A rash of relatively convoluted, thoroughly unsexy political scandals involving governors is moving through the country. So many of them involve Republican presidential hopefuls that conspiracy theorists could argue they must be manufactured, or at least overhyped, by wily Democratic strategists. At least one Democratic governor has also been implicated, though. Most of the scandals (or, to be fair, sometimes pseudo-scandals) are pretty hard to follo...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Chris Christie’s transition team and her husband were under “enormous stress” in the weeks before he fatally shot her and then killed himself, their daughter said.

For Suchet’s dedication to Hercule Poirot through 70 TV adaptations of Agatha Christie’s works, he has been rewarded with the sort of critical praise — “miraculous” and “splendid” are among the applied adjectives — that any fellow classically trained actor would envy. Fan reaction can be similarly fervent. “T...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="#license-582272012014-07-26T11:36:02.5-06:00" id="#license-2014-07-26T11:36:02.5-06:00"> Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

So far, Chris Christie is winning. The New Jersey governor alleged Saturday that “the unrest you see in the Middle East is caused in some measure — not completely, but in some measure — by the fact that this president has not acted in a decisive, consistent way.” If you disregard the rantings of unserious provocateurs such as Sarah Palin,...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

While the Republican Party’s religious conservatives continue to fight against same-sex marriage, its governors appear to be backing off their opposition— in their rhetoric, at least.
