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.
Federal Judge Demands Author Of Provisional Ballot Order
A federal judge has angrily demanded that attorneys for Ohio’s elections chief name the author of an election-eve order that placed the responsibility of explaining what kind of identification voters use on provisional ballots on the voters themselves.
U.S. District Court Judge Algenon Marbley’s voice rose nearly to a shout at times as he asked attorneys what research the Ohio Secretary of State’s office had done before issuing Friday’s after-hours order.
At issue is an order released by Secretary of State Jon Husted that requires voters to check a box explaining what ID they can offer if they weren’t able to provide the last four digits of their Social Security number or their Ohio driver’s license number.
State attorneys said they didn’t immediately know the author.
