    Atlanta’s Spelman College May Consider Admitting Transgender Students

    Spelman College’s president is convening a task force to provide recommendations on whether the all-women’s, historically black college will admit transgender students.

    President Mary Schmidt Campbell included the information in a welcome back letter to the campus community on Thursday and posted on the private school’s website.

    Spelman is the latest prestigious women’s college to consider admitting transgender students. Other institutions, including Barnard College in New York City and the other members of The Seven Sisters association of historical woman’s institutions in the northeast have already enacted policies admitting those students.

    Jerry Sandusky Denies Child Molestation Charges in Appeals Hearing

    Jerry Sandusky took the stand Friday to forcefully deny the child molestation charges he was convicted of four years ago and say it wasn’t his idea to waive his right to testify during his trial.

    The former Penn State assistant football coach testified for an hour during an appeals hearing in which he’s hoping to have his 45-count conviction thrown out or get a new trial. The 72-year-old argued during a hearing in the courthouse near State College that he wasn’t properly represented by his legal team. The hearing is scheduled to continue Aug. 22 and Aug. 23.

    Brian Carn Mimic: Melania Trump’s Alleged Plagiarized Speech from Michelle Obama is blamed on Clinton Camp

    Donald Trump’s presidential campaign doesn’t plan to fire anybody or to take disciplinary action over the controversy surrounding Melania Trump’s plagiarism of Michelle Obama, CNN learned Tuesday.

    Aides to the presumptive Republican nominee are scrambling to move past the imbroglio after a passage in Melania Trump’s speech Monday night, which headlined the Republican National Convention’s opening night, closely mirrored a portion of Michelle Obama’s address to the Democratic National Convention in 2008.

     It’s set off infighting and finger-pointing within Trump’s campaign, and two sources told CNN that Donald Trump himself is furious about it.
    Trump’s aides chalked the controversy up to media bias and blamed Hillary Clinton’s campaign — even though the apparent plagiarism was discovered by an independent journalist and had gone viral before Clinton’s allies and Democrats even weighed in.
