Rep. Dennis Kucinich Falls Out of Favor With Hometown Paper

Now some fresh pickings from the Political Grapevine:

The Usual Suspects?

The former deputy head of the Egyptian Domestic Security Agency says the group behind yesterday's deadly bombings in Dahab is not Arab Terrorists — it's Israel.

General Fouad Allam, who in 2004 pinned the bombing of a Sinai hotel on the Israeli Intelligence service Mossad, said only the Israelis had anything to gain from carrying out the attacks arguing that Arabs would not have targeted areas frequented by Egyptians.

What's more, Allam believes Mossad is involved because, just prior to the bombings, Israel warned its citizens to avoid the region because of possible terror attacks.

Rush to Judgment?

The Center for Responsive Politics is calling on Illinois Representative Bobby Rush to recuse himself from a key telecommunications vote before the Energy and Commerce Committee — after a report that the community center he founded received a $1 million grant from a major phone company.

Dennis Kucinich may have gained national prominence during his long shot 2004 presidential campaign, but his national ambitions have cost him the support of his hometown paper.

Parents Rights Coalition argues the school is legally obligated to notify parents when teaching sex education. But the school's superintendent says the book isn't sex-ed, but is merely "teaching children about the world they live in."

The same school made headlines last year after sending kindergarten students home with a “diversity book bag,” including material on homosexual families.
