Filner's Alford plea

On Monday, Democrat Rep. Bob Filner made an Alford plea -- basically he admitted the government could prove him guilty.

Filner was fined $100 and has to write a letter of apology.

In her complaint, [airline worker Joanne Kay] Kunkel said of Filner: “He wanted people in the back office to help him. I told him they were busy. I said he needs to stop. He told me, 'You can't stop me.' I said, 'The police can.'

“At this point, I am yelling for co-workers to call the police. He gets past me into the back office, yelling at other agents. He again pushes me out of the way near the doorway.”

Filner maintained nothing violent occurred.

“I want to make clear that I did not strike, push or shove anyone,” he said in his statement. “It's very important to me that the record be clear on this point. Nor did I seek any sort of special treatment because I was a congressman. I didn't tell the United personnel where I worked or what I did for a living. I was just trying to find out where our flight's bags were.”

Let's just say that I don't generally give any politician the benefit of the doubt when it comes to "Do you know who I am?" moments.

I continue to be annoyed by online media companies skimping on the copy editors.

If you disagree, we may feud over the issue.

Is it true that Adam Schiff used his official position as House Intelligence Chair to subpoena the phone records of a journalist?

Sounds dangerous, right @Acosta? https://twitter.com/MarshaBlackburn/status/1618576092159410178

Adam Schiff used his official position as House Intelligence Chair to subpoena the phone records of a journalist and the top Republican on his committee.

Then he released the records to intimidate his opponents.
