Obama campaign office windows shot out
Vandal fired a pellet gun into the Westchester office of Obama's re-election campaign
LOS ANGELES (CNS) - A vandal fired a pellet gun into the Westchester office of President Barack Obama's re-election campaign, shattering windows and a glass door but causing no injuries among the four people inside, police said today.
Officers went to the office in the 6700 block of South Centinela Avenue near the San Diego (405) Freeway around 7:25 p.m. Thursday in response to a report of glass breaking, said Officer Sara Faden, a Los Angeles Police Department spokeswoman.
``There were four campaign workers in a back part of the offices and they heard the noise of glass. When they went to the front, they saw the glass with pellet gunshots in it,'' added Sgt. Richard Parks of the department's Pacific Station.
``Someone used a pellet gun and broke several windows and a glass door,'' he said. An LAPD investigation was under way. There were no immediate arrests.
President Barack Obama is counter-punching furiously to prevent a series of potential scandals from overwhelming his second-term agenda.
With a trio of moves, the suddenly beleaguered president fought back on Wednesday against Republican attacks that his administration defied accountability for controversies involving IRS targeting of conservative groups, the secret subpoena of journalists’ phone records and erroneous talking points in the immediate aftermath of last year’s Benghazi terrorist attack.
The congressional hearings on May 8 may become the beginning of the end for Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Three credible eyewitnesses of the Benghazi consulate assault last Sept. 11, 2012, finally got to give their accounting of it. They had been kept from the FBI, all committees of Congress—Senate and House, media and anyone else in the world. It was through the Whistleblower Program that they came to tell the real story.
The Senate’s Gang of Eight have put together an 844-page monstrosity known as the Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act, legislation that President Barack Obama says he “basically approves” of.
The crafters of this essentially unreadable bill were senators Dick Durbin (Illinois), Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Michael Bennett (D-Colo.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Jeff Flake (Ariz.), John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.).
The Crenshaw Subway Coalition is gearing up for a possible showdown over additional funding for the Crenshaw-to-LAX light rail line, including a Leimert Park Village Station, but may have to await a May 23 decision by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority Board on just how bruising—or necessary—a showdown will be.
In a flier proclaiming “Reaching Higher Together at LAX,” the New Frontier Democratic Club has announced that it will hold a meeting concerning issues involving the Los Angeles International Airport.
