Conrad Murray Guilty In Death Of Michael Jackson
A jury found Michael Jackson's doctor, Conrad Murray, guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the 2009 death of Michael Jackson. The 58-year-old doctor, who is to be sentenced November 29, is facing up to four years in prison. He could also lose his medical license. Sean, joined by attorneys Jay Sekulow and Tamara Holder for reaction, wasn’t surprised. “This wasn’t a big shock to me,” Sean said to Sekulow who agreed. “The jury came back very quickly which is not a good sign for the defense in a case like this and I felt the defense’s case was very weak,” said Sekulow. Holder agreed. “The fact that this doctor walked out of the room [after administering the drugs to Jackson] was so negligent and idiotic that even if he had done this in an operating room he still would have been found guilty.

Gingrich The Comeback Kid?
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich jumped into second place in Iowa, ahead of Mitt Romney, according to a poll released earlier today. An automated poll conducted by We Ask America, found that 18 percent of likely caucus goers would vote for Gingrich if the caucuses were held today. Cain is still in first place with 22 percent, despite weathering a week of sexual harassment allegations. Gingrich edges out Mitt Romney, who is in third at 15 percent. “The pace which we’re going to go through starting next year is going to be a whirlwind to say the least. I never really expected Romney to win Iowa, but it depends where his showing really is. Is he close to the top or third or fourth? If he does poorly in Iowa it puts a lot of pressure on him to do well just one week later in New Hampshire,” Sean said discussing the new poll. You can view the poll by clicking here.
