A Manhattan woman who last week admitted she fraudulently signed as a witness on nominating petitions for two campaigns seeking spots on the Rob Astorino-created Stop Common Core ballot line played a role in petitions filed in at least two other upstate races.
The U. S. military says it has airdropped weapons, ammunition and medical supplies to Kurdish forces defending the Syrian city of Kobani against Islamic State militants.
In a statement, U. S. Central Command said U. S. C-130 cargo planes made multiple drops of arms and supplies provided by Kurdish authorities in Iraq.
Using an acronym for the Islamic State group, Central Command said, "Combined with continued resistance to ISIL on the ground, indications are that these strikes have slowed ISIL advances into the city, killed hundreds of their fighters and destroyed or damaged scores of pieces of ISIL combat equipment and fighting positions."
In a conference call with reporters after Central Command announced the airdrops, senior administration officials said three C-130 planes dropped 27 bundles of small arms, ammunition and medical supplies.
More than a dozen political action committees, including the American Hotel and Lodging Association, Comcast, Capital One and the International Dairy Foods Association, quickly donated to the newly installed whip's campaign while previous contributors — Facebook, Microsoft and Halliburton — wrote another check.

A separate bill would shut off an Obama administration program to grant temporary work permits to immigrants brought here illegally as children, potentially making them subject to deportation.
Campaign contributions also helped Scalise engender goodwill as he gave a fair share of his money to some two dozen Republican incumbents and challengers.
 it didn't hurt that on his first day in his new Capitol offices — in a room Illinois congressman Abraham Lincoln used — Scalise served his colleagues gumbo, jambalaya and boudin sausage prepared by Cajun chefs.
The red-meat rhetoric plays well as Scalise refers to fierce opponents of the Keystone pipeline as "crazy, radical environmentalist nut jobs" and complains about "extreme, leftist policies that are failing."
The congressman holds town halls in his expansive district that includes parts of New Orleans, its suburbs, the Bayou and cities and parishes integral to coal production, gas drilling and the fishing industry in the Gulf of Mexico.
Some big-name politicians are joining Jewish protesters in a growing firestorm against an opera they say glorifies Palestinian terrorists.
Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Gov. George Pataki and two U. S. congressmen are among hundreds expected outside the Metropolitan Opera on Monday to protest the Met premiere of "The Death of Klinghoffer." It's based on the 1985 murder of a disabled Jewish passenger, Leon Klinghoffer, on the Achille Lauro, an Italian cruise ship hijacked by four members of the Palestinian Liberation Front.
