"A former head of Boston's largest police union, already charged with sexually assaulting a young girl, was arraigned Tuesday on 16 additional sex offenses related to four new alleged victims, according to prosecutors and court filings," the Boston Globe reported on August 25th. "Patrick M. Rose, 66, was arraigned Tuesday in the West Roxbury division of Boston Municipal Court on 11 counts of rape of a child and five counts of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14, the office of Suffolk District Attorney Rachael Rollins said in a statement."

The Nevada Republican Party Central Committee has voted to censure and disassociate with the state's GOP secretary of state, Barbara Cegavske, over claims that her office failed to do its job and 'put the reliability of our elections in Nevada in question.' Members of the central committee voted to approve the censure on a 126-112 vote on Saturday during the party's spring meeting in Carson City," The Nevada Independent reported Saturday. "The censure also banned Cegavske from party endorsements or resources for 'the intense dishonor her failures brought upon the Nevada Republican Party.'"
