U.S. HOUSE REP. KEITH ELLISON IS DENYING ALLEGATIONS THAT HE ABUSED A WOMAN HE WAS ONCE INVOLVED WITH -- THE ALLEGATIONS ARE COMING FROM THE WOMAN AND HER SON.
THOUGH NO ONE ASKED HER, MIDDLE-AGED NOBODY ALYSSA MILANO CALLED THESE REPORTERS TO INSIST, "THIS IS NOT TRUE! FIRST OF ALL, HE IS A DEMOCRAT AND DEMOCRATS NEVER, EVER COMMIT ABUSE. SECOND IT IS JUST HER WORD AGAINST HIS!"
AND HER SON'S WORD.
"TWO PEOPLE AGAINST ONE MEMBER OF CONGRESS? THE MEMBER OF CONGRESS ALWAYS OUTWEIGHS ANYONE ELSE! I LEARNED THAT WHILE STUDYING GEOPOLITICS WITH TONY DANZA ON THE SET OF WHO'S THE BOSS!"
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
Because one thing has finally concluded, it does not mean that the next step is nearly complete. The recounts. Iraq completed the recounts and finally released the totals. If you've forgotten, the US was among those having a hissy fit over the results of the May 12th election. Also having fits? The sore losers.
May 12th, Iraq held parliamentary elections. May 12th. And the hissy fits and foot stamping and crying has been going on ever since from sore losers. For three months, forming a government had to be put off. And what were the new results?
MIDDLE EAST MONITOR notes:
The manual recount of votes cast in Iraq's May elections has been completed, with cleric Muqtada al-Sadr's alliance retaining all 54 of the seats it won.
With Sadr's Sairoon Alliance confirmed as winners of the legistlative election, a government can now be formed, almost three months after the polls.
Allegations of fraud prompted the recount, but the only change that came from it was an extra seat for the Conquest Alliance of pro-Iranian former paramilitary fighters, which remains in second place. There are 329 seats in Iraq's Council of Representatives.
AFP adds, "Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi's bloc remains in third with just 42 seats."
Three months wasted. No real change in the votes. Hayder al-Abadi remains a loser. A choice that the Iraqi people didn't not want imposed upon them again. Second place? That's a rejection. Third place for a sitting prime minister? That's "get your ass out of the country." It's a message the low turnout also sent.
