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.
Supreme Court Clears Early Voting In Ohio
The Supreme Court is siding with Democrats in refusing to block early voting in Ohio.
The court on Tuesday refused a Republican request to get involved in a dispute over early voting in the state on the three days before Election Day.
Secretary of State Jon Husted directed the state’s 88 county boards of elections to be open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3; from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 4; and from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday, Nov. 5.
The move came within hours of the U.S. Supreme Court rejecting Husted’s appeal of a federal appeals court decision that reinstated in-person early voting on the disputed days.
President Barack Obama’s campaign and Democrats had sued Husted over part of Ohio’s law that cuts off early voting for most residents on the Friday evening before a Tuesday election.
