information in the best-seller. the source tells nbc that he blames his first attorney for telling him he didn't need to submit a manuscript to the pentagon. in northwestern england, fireworks lit up the sky, but not on purpose. that happened during an explosion at a factory that mikes fireworks. now one person is missing while four people are recovering from injuries. and check this out from gawker. this poor guy could not have picked a better shirt to get arrested in. we'll show it to you right here. michael daly was arrested in florida on tuesday on marijuana possession. most fittingly, look what it reads under there. a monopoly shirt in his mug shot that says go directly to jail. we're guessing, no, he did not pass go nor collect $200. a halloween edition of scrambled politics is next complete with michael jordan's scary view of president obama's golf game. we'll bring it to you next. er ] we love our smartphones. and now telcos using hp big data solutions are feeling the love, too.
that's cash back twice. it's cash back with a side of cash back. the citi double cash card. the only card that lets you earn cash back twice on every purchase with 1% when you buy and 1% as you pay . with two ways to earn, it makes a lot of other cards seem one-sided. get ready for a frightful halloween edition of scramble politic. we start with the huffington post. ginsburg was right. texas extreme voter i.d. law is stopping people from voting. just like supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg wrote in her descent, some people in texas have been turned away from voting for not having one of seven types of qualifying i.d. hillary clinton was heckled. they are pushing hillary on the
issue. >> and over the years of service, you know that anthony brown has earned a bronze star in iraq and, you know, the dream act was passed in this state. >> very unchris christie in how she handled that one. mary landrieu had some candid moments for meet the press' chuck todd. she told him -- >> very, very honest with you in the south it is not always the friendliest place for african-americans. it has been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a positive light as a leader. >> she also said the south is more of a conservative place, which is why women also faced challenges presenting themselves. louisiana governor bobby jindal called her words remarkably divisive. president obama is no match for basketball legend michael
jordan when it comes to playing golf. here is how jordan answered host ahmad rashad when he talked about his golf dream foursome. >> i never played with president obama, but i would. >> that's your morning dish of scrambled politics. all right, four days before election day, anything can happen, anything can be said. i'm joined by kevin sirilli from the hill. mary landrieu, what she said about the president's unpopularity in the south, south is not always the friendliest place for african-americans. with the race so close there in louisiana and the gop control of the senate here at stake, can she afford to say something like this, even if it is already clear she was keeping that distance from the president? >> happy friday. happy halloween. what a gaffe coming from the incumbent candidate down in louisiana. this is something i think, you know, can she afford this gaffe?
we'll find out in a couple of days, but democrats have tried all cycle to distance themselves from the president. but as we just heard, governor bobby jindal saying that she's quote/unquote living in a different century, this was a divisive comment to say the least. i think it will continue reverberating today. and probably if she had a chance to do over she might not have made the same remark. >> you can imagine the crisis control in the backpedaling happening in the next couple of days as we'll hear about, i'm sure. when it comes to election day, two states here -- granite state poll shows jeanne shaheen leading over scott brown in north carolina. kay hagan ahead of tom hillis. both campaigns playing the bill and hillary card in both states. will that be enough in. >> i think it will be enough for
them. i think republicans will take control back of the senate. but they're playing the clinton card, they're not playing the obama card, which i think is pretty interesting. and perhaps indicative of where the party is moving in the next couple of months as we head into 2016. but i do think senator okay hagan has run a smart campaign. i think she'll be able to hang on. what is next for scott brown if he loses this? >> maybe another new england state, like massachusetts, check, new hampshire, check. >> you said it, not me. >> somebody out there, not just me. happy halloween, thanks. just ahead, rosie o'donnell channels her inner rapper. miley cyrus leaves very little to the imagination at the amfar gala. there you go. we'll bring you details next. jewelers to sporting good stores, we provide financing solutions for all sorts of businesses. banking. loyalty. analytics. synchrony financial.
