The Equal Access Act states that if the school allows any non-curricular group whose purpose is not related to the school's curriculum that cannot deny that access to another group. More than a dozen community members addressed the school board. The majority of them were against the club's formation."

Obama Accuser Larry Sinclair Arrested After DC Press Conference


Earlier today I posted about a press conference that Larry Sinclair was holding at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. as well as his prior criminal record, which had been unearthed by the website Politico.

Sinclair2At the end of today's press conference, some of which I've posted AFTER THE JUMP, Sinclair apparently rushed out of the room without taking any more questions. Turns out, the police were there to arrest him:

"Sinclair was arrested by DC Police after 2 US Marshalls showed up and presented a warrant from the State of Delaware for Sinclair’s arrest. Montgomery Blair Sibley, who’s had his law license suspended by the District of Columbia and Florida, and who was previously Sinclair’s attorney, reviewed the warrant and then Sinclair was led away.] Speculation is that the arrest stemmed from a Delaware warrant, although there is also an outstanding felony warrant out for Sinclair from the Pueblo County (CO) Sheriff’s Department."

More at Reason, DailyKos, and Politico.

And AmericaBlog wonders if there is a McCain connection?

Criminal with Seedy Obama Claims Takes Stage in D.C.


You may remember Larry Sinclair, the limo-riding Obama accuser whose YouTube video got some attention a while back for its claims about the then Illinois lawmaker, as well as his subsequent attempts to prove he was telling the truth (he failed).

The National Press Club is giving him a platform today in Washington, D.C., reports Politico, which today also reports on Sinclair's mile-long rap sheet:

"Public records and court filings reveal that he has a 27-year criminal record, with a specialty in crimes involving deceit. The record includes forgery charges in two states, one of which drew Sinclair a 16-year jail sentence. The Pueblo County, Colorado, Sheriff's Office also has an outstanding warrant for Sinclair's arrest for forging an acquaintance's signature and stealing her tax refunds. 'It is what it is,' said Sinclair's spokesman, Montgomery Blair Sibley, of his client's criminal record. 'He's not hiding from it, he's not denying it.'"

As far as the Press Club goes, "Press Club President Sylvia Smith said Sinclair had rented space at the club, which doesn't censor speakers. 'I'm not aware that we've ever turned anybody away for content,' she said, adding that Sinclair's allegations 'don't seem very credible.'"

News: Eric Bana, Puddle, Steve-O, 90210, John Gibson, Jamaica

road.jpg International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association condemns Jamaica: “We call immediately on Jamaica’s community leaders to cease their oppression. We will continue to speak up and to spotlight these cruel and bigoted actions before tourism and business leaders everywhere. IGLTA is in complete solidarity with Jamaica’s own LGBT leadership, J-FLAG. Therefore, like J-flag, it is not our intention to provoke reprisals or political condemnation in Jamaica by supporting a global tourism boycott. We understand this step could be counter-productive to making true progress in that Caribbean nation, and instead we will focus on education, publicity and market competition to highlight and help curb these terrible abuses."

road.jpg John Gibson, the FOX radio host who mocked Heath Ledger following the actor's death, has lost his TV spot: "The network confirmed this week that 'America’s Election HQ,' a program that displaced 'The Big Story' temporarily last month, would continue indefinitely. The program’s hosts, Bill Hemmer and Megyn Kelly, also anchor the network’s mid-morning newscast and are seen as rising stars on the channel. The change was first reported by the blog John Gibson, the longtime host of 'The Big Story,' will continue to have a role on television, the network said, although it appears that his future for now lies mostly on radio. For two years Mr. Gibson, a conservative commentator, has been the host of a three-hour program for Fox News Radio immediately following his television show."

Planetroad.jpg The case for another Earth-sized planet in our solar system, beyond the orbit of Neptune: "A newly released paper shows that may very well be the case. A team of scientists ran a whole mess of simulations, and found that a small planet (in this case, around half the size of the Earth) could have formed inside Neptune’s orbit (where there was plenty of material in the early solar system), gotten tossed into a bigger orbit by Neptune, and then knocked around the orbits of the iceballs, distorting their orbits and creating the Kuiper Cliff."

road.jpg Northern Irish councillor calls opening of gay bar 'foolish': "A veteran Strabane councillor has said he believes there is 'not a need' for a gay bar in the town. James O'Kane, an Independent member of Strabane District Council, claimed it would be 'very foolish.' The North West gay community has widely welcomed the annoucement of Strabane's first gay bar. However, speaking to the 'Journal,' Councillor O'Kane said: 'My own assumption is that it would be very very foolish to open it, it wouldn't be welcome. I'm a pioneer myself so I would not be frequenting these places anyway but I couldn't see it operating in the town. In this day and age we are all liberal but I can't see a need for it, I suppose only time will tell,' Colr. O'Kane said."
