The local U.S. Attorney's Office has launched a federal prison re-entry program aimed at helping people with felony convictions reclaim their lives.
Preet Bharara, the U.S. prosecutor who last week indicted anti-Obama filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza on campaign finance charges, is the snapping jaws of Attorney General Eric H. Holder's junkyard attack dog and the velvet fixer of President Obama’s thorniest political problems.
President Obama on Thursday commuted prison sentences for eight people convicted of crack cocaine offenses, including a cousin of Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, one of the president's staunchest supporters.
With less than two weeks before President Obama's new health-care law kicks in, the White House launched an anti-fraud effort Wednesday to warn consumers that scam artists could try to steal their personal financial and health records.

Rep. Steve Stockman is revisiting a troublesome matter that recently riveted public attention, namely, the IRS targeting of conservative groups.

House Armed Services Chairman Ike Skelton on Friday said the Obama administration may be making a big mistake by trying the men accused of planning the Sept. 11 attack in U.S. criminal courts, becoming the highest-ranking Democrat to challenge the decision announced last week by Attorney General Eric H. Holder.
"No one has access to a person's private medical records, and they shouldn't be asking for that information," he said. "If they are asking for that information, then consumers … can understand that's the wrong place to go."
Mr. Holder last week announced that five men accused of planning the Sept. 11 attacks, including to al Qaeda leader Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, would be transferred from the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to New York to stand trial.
