From the Washington Times
Sen. Ted Cruz called for a “serious criminal investigation” into multiple visits to the White House by Democratic consultant Robert Creamer after undercover videos showed he was involved in hiring protesters to disrupt Donald Trump events.
“Voter fraud operative: 45 meetings w/ Obama—this merits a serious criminal investigation (not a James Comey ‘friends and family’ cover-up),” the Texas Republican tweeted Wednesday, referring to Mr. Comey, FBI director.
Political PR Man Rich Miller doesn’t see much in Robert Creamer’s Videos, where everyone else saw Creamer and his organization promoting political violence.

===has been implicated in staging protests intended to disrupt Republican events and Trump rallies===
I watched that video. They claim he wants to incite violence. Didn’t see anything in that to support the claim. And Creamer was behind the Chicago demonstration? Yeah. OK. He probably played a role, but c’mon.

Democratic operative whose organization was helping Hillary Clinton’s campaign announced Tuesday that he would be “stepping back” from the campaign after an edited video suggested that he and other staffers hired people to attend Donald Trump’s campaign rallies and incite violence.
Robert Creamer — husband of Illinois Rep. Jan Schakowsky — announced his resignation in a statement after conservative activist James O’Keefe released a video under his organization Project Veritas Action, which showed Creamer and other operatives purportedly discussing methods for inciting violence at rallies for the Republican nominee.
It looks like big banks and corporations agreed to donate to the Democrats a certain percentage of the allocated TARP funds.
(or at least the Clinton’s were tracking it)

Dan Kelley represented Dr. Jeffrey Leef, our Congressional candidate in the 7th District, before the Chicago Board of Elections against an Objection brought by one of the disqualified Ward Committeemen. To win, the Objector had to be in fact a Republican Ward Committeeman, which put the entire disqualification issue before the Board. Dan did a good job, but as you can imagine no Republican attorney was going to win that …

Some Chicago State University students are facing a frigid problem. No hot water in their dorm rooms.
They haven’t had any hot water at all for two weeks, CBS 2’s Dana Kozlov reports in this Original Report.
This is the latest problem to pop up at the embattled university, which underwent lay-offs and a forced early graduation just last spring due to state funding issues.
And many students aren’t happy about it.
Declining enrollment at CSU
Chicago State enrollment:
2015: 4,818 (Spring)
2015: 4,767 (Fall)
