BREAKING NEWS: Bob McDonnell

Posted by: victorb 6/27/2016 10:16 PM

BREAKING NEWS: Bob McDonnell
Monday, June 27, 2016
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday tossed out the bribery conviction of former Virginia Governor Robert McDonnell, who was found guilty of accepting thousands of dollars in cash and gifts. And it spares McDonnell from having to report to prison to serve a two-year sentence. Prosecutors could seek to put McDonnell on trial again but with different jury instructions on the definition of corruption. But in sending the case back, the unanimous opinion cuts the heart out of the government's case against McDonnell. The ruling narrows the definition of "an official act," and in so doing would make it very hard for the government to retry the case.

Wednesday, 
June 15, 2016

When he’s not busy flying for the Navy, local Author Todd Tavolazzi spends his free time writing fiction. His short stories published in Potluck Magazine and The Subtopian are full of quick-witted dialogue and subjects ranging from a jailed ex-monk to the most feared mobster in the country. From 2011 to 2014, Tavolazzi served the United States' Sixth Fleet in Naples, Italy when he was compelled to write his first novel, "Looking Into the Sun: A Novel of the Syrian Conflict." While studying international relations and regional conflict in the Middle East, he witnessed first-hand the tragic toll of the Syrian conflict. Tavolazzi hopes to raise awareness about those affected and is donating a percentage of his book sales to Save the Children.
