Accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein was found injured in his cell in a federal jail in lower Manhattan, NBC News reported Wednesday night.

Epstein, a wealthy financier who was arrested in early July on federal charges, was on the floor of his cell in a fetal position when he was discovered, sources told NBC. He was semi-conscious and had marks on his neck when he was found.

Epstein may have tried to hang himself, according to sources who spoke with WNBC-TV.

But another source said Epstein’s injuries were not serious, and raised the possibility that he may have used the incident to obtain a transfer from the jail.

A fourth source who spoke with NBC said that officials have not ruled out the chance that Epstein was assaulted in the Metropolitan Correctional Center.

He set it up to get moved to a cushier facility.

Sociopathic narcissists don't commit suicide, but they are constant schemers.

Very long investigative piece into Al Franken.

It's a good read. Hannity. Literally every accusation against Franken lacks substantiation. Gillibrand's railroading Franken out of the Senate without any kind of due process, which now means she's a pariah among Democrat donors and struggles with raising money for her hopeless campaign. Franken as clumsy and physically awkward to the point he will fall out of a chair if wearing a backpack and end up pinned to the ground like a helpless turtle, which coupled with him being a hugger led to weird moments. Lots in there. Basically: Franken didn't deserve the #metoo treatment.

Speaking of long reads https://reason.com/2019/08/23/im-radioactive/


I dunno, man. It’s Reason, so there’s that but seems crazy that these encounters became a thing.

Interesting reporting on the last two episodes of NYT The Daily podcast regarding Gloria Allred, her daughter and Weinstein. Her daughter put together an absolutely disgusting plan as a pitch to work in defense for Weinstein--who, coincidentally, was making a movie of her book.

Worth a listen. Explores other aspects of sexual harassment reporting/prosecution/settling as well.
