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.
Removal Of Ohio Election Officials Recommended
A state hearing officer recommends two Democrats be removed from an elections board in southwest Ohio after they moved to create extra voting hours on the weekends.
Secretary of State Jon Husted initially suspended Thomas Ritchie Sr. and Dennis Lieberman from their positions on the Montgomery County Board of Elections, then temporarily lifted his suspension last week so the Dayton-area board could continue its work.
Husted, a Republican, has ordered election boards in Ohio’s 88 counties to have the same early in-person voting hours on weekdays and have no hours on weekends.
A hearing officer on Monday recommended to Husted that Ritchie and Lieberman be removed for failing to act consistently with his order.
Husted’s office said a decision on their removal will be made Tuesday.
