Thousands protest ‘uptight’ Utah laws with underwear run

Published

on

About 3,000 scantily-clad people took to the streets of Salt Lake City Saturday to protest conservative laws in Utah with a “Undie Run” event.

The demonstration began near the Mormon church headquarters and continued about two miles towards the Utah State Capitol.

Organizers were forced to impose a dress code to comply with Utah indecency laws. Nudity, thongs, G-strings, see-through underwear, and skin-tight underwear for men were all prohibited. After protesters stripped down, they were given the chance to donate their clothes to the homeless. Donations of canned food were also accepted.

Participants were encouraged to bring signs and write messages on their bodies to call attention to specific causes. Many had messages in support of marriage equality.

The event also set a goal of registering 3,000 new voters, according to the Utah Undie Run website.

An indictment unsealed in Pittsburgh named Maksim Yakubets and his Evil Corp partner Igor Turashev as the main figures in a group which inserted malware on computers in dozens of countries to steal more than $100 million from companies and local authorities.

The indictment was accompanied by sanctions from the US Treasury on the two men, as well as the announcement of a $5 million reward toward Yakubets' arrest and conviction -- the highest reward ever offered for a cybercriminal.

‘You’re a damn liar’: Joe Biden goes off on Iowa voter for attacking his son’s work in Ukraine

Published

As House Democrats move closer to indicting President Donald Trump on articles of impeachment, many Trump supporters continue to insist that Trump did nothing wrong when, on July 25, he tried to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.

The Bidens’ connection to Ukraine was brought up this week by a man at a Joe Biden campaign event in Iowa — and the former vice president and U.S. senator from Delaware wasted no time calling him out.
