Convicted pedophile Anthony Weiner has been released from prison, and must now register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
The former congressman and husband to Hillary Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin, is now part of a federal re-entry program in New York. Presumably, he will be free to prey on young girls again.
Nypost.com reports: Weiner has been transferred from Federal Medical Center in Devens, Mass. where he served a bulk of his 21-month sentence for sexting a 15-year-old girl from North Carolina, according to Federal Bureau of Prisons records.
The 54-year-old is now being supervised by the federal Residential Reentry Management, which has a field office in Sunset Park and operates multiples facilities, the records say.
He is either in a halfway house or in home confinement, TMZ reported. It’s not clear when the transfer took place.
Weiner is set to be released from federal custody on May 14, thanks to good conduct behind bars that shaved about three months off his sentence.
He’ll spend three years on supervised release and will have to pay a $10,000 fine as well as register as a sex offender.
The once-rising Democrat flamed out amid a series of sexting scandals that first began in 2011, when he resigned from Congress after admitting to sending an X-rated photo and engaging in inappropriate relationships with women online.
Two years later, his comeback bid to become New York City’s mayor was torpedoed by revelations he sexted with another woman under the pseudonym “Carlos Danger.”
Kamala Harris covered-up a massive pedophilia scandal in the Catholic Church when she was District Attorney for San Fransisco.
According to an investigation by SF Weekly, Harris repeatedly protected files containing details of how the church dealt with pedophile priests, preventing journalists from viewing them.
Sfweekly.com reports: SF Weekly’s attempts to obtain her office’s files on Catholic clergy abuse under the state Public Records Act suggest Harris favors concealment over transparency.
The records at issue may contain answers to a question of great public concern that has consumed international headlines during recent weeks: What did senior Catholic officials know, and what did they do behind the scenes, while priests accused of molesting children were shielded from punishment?
Cardinal William Levada was archbishop of San Francisco until 2005. He is now a top Vatican official and the Holy See’s most prominent defender of Pope Benedict XVI against allegations that the pontiff has failed to adequately deal with pedophile priests. In San Francisco, Levada was known as a key architect of the church’s practice of keeping abuse allegations secret, protecting abusive priests, and punishing church whistleblowers.
Portions of this record came to light in stories by then–SF Weekly staff writer Ron Russell in 2005 and in a May 5 story in The New York Times that recounted elements of Russell’s reporting. By sifting through documents made public as a result of lawsuits, Russell learned that during the 1990s and 2000s, Levada helped keep allegations against pedophile priests shrouded in secrecy. Alleged abusers included Salesian Brother Salvatore Billante, who police alleged had sexual relations with at least 24 children, but charges were dropped after the California Supreme Court overturned a state law extending the statute of limitations for pedophiles. And so the full contents of archdiocese clergy abuse files obtained by prosecutors were never revealed at trial.
Israeli right-wing politicians harshly criticized Channel 13 TV anchorwoman Oshrat Kotler for saying soldiers become “human animals” during their army service in the West Bank during a broadcast on Saturday night.
Kotler was responding to a report on five Israeli soldiers who were recently indicted for beating Palestinian detainees in revenge for the death of two soldiers from their battalion.

BBC accused of ‘betraying every one of us who defended them’ as revelations further question its impartiality
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know the BBC‘s flagship political programme Question Time has came under fire of late. Renewed criticism of the show came after ex-UKIP candidate Billy Mitchell appeared in the audience for the fourth time.
On February 13, Scotland’s pro-independence newspaper the National started a front-page campaign to get answers. But the BBC‘s response has cast doubt over its impartiality:
Tomorrow’s front page: We reveal that Question Time bosses secretly edited Fiona Hyslop’s full response to BBC’s hand-picked Unionist to just SEVEN seconds – despite letting him rant uninterrupted for more than a minute about independence pic.twitter.com/cDdnVts96n

Just seven seconds
Yes, you did read that correctly. The BBC edited SNP MSP Fiona Hyslop’s response to a question about Scottish independence to just seven seconds. The show’s producers made the decision to cut the full response before the show went out.
As reported in the National, Mitchell was given over a minute to rant about his dislike for Scottish independence and the SNP in general. He concluded his comments with, “You’re losers. You need to get voted out and leave Scotland to prosper”. But Hyslop’s response was obviously edited, finishing mid-sentence:
I appreciate your point. A slight exaggeration. We had a white paper, whether you liked it or not, there were 600 pages of it–
The camera then cut to the audience and presenter Fiona Bruce swiftly moved on to the next question.
