    A former senior writer at progressive watchdog Media Matters for America accused the company of covering up for a “predator” on staff. “After about 10 years, I no longer work at Media Matters,” Tim Johnson wrote on Twitter Monday. He went on to claim there was a “predator” at the company whose alleged misdeeds were covered up for years before they were ousted. Johnson named MMFA editorial director Ben Dimiero as someone who allegedly covered up for the predator, who he did not identify. “Ben: Do you want to talk about how you covered up for a man who preyed on our colleagues?” Johnson wrote, tagging Dimiero. Johnson said the man accused of misconduct suddenly resigned, but was allowed to come into the office afterwards. “Not too long later, I learned the truth of why he ‘resigned,'” Johnson wrote. “He was dismissed because of his sexual misconduct. But only after years of people in authority positions knowing about what he was doing.” Johnson alleged that the man came into the office multiple times after his resignation, and that he ran...

And to my shame, I went out with him after work that day and we all got really drunk. He told me a sob story, I bought it, and the night ended with him being carried up to his apartment.\u201d — Tim Johnson (@Tim Johnson) 1654518577 He continued: This man suddenly resigned.

Not too long later, I learned the truth of why he 'resigned.' He was dismissed because of his sexual misconduct. But only after years of people in authority positions knowing about what he was doing. He apparently was still allowed to come into the office (to participate in a poker game). I ran into him on the street,...
    A Los Angeles County sheriff’s commander who was critical of efforts to cover up an incident in which a deputy kneeled on a handcuffed inmate’s head has filed legal papers accusing Sheriff Alex Villanueva of obstructing justice and retaliating against those who blew the whistle. In the legal claim against L.A. County, which is a required precursor to a lawsuit, Allen Castellano offered new details about Villanueva’s alleged role in keeping the March 2021 incident under wraps that contradict the sheriff’s claim that he learned of the incident several months after it happened. According to the claim, Villanueva, along with a lieutenant working as his aide, Undersheriff Tim Murakami and Assistant Sheriff Robin Limon, viewed a video of the incident just five days after it occurred. After watching, Villanueva allegedly said to the group, “We do not need bad media at this time,” and told Limon that he would “handle the matter,” the claim said. “Villanueva really meant that he would proceed to obstruct justice and direct a cover up of the incident,” the claim alleged. Villanueva did not immediately...
    A damning report published by New York magazine Thursday sheds new light on sexual harassment allegations against Lincoln Project co-founder John Weaver and details how his colleagues were "warned" about his behavior. A college student named Alex Johnson recalled his interactions with Weaver beginning in December 2018, when Johnson expressed an interest in getting into politics.   "I just didn’t really think anything of it at first," Johnson told the magazine's Intelligencer blog. "But then, you know, his intentions became clear." Johnson, who was a senior at the University of Texas at Austin, alleged that Weaver asked about his "dating life and sexual interests" and explicit inquiries were made. In 2020, Weaver reached out to Johnson to see if he was interested in interning for the anti-Trump PAC.  LINCOLN PROJECT RIPS CO-FOUNDER JENNIFER HORN AFTER SHE ANNOUNCES RESIGNATION AMID JOHN WEAVER SCANDAL "Would like to put you in touch with some of our folks," Weaver wrote in April, later adding, "On [your] walk, think about worshipping a big cock and having yours worshipped and you rimmed till you beg!" "We were talking about the Lincoln Project, and maybe getting...
    A woman who was trying to become an NYPD traffic cop alleges a man in the hiring office sexually harassed her — and when she complained, she was rejected for the job on false pretenses, according to a new lawsuit. Denise Johnson, 46, alleges in her Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit that for three months in 2018, Senior Police Administrative Aide Terrance Miller — who worked in the Candidate Assessment Center — came onto her and propositioned her for sex, according to a Miller allegedly first called Johnson admitting that he’d gotten her phone number from her file telling her that he “was going to help her with the application process,” the court documents, filed Sunday, claim. In the coming months, he “made several unwelcome comments that, over time, became increasingly sexual making plaintiff uncomfortable and creating an increasingly hostile environment for plaintiff, a job applicant,” the suit charges. For example, on March 22, 2018 she alleges Miller called to ask about her application and said, “Are you ready to sit on my face?” the court papers say....

    Former Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson was accused of sexual harassment and assault on Thursday in a lawsuit filed by an officer who says she served as his personal driver. The lawsuit accuses Johnson, who was the highest ranking member of the department at the time, of "shockingly violent, abusive, and harassing conduct" that included multiple instances of forced oral and vaginal sex.  Johnson was fired from the department in December of 2019 after allegedly lying to Chicago's mayor about an October 2019 incident in which he was found asleep in his car near his home.  The lawsuit, filed against Johnson and the city of Chicago, alleges that Johnson arranged for the officer, Cynthia Donald, to be assigned to his detail and then as his personal driver in 2016. Get Breaking News Delivered to Your Inbox According to the lawsuit, Johnson first assaulted the plaintiff in the summer of 2016 when he performed nonconsensual oral sex on her at his personal office and ejaculated on her before telling her, "Now you know you belong to me."   "Thereafter, Superintendent...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Two Republican-led Senate committees issued a politically charged report Wednesday alleging that the work Joe Biden’s son did in Ukraine constituted a conflict of interest for the Obama administration at a time when Biden was engaged in Ukraine policy as vice president. But the report also offered no support for President Donald Trump’s claim that the Democratic presidential nominee had improperly pressed for the firing of the country’s top prosecutor to protect his son. The report did not implicate Biden in wrongdoing, focusing instead on his son Hunter, who it said “cashed in” on his father’s position by joining the board of a Ukrainian gas company. The document says that work created conflict-of-interest concerns, including among two Obama administration officials, but acknowledged that it was ultimately “not clear” what impact Hunter Biden’s paid board position had on policy with Ukraine. Biden’s campaign immediately panned the report, released six weeks before the election, as an effort by an ally of Trump’s to damage his election opponent. The campaign said the investigation was founded on “a long-disproven, hardcore rightwing...

    GALLUP, N.M. (AP) — An Army tank crewman from New Mexico who died at Fort Hood, Texas, messaged his fiance that he was concerned about three men who didn't like him and that “something was wrong” shortly before his death, his family said. The Army said Pvt. Corlton L. Chee, 25, collapsed during fitness training at Fort Hood on Aug. 28. He died two days later. Carma Johnson, Chee’s cousin and his family’s spokesperson, said in a phone interview with the Gallup Independent Monday that Chee was being targeted and did not want to go to the fitness training that morning because “he felt that something was going to happen.” It was the last time the family heard from Chee, Johnson said. Authorities informed his family that night that he was in the hospital in critical condition. Johnson said Chee's body was found with bruises, scratches and a bump on the back of his head. The family is alleging that foul play was involved. Fort Hood officials issued a statement on Sept. 8 denying that foul play was a factor...

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — The daughter of a Tennessee corrections administrator who authorities say was killed during a prison escape has sued the facility and its warden for negligence in her death. Shernaye Johnson has filed a lawsuit in federal court seeking a jury trial and $5 million in damages for the death of her mother, Debra Johnson, whose body was found in her home on the grounds of the West Tennessee State Penitentiary in rural Henning in August 2019. The lawsuit, filed on Friday, alleges that the state of Tennessee, prison warden John Fitz and Department of Correction officers failed to make sure Johnson’s home was secure and did not provide adequate staffing that would have prevented her death.

He has not entered a plea. A judge has set an Oct. 26 trial date in Lauderdale County. Prosecutors have said they will seek the death penalty....
