Department of Justice Civil Rights Division Voting Section career employee Stephanie Celandine Gyamfi perjured herself three times during an internal investigation, the Heritage Foundation’s Hans Von Spakovsky reports for Pajamas Media.
According to Spakovsky, the DOJ inspector general recently launched an investigation into several document leaks between 2005 and 2007. “The genesis of Ms. Gyamfi’s perjury is apparently rooted in political attacks on the [George W.]
Bush Justice Department,” Spakovsky wrote. “Throughout 2005-2007, numerous attorney-client privileged documents, confidential personnel information, and other sensitive legal materials were leaked from inside the Voting Section to the Washington Post and various left-wing blogs.”
A public embrace between two female sailors from California is being hailed as “the kiss heard ’round the world” by activists who fought for a repeal of the ban on gays and lesbians serving openly in the military.
Petty Officer 2nd Class Marissa Gaeta from Placerville shared a kiss with partner Petty Officer 3rd Class Citlalic Snell of Los Angeles on Wednesday as Gaeta’s ship, the amphibious landing ship Oak Hill, returned to base at Virginia Beach, Va., after an 80-day deployment to Central America.
“It’s something new, that’s for sure,” Gaeta, 23, told reporters after the kiss. “It’s nice to be able to be myself. It’s been a long time coming.”
The two met while training to maintain and operate weapons systems aboard ship. They’ve been dating for two years.
By age 23, up to 41 percent of American adolescents and young adults have been arrested at least once for something other than a minor traffic violation, according to a new study published today in the journal Pediatrics.
The study gives no indication of how many of these young people committed violent crimes versus how many were rounded up for more minor infractions, such as disturbing the peace. But the study’s authors say such a high percentage of arrests may point to a host of potential health and behavioral problems that put young people at risk for criminal activity.
“An arrest usually happens in context. There are usually other things going on in a kid’s life,” said study author Robert Brame, professor of criminal justice and criminology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
- Girls as young as 15 being coerced into group sex
- Teenagers pressured into it by influence of pornography
- Nearly half of those who had group sex reported partners did not use condoms
Girls as young as 15 are taking part in group sex, with more than half being coerced into doing it, a study has revealed.
Researchers at Boston University’s School of Public Health found one in 13 teenage girls reported having a ‘multi-person sex’ (MPS) experience – often initiated by boyfriends who had been watching pornography.
The average age of the girls who had experienced MPS was just 15.6 years old – under the legal age of consent in Massachusetts, which is 16.
And nearly half of those said their sexual partners did not use condoms, raising concerns over the spread of sexually transmitted diseases.

The President and his family are traveling separately to Hawaii because he wants resolve the payroll tax cut issue before leaving Washington – and his wife does not want to wait.
But the advanced trip and the cost that comes with it – as much as $100,000 (flight and security) – adds to an already expensive vacation for the taxpayers.
Hawaii Reporter research shows the total cost for the President’s visit for taxpayers far exceeded $1.5 million in 2010 – but is even more costly this year because he extended his vacation by three days and the cost for Air Force One travel has jumped since last assessed in 2000. In addition, Hawaii Reporter was able to obtain more specifics about the executive expenditures.
The total cost (based on what is known) for the 17-day vacation roundtrip vacation to Hawaii for the President, his family and staff has climbed to more than $4 million.
