Statue of Virgin Mary Vandalized in Santa Monica

A prominent statue of the Virgin Mary was vandalized early Friday morning in Santa Monica, California. The statue, which stands at the corner of 7th Street and California Avenue, was tagged with yellow graffiti between the hours of 1:00 and 6:00 a.m. Church employees worked to clean the paint off the statue after discovering it early Friday morning. A source present suggested that the church would catch the culprit or culprits due to the presence of surveillance cameras. It is not clear what the motive of the vandalism was, or whether it was a reaction to an ongoing scandal involving a decades-long cover-up of sexual abuse within the priesthood in Pennsylvania. The statue has been vandalized before, in 2009. The Santa Monica Daily Press reported at the time: Santa Monica Police are investigating an alleged hate crime after officials with St. Monica Catholic Church discovered a statue of the Virgin Mary beheaded shortly before Easter services commenced. A priest found the 55-year-old marble statue, which stands on the corner of Seventh Street and California Avenue, decapitated around 5:45 a.m. on Sunday, spotting the head on the ground just a few feet away. The top of the statue was covered with a white

MSNBC’s Geist to Dem Sen Baldwin: ‘Looks Pretty Nakedly Political’ to Oppose Kavanaugh Before Meeting Him

During a Friday interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” guest host Willie Geist pressed Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) about her decision to not support President Trump SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh before meeting with him, telling her it “looks pretty nakedly political.” “Shouldn’t you wait to get all the documents and shouldn’t you wait to get through the hearings before you declare that you won’t support his nomination, because that kind of thing, and it’s not just you, by the way, looks pretty nakedly political to a lot of people,” said Geist. Baldwin responded by saying the people of Wisconsin want “a fair, independent, impartial justice,” which she suggested does not describe Kavanaugh. “We have issues of whether we’re going to be able to protect clean water and clean air, and whether the next Supreme Court justice is going to be in the pocket of corporate special interests or fighting for consumers and workers,” stated Baldwin. “So, I think Wisconsinites look at this record, the record that has been publicly disclosed already — there’s lots of documents, I assure you — and say this is not the fair, impartial jurist that we want.” Geist asked, “But do you think he deserves a chance to answer
