Judge nixes keeping Kerrey off ballot over residence
OMAHA — A judge has ruled that former U.S. Sen. Bob Kerrey will appear on Nebraska’s Democratic primary ballot in May.
Lancaster County District Judge Steven Burns’ decision came Wednesday, a day after the Nebraska Republican Party filed a legal challenge to try to keep Mr. Kerrey off the ballot.
The state party challenged Secretary of State John Gale’s opinion last week that said Mr. Kerrey could appear on the May 15 primary ballot.
Mr. Gale said in his opinion that he believed Mr. Kerrey had violated a state law that requires candidates to be residents of the county in which they register to vote. However, Mr. Gale said the U.S. Constitution requires only that Senate candidates be a resident of the state they serve by the time they’re elected.
De Niro says he meant no offense with first lady joke
Robert De Niro says he meant no offense when he joked at a presidential fundraiser featuring Michelle Obama that America might not be ready for a white first lady.
Mr. De Niro said in a statement that he was speaking “with satirical jest” at the event Monday night in New York. The actor says his remarks “were not meant to offend or embarrass anyone especially the first lady.”
The joke drew a complaint from Newt Gingrich, who said the racial reference to the Republican candidates’ wives was “inexcusable” and demanded an apology from President Obama.
