An attorney for Jonathan Majors
has claimed the woman who accused him of assaulting her on Friday night has withdrawn her allegations—and submitted statements to prove it.
“Jonathan Majors is completely innocent and is provably the victim of an altercation with a woman he knows,” attorney Priya Chaudhry said in a statement on Sunday. “We are quickly gathering and presenting evidence to the District Attorney with the expectation that all charges will be dropped imminently. This evidence includes video footage from the vehicle where this episode took place, witness testimony from the driver and others who both saw and heard the episode, and most importantly, two written statements from the woman recanting these allegations. All the evidence proves that Mr. Majors is entirely innocent and did not assault her whatsoever.”
Chaudhry also claimed the incident happened because the victim had an “emotional crisis” that eventually required hospitalization.
The tornado that ripped through the Deep South
on Friday night, razing entire communities and sending semi-trailers flying into neighbors’ homes, killed a father and his baby daughter as the rest of his family landed in a hospital with horrific injuries.
Monroe County Coroner Alan Gurley confirmed 34-year-old Ethan Herndon and his 1-year-old daughter Riley Herndon died at their home on Herndon Lane in the northeastern Mississippi town of Wren.
According to a GoFundMe
set up by the family, Ethan’s wife and Riley’s mom, Elizabeth, suffered multiple injuries including a broken arm, a broken leg, and a dislocated hip. Their eldest child, Brantley, was airlifted to a hospital with several broken bones, a lacerated liver, and a punctured lung. Their middle child, Aubrey, was hospitalized with a broken elbow, a possible broken ankle, and lacerations.

Andrew plans to tell all
is talking to American authors about getting some help to write his autobiography, with sources telling the Mail on Sunday
to expect “Spare 2.0”—a reference to Prince Harry
’s dish-filled tell-all. Andrew apparently wants to “set the record straight” after the fallout of his association with pedophile Jeffrey Epstein
left him with no public royal role and an appalling reputation.
Scheme One originates (where else?) in Texas, where conservative lawmakers introduced a bill last week
that would give massive property tax breaks to straight couples who owned property and had many, many children. H.B. 2889 would give heterosexual couples with four children a 40 percent break on their property taxes, and all the way up to a 100 percent property tax break for families with ten or more children, provided the parents were married.
I’m no tax expert, but it seems like that sort of law, in addition to being homophobic and creepy, would make it so that a theoretical school district containing only families with ten or more children within it would have a property tax base of zero dollars with which to operate its respective public school. Conservatives have made no effort to hide their hatred for public education, but until some pretty seismic shifts in the legal system occur, public schools still must exist. Again, I’m not an accountant, but it seems like a bad idea!
