Hillary Clinton accused of wiping all emails while under subpoena

Hillary Clinton has been accused of deleting all her emails while under subpoena.

The allegation, leveled by a Republican chairman for a House committee on Benghazi, is the latest in a series of claims that are hammering the former First Lady's reputation as 2016 approaches.

In a letter released on Friday night, Rep Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said the former Secretary of State has failed to produce a single new document in recent weeks and has refused to relinquish her server to a third party for an independent review.

Clinton's attorney, David Kendall, rubbished the claims.

House Dem: Global Warming Could Force Women to Trade Sex for Food

A senior House Democrat has once again issued an apocalyptic warning that climate change will hit women harder than men, and that it could drive millions of poor women to engage in “transactional sex” in order to provide food and water for their families.

Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) proposed a resolution on Wednesday that said as the climate changes, it will cause food and water scarcity around the world. That will create pressures on poor women in particular, since they are often charged with growing food and collecting water for their families.

By slowly killing himself he is saving hundreds of lives every day.

This touching story is about house pets and what happens when they are left behind after a catastrophe. And about a man who put his life on the line to save them.

Known as “the last man in Fukushima,” Naoto Matsumura is the only person who still lives in the strip of land known as the “Death Zone” outside the nuclear reactor in Fukushima. But the reason why he exposes himself daily to the radiation emissions from the ill-fated reactor is heart wrenching.

Amanda Knox Legal Saga finally Over

The murder conviction against Amanda Knox and her ex-boyfriend has been overturned by Italy’s highest court on Friday. This brings an end to the case that captured the attention of many because of the flip-flop decisions of the Italian courts and the interesting young people involved with the case.

ONE IN EIGHT UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS IN THE U.S. NOW HAS A WHITE-COLLAR JOB

180,000 illegals gain management and professional jobs since 2012

The share of all unauthorized immigrant workers with management and professional jobs grew to 13% in 2012 from 10% in 2007 — an overall increase of 180,000, according to new data from the Pew Research Center.

Meanwhile, the share with construction or production jobs declined to 29% from 34%.

“In a reflection of changes in the overall economy since the Great Recession, the U.S. unauthorized immigrant workforce now holds fewer blue-collar jobs and more white-collar ones than it did before the 2007-2009 recession,” Pew says.

Despite these advances, undocumented workers’ representation among all white-collar occupations remains low — just 2%. Agriculture has replaced construction as the industry with the largest share of undocumented workers. Sixteen percent of all ag workers were undocumented as of 2012, the most recent year for which data was available.

That compares with 12 percent for construction. In 2008, according to Pew, they comprised 14 percent of the construction industry and just 13 percent of farming.

Lawmakers Gasp as Democrat Goes After GOP Colleague’s 18-Month-Old Son During Racism Lecture

Audio and video has emerged showing Indiana state Rep. Vanessa Summers (D-Indianapolis) going after one of her Republican colleague’s 18-month-old son in attempt to make a point about prejudice during a recent House floor debate over the state’s controversial “religious freedom bill.”

While making her case against the Religious Freedom Restoration Act earlier this week, Summers said of GOP Rep. Jud McMillin’s young son, “I love his little son, but he’s scared of me because of my color — and that’s horrible.”

Lawmakers could be heard gasping and groaning at the comment.

“It’s true,” Summers said defiantly. “And that’s something we are going to work on. … I asked him please, ‘Introduce your child to some people of color so he won’t live his life as a prejudice person.’ I would like for you all to not vote for this bill.”

Gun control group petitions station to fire pro-gun reporter

Organization delivered petition with more than 6,300 signatures calling for the station’s general manager to fire the reporter

For the better part of two months, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence has led an effort to get Emily Miller fired from her job as chief investigative correspondent for the Washington, D.C. area Fox affiliate because of her pro-gun stance. The group raises the question that if she advocates for a topic that she covers, how does she remain fair and objective?

CSGV delivered a petition Tuesday with more than 6,300 signatures to WTTG Fox 5 calling for the station’s general manager to fire Miller.

Ladd Everitt, communications director for CSGV, described the event to Guns.com in an email: “The general manager wouldn’t come down to talk to us and accept the petition. We left it with their guy at the front and he assured us it would be delivered.”

“We got a very positive reaction from locals and one woman even stopped, took a photo of us, and said something about working with Emily at ABC and how her friends there would love the picture,” he added.

TOP GOV’T SCIENTISTS SAY NO TO VACCINES FOR THEIR KIDS

Call in the FBI and DHS. Surround Los Alamos Labs with tanks. Lock the place down

“The combined death rate from scarlet fever, diphtheria, whooping cough and measles among children up to fifteen shows that nearly 90 percent of the total decline in mortality between 1860 and 1965 had occurred before the introduction of antibiotics and widespread immunization. In part, this recession may be attributed to improved housing and to a decrease in the virulence of micro-organisms, but by far the most important factor was a higher host-resistance due to better nutrition.” —Ivan Illich, Medical Nemesis, Bantam Books, 1977

Albuquerque Journal, 3/20 reports:

2.3% of kids in Los Alamos public schools don’t get vaccinated. Their parents have received exemptions.

That’s the highest rate of non-vaccination in the state.

INDIANA’S GOVERNOR SIGNS BILL ALLOWING BUSINESSES TO REJECT GAY CUSTOMERS

Gamers, church groups and businesses threatening to pull conventions out of Indianapolis

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence signed into law on Thursday a measure that allows businesses to turn away gay and lesbian customers in the name of “religious freedom.”

The bill has sparked an uproar among gamers and church groups that hold their conventions in Indianapolis and businesses that are threatening to pull out of the city.

Even the NCAA — which is less than two weeks from hosting its men’s basketball Final Four in Indianapolis — was critical, saying the organization is “committed to an inclusive environment where all individuals enjoy equal access to events” as it hinted the bill could damage the city’s reputation as a host of major sporting events.

Sorry Gays, You Don’t Have The Right To Be Free From Discrimination

This week, Indiana became the latest state to sign a religious freedom bill into law. The legislation protects a private citizen’s or private business owner’s right to act according to their religious beliefs when deciding with whom to associate and do business.

Gay activists are incensed at this move, not because it targets them, but because it doesn’t. Indeed, there is no language in the bill stipulating anything one way or another in regards to gay people; it simply affirms the rights of private individuals and companies. Gay tyrants have only turned it into an “attack” on them because they demand, as per usual, special treatment and exemptions.

Despite everything they’ve ever claimed, they aren’t looking to be treated like everyone else. They want their rights enshrined in a special place, above, beyond, and transcending those of normal folk.

Babysitter has SEX with 11-month-old Baby – and Then Texts Pictures to Boyfriend

In a disgusting act of twisted perversion, a 29-year-old baby-sitter of an 11-month-old baby not only *allegedly* sexually abused the child, but took photos and texted them to her co-pedophile boyfriend. The despicable story doesn’t end there, either. They had plans for another little one that were just as heinous. More from Daily Headlines:

What a sick sad world we live in. When are we gonna have stronger punishments and more awareness for the real evil and that is pedophilia

According to court documents, Dack sent the photos via text message to her boyfriend, 37-year-old Patrick Schuneman.

Schuneman allegedly replied: “incredible” and “best ever seen. Thank you.”

Investigators said that they found graphic photos and text messages, including an extremely worrying exchange that revealed how the pair was planning to kidnap and sexually torture a young girl in Dack’s car.

Unbelievable: Judge Convicts Christian For Voicing Bible Verse

It’s important to understand that the UK does not have the same heritage of religious freedom as the U.S. Still, it is an important, civilized part of the Western world- which makes this recent report by WND all the more troubling:

A Christian street preacher convicted and fined by a U.K. judge, who also serves with an Islamic Shariah court, is guilty of having breached the public order by his choice of Bible verses.

Michael Overd, a former British paratrooper who has been street preaching for five years, was convicted this week of delivering “homophobic sermons” over a loudspeaker in Taunton, Somerset, last summer.

Overd faced two charges relating to claims by homosexuals he had offended them and another of causing “racially aggravated” harassment targeted at Muslims, the BBC reported. He was found guilty of only one of the “homophobic” charges.

Overd, 50, was fined $300 and ordered to pay compensation and costs totaling $1,800 at Bristol Crown Court.

“I have been ordered to pay compensation for causing ‘emotional pain’ to someone who approached me aggressively demanding to debate the issue,” said Overd. “There was no harm, injury or theft, just a simple disagreement over theology which I have now been fined for.”

Traffic Stop Leads to Drug Arrest

Lewes - The Delaware State Police have arrested a 21 year old man on several drug charges following a traffic stop early this morning in Lewes.

The incident began this morning, Saturday, March 28, 2015, at approximately 1:30 a.m., after a Delaware State Trooper on routine patrol on westbound SR24 just west of Mulberry Knoll Road, Lewes, observed a silver Honda Accord without its license plate light illuminated. The trooper activated the emergency equipment on his patrol vehicle and conducted a traffic stop of the Honda. As the trooper made contact with the operator of the vehicle, later identified as Nicholas T. Exler, 21, of Lewes, he immediately could detect the strong odor of marijuana coming from inside of the car. The trooper then had Exler exit his vehicle and upon conducting a pat down search of him, located a large bundle containing 130 baggies of heroin stamped with the word “Fire” or “Fat Boy” on them, in the cargo pocket of his pants. The trooper also located 3.8 grams of marijuana and 6.3 grams of cocaine inside of a plastic bag tucked into the rear of Exler’s pants, as well as over $275 in suspected drug sale proceeds. A subsequent search of Exler’s vehicle was then conducted at which time the trooper located a black BB gun which resembled a Glock semi-automatic hand gun under the front passenger seat.

Nicholas Exler was arrested and transported to Troop 7, Lewes, where he was charged with Possession with the Intent to Deliver Cocaine, Possession with the Intent to Deliver Heroin, two counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance in a Tier 1 Quantity, Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Driving with an Expired License, and Failure to Have a License Plate Light. He was arraigned at JP Court 3 and committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution for lack of $14,300.00 secured bail.

'Drunk' driving Secret Service agents may not have actually been drunk

WASHINGTON (ABC News) - New documents obtained by ABC News reveal conflicting accounts by top Secret Service officials about whether two senior agents were drunk when they drove into the White House complex.

It all started with an allegation -- via anonymous email -- that Secret Service agents were “extremely intoxicated” as they drove through an active crime scene set up just outside the White House complex on the evening of March 4.

But documents obtained by ABC News show that two senior Secret Service officials who believed the two agents involved in the now infamous incident were not intoxicated, based on their interactions with the agents that evening. The agents, Marc Connolly and George Ogilvie, had been accused of driving through the crime scene near a White House gate while possibly under the influence of alcohol after attending a retirement party for a colleague.

Hey, Pretty Boy: Do You Actually Know What’s In The News?

When "NBC Nightly News" anchor Brian Williams crashed and burned over all the tall tales he had told, there must have been mirth in the hallways at ABC.

In the highly competitive world of TV news, finding the right anchor is crucial to a network's brand. After running through a few pretenders, ABC had finally filled the iconic Peter Jennings' seat on "World News Tonight" just months earlier with David Muir. ABC was perfectly poised to snatch the top spot from NBC.

During his first six months as "World News" anchor, the newly minted Muir had beaten Williams only a half-dozen times. But after Williams' fall from grace, ABC sailed to the most-watched evening news program.

ABC executives could go for long lunches and look forward to cashing their bonus checks. Muir is young, dashing -- one of People magazine's 2014 "Sexiest Men Alive"! -- and the proud recipient of the Walter Cronkite journalism award.

The vanquished Brian Williams had told most of his fictions off air. The only thing ABC execs had to worry about with Muir was that the new guy would tell fairy tales ON AIR, which is so much less important.

Four (Black) Cops Killed in Seven Days — Where’s the Outrage?

Wednesday, March 4: Fulton County police detective Terence Avery Green was killed, shot in the head by a suspect. According to WXIA-TV, Atlanta: “Police responded to a shots fired call early Wednesday. They were told the suspect was possibly intoxicated. Neighbors said the man was going from house to house, banging on doors and firing a long barrel gun. …

“(Fulton County Assistant Police Chief Gary) described the situation as an ambush, saying the officers ‘were trying to do their job, they were trying to protect this neighborhood from someone who was shooting. And they had no other option but to do their job. And the way it appears to me, they were ambushed without warning.’ …

“Green was a veteran officer with nearly 22 years of service. He is survived by his parents and his four sons.”

Thursday, March 5: Officer Robert Wilson III, while on duty and in uniform, walked into a game store to purchase a gift for his son. Two men robbed the store, and shot and killed Officer Wilson. According to CNN: “Wilson was standing at the counter across from employees at the GameStop store when two brothers, Carlton Hipps and Ramone Williams, walked in carrying guns, police said.

“They allegedly stuck up the store with at least five patrons and two employees inside.

“‘They said they thought it was going to be an easy target,’ said police spokesman Capt. James Clark. … Wilson confronted (the suspects), and a firefight broke out, police said.

“The officer, an eight-year veteran, stepped away from others in the store to keep them out of the crossfire, police said after watching the store’s security camera footage.

“He was a hero and a warrior, Clark said. “He fought until the very, very end, firing at both of them.”… Within 30 to 40 seconds, 50 shots fell, he said. …

“Wilson was 30 years old. In addition to his son, he leaves behind a 1-year-old daughter. His son turns 10 on Monday. The game was also going to be a birthday present.”

Mathias pushing for study on Wallops’ future capacity

Following a similar measure approved last month in Virginia, State Sen. Jim Mathias (D38) is sponsoring a Senate joint resolution that encourages NASA to take steps to allow the launch and landing of commercial vehicles and spacecraft at Wallops Island.

“The resolution would urge NASA to perform an environmental impact study to have booster rockets launched and landed,” Mathias said, “which puts us on a footing for contractual work. Right now it’s all unmanned.”

The move by both states is in response to a similar study nearing completion for the launch facility in Cape Canaveral, Fla., according to the resolution’s text. It also states this study is a necessary step in getting FAA approval for launch or landing permits.

Obedience School Sues Yelper For $65K Over Negative Review

A few months ago, a Virginia woman began taking her dog to obedience class, and when the training wasn’t what she expected, she requested a pro-rated refund and wrote a negative review of the school on Yelp. Now she’s facing a $65,000 defamation lawsuit.

The Washington Post reports on this lawsuit, the latest in a string of legal actions filed by businesses against customers who vent on Yelp and other online review platforms.

In this case, the customer says she was expecting that the $175 training program would help her socialize her puppy so that it possibly be used as a therapy dog. However, she claims that the conditions of the school were not conducive to this goal so she requested a partial refund.

“In a nutshell, the services delivered were not as advertised and the owner refused a refund,” she wrote in her Yelp review, which has since been removed from the site.

School named after war hero forces child to shave off military-style haircut

Adam Stinnett looks up to his older stepbrother – a soldier in the U.S. Army. So when it came time to get a haircut, the seven-year-old told his mother he wanted a basic military-style cut. And that’s exactly what he got – high and tight – just like his stepbrother.

Adam got his haircut on March 8. On March 9, his mother got a letter from the principal of Bobby Ray Memorial Elementary School in McMinnville, Tennessee.

It seems they were not all that thrilled with the second grader’s new hairdo. The principal told Amy Stinnett that her son’s haircut was distracting – and needed to be fixed.

Church Of Scientology Calls New HBO Documentary 'Bigoted'

The Church of Scientology is famous for its efforts to silence its critics, but it has not blocked an upcoming HBO film that turns a harsh light on the powerful organization and its leadership.

Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, directed by Academy Award-winning documentarian Alex Gibney, will debut Sunday over the vigorous objection of Scientology officials.

For the film, based on a book by Lawrence Wright, Gibney dug up extensive archival footage of Scientology's founder, the late science-fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard. Gibney explores Hubbard's somewhat bizarre beliefs, including his theory that humans are immortal spiritual beings called "thetans" that can roam the universe and that become incarnated in different bodies over billions of years.

Police Departments Open Up 'Safe Lots' For Craigslist Transactions

The online classified site Craigslist updated its safety page this week, encouraging users to make exchanges at local police stations. Some police departments across the country are already offering up their headquarters as voluntary "safe zones" for Craigslist deals.

Sebastian Rivera likes to ride BMX bikes. And when he's customizing his ride, he says he'll hop onto Craigslist to look for free stuff or to trade bike parts with people in his area.

"It's pretty easy, as long as like I get the person's number or I get their Facebook ... another way to communicate besides Craigslist," Rivera says.

As we talk in downtown Hartford, Conn., Rivera echoes what a lot of people have told me: Be cautious with anonymous online deals — get as much information as you can about the person you're dealing with and always meet in a public place.

Now, the Hartford Police Department is hoping the public's place of choice will be aparking lot right outside its headquarters.

Audit: Md Misallocated $28.4 Million For Flawed Health Exchange

Maryland misallocated $28.4 million in federal money for its flawed health care exchange and should pay the money back, according to a federal audit set to be released Friday.

The audit by the inspector general of the Department of Health and Human Services found that Maryland misallocated costs to federal grants instead of the Medicaid program in 2013 and 2014, failing to use updated estimated enrollment data when it became available.

"The state agency misallocated these costs because it did not have adequate internal controls to ensure the proper allocation costs," the audit said.

In a response included in the audit, the state said it believes it complied with guidance from the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Nine Billionaires Are About To Remake New York's Public Schools

Hedge-fund manager Whitney Tilson stands at a Harvard club podium in midtown Manhattan, facing a room full of investors eating eggs and bacon, and eager to learn more about charter schools. The walls of the wood-paneled room are lined with the portraits of Tilson's Harvard forefathers. Above the podium where Tilson stands hangs an ornamental gold ship, swaying. In the corner of the room is a large screen, on which the logos of the day's sponsors, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Walton Family Foundation, float like guardian angels. Two large stone fireplaces dominate the west end of the room. Their exaggerated mantelpieces are each decorated with two empty crests and a laurel—symbols of power drained of any purpose.

Tilson begins an enormous PowerPoint presentation, speaking of the inequities black and Latino children face in the public school system. "Your entire prison population is in these red bars," he explains, showing red bars indicating the high percentage of poor black and Latino children who could not read at a fourth-grade level. No such children, nor their parents, seemed to have been invited to this presentation.

Despite the role poverty plays in determining whose kids gets stuck in those red bars, Tilson declares to the room of Ivy League investors, "This is not rocket science. Notice on my list there's no #5, no Spend More Money. You get new facilities and smaller classrooms but nothing changes. Nobody believes anymore that if you give us more money we'll solve all the problems."

HISTORICAL COMMENTS BY GEORGE CHEVALLIER 3-28-15

Where is it?
In Wicomico County, there were many post offices in 1891. Most of these were situated in rural country stores. The owner was declared the postmaster and received a portion of the receipts generated by the mail. It is amazing to realize in this day and age that some of these post offices generated less than $30 annually for the storekeeper. This was in addition to his income from groceries, etc.

The listed post offices in 1891 were at Allen, Athel, Barren Creek Springs, Bivalve, Capitola, Collins Wharf, Fruitland, New Hope, Nanticoke, Pittsville, Parsonsburgh, Powellville, Riverton, Salisbury, Sharptown, Twilley, Tyaskin, Walston, Wanamaker, Wango, Whayland, White Haven and Whiton. The spelling is as it appears in the directory, so do not blame me. I do know that Athel is supposed to be Athol and Parsonsburgh is Parsonsburg.

By collecting post cards, I have been involved with other collectors that collect post marks from as many Maryland or Wicomico County Post Offices as possible. Since this list is from 1891, there were some Post Offices that had been discontinued by that time. There are also some larger Post Offices that had not materialized by 1891. Hebron is one that comes to mind. That is the year that the railroad came through Hebron and a post office quickly followed.

Another post office that came after 1891 and has since disappeared is the one at Roaring Point. It was probably in Harry Willing’s store. The store still remains, but is unoccupied today. Only the Campground remains where once a thriving tomato cannery and two oyster houses kept business in the area humming.

The listing for Wetipquin is under their former name of Wanamaker. Mardela was listed as Barren Creek Springs. Anyone who knows where the following are, please comment as to their location: Capitola, Collins Wharf (was it anywhere near where Collins Wharf Rd. is now?), New Hope, Twilley, Whayland and Whiton. Twilley may have been near Pittsville. There is a Whiton Rd. between Willards and Snow Hill. Also, Capitola Rd. is on the west side of the county. These may be clues as to their locations, but I am not sure. Any help?

Head of House Benghazi probe says Hillary Clinton wiped email server 'clean'

Hillary Clinton wiped her email server "clean," permanently deleting all emails from it, the leader of the House committee investigating the 2012 terror attacks in Benghazi said Friday.

Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said the former secretary of state has failed to produce a single new document in recent weeks and has refused to relinquish her server to a third party for an independent review, as Gowdy has requested.

"While it is not clear precisely when Secretary Clinton decided to permanently delete all emails from her server, it appears she made the decision after October 28, 2014, when the Department of State for the first time asked the secretary to return her public record to the Department," Gowdy said in a statement. “Not only was the secretary the sole arbiter of what was a public record, she also summarily decided to delete all emails from her server ensuring no one could check behind her analysis in the public interest.”

Vice to Start Daily Newscast on HBO

HBO and Vice Media announced an expansion of their partnership on Thursday, including the launch of a daily Vice newscast on the pay cable outlet.

Vice already airs a weekly news show on HBO, a more personal-style look at the world's hot spots than traditional news outlets. That Friday night program, which currently airs 14 times a year, will expand to 35 episodes a year over the course of the new four-year agreement.

HBO and Vice offered few details about the daily newscast, other than to say that it will draw on 30 global bureaus and "feature the original on-the-ground reporting viewers expect from Vice." It will begin sometime this fall and be shown on the main HBO network, but Vice spokesman Jake Goldman said a time slot had not been set yet.

Foster Kids put on too many Psych Drugs

Many children in foster care are being overmedicated with antipsychotic drugs they may not really need, or the drugs are being given incorrectly, according to a government review obtained by CBS News.

The report by the Inspector General for the Department of Health and Human Services looked at concerns surrounding the use of these powerful drugs in children on Medicaid. Many children on Medicaid are in the foster care system.

"Psychotropic drugs are being used in these children, and we don't really know what the side effects are in children this young," said CBS News correspondent Anna Werner. "There's not a lot of research because you can't really test these drugs on children."

The report looked at a class of prescription medications called second-generation antipsychotics. Five of the drugs -- aripiprazole, olanzapine, paliperidone, quetiapine fumarate, and risperidone -- have been approved by the FDA for use in children to treat schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and irritability associated with autism.

Petition: Bring Charges of Treason Against Barack Obama

A fresh petition on the White House’s website is calling for treason charges to be brought against President Obama. The petition, which is quickly gathering signatures, mentions three primary reasons concerning why Obama ought to be charged with treason.

This seemingly comes in response to one started just several days before, calling for 47 Republicans who sent a letter to Iran to be charged with the same. It outlines three principal arguments for the treason charges: conceding war-making powers to foreign matters, refusing to ensure America’s borders and giving support and comfort to the enemy. That attempt has thus far garnered over 260,000 signatures. Turnabout is fair play it’d seem.

Essentially, he attempted changing foreign policy behind President Bush’s back. As Headline Politics reported, President Obama is in fact just as guilty, perhaps more so, of the same act of treason under the very definition used by liberals against his Republican coworkers.

This new petition has just received 16,000 signatures as of this bill, a far cry from the 100,000 that would actually urge the White House to issue a response.

Pa. media doesn't report this about Perdue's hexane pollution: By Ray Wallace

For five years, Maryland-based chicken seller Perdue has been seeking approval for a soybean-crushing factory in Pennsylvania. Instead of properly disposing of large amounts of waste hexane gas, Perdue wants its factory to save money by releasing that dangerous neurotoxin into the air of the Susquehanna Valley -- one of the already most-polluted areas in the U.S.

For five years, Susquehanna Valley media has NOT reported:
1.
The millions of pounds of waste hexane gas that Perdue soybean factories have long been releasing into Virginia and Maryland air.
2.
The nonstop harm being needlessly done to Virginia and Maryland air, food, water, farms, businesses, schools, churches, and families.
3.
The fact that -- after Perdue executives publicly boasted not being afraid of breathing hexane -- they are now planning to safely move 150 executive offices out of Maryland and far away from their own Maryland hexane pollution.

New Homeowner Has To Sell House Because Of Comcast’s Incompetence, Lack Of Competition

Only months after moving into his new home in Washington state, Consumerist reader Seth is already looking to sell his house. He didn’t lose his job or discover that the property is haunted. No, Seth can’t stay much longer because no one can provide broadband service to his address; even though Comcast and CenturyLink both misled him into thinking he’d be connected to their networks and in spite of the fact that his county runs a high-speed fiberoptic network that goes very near to his property.
