Kentucky lawmaker who compared Barack and Michelle Obama to monkeys kills himself after sexual assault allegations...left suicide note on FB

A Republican state lawmaker in Kentucky who refused to resign following allegations that he sexually assaulted a teenage girl in the basement of his home killed himself on Wednesday night.

Dan Johnson shot himself on a bridge in Mount Washington, Kentucky, the Bullitt County sheriff, Donnie Tinnell, said. His body was found near a bridge on Greenwell Ford Road in Mount Washington, in a spot called the River Bottoms. He had a single gunshot wound to his head. A gun was recovered at the scene.
Johnson, 57, was elected to the state legislature in 2016. Prior to the election, racist Facebook posts he made came to light. One compared Barack and Michelle Obama to monkeys. Republican leaders urged him to drop out of the race because of this but he refused and eventually won.  
Johnson was the pastor of Heart of Fire church in Louisville and he sponsored a number of bills having to do with religious liberty and teaching the Bible in public schools. But he was mostly out of the spotlight until Monday, when the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting published an account from a woman saying Johnson sexually assaulted her in the basement of his home in 2013. The woman told police about the incident at the time and they investigated but closed the case and did not file charges. 
On Tuesday, Johnson held a news conference in the pulpit of his church, which he began by leading friends and family in singing a portion of the Christmas carol O Come All Ye Faithful. He said the allegations against him were "totally false" and that they were part of a nationwide strategy of defeating conservative Republicans. He gave an example of the former Republican US Senate candidate Roy Moore, who faces accusations of sexual misconduct from multiple women.
Shortly before 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Johnson posted a troubling message on his Facebook page. In the post, he asked people to care for his wife. He wrote that post-traumatic stress disorder "is a sickness that will take my life, I cannot handle it any longer. It has won this life, BUT HEAVEN IS MY HOME."

Officials discovered Johnson’s body after they were made aware of the Facebook post and they tracked Johnson’s phone to his location.The post appears to have been removed now.

Photo: Driving instructor rapes, strangles corps member to death in Ogun

The Ogun state police command has arrested 29-year-old driving instructor, Festus Udo, pictured above, for raping and strangling a female youth corps member, 23 year old Modupe Taiyese, at Abule Ayo in Mawuko, Odeda local government area of the state.

Parading the suspect before newsmen at the scene of the incident yesterday, the state commissioner of Police, Ahmed Ilyasu, said the suspect was a driving instructor‎ with Lizzy Driving School, Abeokuta, where the victim registered to learn driving.
Udo had lured Modupe into the bushes with the promise of getting her a driving permit while teaching her how to drive. 
Trouble started when Modupe did not return to the lodge where herself and other corps members reside. A case of a missing p[erson was filed by the coordinator of the NYSC in the state, John Okon.
'We went for a powerful, technical screening of fact left behind by the last person she made contact with, who is the suspect. Technically the information led to one person by name Festus Udoh, an indigene of Oromi from Edo state, who was teaching this innocent deceased corper, Taiyese Modupe, how to drive. We were able to uncover this nefarious act and he led us to this place and confessed. The man tactically and deceitfully convinced her on Saturday evening that her driving permit is ready. She decided to answer to his call and he cleverly and deceitfully apprehended this lady and brought her down to this forest where he had a forceful, illegal and unlawful carnal knowledge of her and thereafter strangled her to death. The passport photographs of the suspect were found at the scene of the incident which is a remarkable scene of crime evidence,” he said.
Speaking to newsmen, the suspect said 
“After I took her to this place, I told her that I wanted to have sex with her, she said no, but I dragged her into the bush and had sex with her. After having sex with her, she said she will tell her family, that was when I tore her cloth and used it to strangle her neck, as she was gasping, I now ran away,” he said
He will be charged to court soon.

"I was very happy. I wanted him to talk. 2face is a very good, nice and simple guy. I was on tour with 2face, Blackface, Plantashun Boiz, the remedies, and I saw what Blackface did to 2face. When I came back to Lagos, I went solo and did a song called Wakka wiki MC. At the end of the song, I said 2face is the Plantashun, the rest are the Boiz. Forget about what Blackface has done. God has belssed you today, your responsibility is to bless Blackface.
Blackface lost his daughter, his wife divorced him, they sent him out of the house. He was living in Jungle. Even if you don't know remember am at all, he wrote 'African Queen'. Guy, you dey craze.
Because of Blackface, I singehandely took you to Kenny Ogungbe (Baba Keke). I took you to him to sign you up. If I was a greedy person, I would take percentage from you. You are a fool. Grow up nigga. I'm okay and doing well."

Donald Trump will send nearly 60,000 Haitians living in US back to poorest country in the Americas

Donald Trump is sending nearly 60,000 back to Haiti even though it remains one of the poorest countries in the world.
A huge population of Haitians live in the US, mainly in Florida and New York.
Thousands who arrived after the devastating earthquake in 2010 were given a special temporary residency status.
The programme was introduced by the US government in the 1990s to avoid sending large numbers of people back to wars or areas of natural disaster.
But earlier this year, then-secretary of Homeland Security John F. Kelly, said the situation in Haiti had 'improved' sufficiently that they may lose their protected status.

Theresa May faces Tory backlash over plans to pay up to £40bn in Brexit divorce bill

Theresa May faced a backlash from Tory MPs tonight over plans to pay up to £40billion in a Brexit divorce bill.
A host of senior Conservatives blasted plans to stump up a “ransom” to Brussels after a crunch private meeting of her Brexit 'War Cabinet'.
Mrs May triggered mounting opposition to a hefty divorce bill, amid claims she is set to offer another £20billion on top of what she has already signalled she is willing to pay.
Voters would “go bananas” if the UK forked out £40billion, warned former minister Robert Halfon.
He told the BBC: “If we start saying that we’re going to give £40 to £50 billion to the EU, I think the public will go bananas, absolutely spare.
“I voted Remain because I believe in alliances of democracies in an uncertain world.
“But we voted to leave, the public want to leave, and I cannot believe that the public would accept such a huge amount when we need money for our schools, our hospitals, our housing, and many other things.
“So I think that is going to be very difficult if it is going to be that sum.”
Fellow Tory Nigel Evans said the Government cannot afford to “play Santa Claus”.
He said: “Yes we will have obligations but we’re not going to pay ransom money simply to leave the European Union.”
Cash saved by leaving should be “spent on British nurses not on Brussels bureaucrats”, he added.
Backbencher Jacob Rees-Mogg tweeted: “Now is not the time to weaken.”
Following the crunch Cabinet committee meeting, a Downing Street source said tonight: “It remains our position that nothing’s agreed until everything’s agreed in negotiations with the EU.
“As the Prime Minister said this morning, the UK and the EU should step forward together.”
The row unfolded as EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier said his priority was to “settle the accounts accurately” before switching to trade talks.
He warned Britain will be stripped of the benefits of the single market and banks will lose key arrangements allowing them to operate in the bloc because of Brexit.
Brussels wants to offer the UK its “most ambitious free trade agreement”, he told a conference.
But there was no question of Britain “cherry picking” bits of the single market it wanted to keep.
Mocking Britain’s attitude to talks, he said “the UK knows the rules” because it helped draw them up.
Principles of the market were “non-negotiable”, he insisted.
Mr Barnier added: “We take note of the UK decision to end free movement of people.
“This means, clearly, that the UK will lose the benefits of the single market. This is a legal reality.”
Meanwhile Whitehall officials were tonight accused of failing to plan for Brexit.
Chiefs from the Home Office, UK Border Force, HM Revenue and Customs, the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs were giving evidence to the Commons Public Accounts Committee on the potential impact of quitting the EU.
Conservative backbencher Heidi Allen told them: “I don’t hear any vim and vigour from any of you.
“It feels to me like the world’s not going to change at all.
“I’m not hearing from a single one of you any dynamic response to what extra stuff you’re doing to prepare for the various scenarios there might be.
“Everything I’m hearing is, ‘Oh it’s all just going to be the same and we don’t expect anything to change’.”
The officials rejected the accusation.
