U.S. drug agents' alleged sex parties go back to 2001: lawmakers

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 04/15/2015 - 00:56
By Lindsay Dunsmuir WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents in Colombia were taking part in alleged sex parties with prostitutes funded by drug cartels years earlier than previously known, U.S. lawmakers said on Tuesday. Several DEA agents were taking part in these parties in Bogota as early as 2001, said a summary of a DEA report released by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform at a hearing on the misconduct. "This new internal report describes not one or two isolated incidents, but literally dozens of parties with prostitutes," Democratic Representative Elijah Cummings said at the hearing, where lawmakers grilled DEA Administrator Michele Leonhart. The hearing came on the heels of a separate March 26 report by the Justice Department's Office of the Inspector General that described similar allegations between 2005 and 2008.

Florida legislature passes bill to scrap gay adoptions ban

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 04/15/2015 - 00:54
By Bill Cotterell TALLAHASSEE (Reuters) - The Florida Senate sent Governor Rick Scott a bill Tuesday repealing the state's 1977 ban on adoptions by gay parents that was struck down by an appeals court in 2010. The ban, which was imposed at the height of a campaign by singer Anita Bryant that revoked a gay-rights ordinance in Miami, has been unenforceable since the court ruled against it. The Republican-controlled legislature included the repeal language in a large package providing financial incentives for state employees adopting children. “This bill does some very good things, but there is a poison pill in this bill that will not allow me to vote for it,” Senator Alan Hays, a Republican, said.
