A Liberal MP was caught wearing his birthday suit in the virtual House of Commons. William Amos, who has represented the Quebec riding of Pontiac since 2015, appeared on the screens of his fellow members of Parliament completely naked Wednesday. However, it was “an unfortunate error,” Amos told Global News later in the day. “My video was accidentally turned on as I was changing into my work clothes after going for a jog. I sincerely apologize to my colleagues in the House of Commons for this unintentional distraction. Obviously, it was an honest mistake and it won’t happen again,” Amos said.

New Jersey’s Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy is reportedly looking to give out stimulus payments to undocumented immigrants in his state. Murphy is considering executive action to provide about $40 million worth of one-time stimulus funding to illegal immigrants, five people familiar with the matter told Politico. The policy would be funded through remaining CARES Act dollars. A spokesperson for Murphy said in a statement to FOX Business that the office had “nothing to add” at this time.
Jennifer and Barry Weisselberg’s divorce was a contentious battle, but few realized during the 2017 and 2018 proceedings that it would end up at the center of one of the most high-profile criminal investigations in history — the Manhattan District Attorney’s probe into Donald Trump. Barry is a Trump Organization employee and his father, Allen, is the company’s chief financial officer. Jennifer says the divorce proceedings left her with “boxes and boxes” of files that prosecutors are interested in. To help sort through the financial documents, which go back decades, Jennifer said she hired an attorney who previously prosecuted white collar and organized crime cases for the Manhattan DA and a former criminal investigator for the IRS.

A new California Senate bill aims to change the rules of future recall petitions in the state as Gov. Gavin Newsom faces a potential ousting. S.B. 663 would give recall subjects like Newsom access to the names and information of those who sign petitions calling for their removal from office, though the bill would not impact the current recall against the governor. It would also extend the time period by which voters can remove their names from recall petitions to 45 days after the petition is filed; current law states that voters can only remove names one day prior to filing.
MINNEAPOLIS — A medical expert who testified in defense of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, saying he believed that George Floyd’s death was the result of heart disease, agreed with a prosecutor on Wednesday that Floyd should have been given immediate first aid. Dr. David Fowler, who was Maryland’s chief medical examiner until his retirement in 2019, also told the jury he believed exhaust fumes from the police car next to which Chauvin pinned Floyd to the road may also have contributed to Floyd’s death in May 2020.
