The requirements for serving as U.S. President were established over 200 years ago and haven’t changed much since.

The constitutional requirements for the office of U.S. president are few. As stated in Article II Section 1 of the U.S. constitution, they encompass only citizenship, residency, and age:

No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen Years a resident within the United States.

Supreme Court blocks Louisiana abortion law from taking effect – CNNPolitics

Washington (CNN)The Supreme Court Thursday blocked a Louisiana abortion access law from going into effect for now, dealing a victory to opponents of the law who argued it could decimate “safe and legal” abortions in the state.

The order was 5-4 with Chief Justice John Roberts joining the court’s four liberals voting for the stay. New conservative Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote a dissent.
Louisiana’s Unsafe Abortion Protection Act has been blocked since its enactment in 2014, and like a similar Texas law the court previously struck down, requires a doctor to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the facility where the abortion is performed.

Man accused of hiding multiple wives from each other | WPXI

  • EXETER, N.H. – A Maine man is accused of having three wives in separate states, and a New Hampshire woman says he scammed her out of $20,000.

    “He makes you feel special, he makes feel like he actually cares about you and then he marries you, abuses you, drains your assets and leaves,” said Alicia Grant, 35, one of Michael Middleton’s many wives. She says she burned all the pictures she had of the man she married. “Wife number three. Well actually, wife number four, but wife number three was able to get a divorce before me and him got married,” said Grant.

    Grant says she had no idea the man she met online and married back in 2013 had two other wives, one was in Georgia and another in Alabama, until the three wives got wind of each other. Grant filed the initial report.

    Prosecutors started digging and found three valid marriage certificates and say Middleton would scam women into marrying him, take many of their assets and then take off.

    Grant feels betrayed. She says she’s angry and embarrassed. “I was a single mom for five years. You know, maybe I was just really lonely,” Grant told WMTW. “The problem is that I can’t go and get married to someone else because it’s still on record that I’m married.”

    Middleton is scheduled to appear in a New Hampshire courtroom Thursday. It’s unclear if Middleton will show up for his arraignment.

    If convicted, he faces between three and a half and seven years in prison and a $4,000 fine

Federal move could ‘virtually destroy’ online gambling in Pennsylvania, N.J., but help big GOP donor

Online gaming is already a big hit even though it is still in its infancy. Internet gaming has generated a billion dollars in revenue for New Jersey casinos and millions in new income for the state treasuries in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

But an unwelcome guest crashed the internet gaming party last month. The U.S. Department of Justice on Jan. 14 released a legal opinion that reinterprets the federal Wire Act, which prohibits interstate wagering, to apply to any form of gambling that crosses state lines, not just sports betting.

Supreme Court temporarily halts Louisiana abortion law – POLITICO

The Supreme Court put on hold Friday night a Louisiana law that would have shut down any abortion provider in the state that does not have admitting privileges at a hospital less than 30 miles away.

Abortion providers, represented by the Center for Reproductive Rights, had petitioned the court for an emergency stay, saying the law, due to take effect Monday, would leave just one qualified abortion provider to practice in the state. The state contended there was no need for an emergency stay since the law would be implemented over time and not shut down facilities overnight.

‘Got away with one’: Judge dismisses DUI charges for Greensburg woman’s driveway crash | TribLIVE

BY RICH CHOLODOFSKY

A Westmoreland County judge on Thursday dismissed drunken driving charges against a Greensburg woman who was arrested in her own driveway following a collision with a neighbor’s car.

Common Pleas Judge Christopher Feliciani ruled in favor of Mary Britz, 58, who Greensburg police charged after she crashed into a car in June as she attempted to back out of her Painter Avenue driveway. Her vehicle never reached the street.

Defense attorney Patricia Elliott-Rentler argued that DUI charges can only be filed when a motorist operates a vehicle on public roadways.

Woman pinned by headstone sues cemetery in Westmoreland County

A New Jersey woman claims in a lawsuit that she became pinned by a headstone weighing more than 750 pounds while visiting a cemetery in Westmoreland County last fall.

In the lawsuit, Carla Noce says she was decorating a family gravesite at Saint Gertrude Memorial Cemetery and Saint Gertrude Parish in Vandergrift in October 2018 when she stepped back and lightly contacted another headstone that dislodged and struck her, pinning her to the ground by her right foot and leg.

She says the injuries required medical treatment, including surgeries.
