“There is WV Law. There is Federal Law. There is Mingo County Law.”

Mingo County Poltics is a beast of its own. Recently, Judge Mike Thornsbury was sentenced to fifty months in federal prison. Disgraced Judge Thornsbury entered a plea agreement with the United States for violating someone’s constitutional rights. In fact, disgraced Judge Thornsbury conspired with others to violate the constitutional rights of George White.

Former Mingo County Sheriff Eugene Crum was protecting his reputation at the expense of others. Judge Thornsbury admitted in federal court that he and others, including Sheriff Eugene Crum, came up with this great plan to arrest George White and send him to prison for drug distribution. George White was arrested, charged with a felony and sentenced to prison for up to 15 years by disgraced Judge Mike Thornsbury. Disgraced ex-prosecutor C. Michael Sparks was implicated in the scheme by Judge Mike Thornsbury. Now, C. Michael Sparks is awaiting his fate on Monday, June 16, 2014, at the United States Court House in Charleston, West Virginia. Judge Thomas Johnson will sentence C. Michael Sparks for his role in the criminal conspiracy in the Southern District of West Virginia at Charleston, West Virginia.

From framing scorned love interests to framing political rivals, Mingo County has a long history for corruption. George White stated in court at Judge Mike Thornsbury’s sentencing, “There is WV Law, there is Federal Law, and there is Mingo County Law. I am much more afraid of Mingo County Law.”

Judge Thornsbury was given 50 months in federal prison, instead of 60 months, for his substantial assistance to the government. Thornsbury is never one to engage in anything save for self-serving and one-dimensional behavior. In the world of Mike Thornsbury, only one person matters: Judge Michael Thornsbury. Meanwhile, disgraced prosecutor C. Michael Sparks has been spreading the word, “Judge Thornsbury is throwing me under the bus.” Michael Sparks has stated he is a victim of Thornsbury’s sinister scheme.

Tim Russert Office Exhibit Closing at Newseum

CBS DC

WASHINGTON — It’s the last weekend to see the office of longtime “Meet the Press” moderator Tim Russert at the Newseum.

Russert’s office went on display at the museum in Washington in late 2009 and will be on view through Father’s Day. The office looks much as it did June 13, 2008, the day Russert died of a heart attack at age 58 while recording voiceovers for his next show at NBC’s Washington bureau.

Russert, who served on the Newseum’s board of directors, was bureau chief for NBC News in Washington. He began hosting “Meet the Press” in 1991.

The “Inside Tim Russert’s Office” will be relocated to Russert’s hometown of Buffalo where it is expected go on view in the fall at the Buffalo History Museum.

Yo Facebook, Ban Links With Fake Video Play Buttons

TechCrunch

Oh, cute cat video? Let me watch that for a second in the News Feed. Click the play button. NOPE. It was a lie. Just a static image of a play button designed to dupe me into clicking out to some crappy website. Feed reading, interrupted. User experience, injured. Likelihood I’ll click legitimate videos in the future, diminished. Facebook. Seriously. This BS needs to stop.

I get it. Sites are trying to convey they have video content to share, so they stick a fake play button on the link preview thumbnail image. But what they really want is my ad views, and they’re willing to trick me to get them.

CAT COMMERCIAL That play button is fake. ARRRGGGHH!

They could have put “Watch:” or “[Video]” in their link’s headline, but then I’d get to make the choice if I wanted to click away from Facebook to watch. Instead, they just make Facebook…
