Under-reported Stories Catch-up (102818)

Before getting to these stories — Please pray for the victims of the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre and their families.

Unltess I find time this afternoon, which is doubtful, I’m going to have to limit this post to two items today.

Here’s today’s roundup of stories from earlier this month which haven’t gotten the attention they deserve, all of which should be considered relevant to voters’ decisions as to which candidates — and which party’s candidates — they should support at the polls during this election cycle:

Former Atlanta Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran “was fired (in 2015) for writing about his faith on his own time.” Last week, ” the City of Atlanta agreed to pay $1.2 million in a settlement, recognizing that Chief Cochran had suffered unconstitutional harm.” More here.

Operation Choke Point updateThis Obama-era scandal got very little attention, but now “… unsealed documents show Obama administration bureaucrats using bias and threatening language to bully regulators into choking off payday lenders from the banking system.” Payday lenders may be unsavory, but the way to deal with the industry is through legislation and regulation which adhers to the text of the legislation. Choke Point targets included gun makers and other legal businesses.
