New Hampshire Weekly

BY Laura A. Kiernan

Enough already. It's finally time to end Campaign 2000, which we think began somewhere back in 1996, at least for some who craved the presidency. Here at home, could there be a soul left who hasn't heard that Governor Jeanne Shaheen thinks former US senator Gordon Humphrey is an extremist, and that Humphrey thinks Shaheen is a secret income taxer? They have spent millions between them, bombarded us with television ads and radio zingers and been to who knows how many debates, during which they have proved to be masters of staying on message (Humphrey: You have no plan! Shaheen: Your numbers don't add up! Humphrey: Stop smearing me! Shaheen: You said what you said!).

New Hampshire Weekly

BY Laura Kiernan

Republican gubernatorial candidate Gordon Humphrey was on the ropes last week, falling in the polls and pounded by relentless radio and television ads attacking his record in the US Senate. Vowing to fight back, Humphrey blamed his slide on a "cynical, unprincipled, callous smear campaign against me" by his Democratic opponent, Governor Jeanne Shaheen, saying ". . . it's shocking, it's reprehensible, it's ugly, it's disgusting, Governor Shaheen owes us all an apology."

Al Gore

BY Jodi Enda

WASHINGTON The vice president of the United States is leaning into his desk aboard Air Force Two, licking the sticky red chicken-wing sauce off his fingertips, one digit at a time. Just like a regular guy. In this unguarded moment, he does not look like a man who, for the past eight years, has been in charge of U.S. policy on a number of fronts. But he was. When it came to science, technology and, most of all, the environment, Gore was much more than the man behind The Man. He was dominant.

Prospect of Frankel As House Speaker Might Rally GOP

BY George Bennett

State Rep. Lois Frankel, D-West Palm Beach, has the name recognition, money and party affiliation to make her the prohibitive favorite in heavily Democratic state House District 85 against first-time Republican candidate Cheryl Carpenter. But Frankel is not an ordinary incumbent in an ordinary race. The liberal lawmaker is a partisan lightning rod who's in line to be Democratic leader in the House next year - the kind of figure who just might inspire Florida's Republican Party or conservative groups to get involved in the race.

Panel Upholds Anti-Resnick Ad

BY Alan Johnson and James Bradshaw

A TV ad bashing Ohio Supreme Court Justice Alice Robie Resnick is legal because it is educational -- not political -- an Ohio Elections Commission panel ruled yesterday. Thus, although the ad might be "treacherous,'' it is protected by the First Amendment guarantee of free speech. Because the ad is educational, the group bankrolling it can legally obtain unlimited amounts of contributions, including cash from corporations, and never divulge where the money is coming from or how it's spent.

Congress Uses the Surplus to Expand the IRS--What's Up With That?

It wasn't enough that the IRS has four times as many employees as the FBI and U.S. Marshals combined, Congress has now agreed to expand the size of the IRS by 9.36 percent over last year’s budget – that is $770 million more than the $8.22 billion budgeted in FY 2000. Congress, in their second conference report, approved a budget of $8.99 billion for FY 2001. This comes on the heels of a statement by President Clinton that he would not approve the first conference report compromise budget of $8.64 billion because it was “deeply inadequate.”

Gore's Environmental Record: What Does the Motor City Think?

Canddiates Attacked for Links to Lawyers

BY James Bradshaw

Another "education'' committee has joined the mulligan stew of groups attempting to influence this year's Ohio Supreme Court races. Ohio Citizens for a Sound Economy, the Buckeye chapter of a national organization that promotes free- market economics and reduced government, released a statement yesterday with the headline, "Some Ohio Supreme Court candidates in the pockets of trial lawyers.''

Heat Turning Up On Home Rule Debate

BY Tom Fahey

CONCORD -- The volume picked up yesterday in the argument over the "home rule " amendment voters face Nov. 7. The measure would give towns and cities the power to make decisions that the state Constitution or state laws do not discuss.
