This Has All Been an Infuriating Sham
To seasoned political watchers and people who have spent the last two years gradually becoming more depressed and hopeless—the Venn diagram of those two things really ought be a circle—this news may come as no surprise, but it is galling nonetheless. Sen. Chuck Grassley, chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee and old, old man, confirmed this morning that he does not think the pathetic farce of an FBI investigation into Brett Kavanaugh revealed anything new and thus will be voting to confirm him.

Michael Stipe, Erykah Badu, and more will protest against Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination for the Supreme Court later this week.

Texas backs school that expelled girl over pledge of allegiance
The state of Texas is backing a school that expelled a black student after she refused to stand for the flag during the US Pledge of Allegiance.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton intervened on Tuesday to defend the Houston-area school district in its lawsuit with the student, India Landry.
Ms Landry, 18, filed a lawsuit after she was expelled last year from Windfern High School.
The case comes amid political tensions over respect for the American flag.
"School children cannot unilaterally refuse to participate in the pledge," Mr Paxton - the state's most senior law enforcement officer - said in a news release.
Gay man sues Washington Teachers Union for discrimination
A gay former employee of the Washington Teachers Union filed a lawsuit in federal court on Sept. 18 accusing the union, its president, and its former chief of staff of subjecting him to a hostile work environment and later firing him because of his sexual orientation.
Upper Marlboro, Md., resident Barry Hobson, 36, charges in the lawsuit that he was subjected to unfair and discriminatory treatment and harassment by WTU’s then chief of staff, Dorothy Egbufor. The lawsuit says Egbufor served as Hobson’s immediate supervisor shortly after he was hired as a receptionist and office assistant on Jan. 15, 2017.
Hobson’s attorneys filed the lawsuit on his behalf in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. In addition to Egbufor, the lawsuit names as defendants Washington Teachers Union President Elizabeth Davis and the union itself, which represents 5,000 D.C. public school teachers.

Anti-LGBTQ Groups Sue Louisiana Governor to Stop Drag Queen Story Hour
In an attempt to stop a drag queen story hour event at Lafayette Public Library in Louisiana, two antigay Christian groups have filed suit against the town of Lafayette, the governor of Louisiana, and the library.
Chris Sevier, who with others filed suit on behalf of Warriors for Christ and Special Forces of Liberty, had previously sued five states claiming he had married his computer in New Mexico and they should recognize the union, reports local TV station KATC. Those suits were a stunt to challenge marriage equality. He has filed several other bizarre, unsuccessful suits -- against Apple, claiming that an erroneous URL caused him to develop a pornography addiction, and against members of Congress who displayed Pride flags.

Brad Pitt built dozens of homes in New Orleans after Katrina. Now they're falling apart and residents are suing.
Kamaria Allen had no plans to return to the Lower 9th Ward after losing everything in Hurricane Katrina. But then she saw the new houses.
Billed as flood-safe and futuristic, the Make It Right homes towered over vacant lots in pops of teal, lemon and lavender. Houses like that just didn’t exist in the working-class, mostly black section of New Orleans that Allen’s family had called home for four generations — and definitely not for $130,000.
“I called it my Mardi Gras float,” Allen says of 1826 Reynes Street, the roof deck-topped home that now sits abandoned — mushrooms growing from its split siding, wooden boards propping up its sagging roof. Allen bought the house in 2011 from the Make It Right Foundation, a charity formed by Brad Pitt to help Lower 9th Ward residents return home after the hurricane.
Church sex abuse: Kentucky attorney general wants to investigate state Catholic dioceses
The Kentucky attorney general will seek the Legislature's permission to form a statewide grand jury to investigate Kentucky's Catholic dioceses in line with last month's damning report on Pennsylvania Catholic churches.
That report showed church leaders protected more than 300 "predator priests" for decades in six Pennsylvania dioceses because they were more interested in safeguarding the church and the abusers than in ministering to victims.
Deputy Attorney General J. Michael Brown said his office has been in contact with Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro and that his staff will "in the near future" draft legislation to put to lawmakers in Frankfort.
