Montana health officer says he was forced to resign after being blamed for death after denying Iverm

Physician's assistant Nick Lawyer says that he was forced to resign from his position as the Sanders County health official after a man blamed him for his wife's death, revealed CBS News reporter David Begnaud.

According to Lawyer, the man is claiming that his wife was denied Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine and antibodies before she died from COVID-19.

Speaking to the county commissioners, the local man accused the commissioners of having their "strings" pulled by someone more powerful.

"Look around you," the man said to the commissioner meeting. "These people and God will be the ones judging you. You should thank God that we live in a Republic because if we lived in a Democracy, you would be pulled out of here and run up the flagpole. I have too much respect and love of country for that to happen. Commissioners Cox and Magera, there is still time for you to redeem yourselves. You can do the right thing for once in your lives and discharge this petty tyrant. His rules of protocol just cost my wife her life. It is personal now. Had she been given the right kind of medicine that has been proven to work like Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine, or the anti-body serum, she would be alive and well today. I had to watch her die slowly and in agony. You and your protocols killed her just as surely as you had shot her in the head."

Boston Mayor's Race Narrows to a Progressive Versus a Moderate

OSTON — Michelle Wu, an Asian American progressive who has built a campaign around climate change and housing policy, sailed to a first-place finish in Boston’s preliminary mayoral election on Tuesday, winning 33 percent of the vote in a city that for nearly 200 years has elected only white men.

As a front-runner, Ms. Wu, 36, marks a striking departure for this city, whose politics have long turned on neighborhoods and ethnic rivalries.

The daughter of Taiwanese immigrants, she is not originally from Boston and has built an ardent following as a city councilor by proposing sweeping structural changes, like making the city’s public transportation free, restoring a form of rent control, and introducing the country’s first city-level Green New Deal.

Because of difficulties counting mail-in and drop-box ballots, the vote count moved slowly through the night, with many results being tallied by hand, and full unofficial results were not released until 10 a.m. Wednesday.

Ms. Wu, who like all of the top candidates in the contest is a Democrat, will face off in November against the second-place finisher, Annissa Essaibi George, who won 22.5 percent of the vote. Raised in Boston’s Dorchester neighborhood by immigrant parents of Tunisian and Polish ancestry, Ms. Essaibi George has positioned herself as a moderate, winning endorsements from traditional power centers like the firefighters’ union and a former police commissioner.


Germany's Conservatives Face Possible Election Rout

“This is Germany’s first general election without Angela Merkel running for chancellor since 2002. For her conservative bloc, it is shaping up as a debacle,” the Wall Street Journal reports.

“A gaffe-prone new candidate, the popular chancellor’s almost complete absence from the campaign, and voter fatigue after 16 years of conservative rule could converge to deliver the bloc’s worst national electoral result ever, according to pollsters and analysts.”

“Less than two weeks before election day, opinion polls show Ms. Merkel’s group, an alliance of conservative parties known collectively as the Union, with 20% of the vote, down 15 points since January and some five points behind its center-left Social Democratic rival.”


Restaurant hostess attacked after asking diners for proof of vaccination

Three people were arrested for allegedly assaulting a New York City restaurant hostess on Thursday after she asked a group of diners visiting from Texas to show proof they had been vaccinated before seating them.

Cellphone footage obtained by NBC New York shows a brawl involving several people outside Carmine's Italian restaurant on the Upper West Side. Staff and bystanders intervened to break up the melee after it broke out around 5 p.m. ET, the station added.
The hostess, who has not been identified, was repeatedly punched and her necklace broken, police said.

One unspecified patient was taken to the Mount Sinai Hospital, the New York City Fire Department said, without stating their condition.

The three suspects, whose ages are 21, 44 and 49, were taken to NYPD's nearby 24th precinct station house, police said.
