The Cher Show review – Broadway musical is a mixed bag of pop excess

Tuesday 05:10 GMT

A jukebox ode to the megastar contains some dazzling numbers but suffers from some clumsy storytelling. At The Cher Show, there are three Chers onstage and lots more in the audience.

The Cher Show, like last year’s Donna Summer musical, requires three actors (and the occasional dancer) to play one jukebox queen. The exuberant, occasionally tacky jukebox musical that tells her life story is more faltering.

The fight over a Georgia nuclear plant shows we need to ban dark money

Tuesday 14:30 GMT

There are four key players in this drama: the Southern Company, which owns Georgia Power; a political committee called “Georgians for a Better Future”; a lobbying group called Nuclear Matters; and a powerful trade group called the Nuclear Energy Institute. Spending these unprecedented sums in support of the incumbent Republican commissioner, Chuck Eaton, is “Georgians for a Brighter Future”, established just weeks ago for the specific purpose of intervention in our PSC runoff, in which Eaton faces a vigorous challenge from the Democratic rising star Lindy Miller.

College Football Playoff: Alabama vs. Oklahoma, Clemson vs. Notre Dame

Tuesday 14:30 GMT

Oklahoma earned the fourth spot in the college football playoff on Sunday, edging Georgia and Ohio State for the right to face Alabama in the semifinals.

With Alabama, Clemson and Notre Dame all undefeated, there was little question as to which teams would earn the top three playoff spots. But the conference championships on Saturday left plenty of room for debate over which team the selection committee should pick fourth.

Georgia doesn't need another voter suppressor running its elections

Tuesday 15:25 GMT

What the state needs is not more of the voter suppression that put a truly compromised candidate in the White House in 2016 or that allowed more than 1 million Georgians to be purged from the voter rolls and tens of thousands of registrations held in electoral limbo because of a typo, a hyphen, or accent mark.

Raising the unproven specter of undocumented immigrants stealing elections, which was the same scaremongering imagery Kemp floated during the gubernatorial campaign, Raffensperger promises to “strengthen voter ID” in Georgia so “that only legal American citizens should vote”.

Republican declares win in Georgia elections chief race, Democrat...

Thursday 06:05 GMT

(Reuters) - Republican Brad Raffensperger appeared poised to become Georgia’s new elections chief but his Democratic opponent John Barrow declined to concede the race early on Wednesday, saying that every vote has not yet been counted.

A victory for Raffensperger would mean he takes office after critics accused Georgia Republicans this fall of suppressing minority voting rights. Raffensperger declared victory after winning more than 50 percent of the vote, with more than 2,000 of Georgia’s 2,634 precincts reporting, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.. “I’m very humbled and very honored to have won this race tonight,” Raffensperger said, the AJC reported on Twitter.

Republican Brad Raffensperger wins runoff election for Georgia secretary of state

Thursday 10:50 GMT

Republican Brad Raffensperger won a runoff election to become Georgia's next secretary of state, taking over the office at the center of a debate over voter access and election security in the Southern state.

Raffensperger finished the three-way general election race ahead of Barrow, but just shy of the 50 percent of the vote needed to avoid a runoff. Issues that dogged Kemp in the general election — Georgia's strict "exact match" policy for confirming voters' identities and reports that the state's aging electronic voting system was vulnerable to hackers — became the focus of the race to succeed him.

John Kelly is just the latest victim of Trump's dumpster fire of calamities

Today 06:04 GMT

It came to pass that John Kelly found himself dumped on the Trump sidewalk of history, a throwaway tidbit of news in a dumpster fire of calamities.

Unlike Blumenthal and Comey, Trump has “no plans to humiliate” his chief of staff, according to Trump officials who obviously have no recollection of the many months of Trump’s open musings about firing Kelly. In any case, Kelly – like so many others – has already humiliated himself by enabling an incompetent and autocratic president while pretending to restrain him.

With Nick Ayers out of the running, Trump mulls other names for chief of staff

Today 06:04 GMT

Nick Ayers, who had been considered the favorite to take over as White House chief of staff, will not be taking the job after failing to reach an agreement with President Trump, multiple senior White House officials tell CBS News — forcing Mr. Trump to look at other possible names.

The need for a new chief of staff arose after Mr. Trump abruptly announced Saturday that current chief of staff John Kelly will be leaving the administration "at the end of the year," a move he made without mentioning it once at a dinner with senior staff the night before, according to a senior administration official.
