    MJ Hegar does not hold back. “I’m an ass kicking, motorcycle-riding, Texas Democrat. That’s who I am!” She says that emphatically, unblinkingly and unapologetically to a constituent at a political meet-and-greet in a suburban Austin, Texas, home.

  • Five Charged with Child Abuse After 11 Emaciated Children Found in Trailer

    The message, forwarded by a detective in another state 1,500 miles away to the Taos County Sheriff’s Office in New Mexico, was to the point: “We are starving and need food and water,” it said in part.

It was enough to trigger a raid Friday […]
