Inside Politics: Medical marijuana battle journeys to Arkansas
In mid-August, FBI agents arrested an Israeli businessman who had helped Mr. Grimm raise hundreds of thousands of dollars from the rabbi’s followers.
The FBI also has been investigating claims that other followers made illegal contributions to Mr. Grimm. FBI agents have recently been requesting records and interviewing people who were on the campaign staff.
Mr. Grimm, himself a former FBI agent, has acknowledged raising a lot of money from the rabbi’s supporters but denied any knowledge of improprieties. He says he followed fundraising rules.
Ivy League class requires convention attendance
PHILADELPHIA — A communications class at the University of Pennsylvania has an unusual requirement: Students must attend the Republican or Democratic national convention.
The course called “Campaigns, Debates and Conventions” is taught only once every four years by David Eisenhower, the grandson of former President Dwight Eisenhower.
It’s co-taught by Marjorie Margolies, an ex-congresswoman who happens to be Chelsea Clinton’s mother-in-law.
Mr. Eisenhower says attending a convention is an unforgettable experience that will stay with students their whole lives.
After the conventions, students return to the Ivy League university in Philadelphia for a semester of lectures, readings and research papers. They’ll also study the presidential debates.
The course ends just after Election Day on Nov. 6.
