Prosecutors laid it out in court Sunday: One woman’s night out turned into a nightmare. She found him - a guy she met at a bar - in her bed the morning after a boozy night out. The 22-year-old Lincoln Park woman, with the help of her roommate, kicked him out and went to a hospital to have a rape kit performed. Still shaken, she avoided her bed and slept on a couch that night with a male friend. At 5 a.m., she woke up to see the man she met at the bar standing over her. He then put a pillow on her face and put all his weight on top of it. Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Nancee Hofheimer said she was able to break free and scream, at which point her male friend woke up and chased the man

A Republican legislator in Minnesota refuses to meet with a group of students from her district because they’re Democrats. Rep.

He responded with, “I love you. I’ll bring home pizza for dinner.” Thirty minutes later: “Actually, I can’t be in a relationship anymore. I need to experience living on my own for a while. We aren’t getting back together.” He then blocked my number and signed our shared home over to me in full. I sold quickly as I can’t afford the mortgage on my own, and I have not found another place to live yet. I have a 7-year-old son, and my ex has two sons.

Officials say a woman was mauled to death by her two dogs while taking them out for a walk in Goochland County, Virginia, but a local veterinarian says there are still many questions to be answered.

He has made a show of criticizing Trump’s agenda, and he was the only Republican to vote against the Senate version of the tax bill, citing deficit concerns. Independent analysis shows the bill would increase the deficit by about $1.5 trillion over 10 years.
