  • An ex-Magic Kingdom worker from Clermont has been arrested, accused of trying to set up a sexual encounter with an 8 year old girl.  According to the United States Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Florida, Frederick M. Pohl Jr.  sent inappropriate pictures of himself to what he believed was the 8 year old girl and talked online with her and her father in order to arrange a meeting. When he arrived at an Orlando hotel that they were supposed to meet at, Pohl was arrested by an undercover federal agent who was the one posing as the girl he was talking to.  According to the submitted criminal complaint, Pohl was in possession of condoms and a child sized pink dress. While the Middle District did confirm that he was an employee at the Magic Kingdom, they did not say what his role was.

  • She stammers and stumbles, slowing down her speech almost like she can’t quite grasp the words - surely Speaker Pelosi is drunk. But the now-popular video has been proven to be heavily doctored. That fact hasn’t stopped the video from spreading across the internet like wildfire, though. The three-minute footage has 2.1 million views on Facebook and has been shared 45,000 times. The edited video was originally posted by a group called Politics WatchDog and shows Pelosi's Wednesday remarks at the Center for American Progress Ideas Conference slowed down to about 75% of its original speed. The pitch has also been altered after it was slowed down to make it sound more like Pelosi's actual voice. Mobile users see Facebook post here. Hany Farid, a computer-science professor and digital-forensics expert at University of California, Berkeley, told the Post that there was 'no question' the video had been altered and that 'it's striking that such a simple manipulation can be so effective and believable to some.' President Trump posted an edited video late Thursday of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with the caption, 'PELOSI STAMMERS THROUGH NEWS CONFERENCE.' Mobile users see video here.
  • British Prime Minister Theresa May announced her resignation Friday morning, effective June 7. >> Read more trending news Update 6:15 a.m. EDT May 24: Most observers believe a new leader could replace Theresa May as Britain’s prime minister by the end of July, The New York Times reported. Former foreign secretary Boris Johnson appears to be the favorite. Other possibilities include former Brexit secretary Dominic Raab and Andrea Leadsom, who resigned from May’s cabinet this week, The Washington Post reported. Jeremy Hunt, the foreign secretary, and Sajid Javid, the home secretary, have also been mentioned as candidate, the Times reported. Update 5:55 a.m. EDT May 24: Theresa May became prime minister of Britain after a June 2016 referendum, when the country voted to leave the European Union, The Washington Post reported. May tried three times to get Parliament to pass the Brexit withdrawal but the House of Commons rejected it each time, the newspaper reported.  That led to her resignation Friday. 'I will shortly leave the job that it has been the honor of my life to hold,” May said outside 10 Downing Street. “The second female prime minister, but certainly not the last.'I do so with no ill will, but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country I love.' Boris Johnson, who once said his chances of becoming prime minister were “about as good as the chances of finding Elvis on Mars,” is now the favorite to become Britain’s 77th prime minister, according to the Post. Update 5:35 a.m. EDT May 24:  Prime Minister Theresa May’s voice shook with emotion as she announced her resignation Friday morning, saying she had “done my best” to try to get Britain out of the European Union, the BBC reported. May said she would step down as leader of the Conservative party on June 7, but will remain prime minister until a successor is chosen, The New York Times reported. “I believe I was right to persevere, even when the odds against success seemed high,” May said. “But it is now clear to me that it is in the best interests of the country for a new prime minister to lead that effort.” May will still be in office when President Donald Trump arrives in Britain on June 3 for a state visit, which will coincide with events marking the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings during World War II. May had been under pressure to resign after a backlash by her own party against her latest Brexit plan, the BBC reported.

Washington Insider

  • Victims of Hurricanes, floods, wildfires, and other natural disasters will have to wait into next month for Congress to give final approval to a $19.1 billion relief bill, as final passage of the plan in the House was blocked on Friday by a lone Republican lawmaker, forcing a delay until Congress returns for legislative business in the first week of June.   “I respectfully object,” said Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX), a more conservative Republicans who stayed in town after the House had completed its legislative business on Thursday, and came to the floor Friday morning to object to acting on the plan without a full roll call vote.   The House had approved $19.1 billion in disaster aid in early May; the Senate on Thursday amended the plan with the backing of President Trump – but it wasn’t good enough to get unanimous consent for approval in the House. “If I do not object, Congress will have passed into law a bill that spends $19 billion of taxpayer money without members of Congress being present here in our nation’s capital,” Roy said on the House floor, forcing a further delay on the disaster aid measure. One of Roy’s objections was that no money was included in the plan for the immigrant surge along the southern border - President Trump had backed off of that in order to secure a deal on Thursday. Roy’s maneuver drew the scorn of fellow Republicans from states which are need of aid - like Georgia - where farmers suffered devastating losses from Hurricane Michael. Rep. Jody Hice (R-GA) tweeted that “our farmers need aid today,” as this move by his GOP colleague will delay that process into June, leaving a bad taste in the mouths of fellow Republicans with farmers in need of assistance.   Democrats were furious. “House Republicans’ last-minute sabotage of an overwhelmingly bipartisan disaster relief bill is an act of staggering political cynicism,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  “Countless American families hit by devastating natural disasters across the country will now be denied the relief they urgently need,” Pelosi added in a statement. “This is a rotten thing to do,” said Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA), who noted to reporters that Roy was blocking aid for his own home state of Texas. “We should have passed this months ago,” said Rep. Donna Shalala (D-FL), who asked for approval of the measure on the House floor. “I am beyond fed up. This is wrong,” said Rep. Cindy Axne (D-IA).  “This bill is about helping people – not about playing Washington politics.” “Republican politicians are playing games while people’s homes are literally underwater,” said Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-OH).   Unless Republicans relent next week, the House would not be able to set up a vote on the disaster aid measure until the week of June 3. “There are people who are really hurting, and he’s objecting,” Shalala said.  “He’s holding hostage thousands of people.”  The House has two ‘pro forma’ meetings scheduled for next week - on Tuesday and Friday.  Republicans could object to passing the bill at those times as well.
