Father of Bristol’s newborn daughter sues for child support — so Sarah Palin goes bonkers

Published

on

Abstinence activist Bristol Palin was sued for child support as well as joint custody of her newborn daughter by a Kentucky Medal of Honor recipient saying he is the girl’s father, WKYT-TV reported.

Dakota Meyer was engaged to the reality TV star until last May. Shortly afterwards, the younger Palin announced that she was pregnant with her second child, saying that the pregnancy was intentional.

The girl, Sailor Grace Palin, was born on Dec. 23. Meyer shared a picture of her on Instagram, writing, “Best Christmas present ever!! I couldn’t be more proud of this little blessing.”

Besides child support, the lawsuit also demands that Meyer be allowed to list the girl as a dependent on his income tax returns in alternating years. Bristol Palin has earned as much as $262,000 as a public speaker regarding teen pregnancy. Her mother, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R), quickly denounced Meyer’s lawsuit as his attempt to “save face.”

“For many months we have been trying to reach out to Dakota Myers, [sic]” the former vice-presidential nominee said in a statement to Entertainment Tonight. “He has wanted nothing to do with either Bristol’s pregnancy or the baby.”

A spokesperson for Bristol Palin, identified as David Martin, also took a potshot at Meyer, saying, “My values are such that a real American hero doesn’t ask for child support.”

Published

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was attacked by a former Republican colleague who alleged McCarthy and his fellow members of Congress have allowed the House GOP to become the official shill for the White House.

In a profile for the New York Times, former Oversight Committee Chairman Tom Davis (R-VA) shamed the GOP House for the way that a once-respectable institution has fallen.

“Congress no longer operates as an independent branch of government, but as an appendage of the executive branch,” said Davis. “He is made for that role.”

Former senator reveals to Maddow how one brave Democrat can reveal key document in impeachment trial

Published

on

Near the end of Wednesday's impeachment trial, Chief Justice John Roberts announced that an agreement had been made to allow senators to read supplemental testimony from Vice President Mike Pence aide Jennifer Williams.

The document will remain classified, despite claims that there is no classified material in the document, only evidence that is damning to the president.

"In terms of this document potentially being improperly classified, which is something that has been raised in writing by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and raised on the floor of the Senate tonight by Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA)," MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow noted. "Obviously, it was the vice president's office that said it was classified, they are getting publicly criticized for that. If it has been improperly classified and it should be something that the public can see, who adjudicates that?"

Florida Republican Matt Gaetz admits Trump’s legal defense was ‘like an 8th grade book report’ — only worse

Published

on

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) admitted that President Donald Trump's team of lawyers weren't quite the legal eagles that he thinks they might be, said Politico reporter Andrew Desiderio.

Questioned about his take on the way the case is unfolding in the Senate, Gaetz said that the House presented it like it was going to be on "cable news." For many that may be an insult, but it appears to Gaetz that was a compliment.

Desiderio said that Gaetz then lamented that the White House presented their case more like “an 8th-grade book report.”
