Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) on Wednesday called on his colleagues to move a bill that would strengthen the government’s ability to sanction North Korea for hacking.
“North Korea’s repeated acts of aggression and hostility call for stronger sanctions,” Bennet said in a statement.
The bill, known as the North Korea Sanctions Act, would also empower the government to sanction property and seize funds from the organizations and individuals supporting Kim Jong Un’s regime.
California Attorney General Kamala Harris must be so ambitious that she is willing to tempt fate of multiple civil lawsuits and even criminal charges so she can intimidate her ideological opponents — and even her supporters. Ms. Harris oversees licensing of charities across the country that ask Californians for contributions. She’s also a candidate for the United States Senate.
In disregard of the 1958 landmark civil rights decision NAACP v. Alabama and post-Watergate reforms to the Internal Revenue Code to protect tax information privacy, Ms. Harris is now telling charities and other nonprofit organizations that in order to get from her a charitable solicitation license they must first provide her office a confidential federal tax schedule listing their most valuable donors.
LexisNexis and a police reports website obtained North Carolina Motor Vehicle Department records and illegally used them for marketing purposes, a class action lawsuit claims.
Deloris and Leonard Gaston are licensed drivers living in Charlotte, N.C., who say they were involved in car accidents in Mecklenburg County.
The Gastons sued LexisNexis Risk Solutions Inc. and PoliceReports.US LLC earlier this month in North Carolina Federal Court. The class action complaint was filed on behalf of a proposed class of people whose motor vehicle records were obtained by LexisNexis and PoliceReports without their consent.
