Following their initial encounter, the two reportedly took the young girl out to dinner and then back to Simmons’ apartment to show her some work they had been working on. However, shortly after, the woman said Simmons began to get aggressive, tearing off her clothes and making sexual advances as Ratner watched, despite her calls for help. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Khaligh said Simmons then tried to force her to have sex with him but eventually settled for coerced oral sex, again as the then-up-and-coming music video director watched.

Goodman usually force-fed the “family values” narrative, which appears to have been a cover-up for his secret affair, to hold up his right-wing legislator persona. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, after being caught stepping out on his wife with another man, Goodman sat down with House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger for a meeting. Shortly after, the 33-year-old stepped down from his position for “inappropriate conduct.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We all bring our own struggles and our own trials into public life,” he said in a statement. “That has been true for me, and I sincerely regret that my actions and choices have kept me from serving my constituents and our state in a way that reflects the best ideals of public service. For those whom I have let down, I’m sorry. As I move onto the next chapter of my life. I sincerely ask for privacy for myself, my family, and my friends.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Goodman’s website, which has since been taken down, highlighted commitment, conservative principles, and family values. He also frequently touted “natural [heterosexual] marriage” and Christian views. The former lawmaker’s twitter has since been switched to private and his Facebook has been deleted.

The media outlet retrieved 12 total videos, all worn by the officers that were on the scene when 52-year-old RonaldShields was arrested and charged with felony hit-and-run and cocaine possession. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At the time, officers reported that a small bag of cocaine was found in Shield’s shirt, however, upon the release of the bodycam footage on Thursday, new information has been unveiled to the public. Shields’ lawyer says the video shows an officer picking up the cocaine off the ground and putting it in Shields’ wallet, which was caught on his own bodycam. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, the cameras begin recording 30 seconds before being turned on, but it appears the officer, who has been identified as Officer Gaxiola, had no idea about the device’s design. Which explains why he allegedly turns the camera on after planting the drugs in the suspect’s wallet. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, despite the video, another officer told the judge that he found the cocaine in Shields’ pocket, prompting Shields’ lawyer to argue that the drugs were planted, as allegedly seen in the video, he is reportedly asking for the evidence to be suppressed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In turn, the LAPD released a statement saying, “The LAPD takes all allegations of misconduct seriously and as in all cases, will conduct a thorough investigation to determine whether the alleged actions are supported by reliable evidence.”

Community, Head, and Life: BREAKING NEWS LOUIS' APOLOGY Nov. 10 | Louis C.K. admits to sexual misconduct allegations; offers sincere public apology. Here is C.K.’s statement in full: I want to address the stories told to the New York Times by five women named Abby, Rebecca, Dana, Julia who felt able to name themselves and one who did not. These stories are true. At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my dick without asking first, which is also true. But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your dick isn’t a question. It’s a predicament for them. The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly. I have been remorseful of my actions. And I’ve tried to learn from them. And run from them. Now I’m aware of the extent of the impact of my actions. I learned yesterday the extent to which I left these women who admired me feeling badly about themselves and cautious around other men who would never have put them in that position. I also took advantage of the fact that I was widely admired in my and their community, which disabled them from sharing their story and brought hardship to them when they tried because people who look up to me didn’t want to hear it. I didn’t think that I was doing any of that because my position allowed me not to think about it. There is nothing about this that I forgive myself for. And I have to reconcile it with who I am. Which is nothing compared to the task I left them with. I wish I had reacted to their admiration of me by being a good example to them as a man and given them some guidance as a comedian, including because I admired their work. The hardest regret to live with is what you’ve done to hurt someone else. And I can hardly wrap my head around the scope of hurt I brought on them. I’d be remiss to exclude the hurt that I’ve brought on people who I work with and have worked with who’s professional and personal lives have been impacted by all of this, including projects currently in production: the cast and crew of Better Things, Baskets, The Cops, One Mississippi, and I Love You Daddy.

Although many active citizens come up with excuses to skip the duty, the former president is taking a different route. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "He made it crystal-clear to me through his representative that he would carry out his public duty as a citizen and resident of this community," Cook County Chief Judge Timothy Evans said, according to The Chicago Tribune. “Obviously, we will make certain that he has all the accoutrements that accompany a former president. His safety will be uppermost in our minds.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, this not the first time a former president has been called for jury duty, and actually showed up. Both Bill Clinton and George W. Bush appeared for jury selection after their time in office. However, if chosen, reports say he will not be the first high-profile person to be selected either. Back in 2004, OprahWinfrey sat on a jury for a murder trial. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Obama is scheduled to appear for duty next month in Cook County.
