Donald Trump vowed Saturday to sue the women who have accused him of sexual misconduct in recent weeks. "Every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign," Trump said during remarks in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. "Total fabrication. The events never happened. Never. All of these liars will be sued after the election is over." In the last two weeks, at least 10 women have come forward accusing Trump of inappropriately touching them. Their allegations came after a 2005 videotape surfaced of Trump bragging about being able to grope women and get away with it. Trump often threatens to file lawsuits without actually doing so.

Floridians, like all Americans, have that private property right already. Homeowners also have the right to install simple rain collectors to water their own plants to help reduce their monthly water bill, and they also have the right to install their own vegetable or herb garden to reduce the amount of their monthly grocery bill. So why are Florida's big electric utility companies spending almost $25 million dollars of our monthly utility fees to establish a homeowner "right" in Florida's Constitution that already exists? Simply put, to finally have the authority to assess homeowners with solar panels on their roof a surcharge for exercising their homeowner "right" to have solar panels! read more
