NLRB member resigns
A member of the National Labor Relations Board accused of leaking inside information has resigned, the agency announced Sunday. Terence Flynn had been under pressure to leave since March, when the board’s inspector general found that he committed ethics violations by improperly revealing confidential details on the status of cases. Flynn, a Republican, shared the information with two former board members, including a one-time labor adviser to presidential hopeful Mitt Romney’s campaign. That adviser, Peter Schaumber, left the Romney campaign in December, around the time the investigation into Flynn began.
Crowds gathered along San Francisco’s waterfront Sunday, while San Francisco Bay was crowded with pleasure boats, tug boats and other vessels as the city celebrated the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge. Since it opened in 1937, more than two-billion vehicles have crossed the 1.7-mile bridge named after the Golden Gate Strait, the entrance of water to San Francisco Bay from the Pacific Ocean, and championed by engineer Joseph Strauss in the 1920s.
Naked assailant killed
A man was shot to death by Miami police, and another man was critically injured when his face was half eaten by the naked assailant, police said. The horror began about 2 p.m. Saturday, when gunshots were heard on a causeway off-ramp. A roadside-assistance truck driver saw a naked man chewing on another man’s face and shouted on his loudspeaker for him to back away. A woman also saw the incident and flagged down a police officer. The officer, who has not been identified, approached and, seeing what was happening, ordered the naked man to back away. When he continued the assault, the officer shot him, police said. The attacker did not stop after being shot and the officer continued to shoot, killing him. The other man was taken to the hospital with critical injuries, according to police. Names were not released.
