Cates: Digging up Beggs' work as an attorney in the '90s ahead of next Tuesday's election.
Less than a week before Election Day, local Republicans, including Spokane County GOP Chairwoman Stephanie Cates, are peddling details
of City Councilman Breean Beggs' involvement in a 22-year-old First Amendment case
. Beggs defended a Bellingham bookstore's right to sell a particular magazine that included graphic depictions of rape and torture. Beggs and other attorneys were successful in their argument that the magazine was satire, not porn.
The prosecutor was fined $1.3 million for pursuing the case. Now, local conservatives are accusing Beggs of defending rape culture. (Spokesman-Review, New York Times

An 18-year-old student at the University of Hartford in Connecticut has been expelled and is currently facing criminal charges
for contaminating her roommate's personal items and posting about it on social media. Brianna Brochu posted this paragraph to her Instagram account:

The roommate/victim, Chennel Rowe, posted this video to her Facebook page
when she found out. Brochu is white. Rowe is black. (New York Times
