Police investigating protest at Tucker Carlson’s home as possible hate crime (The Hill)

Police in Washington, D.C., are investigating an incident outside Tucker Carlson’s home, including whether a spray-painted anarchist symbol on Carlson’s driveway represents a hate crime.

A crowd of people gatherer outside the Fox News host’s home on Wednesday night, shouting insults and, according to the police statement, defacing property.

“We welcome those who come here to exercise their First Amendment rights in a safe and peaceful manner; however, we prohibit them from breaking the law,” the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement to The Hill. [Read More]

Larry Felder, Candidate (Amazon)

When a successful Washington journalist hits his late 50s, he’s usually on a glide path to either more of the same or a quiet, comfortable retirement. Not Larry Felder. When an opportunity to run for Congress presents itself, Felder abandons his usual caution and his longtime career as a columnist and decides to run. Meanwhile, his campaign manager (a smitten young lady named Charlie) is running for something else—Felder’s heart. It doesn’t take long for sparks and complications to start flying. Larry Felder, Candidate is a close-up look at big-time newspaper and contemporary Washington-area politics. It captures a man who is ceaselessly loyal to his wife, an invalid, and who looks like a cinch to win a House seat until fate intervenes. It also spotlights a swaggering white-shoe lawyer, a beleaguered editor, a corrupt businessman and a congressional opponent who gets luckier than she ever thought she would. Bob Levey’s Larry Felder, Candidate is a searching snapshot of how difficult it can be to attain a lifelong dream—and to leave others behind. [Read More]

Chris Christie being considered to replace Sessions as attorney general (CBS News)

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is being considered to replace Jeff Sessions as attorney general, two sources familiar with the matter tell CBS News. President Trump forced Sessions out as the nation’s chief law enforcement officer on Wednesday, one day after Democrats captured the House in the midterm elections.

No decisions are expected soon, and the list of those being considered — which also includes Rudy Giuliani, outgoing Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, and former Attorney General William Barr, who served under President George H. W. Bush — is likely to grow in the coming days, CBS News chief White House correspondent Major Garrett reports.

Christie is a longtime friend of President Trump’s and endorsed him after dropping out of the 2016 presidential campaign. [Read More]

California bar shooting suspect identified, used legally purchased gun in attack (Washington Examiner)

The suspect involved in the mass shooting in Thousand Oaks, Calif., Wednesday night was a veteran who legally purchased the weapon he used to carry out the attack, according to Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean.

Dean said Thursday morning that the suspect, 28-year-old Ian Long, used a modified glock handgun to open fire on a crowd of hundreds at Borderline Bar and Grill for “college country night.”

Long was in the Marine Corps from 2008-2013, and served for seven months in Afghanistan, according to records released by the Marine Corps. He was a machine gunner and had reached the rank of corporal when he left the military following a tour in Hawaii. [Read More]

Lateef wins in school board chairman’s race marred by accusations of dirty tricks (Prince William Times)

Babur Lateef is the apparent winner of Tuesday’s special election for chairman of Prince William County School Board, garnering 48 percent of the unofficial vote to Alyson Satterwhite’s 41.9 percent.

The win means Lateef, who ran with the support of Prince William County’s Democratic Committee, will hold onto the top spot on the eight-member board, while Satterwhite, who was endorsed by the local Republican committee, will remain the Gainesville representative on the board, a position she has held since 2012.

Lateef was first appointed interim chairman earlier this year after former school board chairman Ryan Sawyers resigned the post following a tumultuous 14-month tenure. [Read More]
