6 "I made charitable donations to the Foundation in support of the work they're doing on global AIDS prevention and deforestation, causes I care about deeply," he said. "I thought that my contributions were a matter of public record. However, in hindsight, I should have taken the extra step of personally disclosing my donations to my employer and to the viewers on air during the recent news stories about the Foundation. I apologize."

16 In both 2013 and 2014, Stephanopoulos made a $25,000 donation to the 501 nonprofit founded by former president Bill Clinton, the Foundation's records show. Stephanopoulos never disclosed this information to viewers, even when interviewing author Peter Schweizer last month about his book "Clinton Cash," which alleges that donations to the Foundation may have influenced some of Hillary Clinton's actions as Secretary of State.

40 Guess the party ...

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Graphic details were revealed in a San Francisco courtroom when a former political consultant to the mayor faced child pornography charges.

Enrique Pearce faces six felony counts, including possession and distribution of child pornography.

Prosecutors say Pearce was in possession of nearly 5,000 images of child pornography, including video. Some photos depicted children and infants being sexually assaulted. In some, the children are tied up.

The district attorney argues Pearce is a threat to public safety, because in addition to the pornography, investigators say they found more than 100 images on his cell phone showing boys ages 7 to 12, who do not appear to know they're being photographed.

One boy was on a man's shoulders at a Giants' celebration at City Hall. The district attorney is also concerned that police say Pearce has told another man he'd like to share a boy with a man.

The judge raised Pearce's bail from $250,000 to $400,000.

Seriously Stephie (can I call you Stephie?) you should know that even if your donation was disclosed elsewhere if you have a COI you need to report it.

58 A week ago, voters in Michigan rejected a massive tax increase earmarked for road improvements, despite the politicians insistence that the tax increase was the only way to fund desperately needed infrastructure improvements.

http://tinyurl.com/mge27wh

After the referendum failed, all of a sudden, the legislature found a way to fund a billion dollars in road improvements by reallocating money from other programs.
