Bombshell report on Trump taxes sends GOP nominee reeling

Trump tax reportIt took less than a day for October to produce an "October surprise."

Donald Trump reported a nearly $1 billion loss on his 1995 tax returns and could therefore have avoided paying federal income taxes for almost two decades, the New York Times reported on Saturday, putting another unexpected exclamation point on what had already been one of the worst weeks for any presidential nominee in recent memory.


Height of Hypocrisy: Trump's history with sex tapes

Trump sex tapesIn an apparent pique on Friday morning, Donald Trump lashed out on Twitter against Alicia Machado― the former Miss Universe winner who has become a forceful critic of the GOP presidential nominee ― accusing her of, among other things, appearing in a sex tape.

The charges, and Trump, came off as manic; not least because they were leveled at roughly 5:30 a.m. They were also hypocritical. Trump had made a cameo in a softcore porn film in 1999, titled “Playboy Video Centerfold 2000,” BuzzFeed News reported on Friday afternoon. He wasn’t naked or having sex, just breaking a champagne bottle over a car in the video’s opening scenes. Still, of the two principals in this argument, only one ― the accuser ― had actually made an appearance in porn.

Wisconsin Is Systematically Failing to Provide the Photo IDs Required to Vote in November

voter idZack Moore, a 34-year-old African-American man, moved from Chicago to Madison last year. He worked at a car wash and then a landscaping job before breaking his leg and becoming unemployed. After staying with his brother, he’s now homeless and sleeping on the streets of Madison.

On September 22, he went to the DMV to get a photo ID for voting, as required by Wisconsin’s strict voter-ID law. He brought his Illinois photo ID, Social Security card, and a pay stub for proof of residence. But he didn’t have a copy of his birth certificate, which had been misplaced by his sister in Illinois, so the DMV wouldn’t give him an ID for voting. “I’m trying to get a Wisconsin ID so I can vote,” Moore told the DMV. “I don’t have my birth certificate, but I got everything else.”


How Donald Trump’s Company Violated the United States Embargo Against Cuba

TrumpA company controlled by Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for president, secretly conducted business in Communist Cuba during Fidel Castro’s presidency despite strict American trade bans that made such undertakings illegal, according to interviews with former Trump executives, internal company records and court filings.

Documents show that the Trump company spent a minimum of $68,000 for its 1998 foray into Cuba at a time when the corporate expenditure of even a penny in the Caribbean country was prohibited without U.S. government approval. But the company did not spend the money directly.


Trump Foundation Not Properly Certified

Trump Foundation Not Properly LicensedThe Trump Foundation has been dogged with scandals in recent weeks and a new report indicates that the foundation never got the certification it needed in New York to allow it to solicit money from the public.

Any charity that solicits more than $25,000 per year has to get a special registration before doing so. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman could order the charity to stop raising money immediately if he finds that the foundation raised money in violation of the law.
