And now some fresh pickings from the Political Grapevine...
Hillary Clinton had to call in reinforcements for a campaign fundraiser.
The New York Post reports -- the talk was scheduled as a women's only event -- costing almost $3,000 each.
Only about 50 tickets were sold by the deadline.
So the doors were thrown open to the male population -- and the deadline pushed back.
Twitter critics were quick to the punch lines.
"What difference does it make? Hillary allows men at 'women-only' event amid weak turnout."
A Washington Examiner writer noted --
"Imagine the outrage if a male candidate held a 'men only' event."
In the end -- about 90 people showed up -- to hear a half-hour speech by the former Secretary of State.
Taxes for Taxis
California taxpayers are paying for taxi rides for drunk state officials.
The Sacramento Bee reports that more than $2,500 a month -- goes for a 24-hour taxi service -- for senators who apparently just can't say no.
Members are given small plastic cards with the 24-hour transportation number available while the government is in session.
Critics say the rides are reflective of the legislature's sense of entitlement.
Quote -- "The answer is not in providing them drivers. The answer is in showing some restraint."
Four lawmakers in the past five years have been accused of drunken driving.
Finally -- chickens do not have eight legs -- and KFC wants everyone to know it.
The fast food giant is suing three Chinese companies whose social media account spread false claims - including that the company's chickens were genetically modified to have six wings and eight legs.
The lawsuit is part of a government crackdown against Internet marketers -- hired to manipulate online sentiment on behalf of clients -- by posting false information about competitors.
KFC is asking for the companies to cease spreading lies -- apologize -- and pay a fine.
