Under the “Client Responsibilities,” meaning women seeking child care, those women must prove that they have exhausted every avenue in trying to obtain child support from the father, unless, of course, that father happens to be a rapist. But now, they must take the extra step to prove that their rape was, in fact, a “forcible rape”...

One has to wonder where the Republicans are coming up with this crap. Do they sit around in their offices and just think of ways they can stick it to the female citizenry in every humiliating way possible? I do believe that’s what they do, and their hatred of women, if it wasn’t before, is painfully obvious.

A Chicago judge today ordered U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh, R-Ill., to explain why he's $100,000 behind in his child support payments.
Walsh, a Tea Party favorite, was not in the courtroom when Cook County Circuit Judge Raul Vega issued his ruling. When Vega asked why Walsh wasn't present, the Chicago Sun-Times reports that his lawyer responded, "Mr. Walsh is a U.S. congressman."
"Well, he's no different than anyone else," Vega is quoted as saying.
Walsh, a freshman lawmaker elected in November, and his ex-wife, Laura, have been embroiled in this child-support dispute for years. The dispute made national headlines after a Sun-Times report came out as Congress and the White House were negotiating an increase to the debt limit.
"Now this is messed up, I have a friend that fell behind on his child support and had his drivers license suspended as well as a threat of jail time... Something is wrong with this picture, this Fool can surely afford his payments, and has Not, so why is he any different than anyone else??? Can we feel free to call him Dead Beat Rep Joe Walsh???"Source: USA Today A Chicago judge today ordered U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh, R-Ill., to... more
In this exclusive sneak peek at "Back on Track," Jeremiah's mother Margaret confronts him about his poor grades and threatens to pull him out of football if he doesn't make academics his first priority. She informs Jeremiah, to his chagrin, that she'll be coming to school with him until his grades improve.
"4th and Forever"" chronicles the 2010 football season of Long Beach Polytechnic High School, touted by Sports Illustrated as the "Sports School of the Century" and boasts the largest roster of high school players who have gone on to the NFL. After decades of success, Poly had a down year in 2009. They had their worst season in 15 years and lost to local rival Lakewood for the first time in over 25 years. After years of being pegged as "the team to beat," the aura of invincibility is gone. The players are worried that their hopes for a college scholarship have dimmed. The clock is ticking and the question is: Can Head Football Coach Raul Lara pull the team together for one more season of greatness? And, can the players avoid the temptations of the street, succeed in the classroom, and emerge victorious on the field?

Sheriff Kathy Witt wants the citizens of Lexington to re-elect her this November. I will give you more than twenty reasons not to re-elect her as Sheriff. In fact, I am hoping that after examining the evidence I am about to provide you will agree that we should be arresting, not electing, Sheriff Kathy Witt for abuse of the powers entrusted to her.
Twenty attempts in roughly three weeks have been made to serve me a summons after my original summons went unserved for ten years. http://x.co/6T8V These are twenty of the many reasons I will detail that we should not re-elect Sheriff Kathy Witt.

On April 26, 2007 Lt. Keith Stevens of the Lexington-Fayette County Sheriff’s Department arrived at the home of my mother, Jane Hignite, with whom I live. My mother was there as was my youngest sibling, Brandon, a 27 year old man who was born with Downs Syndrome. Lt. Stevens told my mother that he had a summons to serve me in a child custody case. The County Attorney’s Office had been looking for me for quite a while, he said. Now that they had caught up with me I was in big trouble. To my brother Brandon, Lt. Stevens said “What do you think of your brother now. You are an uncle and he didn’t even tell you. We’re going to put him in jail for a long time.” My mother told Lt. Stevens that I was at work delivering pizzas and that he would find me downtown at my place of employment, A Slice of Chicago.
Lt. Stevens left his business card with my mother. He then came to Slice of Chicago, marched into the back of the building where the pizzas are made and loudly demanded to know where I was, stating again for all to hear that Chris Hignite was in a lot of trouble. Stevens was told by the owner of Slice that I was on a delivery and that he, Stevens, could wait outside for me to return. When I did return, Stevens handed me a copy of a Civil Summons issued for me on November 11, 1997 and signed by Robert M. True and Amy Fowler, a Summons to appear in the case of Michelle Brizendine and her daughter, Madison. Later I would learn that this Civil Summons had been occasioned by a Court Complaint pursuing child support issued on November 4, 1997, and signed by Fayette County. Margaret Kannensohn and her assistants Byron L. Ockerman, Christopher E. Hutchison, R. Barry Minton.
On April 27, 2007 I called family court attorney Jenny Scott and on May 1, 2007 my mother and I met with her. Ms. Scott had already collected copies of papers from the County Attorney’s office, and after some discussion of the case, I signed a contract with her, for an initial fee of $750, to represent my interests in the upcoming case. I pointed out to Ms. Scott that, in the upper right corner of the original of the copy with which I had been served someone, at some time, had written by hand ‘07-17-06’. Ms. Scott noted with interest that the section entitled ‘Proof of Service’ had not been filled in or signed by either Stevens or myself, thus making the document appear as if it had never been served at all. “But,” she said, “I do not want to make a deal out of it”.
A further set of facts is even more remarkable. On April 26, 2007 Lt. Keith Stevens told my mother that the County Attorney’s Office had been looking for me “for quite a while”. On June 28, 2007 The DNA nurse told me, in the presence of Michelle and Madison Brizendine, that her paperwork showed that three attempts had been made to serve the summons. [The DNA nurse stated, by the way, that she “didn't work for the city but for the testing facility”; nevertheless, her office has doors adjoining those of both the County Attorney and the Family Court Judge, and she also has access to their mutual conference room.] On May 1, 2007 my attorney, Jenny Scott also told me that three attempts had been made to serve the summons and she showed me a copy of a piece of stenographer’s notebook paper bearing three signatures and three dates. Ms. Scott noted, again with considerable interest, that she had never seen the summons attempts listed on a separate piece of paper; furthermore, that in every other case she had known the dates of attempts to serve a summons and the names of the servers were written on the back of the summons itself. “But,” she said, “I do not want to make a deal out of it”. Finally, in the last week of October, my attorney, told me that nobody now remembered the note listing three attempts to serve the Summons, but that the County Attorney’s office claims it can produce a carbon copy of a note on scrap paper of one attempt to serve it. And, yes, you guessed it, my own attorney, Jenny Scott, did not want to make a deal out of it.
I, however, did want to make a deal of it. It was Wednesday, October 31. There was a hearing of the case scheduled for November 1 at 9 a.m. The County Attorney was asking the judge for a summary ruling that my attorney Ms. Scott called “devastating”. I had cleared the fact that I could not be at this hearing and we had agreed that Ms. Scott would act in my interest. Both Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning I tried unsuccessfully to reach Ms. Scott by phone and in person. I then hand-delivered and slid under her office door a letter of instructions containing the specific wording of several motions which I wished to have entered into the court record. That evening my mother, Jane, and my brother, Cory visited Michelle Brizendine at her home. And on Thursday morning, Ms. Jenny Scott sold me down the river.
Ms. Scott had decided to settle the matter herself. She said that she didn’t want to cause ill relations with anyone in the County Attorney’s office. She said that my motions would be have been ignored by the Judge. I told her I didn’t care if the judge ignored or denied the motions; the very fact that the record showed that an attempt had been made to enter them would have done the trick. Ms. Scott said she had taken what she thought was the best offer and that she didn’t want to do battle.
Today, on November 6, 2007 at 4:29 p.m. my attorney, Jenny Scott finally returned a number of calls that I had made to her. She said again that she had read my motions, she said there were “valid points” in all of them. Nevertheless, she would be the laughing stock of family court if she had attempted to file them, she was a family court lawyer, she did not sign on with me to take on the County Attorney’s office, and perhaps I needed to see a criminal lawyer. To put the matter as she herself had put it at our very first meeting: “My daddy told me not to shit where I eat.”
The motions, “the valid points” that would make Ms. Scott “the laughing stock of family court” were based on these following six claims:

Why Does Man Owe Support For Child Just 7 Years Younger? – Central Florida News 13 | Fathers' Rights, Child Support, CustodyIt is always amazing how easy it is for government agencies to point fingers of obligation at people, and how they have the administrative ability to essentially screw your life up. This case represents some incompetence, which, in my opinion should require some compensation
One man told News 13 the state wants him to pay for the child of a woman he’s never met, and is likely impossible of fathering.
“I’m 22, just turned,” said Rusty Cole, a National Guardsman. “I was born in ’87. The child [was] born in ’95.”
But according to records, Cole owes child support for a child born when he was just 7 years old.It is always amazing how easy it is for government agencies to point fingers of... more
