Yet another round of unsavory posts from Joy Reid’s former blog have surfaced. In these particular posts, the MSNBC host dabbles in conspiracy theories, and viciously mocks Sen.

Just months after he was appointed Baltimore police commissioner, Darryl De Sousa resigned following charges that he had failed to file federal taxes for three years, WJZ-TV reported.
De Sousa, who initially expressed an intention to correct the matter while continuing in his position, was facing pressure from the Fraternal Order of Police to step aside.
What’s the story?
Last week, De Sousa was charged for not filing taxes in 2013, 2014, and 2015. In a statement, he apologized for embarrassing the city and stated his commitment to “resolving this situation as quickly as possible.”
The Baltimore City Fraternal Order of Police said it felt “very strongly” that De Sousa needed to resign his post, but Mayor Catherine Pugh said she still had “full confidence” in him as commissioner.
Pugh took some responsibility Wednesday for appointing De Sousa and promised to implement a more thorough vetting process for future candidates. The current vetting form does not ask about taxes.
“I own the selection of Darryl De Sousa for Baltimore City, but I don’t control people’s personal lives,” Pugh said. “We will ask those questions going forward.”
“We want to make sure the next candidate for this position is well scrutinized,” she added.
De Sousa, who worked for the Baltimore Police Department for 30 years, was named commissioner in January after the previous commissioner was fired. He is scheduled to appear in court Monday.
Baltimore has dealt with an increase in violence recently, and the police department has been embroiled in a corruption scandal.
Pugh said the city has begun a nationwide search for the next commissioner. In the interim, Gary Tuggle will serve as acting commissioner.
“My focus is on crime, the Consent Decree, and moving this agency forward,” Tuggle said in a memo to the department. “The sworn and civilian staff here have done a great job and the results of your hard work continues to show as we have seen across the board reductions in violent crime. We have a long way to go, but I know you are all up for the challenge. Thank you for your professionalism during these tough times. We will succeed because you all are the professionals who keep our agency moving forward.”

The glossy publication Town & Country apologized to former White House intern Monica Lewinsky on Thursday for disinviting her to its social change summit after learning former President Bill Clinton was also in attendance. Clinton and Lewinsky infamously engaged in an affair during Clinton’s first term in office and into the beginning of his second. Lewinsky was an intern at the White House, beginning as a 22-year-old, from 1995 to 1996. The news of the affair first broke in January 1998, and the resulting scandal led to Clinton’s impeachment by the House of Representatives in December 1998 after he lied under oath about his relationship with Lewinsky and obstructed justice. As a result of her newfound ignominy, Lewinsky was subjected to intense media scrutiny and cyberbullying. Lewinsky now engages in social activism against cyberbullying. Twenty years after the scandal first propelled her into the limelight, Monica Lewinsky was disinvited from Town & Country’s annual philanthropy summit Wednesday evening. The reason? Bill Clinton, who has been accused of sexual assault and harassment on multiple occasions by numerous women, was in attendance.
