Obama Just 1 Vote Away from Iran-Vote Victory
(The Hill) – President Obama is one vote away from ensuring his Iran nuclear deal survives Congress.
Sen. Christopher Coons (D-Del.) will support the agreement, becoming the 33rd senator to back the deal — one shy of ensuring that an expected presidential veto of a Republican-led resolution of disapproval would be upheld.

In 2010, Mr. O’Keefe pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges and was fined for posing as a repairman to gain access to the office of former Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana. Two years ago, Mr. O’Keefe paid $100,000 to settle a lawsuit filed by a former Acorn member after he posed as a pimp during an investigation of the activist group.
Mr. O’Keefe’s team — which he billed as an investigative SEAL Team Six — fired an opening salvo on Tuesday by calling a news conference at the National Press Club in Washington to reveal a purported violation of campaign finance laws by Hillary Rodham Clinton’s staff members...(MORE)
