Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
State Senators Unhappy with Supreme Court Ruling
Two state senators who are both seeking their party’s nomination for Ohio attorney general are working together. They promise to pursue a bill to strip Governor Bob Taft of the right to conceal certain policy documents from the public.
Senator Marc Dann, a Youngstown Democrat, and Senator Tim Grendell, a Chester Township Republican, say they’re preparing legislation to undo a recent Ohio Supreme Court ruling, which they said clearly crossed the line into legislative territory.
The court ruled against Dann’s efforts to force Governor Bob Taft to turn over memos the governor had exchanged with his top staff about investments at the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. Dann says the decision would have made “Richard Nixon gleeful.”
