Six women filed a lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein on Wednesday, claiming that his actions to cover up assaults amounted to civil racketeering. The lawsuit was filed in a federal court in New York seeking to represent a class of “dozens, if not hundreds” of women who say they were assaulted by Weinstein.
Also, in a federal racketeering conspiracy case against a highest-ranking Baltimore police officer, Sgt. Thomas Allers, 49, of Linthicum Heights, has pleaded guilty in federal court Wednesday.

"The rich alone use imported articles, and on these alone the whole taxes of the General Government are levied. ... Our revenues liberated by the discharge of the public debt, and its surplus applied to canals, roads, schools, etc., the farmer will see his government supported, his children educated, and the face of his country made a paradise by the contributions of the rich alone, without his being called on to spend a cent from his earnings." ~ The Chief Author of our Declaration of Independence
