Hackers nabbed data on every federal employee, union claims




12 Jun 2015 11:24

AP Top News at 2:20 p.m. EDT
House rejects Obama on trade authorityWASHINGTON (AP) - The House derailed a high-profile White House-backed trade bill on Friday, a humiliating defeat for President Barack Obama inflicted by Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and dozens of union-backed lawmakers from his own party. The 302-126 vote left the legislation in perilous limbo, and came a few hours after Obama journeyed to the Capitol to deliver a last-minute personal plea to fellow Democrats to give him power to negotiate global trade deals that Congress could approve or reject but not change.
DANNEMORA, N.Y. (AP) - A prison employee being questioned about her suspected role in the escape of two killers supplied them with prohibited items before they cut their way out of the maximum-security institution, a prosecutor said Friday. Meanwhile, law enforcement officers refocused their search on a new area after residents reported seeing two men jumping a stone wall.
Court extends order blocking 'Angola 3' member's releaseST. FRANCISVILLE, La. (AP) - A federal appeals court extended an order Friday blocking the release of Albert Woodfox, the last incarcerated member of a group of Louisiana prisoners known as the Angola Three. A federal judge this week ordered Woodfox's "immediate" and "unconditional" release and barred the state from trying him a third time in the 1972 death of a prison guard, but an appeal by the state will keep him behind bars for the immediate future.
Parents say NAACP leader has lied about her racial identitySPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - NAACP leaders have responded to questions about the racial identity of the woman who leads a local chapter in Washington state by noting that ethnicity is not a qualifying criterion for leadership in the organization. Rachel Dolezal has led the Spokane, Washington, chapter of the African-American civil rights group for several years.
Before big speech, Clinton steps to left _ but not too farWASHINGTON (AP) - Union members broke into cheers when Hillary Rodham Clinton said she supported a $15-an-hour national minimum wage. "Thank you for giving me this chance to tell you all how much I support your movement," she told a conference organized by the Service Employees International Union. "I want to fight with you every day."
Iowa Republicans ending straw poll, a tradition born in 1979DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa Republican straw poll, once a staple campaign event for GOP presidential candidates, is vanishing because of waning interest from 2016 hopefuls and questions about its relevancy. A governing board for the Republican Party of Iowa voted unanimously during a private conference call Friday to drop the event, according to state GOP Chairman Jeff Kauffman. It was scheduled to be held in the central Iowa city of Boone on Aug. 8.
LILLE, France (AP) - Dominique Strauss-Kahn had a caustic reaction as four years of legal battles involving sex charges on two continents ended without a single conviction: "All that for this?" From a sordid New York hotel encounter to orgies in Paris, the former International Monetary Fund chief has admitted to questionable behavior that destroyed his political career and onetime presidential ambitions. He's a sexual libertine, by his own admission. But courts have repeatedly found no grounds to convict him as a criminal.
Officials: Hack exposed up to 14 million federal recordsWASHINGTON (AP) - As many as 14 million current and former civilian U.S. government employees had their personal information exposed to hackers, according to two people who were briefed on the investigation, a far higher figure than the 4 million the Obama administration initially disclosed. The newer estimates put the number of compromised records at between 9 million and 14 million going back to the 1980s, said one congressional official and one former US official, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because information disclosed in the confidential briefings includes classified details of the investigation.
At 91, Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe is a frequent flyerJOHANNESBURG (AP) - The African president has his hands firmly on the reins of government at home and is frequently on the move, flying around the globe. At age 91, Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe shows few signs of slowing down amid periodic speculation about whether he is ill or in decline.
Before Francis, long line of popes voiced environment alarmVATICAN CITY (AP) - Anxiety has gripped American conservatives over Pope Francis' upcoming encyclical on the environment. So much so that you might think a pope had never before blamed fossil fuels for global warming. Or accused energy companies of hoarding the Earth's resources at the expense of the poor. Or urged the rich to consume less and share more. But several of Francis' immediate predecessors have done just that, inspired by the Bible itself - raising the question of what all the fuss is about. Why would U.S. Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum, a devout Catholic who says he loves the pope, urge Francis to "leave science to the scientists" and stop talking about global warming? And why would conservative Catholic commentators attack the Vatican for hosting the U.N. secretary-general at a climate conference?
