Pennsylvania lawmaker pleads guilty to driving drunk at McDonald’s drive-thru

A Pennsylvania state representative is on a month of house arrest after pleading guilty to driving drunk at a McDonald’s drive-thru in Harrisburg earlier this year.

Dauphin County court records indicate Democratic Rep. John Galloway of Levittown pleaded guilty last week in what was his second drunken-driving arrest since 2011.

Galloway is apologizing and says he’s working to put the arrest behind him.

His previous arrest was resolved by participation in a diversion program designed for first-time, nonviolent offenders, so the May violation counts as his second offense.

The 59-year-old Galloway underwent a month-long inpatient treatment program in July and August, after the state budget was finished.

He doesn’t expect to miss fall voting sessions in the House.

MIT professor defended Jeffrey Epstein associate in leaked emails, claimed victims were ‘entirely willing’

Famed Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) computer scientist Richard Stallman is under fire after a leaked email thread showed him defending an associate of the late convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, claiming that his alleged victims were “entirely willing.”

In the email thread, leaked by MIT alum Salam Jie Gano to VICE on Friday, Stallman argued that the late Marvin Minsky – an AI pioneer who died in 2016 and is accused of assaulting one of Epstein’s victims, Virginia Giuffre, – had not actually assaulted anyone.

“The word ‘assaulting’ presumes that he applied force or violence, in some unspecified way, but the article itself says no such thing. Only that they had sex,” he wrote, referring to an article about Giuffre’s testimony against Minsky. “The most plausible scenario is that she presented herself to him an entirely willing.”

RONAN FARROW CLAIMS MIT CONCEALED JEFFREY EPSTEIN DONATIONS FOLLOWING SEX OFFENDER CONVICTION

According to the timestamp on the emails, the exchange occurred on Thursday.

Gano, who first wrote about the email thread on Medium before leaking it to VICE on Friday, said Stallman was responding to a female student’s email about an MIT protest regarding Epstein’s donations to the university.

In the thread, Stallman then argues the definition of “sexual assault,” “rape” and whether they apply to Minsky and Giuffre’s deposition statement.

MIT MEDIA LAB DIRECTOR RESIGNS AFTER REPORT ON FINANCIAL TIES TO JEFFREY EPSTEIN

When a student pointed out that Giuffre was 17 when she was allegedly forced to have sex with Minsky in Epstein’s home in the Virgin Islands, Stallman said “it is morally absurd to define ‘rape’ in a way that depends on minor details such as which country it was in or whether the victim was 18 years old or 17.”

The leak comes as MIT is reeling from mounting criticisms after revelations that its highly acclaimed Media Lab accepted donations from Epstein for many years despite knowing his sex offender conviction – and consciously made efforts to conceal his name from the records.

Ronan Farrow alleged in an expose published in the New Yorker earlier this month that the MIT Media Lab accepted donations from Epstein – and other wealthy donors which whom he served as an intermediary – despite being considered a “disqualified donor.”

The Media Lab’s director, Joichi Ito, resigned after the expose was published.

“After giving the matter a great deal of thought over the past several days and weeks, I think that it is best that I resign as Director of the Media Lab and as a Professor and employee of the Institute, effective immediately,” Ito said in an email to the provost and president of the university that he shared with The New York Times.

‘Friends’ creators confirm there won’t be a reunion series

More bad news for “Friends” fans.

After the beloved comedy series announced it’s leaving Netflix in July for WarnerMedia’s new streaming service, the show’s creators confirmed there won’t be a reunion or reboot series happening anytime soon.

“We will not be doing a reunion show, we will not be doing a reboot,” co-creator and executive producer Marta Kauffman said during the Tribeca TV Festival, according to Deadline.

‘FRIENDS’ ALUM JENNIFER ANISTON EXPLAINS WHY SHE’S CHANGED HER MIND ABOUT POTENTIAL REUNION

“The show was about that time in life when friends are your family,” she added.

She reasoned that a continuation of the series is “not going to beat what we did.”

Co-creator and executive producer David Crane agreed.

“We did the show we wanted to do. We got it right, and we put a bow on it,” he added.

During the panel, the exec also revealed a few behind-the-scenes details about the show, like how they never thought of Monica and Chandler getting together until the audience reacted to them onscreen together.

“We never intended Monica and Chandler,” Kauffman explained. “But the audience reaction was so strong, and their chemistry was so good that we ultimately had to listen to the show. We knew there’s a real relationship here.”

California winery apologizes after denying wedding venue to same-sex couple, announces policy change

The owners of one California winery have apologized after reps for the private estate rejected a same-sex couple’s request to hold their upcoming wedding at venue. After public outcry, the management announced a policy change in that all couples are now welcome to rent out their winery and wedding venue, regardless of gender or sexual orientation.

Ahead of their nuptials, Dezanea Reyes and Alexandria Biddle recently contacted Viaggio Estate and Winery seeking information on the Acampo venue, HuffPost reports. On Sept. 5, the couple was shocked to receive an email from a wedding coordinator explaining why the women were welcome to hold their reception – but not the actual ceremony – there.

According to the outlet, the Viaggio staffer told the women that the winery’s owners, Larry and Teri Lawrence, held “very strong personal religious beliefs” on marriage as a union between heterosexual couples only and that they had never held a same-sex wedding there.

BRIDE-TO-BE ATTACKS WEDDING PLANNER OVER FAILED TRIP TO DENNY’S

“[The owners] understand that California statutory law prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation, and they don’t like to think they would ever discriminate on that basis even if a law allowed them to do so. However, the owner also has a very strong personal religious belief regarding marriage, which is for marriage to be between heterosexual couples only,” the wedding coordinator told Reyes and Biddle, as per the Los Angeles Times. “They believe that the U.S. Constitution and the California Constitution protect these religious beliefs and their right to express them.”

Stunned, the women shared the news to a local LGBTQ community Facebook group, the San Francisco Chronicle reports, so that others could “be aware” of the business’ policies.

“I understand and am not opposed to people having their own personal religious beliefs [but] I just fell shunned by people who do not know me,” Reyes wrote online. “I will still have a beautiful wedding when my time comes. I just want others to be aware of this venue … so our LGBTQ community knows about this venue so when they do start looking [for wedding venues], they can be aware.”

Her post caught the eye of LGBTQ activist and local comedian Nikki Levy, who reached out to Viaggio herself, seeking more information, the Times reports.

The woman received a similar response from the venue’s wedding and events director, detailing that while the business was welcome, it was “the actual ceremony that would be violating [the owner’s] personal religious beliefs,” according to screenshots shared to Facebook.

“I couldn’t believe that this would happen in California, and I couldn’t believe that someone would be so openly homophobic,” Levy told KRCA.

Frustrated, she called out the establishment on Facebook on Sept. 10, charging others to speak out against the winery in a post that has since been shared over 220 times.

Soon after, owner Teri Lawrence released a statement apologizing for causing “anyone pain” and announcing a policy change on the matter for the business.

“Viaggio Winery welcomes all couples, regardless of gender of sexual orientation, to our winery and wedding venue, including all wedding ceremonies. It is our hope that all will feel welcomed and respected at our winery, which has been our home since 2012,” she said in a release, according to the Times.

“In recent communication with potential visitors, I tried to explore options for celebrations that would accommodate both my religious beliefs and the expectations of our community. I realize now that contrary to my intent, this was hurtful to the people involved,” she continued.

“Our policy has been changed, effective immediately. All couples are welcome to hire out facilities for weddings and the celebrations that go with them,” Lawrence concluded. “I am sincerely sorry to have caused anyone pain at a time that should be joyous.”

Though Reyes and Biddle now intend to celebrate their wedding day elsewhere, they are glad the Lawrence has realized the error of their ways, according to HuffPost.

“At the end of the day, love is love,” Reyes told KRCA. “I’m hoping for the best for [Viaggio] and in a way I hope this opens their eyes that they should be open to other people.”

Reps for the winery were not immediately available to offer further comment on the story.

Lt. Gen. Boykin: Death of Bin Laden’s son ‘psychological setback,’ not ‘lethal blow’ to Al Qaeda

Westlake Legal Group Jerry-Boykin-Hamza-Bin-Laden-FOX Lt. Gen. Boykin: Death of Bin Laden's son 'psychological setback,' not 'lethal blow' to Al Qaeda Sam Dorman fox-news/world/terrorism/al-qaeda fox-news/world/terrorism fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article 62bce6de-d983-5c22-9778-87391337ecf1

Retired Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin said on Saturday that the death of Hamza Bin Laden, the son of terrorist leader Usama Bin Laden, was a “psychological” set back for Al Qaeda.

“I think that it’s more of a psychological setback than an operational setback for Al Qaeda — and it’s also a psychological victory for the United States,” he said on “Your World.

Boykin noted that Bin Laden’s son was not the leader of Al Qaeda but rather acted as a “go-between” for Al Qaeda and other terror groups. “This probably happened over a year ago so it’s not a lethal blow,” he added.

More from Media

In a statement released by the White House on Saturday morning, three days after the 18th anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks, President Trump confirmed Hamza, a high-ranking Al Qaeda member, “was killed in a United States counterterrorism operation in the Afghanistan/Pakistan region.”

BIN LADEN’S SON HAMZA WAS KILLED IN COUNTERTERRORISM OPERATION, PRESIDENT TRUMP CONFIRMS

“The loss of Hamza bin Laden not only deprives Al Qaeda of important leadership skills and the symbolic connection to his father but undermines important operational activities of the group,” the statement continued. “Hamza bin Laden was responsible for planning and dealing with various terrorist groups.”

It was unclear when the operation took place. The White House statement gave no further details.

Reports of Hamza’s death first surfaced in July. President Trump and U.S. officials had refused to comment on the death until Saturday’s statement.

News of Hamza Bin Laden’s death comes at a time of transition for U.S. foreign policy as former National Security Adviser John Bolton left the administration on Tuesday.

Boykin wasn’t surprised by Bolton’s departure and told Fox News host Neil Cavuto that Bolton had “some good ideas.”

“But I knew when he went into that job that he was not going to stay because he has an irascible personality and that bumped up the same personality in Donald Trump,” he said.

Terry Bradshaw says he ‘can’t stand’ players like Antonio Brown

Fox sports analyst and former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw announced his disdain for players like Antonio Brown during an interview with the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review following the wide receiver’s tumultuous offseason. Brown may have broken most of the Steelers’ wide-receiver records during his nearly decade-long run with the team, but Bradshaw says he would never have thrown to him.

“I’m not pulling for him, I can promise you that,” Bradshaw said of Brown via CBS Sports. “I cannot emphasize how I cannot stand and have a disdain totally for players like that. I don’t want any part of them. I wouldn’t like them. They would hate me if they were on our team. They would hate me because I wouldn’t throw to him”

“I will not put up with that kind of behavior. You don’t win with it. Why haven’t [the Steelers] won more Super Bowls? There is talent, [but] it’s just guys like him. Let him go and his brand and whatever it is he’s doing,” he added.

Brown, 31, was traded from the Steelers to Raiders in the offseason before eventually being released by the team in a move he reportedly helped orchestrate. Brown was signed by the New England Patriots hours later and is now in the midst of sexual assault allegations, which contributed to a lost sponsorship deal with helmet manufacturer Xenith.

Despite the civil lawsuit against him, Brown hasn’t been placed on the commissioner’s exempt list, which means he’s still eligible to play in the upcoming Patriots-Dolphins matchup. Patriots head coach Bill Belichick hasn’t said whether the wide reciever will take to the field however, telling reporters in a press conference on Friday, “I’m not going to hand out a copy of the game plan here.”

ANTONIO BROWN LIKELY TO PLAY FOR NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS IN WEEK 2: REPORT

Bradshaw, 71, won four Super Bowls for the Steelers during a six-year period in the ’70s and was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1989. He played alongside wide receivers Lynn Swann and John Stallworth, who were both inducted into the Canton, Ohio, hall of fame.

The former quarterback knows what’s important to fans and players: winning.

“Winning football games is all about the team and all about players caring about one another and everybody pulling together, not pulling apart,” Bradshaw said. “You can’t have Antonio Brown for all the greatness that they are, do you want the baggage that goes with that crap? I wouldn’t.”

“I wish the heck they would have gotten rid of him a long time ago,” he added.

Felicity Huffman asks to spend 14-day sentence in cushy prison close to her LA home

Felicity Huffman was sentenced to two weeks in prison on Friday after pleading guilty for her role in the college admissions scandal and now her lawyers are working on where she will serve time.

Martin Murphy, one of the lawyers who reps Huffman, asked Judge Indira Talwani to recommend the Emmy-winner serve at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California, which is 30 miles from Oakland.

“It’s the closest to Ms. Huffman’s residence [in Los Angeles],” he said in court on Friday.

FELICITY HUFFMAN CRIED WHILE PLEADING GUILTY

FCI Dublin is exclusively a women’s minimum-security prison and houses 1,235 inmates.

If Huffman were to be sentenced there, the 56-year-old would have to wear a khaki uniform and make her bed by 6:30 a.m, according to the inmate handbook.

The handbook also details about “visitors may bring a maximum of $35.00 per adult” but the cash can only be used for the vending machine in the visitors’ room and not given to the inmate.

Forbes magazine called FCI Dublin one of the “10 cushiest prisons” in America because of it’s location and weather.

Former New Mexico priest, 81, sentenced to 30 years for sex abuse of altar boy

A former Roman Catholic priest who fled the country decades ago was sentenced Friday in New Mexico to 30 years in prison after a jury found him guilty of sexually abusing an altar boy at a veterans‘ cemetery and military base.

In ordering the sentence, U.S. District Judge Martha Vazquez said it was the worst case of child sex abuse she has handled over the course of 26 years.

At one point, the judge demanded that 81-year-old defendant Arthur Perrault look a woman in the eyes as she testified about being abused by him.

The judge also condemned Perrault for only being concerned about his sexual needs.

“You chose as a profession the life of being a priest. It was supposed to be your job to help, not destroy,” she said.

Prosecutors had asked the judge for special consideration of a life sentence for Perrault, once a pastor at an Albuquerque parish and a chaplain at Kirtland Air Force Base.

He was convicted in April of six counts of aggravated sexual abuse and one count of abusive sexual contact with a minor under 12.

“It is a long sentence but certainly a fitting one given the length of his conduct and devastating impact,” U.S. Attorney John Anderson said.

Perrault pleaded not guilty after he was returned to the U.S. from Morocco in 2017 and maintained his innocence at the sentencing. His defense team plans to file an appeal.

The abuse counts stemmed from the treatment of one boy at Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque and at Santa Fe National Cemetery. The two sites are within federal jurisdiction, which allowed U.S. authorities to file charges with no statute of limitations.

Several people who were not involved in the specific charges were allowed Friday to recount abuse by Perrault and describe their emotional and mental anguish.

Elaine Montoya said her first kiss came from Perrault at the start of a two-year sexual relationship.

“He had convinced me that it was normal … a gift from God,” she told the court.

ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY EXPRESSES ‘PROFOUND SHAME’ FOR BRITISH MASSACRE IN INDIA

Charles Starzynski said his first sexual experience was with Perrault instead of any of the girls he liked. He called the former priest a con man concerned only with his image of sophistication.

“You’re just a jerk,” he said.

In his only comments, Perrault said he had not made initial eye contact with the people who testified because he is hard of hearing and was watching a computer to read transcriptions of what was being said.

He declined several opportunities to make other remarks.

Authorities say their decades-long pursuit of Perrault led them to Morocco — a country that does not have an extradition treaty with the United States — and showed how far they were willing to go to seek justice.

Perrault was in jail at the time and Moroccan officials decided to honor an arrest warrant presented by U.S. authorities.

Perrault is among more than 70 clergy members identified by the Santa Fe Archdiocese as credibly accused of abusing children in New Mexico.

The archdiocese is in bankruptcy proceedings as a result of the abuse scandal.

Perrault first arrived in New Mexico in the 1960s after church officials in Connecticut sent him to a center that treated priests accused of abuse. Located in the Jemez Mountains north of Albuquerque, the facility was operated by the Servants of the Paraclete religious order.

Prosecutors wrote in a recent court filing that they had tried Perrault on a “small fraction” of his crimes, saying he had many more victims. At trial, several men testified that he abused them as children in his car, a church rectory and other locations.

The victim at the center of the prosecutors’ case said Perrault took him on excursions to amusement parks and to the military base in Albuquerque and had touched him inappropriately as many as 100 times starting when he was 10.

The abuse ended in 1992, the year Perrault left the state. An attorney had been preparing two lawsuits at the time against the Archdiocese of Santa Fe alleging Perrault had sexually assaulted seven children.

Tom Hanks has worked with and met some of the biggest names in Hollywood over his decades-long acting career.

But apparently there are still people he fangirls over.

At the Toronto Film Festival, the 63-year-old Oscar winner met Jennifer Lopez and the rest of the cast of “Hustlers” and couldn’t help but be ecstatic by the moment.

While at the Variety Studio, Hanks waved at Lopez, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, Constance Wu and director Lorene Scafaria, then rushed over to take a photo with them.

“Listen, I don’t have on any lip gloss. Am I allowed to stand over there?” he asked.

He greeted each woman with a kiss on the cheek before posing with them.

“The only thing I’ve heard about your movie is that it could use a little Tom Hanks,” he joked.
