A Catholic school student who was simply hoping to see a picture of her catechism teacher in a Santa Claus costume, but she ended up seeing a picture of a nude man instead, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Daryle Rodriguez, 71, was arrested after allegedly showing the fourth grader the picture. He is an instructor at St. John Bosco Catholic Church’s parish school, but was fired after his arrest, an Archdiocese of New Orleans spokeswoman told the paper. He was booked on charges of indecent behavior with a juvenile and was given a $15,000 bond.

Rodriguez was apparently trying to show the child a picture of himself on his cell phone but the first picture that came up was a fully nude frontal shot of a man. The girl went home and told her mother.

He told authorities he uses his phone to search for pornographic images, but didn’t know the picture had saved to his phone. He tried to cover it and later deleted it.

“Though the action did not involve physical contact, it was inappropriate and required police investigation,” the archdiocese wrote in a letter to parents about the incident. “As soon as allegations of inappropriate behavior came to light, we quickly turned the information over to the police, and they in turn moved quickly with an investigation and arrest. We will continue to work with them through this process.”

According to a report from the New York Times, longtime government employees who landed their jobs because of their Republican bonafides are now coming to work each day with the threat of dismissal hanging over their heads if it is believed they are are not totally on board with Donald Trump policies.

Following a report that Johnny McEntee, a 29-year-old loyalist just installed to take over the Office of Presidential Personnel, is instructing "departments to search for people not devoted to the president so they can be removed," the Times notes that just because a staffer is a Republican in good standing doesn't mean that won't be booted.

Here is why these Nevadans are betting on Sanders

Published

LAS VEGAS — Any doubts that Nevadans wouldn't show up for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) were quickly squashed by the amount of people lined up to get into his Friday night rally in Las Vegas on the eve of the Nevada caucus: an estimated 2,020, according to his campaign. One would have been forgiven for assuming the crowd spilling out the main entrance and down the street had lined up to get into one of the city's hottest shows, not a "Get Out the Vote" event. Despite stereotypes that Sanders only draws support from the young (and mostly white), the crowd was visibly diverse in age, ethnicity and race. And anyone who didn't arrive already wearing the requisite Bernie gear had plenty of opportunities to buy some as they waited to enter the venue.

Roger Stone’s dream of booting judge for sentencing comments brutally crushed by ex-US Attorney: ‘He’s met his match’

Published

Appearing on MSNBC on Saturday afternoon, former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance crushed any hopes former Donald Trump associate Roger Stone might have that his prison sentence will be voided due to comments made by the presiding judge in his federal trial.

Speaking with host Alex Witt, Vance left no doubt Stone's latest legal gambit will collapse just like his previous attempts to squirm out of his trial did.

"Stone's legal team says that Judge Amy Berman Jackson's assertion that the jurors served with integrity shows bias," host Witt stated. "Do you buy that argument and legally would that be enough to get the judge dismissed from the case?"
