The political environment in the U.S. presidential election campaign began shifting after the release of a video recording in which Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump bragged about sexually assaulting women. “When you’re a celebrity, they let you do it,” he said. The video clip, where Trump boasted about kissing, groping and attempting to have sex with women, was recorded in a 2005 conversation with “Access Hollywood” TV show host Billy Bush, which was captured on a live microphone. Since the release of the tape more than 10 women have publicly accused Trump of engaging in harassment and sexual assault over the last decade or more.  Story continues

However, Proposition 61, one of the referendum questions before voters has attracted the most money contributed by donors to defeat the measure.  Story continues
