    A pregnant Florida woman showed up to vote while going into labor — and refused to go to the hospital until she’d cast her ballot in the presidential election, according to a report. The civic-minded woman stayed in her car while her husband ran into the Orange County Supervisor of Elections Office to request her mail-in ballot on Tuesday afternoon, The Orlando Sentinel reported. Eileen Deliz, an early voting clerk for the Supervisor of Elections, told the newspaper that another staffer issued a vote-by-mail ballot for the woman and waited as she filled it out in her car. Neither the woman nor her husband, who weren’t publicly identified, explained why she’d showed up to vote as she was going into labor. “Maybe she wanted to come in-person at one point and that’s why she was waiting, who knows. But she wouldn’t go to the hospital until she voted,” Deliz...
    Federal prosecutors in Illinois are requesting a judge keep "Cheer" star Jerry Harris detained as he awaits trial for child pornography. According to court documents obtained by Fox News, prosecutors argue that Harris would be a danger to the community if he were ordered home detention ahead of trial. The Netflix star was arrested in September for allegedly enticing an underage boy to produce sexually explicit photos and videos of himself. He has been charged with one count of producing child pornography. The charge of production of child pornography carries a minimum sentence of 15 years in prison and a maximum of 30 years. In the government's motion for pretrial detention filed on Tuesday in the Northern District of Illinois, prosecutors allege Harris, "by his own admission, has forever damaged at least 5 to 10 minor boys" and as such, he "either does not care about being caught committing his offenses, or simply cannot...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — An Illinois House committee investigating possible disciplinary action against Speaker Michael Madigan over his ties to the ComEd bribery scandal won’t meet again until after the election, after its Democratic chairman accused Republicans of using the panel “as a stage for political theater.” “At every step of this process, our cooperation has been accompanied with the proviso that we will not allow this committee to be used as a stage for political theater – an admonishment our Republican colleagues appear to have taken more as a challenge than as a reflection of this committee’s serious work,” Rep. Emanuel “Chris” Welch said in a statement Tuesday afternoon. “The committee will meet again in person on November 5 in Springfield – without the backdrop of a political campaign.” Welch’s decision not to hold further hearings comes one week after he declined to allow a vote on Republicans’ request to issue...
    Democrats, led by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), formally requested a delay in the Senate confirmation process for Judge Amy Coney Barrett until after the presidential inauguration. On Thursday, Feinstein, ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, formally requested to delay the process, citing a lack of sufficient time to vet Trump’s Supreme Court nominee. “The timeline for consideration of Judge Barrett’s nomination is incompatible with the Senate’s constitutional role,” Feinstein wrote. “We again urge you to delay consideration of this nomination until after the presidential inauguration. ” “The Senate and the American public deserve a deliberative, thorough process, and this falls far short,” she continued, contending that the timeline is a “sharp departure from past practice.” The 87-year-old senator added that the timeline “undercuts the Senate’s ability to fulfill its advice and consent role and deprives the American people of a meaningful opportunity to gauge the nominee and her record...
    The White House has blocked an order from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that would’ve kept cruise liners docked until early next year, reports say. The CDC’s current ‘no sail’ policy, first put in place in April, was set to expire on Wednesday. During a Tuesday coronavirus task force meeting, CDC Director Robert Redfield reportedly recommended extending the current order again until at least mid-February, 2021.  Redfield reportedly voiced concern the ships would likely become virus hotspots again, just as they had been at the beginning of the pandemic. But a senior health official told Axios that Redfield was ultimately overruled as the administration instead plans to extend the order only until October 31, before permitting ships to take to the seas once again. The official said the decision to reject Redfield’s proposal was politically motivated, with the Trump administration reluctant to upset the cruise industry in the...

    The Institute of the National Fund for Housing for Workers (Infonavit) announced this Friday that it was approved to extend the term to receive applications for access to unemployment support. In other words, if you lost your job, you can request this support so that your credit is not affected, for example, with the accumulation of interest. According to a statement from Infonavit, this is intended to enable workers to preserve their assets and have financial solvency during the Covid-19 health emergency, and to continue contributing to the preservation of sources of employment. The deadline for receiving applications will last until August 31, 2020. We extend the deadline to request a protection measure until August 31.

    The IRS is sticking with the tax deadline of July 15, telling taxpayers on Monday it won't provide another postponement of the filing date. If taxpayers aren't ready to file by July 15, they can request an extension, which will give them until October 15 to get their returns to the tax agency.  Back in March the IRS had pushed Tax Day from April 15 to July 15 because of widespread "shelter-in-place" orders across the nation due to the coronavirus pandemic, which caused millions of people to self-isolate and offices and businesses to close. That decision provided taxpayers with a three-month breather to both file and pay their taxes.  Some advocates and lawmakers have recently argued that taxpayers needed yet another delay, pointing out to the continuing struggle to contain the virus and widespread financial turmoil caused by the pandemic. The unemployment rate has surged to 13.3% in just a few...
