Ex-Sheriff Jeff Boyd wants “political comeback” after resignation

ROCK ISLAND- The chairman of the local Democratic party is urging people not to vote for ex-sheriff Jeff Boyd in the upcoming primary, but Boyd says the chairman should butt out.

“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.

He wrote a letter to the editor this week, stating Boyd “betrayed the trust of our community”, and “continues to victimize our community”, and urged Democrats in the primary not to

Cuomo wants revenge porn posters to register as sex offenders

Gov. Cuomo wants to criminalize revenge porn — and force the creeps who post it online to register as sex offenders — under a plan he’ll unveil in his upcoming State of the State Address, The Post has learned.

As part of the proposal, the governor also intends to outlaw “sextortion,” or threatening someone into preforming sex acts.

“The dangerous proliferation of sextortion and revenge crimes disproportionately targets young women and girls and causes harm and embarrassment that can follow victims their entire lives,” Cuomo said.

“This new legislation outlaws this horrific, exploitive practice in New York once and for all and will help provide New Yorkers with peace of mind both on- and offline.”

The move comes after The Post published an exposé on a Web site, Anon-IB, that was promoting revenge porn.

A Cuomo administration official commended The Post for shining a spotlight on this issue.

Cyber-criminals stole $730,000 from New Zealanders within three months this year.

The complexity of online financial crime is escalating and the new Government has been handed the task of thickening New Zealands armour.

‘The Atlantic’: What Putin Really Wants

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Every year at about this time, Russian President Vladimir Putin takes questions in a marathon press conference. Almost all of the questions are softballs. You might expect that. There is a whole lot of applause. But at this year’s press conference, which happened yesterday, ABC News reporter Terry Moran put a question to Putin about Russia’s involvement in the U.S. presidential election. Here’s how Putin answered.

(SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING)

PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN: (Through interpreter) Why do you have this spy hysteria – Russia-meddling hysteria?

MARTIN: Hysteria. So the U.S. is still investigating what Russia did and when they did it. And that is something journalist Julia Ioffe has thought quite a lot about. She’s written a piece for The Atlantic titled “What Putin Really Wants.” And she joins us now. Julia, thanks for being with us.
