Overnight Briefing & General Reality Check - Aug 20, 2015
August 20, 2015
Your tax dollars at work:
Some pretty embarrassing revelations after hackers released customer information from the Ashley Madison website, which sets up consenting adults to have extra-marital affairs. Thousands of clients using the site listed e-mail addresses registered to the White House, top federal agencies and military branches.
Over 15-thousand of the e-mail addresses used to register accounts were hosted on government and military servers. Buried in that list are e-mails likely tied to multiple administration agencies including the State Department and Department of Homeland Security, as well as several tied to both the House and Senate.

Now that the names of some of the clients of the Ashley Madison website have been released, thanks to hackers, we have a better idea of who's been cheating on their spouses.
One of them is apparently JOSH DUGGAR, whose credit card using the name JOSHUA J DUGGAR appears on the list with an address which matches the home in Fayetteville, AR, owned by his grandmother. Whoever owned the credit card reportedly paid $986.76 for two different monthly Ashley Madison subscriptions from February of 2013 until May of 2015 --one when Josh lived in Arkansas, and the other when he lived in Washington, DC.
The website Gawker reports that in his Ashley Madison profile, Josh listed a variety of acts that he would like a partner for, including "conventional sex," "experimenting with sex toys," "sharing fantasies" and "bubble bath for 2." He also has a laundry list of qualities that he likes in a woman, including a woman who "has a secret love nest" or a "naughty girl," among others.
Today's police blotter:
Police in India detained and interrogated a talking parrot.
Chandrapur district police say the bird --named HARIYAL-- is accused of screaming profanities at an elderly woman. 85-year-old victim JANABAI SAKHARKAR claims the parrot yells at her whenever she walks near its owner's house. Hariyal must know its rights because it reportedly refused to talk to officers during questioning. No word on whether the bird has obtained a public defender. (Still)
Moral of the story, don't go back to eat at the same restaurant that you just robbed. A man robbed a McDonald's in Cape Coral, Florida. A few days later, he was hungry and went through the drive-thru. Employees recognized him and notified police. They got his license plate which led cops to arrest JOHN A. GAMPA, who was on probation for another robbery. He was charged with burglary and resisting arrest. (Myers)
NICKI MINAJ fans have apparently been using her wax figure at Madame Tussaud's Museum in Las Vegas to take some "inappropriate pictures."
Nicki's figure is posed down on all fours in a pose from her "Anaconda" video, and the management at the wax museum says they've been forced to schedule extra security in order to "protect" the figure from those kind of pictures (HERE and HERE, for example, or a link on my Twitter page-- RB).
