“I don’t need an endorsement. I don’t want an endorsement from anyone but the people,” said Boyd in an interview with WQAD-TV this week.

“I think he weighs in on things he shouldn’t weigh in on. He seems like he’s intoxicated with himself. Doug House seems to have a pattern of getting outside of his lane and getting involved in things he shouldn’t get involved in”,  Boyd said while knocking on doors of potential Democratic voters.

But, Chairman Doug House says the public needs to be reminded about Boyd’s record and resignation.

Cyber criminal Goncalo Esteves sentenced after helping hackers test their products

A CYBER criminal who ran a product-testing service for hackers has been sentenced to two years in prison.
