Nevada police say investigating alleged political extortion plot

Yahoo! National News - Sun, 02/01/2015 - 11:38
(Reuters) - Las Vegas police are investigating a possible case of extortion intended to sway a Nevada legislator to change his vote for assembly speaker, searching a property on Saturday as part of the probe, authorities said. The investigation began in December when newly elected Assemblyman Chris Edwards, a Republican, was approached about changing his vote on the question, Las Vegas Metropolitan police said in a statement. Las Vegas police said no arrests have been made and that their investigators would conduct interviews over the coming days. Edwards, who has served on active duty and on reserve in the U.S. Navy, is on the Assembly Education Committee as well as the Natural Resources, Agriculture and Mining Committee and the Ways and Means Committee, according to his legislative page.

Arizona's Sheriff Joe picks Patriots; inmates to get popcorn

Yahoo! National News - Sun, 02/01/2015 - 11:14
By Daniel Wallis PHOENIX (Reuters) - The Arizona lawman who bills himself as "America's toughest sheriff" predicts the New England Patriots will win the Super Bowl and says some inmates will be allowed popcorn as they watch Sunday's face-off with the Seattle Seahawks. Joe Arpaio, the 82-year-old sheriff of Maricopa County where the National Football League's championship game will be played, held an event on Saturday at which he popped the popcorn and forecast the Patriots will triumph 27-17. He also took a cheeky jab at his favored team over the "deflategate" scandal, in which the Patriots are accused of using under-inflated footballs during their AFC championship triumph against Indianapolis.
