With a nod and a wink, Republicans build 2016 campaign machines

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 03/06/2015 - 14:14

Governor Walker speaks at the 42nd annual Conservative Political Action ConferenceBy Emily Flitter NEW YORK (Reuters) - Asked last week about his agenda if elected, presumptive Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker began: "Should I choose to be a candidate..."     Then he added with a grin: "My lawyers love it when I say that."     Like the other would-be Republican candidates who took the stage over three days in Washington at the Conservative Political Action Conference, the Wisconsin governor studiously avoided mentioning any plans for the 2016 presidential election.     The pantomime is crucial – it allows candidates to work closely with their funding organizations to rake in big money donations without breaking campaign finance laws. Once they launch their campaign or even say they are “testing the waters", they face far tighter restrictions on their fundraising.

U.S. government settles with Ohio newspaper over detention of journalists

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 03/06/2015 - 13:36
(Reuters) - The U.S. government agreed to pay an Ohio newspaper $18,000 to settle a federal lawsuit filed by the organization after a reporter and a photographer were detained after taking photos of a tank manufacturing plant. Toledo Blade reporter Tyrel Linkhorn and photographer Jetta Fraser were detained and had their equipment confiscated on last March by armed military police after Fraser took pictures from the road of the Lima Army Tank Plant, the complaint said. The government admitted no liability or fault in the incident, according to the settlement document. "The harassment and detention of The Blade's reporter and photographer, the confiscation of their equipment, and the brazen destruction of lawful photographs cannot be justified by a claim of military authority or by the supposed imperatives of the national security state," said Toledo Blade attorney Fritz Byers, according to the paper.
