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.
Bill Proposes Drug Testing Of Ohio Lawmakers
A bill introduced in the state Senate this week would require drug-testing of Ohio’s lawmakers.
The bill would have the same goals as another bill that would require testing of welfare recipients.
Sen. Nina Turner, D-Cleveland, says that if people getting welfare need to be tested for illegal drugs, then members of the state Legislature ought to be, too.
Under the proposal, lawmakers would be screened for exhibiting signs of drug abuse once each year – or more often if selected during four random drawings each year.
Lawmakers who test positive would be removed from any office or chairmanship and not get paid until they test clean. They also would be required to complete a drug and alcohol abuse program.
