Bill Cosby Sentenced

Bill Cosby was sentenced today to three-to-10 years in prison for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004.

It is unclear if he will be eligible for parole after serving his minimum sentence.

Voter Fraud Found in Key States

In a bombshell report by the New York Times, it was revealed that Hillary Clinton’s campaign lawyer Marc Elias hired a company in both Arizona and Colorado called Priorities PAC in order to hire people with the intention of having them commit voter fraud.

In order for someone to be able to vote, they must meet three requirements: (1) be at least 18 years old, (2) register no later than 29 days before an election, and (3) live at the address you are voting from for at least 10 days before an election. Elias told the Times that he never discussed this with Clinton and did not know about it until after it happened but many experts believe he’s being untruthful.
