He has been a reporter for six years, covering right-wing activists, birds, politicians and palm readers.

    Re: “Sheriff Maketa, not letting evil prosper

    Hi April.
    Thanks for directing me to the sheriff's follow-up post. It's true that many polls included the gun show language. However, the poll I linked to in the post above did not include this caveat. The question was, "Do you favor or oppose a federal law requiring background checks on all potential gun buyers?" That poll found that 92 percent were in favor.
    Likewise, there is an April 4 poll conducted by Quinnipiac that asked, "Do you support or oppose - requiring background checks for all gun buyers?" That poll found 91 percent in favor.

    Re: “It's ready, aim, recall against Morse

    Hi Rob. I'm assuming that you are the same Rob Harris who is filed with the Sec of State's office as the registered agent for the El Paso Freedom Defense Committee.

    If that's the case, then you are probably aware that I attempted to contact you through multiple channels while preparing this article. I sent messages to the email addresses registered with the SOS, and I called both numbers listed. I even had an amusing but fruitless interaction with whoever it is that oversees your group's Facebook page.

    Next time, don't hesitate to give me a call.

    Re: “Mapping the money

    Tejon Tech, you need to mouse over the bars in the first graph to see the names.

    Micah, we will be updating the graphs with the latest reports.

    Re: “Revenge-porn victimization in eight rounds

    This blog features an essay by a woman who has been the victim of a revenge porn website. It is a compelling read, and well worth sharing. As I stated, this is the kind of story that is difficult to find.

    Our hope is to give further exposure and insight into the negative consequences for the men and women who are involuntarily posted to these websites.

    Re: “Raise money and go broke doing it

    TejonTech, we aren't aware of a complaint filed against Ethics Watch. Could you please provide more information?

    Re: “'More like heaven'

    TejonTech, Lutherans haven't been news for hundreds of years and neither have the Methodists, but thanks for the suggestion.

    Re: “Waldo Canyon Fire witness?

    Hi Chandra. I asked Mr. Bean, and no, they didn't get pictures or video of the vehicles. My understanding is that he didn't really think much of the vehicles until later, when he saw the location of the fire.

    MargRita, could you point me to the video from Carmichael that you are refering to? The only video I am aware of is the one was taken in the early afternoon, according to the correction in the video's description.
