Maryland Delegate Lawton Dies, Police Claim "Natural Causes"

Damn Comcast!Maryland Delegate Jane Lawton left her Montgomery County home this morning prepared to do battle with the cable companies as a speaker at the Department of Justice Antitrust Division's 2007 Telecommunications Symposium. Jane planned on talking to her audience about local government's constraints on competition in the cable television market and how that's being changed by telephone companies - i.e., she was weighing in on the Comcast - Verizon FiOS wars currently being waged in suburbia.


After giving her speech at this open forum, which undoubtedly included "representatives" of the cable industry, she dropped dead. The police are claiming that Jane had a heart attack, but Wonkette finds the timing too suspicious to believe that. RIP, Jane. You were probably a really nice lady and I really like my FiOS.

Tough week for Suzanne Israel Tufts, the nice Trump campaign lady with no experience doing investigations who was almost appointed to oversee, or at least overlook, the Interior Department's four ongoing investigations into Ryan Zinke's "ethics," for want of a better word. Not only did she not get that nice job as acting inspector general after the media got hold of the story and everyone said it stank to high heaven, but Tufts, who had been employed at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, suddenly up and quit that job too late Friday. Pour out a 40 (gallon barrel of industrial waste, into a poor community's water source) for her, won't you?

Once again, the Trump administration is coming after birth control. Specifically, they are looking to issue rules that would roll back the Affordable Care Act mandate that requires that most employers provide insurance that covers it, which would leave god knows how many women across the country without access. The administration had previously attempted to eliminate this mandate last year, but said attempt was blocked by two federal judges on the grounds that doing so would cause "serious and irreparable harm."

But now they're trying again, because forcing people to have unwanted children just seems like a really fantastic time to them, I guess. If these rules manage to get passed, and if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade as it is expected to, the Right will soon be closer than ever to the future filled with barefoot and pregnant women making them sandwiches that they have always dreamed of. For the rest of us, it will be a pretty shitty time.
