Christina Baker Kline, an author who lives in Montclair, is the latest woman to come forward to say that President George H.W. Bush groped her while they were posting for a photo. Baker Kline, who wrote this year's bestselling novel "A Piece of the World" and the 2013 book "Orphan Train," had been invited to Houston…
Fox News personality Jeanine Pirro appeared confused while attempting to read a graphic on Saturday.
Pirro was complaining about new names being to describe what year in college a student is at Penn State as part of the network's focus on culture war issues.
The school now referring to students by year, with first-year and second-year students being in the lower division, with third-year and fourth-year students being in the upper division.
The host, however, had problems reading the graphic.
"Whatever!" she said.

GOP congressman 'repositioning' his stance on the 'Big Lie' as he runs statewide in New York: report
Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) is "repositioning" his stance on Donald Trump's "Big Lie" about election fraud as he runs statewide for governor of New York in 2022.
During the 2020 presidential election, Joe Biden beat Donald Trump in New York by a landslide, receiving over 60% of the vote.
In the days leading up to the January 6th insurrection, Zeldin inflamed tensions by pushing Trump's conspiracy theories.
"Some insist everything President Trump & his supporters claim about the 2020 election is 'evidence free'. That lie may be easy to rattle off, but it's still a massive, destructive lie that will haunt them on Jan 6th & far into the future," Zeldin posted on Twitter only days before the insurrection.

Following the insurrection, Zeldin took to the floor of the House and sided with the insurrectionists.

Zeldin then voted to overturn the election results.
The GOP congressman toned down his rhetoric, in an interview with Newsday.
"So, you had tens of millions of people that came out and voted for each of the candidates. Their votes were counted. They're counted once, and you ended up with an outcome," Zeldin said.
"And that's how President Trump, uh ... President Biden became the president, was by winning the November 2020 election," he admitted.
Joel Siegel, the managing editor of Spectrum News DC, offered his analysis.
"Rep. Lee Zeldin repositioning himself now that he's running for governor of NY. In interview with Newsday, Zeldin acknowledges Biden won the election — even though Zeldin sought to overturn it," he wrote.

The private evangelical school founded by Jerry Falwell, Sr. has hired a Republican official who officially announced he is leaving his position in the GOP.
"Glenn Clary, chairman of the Alaska Republican Party, formally resigned Friday to take a job at Liberty University in Virginia. Under state party rules, he is automatically replaced by the party's vice chair, Ann Brown of Fairbanks," the Anchorage Daily News reported on Saturday.
"In a message to members of the Republican State Central Committee, Clary wrote that he will become vice president of strategic partnerships and alliances at Liberty. That role will entail lobbying federal and state legislators as part of a network of Christian organizations," the newspaper reported. "Among the priorities for that network, known as the Standing for Freedom Center, is the defeat of federal legislation mandating elections standards and a separate piece of legislation banning discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer Americans."
Clary has also been a pastor at Anchorage Baptist Temple.
