Sen. Kaine Refuses To Comment On Virginia Church’s Decision To Remove Washington Plaque

Virginia Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine ran away from The Daily Caller Tuesday when asked about his thoughts on the decision of a local church in Alexandria to remove plaques honoring President George Washington, a founder and parishioner of the historic church.

When Will the ‘Harvey Effect’ Reach Academia?

His career was too important. Despite allegations of sexual harassment that were substantiated by an internal investigation, the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law allowed Dean Sujit Choudhry to stay on the job. In 2015, Tyann Sorrell, Choudhry’s assistant, described how the dean had pursued her for kisses and long hugs over a period of months. Choudhry initially held onto his professorship and benefits. Even after an uproar, the university, which boasts a “zero tolerance” policy, kept him on payroll (he was pushed to resign as dean after Sorrell sued him for sexual harassment in 2016, but he remained on the law-school faculty).

Shame On You Matt Lauer And Megyn Kelly: NBC Fails Victims Again After Slanted Corey Feldman Coverage

Less than a month after NBC buried the Harvey Weinstein story that Ronan Farrow ultimately brought to the New Yorker, the network is under fire again for their coverage of the Corey Feldman child sex abuse scandal. On Monday, October 30, 2017, both Matt Lauer and Megyn Kelly interviewed Feldman about allegations he has repeated for decades regarding a pedophile ring he states abused him and best friend Corey Haim. Instead of focusing on the nature of the allegations, the two separately grilled Feldman for his $10 million fundraiser to self-produce and direct a movie that will depict his abuse. 

Both Matt and Megyn urged Feldman to publicly name the abusers, an act Feldman won’t do without the assistance of legal counsel due to California’s statute of limitations.

Swiss prosecutors seek widening of secrecy law to bankers abroad

Swiss prosecutors are seeking a court ruling that would make it easier to convict whistleblowers for breaking the country’s bank secrecy law wherever they are in the world, legal documents show. 

The Swiss Banking Act requires employees of Swiss-regulated banks to keep client information confidential, but a number of staff have leaked account details to foreign authorities in the past decade as Western governments crack down on tax evasion.

What is going on is that places like WikiLeaks has made sharing secrets a lot easier.  Swiss banks thrive on privately funneling questionable cash though doors.  But people who see something they believe is illegal so they go online and release the member's information.  Switzerland wants to stop that to support real world money.  I would also believe it's to ward off security concerns from blockchain currencies like BitCoin and Etherium.
