Keith Ellison’s bid to lead the Democratic National Committee got a shot in the arm Friday afternoon, as his chief rival for the spot, former Vermont Gov.

The speed-crazed fools over at Hennessey Performance recently got their hands on a brand-new 2017 Chevy Camaro ZL1. To celebrate the car's presence—with just 26 miles on the odometer—the company's head honcho took the muscle car from zero to 173-miles-per-hour...and pit the new 'Maro against Chevy's flagship sports car, the Corvette Z06.

The proposal, a sign of frustration at slow progress in the six-week campaign against Islamic State in Mosul, was ultimately dismissed by Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi and his generals, military sources told Reuters in interviews. Islamic State militants who have controlled the city since mid-2014 have waged a lethal defense, deploying snipers, mortar fire and 600 suicide car bombers, as well as attacks launched from a network of tunnels beneath residential neighborhoods.

Ten years later, Jammeh mounted a coup with fellow army officers against Dawda Jawara, who had ruled the country since independence, pledging to root out corruption and hold elections.

Papini said. Sherri was branded, her nose was broken, and she had her hair "chopped off." Many believe she was kidnapped by sex traffickers.
