Why did Broward destroy 2016 ballots? Sanders ally seeks US probe
Why did Broward destroy 2016 ballots? Sanders ally seeks US probeA South Florida law professor, running to unseat Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is calling for a federal investigation into the destruction of all ballots cast in the August 2016 Democratic primary in Broward County. The challenger, Tim Canova, has made repeated public records requests and filed a lawsuit seeking access to paper ballots cast in his unsuccessful race last year against the former Democratic National Committee chair in Florida’s 23rd congressional district. Over the past year, the Broward supervisor of elections, Dr. Brenda Snipes, has taken no action on Mr. Canova’s requests to examine the ballots, and she has urged a judge to throw Canova’s lawsuit out.

When ‘culture clash’ gets in the wayThis fall marked the 25th anniversary of a famous lecture by Samuel Huntington.

Columbus Circle without Columbus? New York's statue debate hits Italian-Americans hardWhen Joseph Guagliardo was a street kid growing up in Red Hook in Brooklyn, the statue of Christopher Columbus at the southwest corner of Central Park in Manhattan made him swell with pride. “My grandmother had three pictures hanging on a great big wall her entire life: the pope, Jesus, and Columbus,” says Mr. Guagliardo, who heads The National Council of Columbia Associations, a Brooklyn-based coalition of Italian-American civic groups from around the United States that continue to see the explorer as an icon of American resilience.

Trump’s tax plan: Why many middle-class Republicans support it
Trump’s tax plan: Why many middle-class Republicans support itRepublican leaders promised tax reform would streamline things so much that 9 out of 10 Americans could file their taxes on a postcard. Recommended: What does the federal government do with your money? From policy analysts to journalists, many have criticized President Trump’s tax bill as hurtful to middle-class Americans, and a betrayal of his populist campaign promises – particularly since tax cuts for individuals are set to expire after 2025.
