  • President Donald Trump got a bit of push back from Congress, including from some Republican members, on Tuesday when he embraced the idea of a government shutdown if a spending deal can't be reached in the coming days. The New York Times reports that Trump said, "I'd love to see a shutdown."
  • The latest frat house to come under fire is at Cornell University, where the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity is on probation for a so-called "pig roast" sex contest. USA Today reports that a university investigation found the fraternity held a contest where new members were encouraged to accumulate points by sleeping with women. If members tied, the winner was chosen by whoever had sex with a woman who weighed the most. The fraternity's suspension comes after multiple reports of misconduct in 2017 leveled against the organization.

  • Rep. Paulette Jordan (D-Plummer) announced early today that she would step down from her seat in the Idaho House to concentrate full-time on her gubernatorial campaign.

    "I cannot fairly serve my constituents and run for governor, therefore I am stepping down from my legislative seat," said Jordan in a prepared statement. "This is necessary to win the Democratic primary and to move toward victory in November. I’m all in for Idaho.”
