Why would anyone want to actually investigate something by checking facts? It is so much easier to just press "share" or "forward" and keep spreading those rumors and lies. Or for some of the "trolls" - more fun to just say outrageous things to get a reaction.

How clever. Is that one of your classroom lessons? Teaching to vent frustrations with personal attacks?

Problem with all of these studies is a lack of strong scientific support in the conclusions. You can't control "for other variables" with any real chance of veracity. We will...on the other hand...have a small experiment here which should give a good indication of the truth of these ideas. Kids in the new schools should perform notably better (11%???) then the ones still stuck in the old ones.…

Peoria Congressman allegedly solicited contributions of more than $5,000 for a political action committee to help an Illinois colleague

From chicagotribune.com: Congressional investigators have recommended a full House Ethics Committee probe of Rep. Aaron Schock for allegedly soliciting contributions of more than $5,000 for a political action committee to help an Illinois colleague engaged in a bitter primary battle last year, records released today showed.

Moreover, the Office of Congressional Ethics also listed Rep. Rodney Davis, elected last November as a new GOP congressman from southern Illinois, as a “non-cooperating witness” in its investigation into how funds flowed into the PAC, the Campaign for Primary Accountability.

Among the PAC’s top funders is Joe Ricketts, whose family’s trust was used to buy the Chicago Cubs.

In releasing the investigatory report on Schock, the House Ethics Committee had no comment “pending completion of its initial review.”

Under an FEC advisory opinion, lawmakers can solicit donations of up to $5,000 for independent expenditure political action committees. Schock’s attorneys contended the lawmaker’s actions had nothing to do with his role as a House member and that his communications did not fit the definition of “solicitation” under the FEC’s regulations.

“The release by the Ethics Committee of this report from the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) is just one more step in the long process of adjudicating ethics complaints that can be submitted by anyone for any reason,” Steve Dutton, Schock’s communications director, said in a statement.
