortunate blunder in her opening statement and stated that she is prepared to “prosecute the case of four more years of Donald Trump.”Harris, who had been experiencing notable mic issues throughout the debate, stated that the U.S. needs to “fight for the best of who we are.”“This is not a new fight for us as Americans. We have always been prepared to fight for our ideals. We have always been a nation that fights for the best of who we are. My parents met when they were active in the civil rights movement,” she said.She joked that she and her sister grew up around “fighters” who “spent full time marching and shouting about this thing called justice,” and promised that she is “prepared to march” with Americans to fight “for the best of who we are.”Her gaffe came toward the end of her opening statement, telling the audience that she was prepared to “successfully prosecute the case of four more years of Donald Trump.” She paused and added “and against him” with a chuckle.last_img read more

Feds looking at former USC star, AD Pat Haden in college admissions scandal, report says

first_imgFederal investigators are looking into any alleged involvement Pat Haden, former Southern California athletics director and star quarterback, had in the national college admissions scandal, according to The Wall Street Journal.Investigators are questioning ties Haden had with William Singer, who was the alleged organizer of a cheating scheme that altered test scores that helped students get into universities. Athletic officials were accused of collecting hundreds of thousands of dollars to help students get into schools like USC, Stanford, UCLA, Georgetown and Wake Forest, disguising them as recruits.  North Carolina coach Mack Brown has knee surgery done by former player The WSJ noted, citing an unidentified source, that Haden introduced Singer to former USC senior associate athletics director Donna Heinel and said Singer would be “someone Ms. Heinel should work with” because of his connections.In response to the report, USC released a statement (via USA Today) acknowledging the school is still conducting an internal investigation and it “will continue to cooperate fully with all law enforcement and regulatory investigations. Ensuring the integrity of the admissions process remains a top priority of university leadership.”According to court documents released in March, the scheme centered around a California-based non-profit called the Key Worldwide Foundation (KWF) founded by Singer. Vikings COO Kevin Warren becomes Big Ten’s first African American commissioner Officials said parents, including several celebrities such as actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, paid Singer “approximately $25 million” from 2011 to February 2019 “to bribe coaches and university administrators to designate their children as recruited athletes, or other favored admissions categories, in violation of the duty of honest services the coaches and administrators owed to their employers, thereby facilitating the children’s admission to the universities.” Singer has pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy, money laundering conspiracy, conspiracy to defraud and obstruction of justice.After news of the scandal broke, USC parted ways with four members of its athletics department: Heinel, women’s soccer coaches Ali Khosroshahin and Laura Janke, and men’s and women’s water polo coach Jovan Vavic. Haden hasn’t been charged for any part of the scandal and just recently become a person of interest in the case, the WSJ reported. Haden wrote in a statement provided to the Journal through his son-in-law: “Like many people, I was introduced to Mr. Singer several years ago by a friend. I was unaware of his illegal activities and had no ongoing relationship with him whatsoever.” Related News SEC will allow stadiums, arenas to sell alcohol beginning this seasonlast_img read more
