In other news, Russia's professional interference trolls also reportedly invaded Pokemon Go, really, to drive up racial tensions.
Meanwhile, a review by the Wichita Eagle has found that Kansas secretary of state and gubernatorial candidate Kris Kobach once adefended apartheid South Africa by saying we should not pass economics sanctions.
Finally, Rep. Tim Murphy (R-PA), the disgraced congressman who's resigning this month after being caught telling his mistress to get an abortion, reportedly used the House student loan program to threaten his staffers.
The program, a benefit to House staffers, repays up to $833 a month to federal student loan providers for employees who agree to stay in their jobs for at least a year. If they quit early, an office can demand repayment.
In practice, offices very rarely ask employees who don’t finish a full year to pay back the money. “The member has the option to waive this repayment at his/her discretion,” a House overview of the program states. But in Murphy’s office, it was well known that anyone who left before a full 12 months would have to reimburse the House.
