Sanders Supporters Sue to Extend Calif. Voter Registration Deadline Both Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton visited Los Angeles Monday to try to gin up new voters and campaign contributions. May 23 is the last day for voters to register to be eligible to vote in the June 7 California primary. That deadline to register could be pushed back, however, if a group of Bernie Sanders supporters has its way. They’ve filed a lawsuit demanding an extension to the deadline, saying that independent voters in California planning to mail in their ballots are being shut out of the Democratic primary because of confusing registration rules. In California’s 2012 primary, 65 percent of primary ballots cast were cast by mail. So why are the requirements so confusing?
Accusations of lying fly between James Comey and White House During his testimony Thursday, former FBI Director James Comey accused President Trump and other White House officials of lying when they said the FBI was in disarray and its staff had lost confidence in him. President Trump’s lawyer said Comey was wrong -- that the president never asked for his loyalty, and never asked him to back off the investigation into former NSA director Michael Flynn.
In 'Speechless,' Scott Silveri combines comedy, family & disability Scott Silveri has written and produced sitcoms for more than 20 years. In all that time, he never encountered a TV family that looked anything like the one he grew up in -- with a mom, a dad...and a brother with cerebral palsy. He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."

Why is Trump so behind on filling staff jobs, establishing concrete policies? Yesterday Donald Trump signed a “decision memo” to revamp the air traffic control system. But there was little legislative detail in the plan. There’s not much to other splashy announcements from the White House, including tax cuts and the arms deal with Saudi Arabia. And hundreds of positions are unfilled in federal agencies.
