The 56-year-old former politician, who has steadfastly denied the allegation, was apparently at the Plaza Hotel in Manhattan alongside the woman — who claims she is his girlfriend — when the alleged assault happened.

The woman claims Spitzer choked her when a verbal argument turned into a physical altercation, and the New York Police Department released a statement on Sunday about their investigation of the incident:

This means the 50-year-old's criminal record is officially wiped clean!

In case you didn't know, the thespian was repeatedly arrested in the 90s for drug-related crimes. He served a total of two years and eight months in jail, and completed his parole in 2002.

In October, the New York native received an order from a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge, who believes he has "lived an honest and upright life, exhibited good moral character, and conducted himself as a law-abiding citizen."

The pardon reads:

"By completion of his sentence and good conduct in the community of his residence since his release, Robert John Downey, Jr. has paid his debt to society and earned a full and unconditional pardon."

Most of the people who were forgiven had minor drug offenses that are no longer felonies under California law.

Congratulations to RDJ!

Donald Trump strikes again!

It seems as though the presidential candidate didn't think he burned enough bridges after his comments about Mexican immigrants sparked tons of outrage. On Saturday, the former Apprentice host called out a revered member of the Republican Party.

The Donald was speaking in front of a bunch of religious conservatives at the annual Family Leadership Summit, when he was pressed about his recent description of Senator John McCain as "a dummy."

Moderator Frank Luntz described the 2008 presidential nominee as "a war hero." McCain's plane was shot down while serving in Vietnam, and he spent over five years as a prisoner of war. But Trump thought of it this way:

South Carolina Lawmakers Officially Ban The Confederate Flag At The Capitol!

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikHopeControversy

no title

This flag won't be flying for too much longer!

Earlier this week, it was reported that South Carolina's state senate voted to remove the Confederate flag from the state Capitol grounds.

On Thursday, the House approved the historic Senate bill in a 93-27 vote! The bill will now head to Republican Governor Nikki Haley to sign into law.

We don't know the exact timing of the flag removal, but it could come down as early as Friday!

The proposal to remove the flag was a result of last month's racially-charged shootings at Charleston's Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, where nine black people were killed.

While supporters of the flag associate it with Southern pride, opposers say it is a symbol of support for slavery and racism.

We think it's great that South Carolina is willing to make a change in the right direction. Hopefully other states in the south follow suit and make a stand for unity!

Outspoken New Jersey Governor Chris Christie Announces Presidential Bid For The Republican Party — While Calling Out His Fellow Candidates!

no title

Step aside, Donald Trump! There's another tough-talking GOP candidate in town now!

On Tuesday, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for president!

While the Republican party already has over a dozen candidates running, the New Jersey native has promised to be aggressive in his upcoming campaign. He told voters:

"You're going to get what I think whether you like it or not, or whether it makes you cringe every once in a while or not. I am now ready to fight for the people of the United States of America."

Though the 52-year-old's resume is impressive, he has also faced backlash from former aides who created traffic jams at a bridge to get back against a Democratic mayor who chose not to endorse Christie's re-election!

[ Related: Mexico Drops Out Of Miss Universe! ]

While Christie denied he had anything to do with the bridge closing, this raised the awareness that that those who work with the governor will do anything to win!

During his campaign launch, the presidential hopeful called out the "bickering leaders" from both parties — though highlighted Barack Obama's "weak and feckless foreign policy" and referred to fellow candidate Hillary Clinton the president's "second mate."

In the gymnasium of his old high school, the presidential hopeful declared:

North Carolina Legislature Passes A Bill That Allows Denial Of Same-Sex Marriages Based On Religious Beliefs

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersPolitikLGBT

North Carolina has passed a very disturbing bill that can affect same-sex marriage in the state.

Talk about taking taking two steps forward and 500 steps back.

North Carolina legislature has just passed a bill that allows officials to deny same-sex couples a marriage ceremony or even a marriage license if it interferes with their religious beliefs.

The bill now lands on Governor Pat McCrory's desk, where he will have 10 days to decide whether to veto it or pass it. If he does not come to a decision by then the bill will become law.

This would essentially allow court officials to opt out of performing a marriage ceremony for religious reasons.

This bill has been floating around ever since same-sex marriage was legalized in the state last October, but Governor McCrory has shot down it down in the past.

It seems that some conservatives are convinced that this is some sort of compromise and that they're REALLY protecting the officials who don't want to 'forced' to challenge their own beliefs.

It's unclear if the Governor is currently leaning in one direction or the other, but let's just say we hope he comes to his senses and shoots this thing down AGAIN!
