  • No. 10 Washington holds off rally, beats Arizona State 27-20

    Jake Browning spent the first three weeks earning his share of criticism for the kind of miscues not expected of a fourth-year starting quarterback. Saturday night was a return to Browning looking more like the quarterback Washington has come to expect with plenty of touchdown passes and very few mistakes. Browning threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first quarter, added a third TD toss early in the fourth quarter, and No. 10 Washington outlasted Arizona State 27-20. Browning […]

  • State lawmaker accused of relationship with ex-student; GOP leaders urge him to resign

    OLYMPIA, Wash. — A former Idaho high school student of embattled Washington lawmaker Rep. Matt Manweller says she had a sexual relationship with him in the 1990s, when she was 17 and he was 27. Under Idaho state law at the time, sex between an adult male and a female younger than 18 constituted statutory rape.

  • Senate panel gives Kavanaugh’s accuser more time to decide whether to testify

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A high-stakes standoff between Republicans and the woman accusing Brett Kavanaugh of a three-decade-old sexual attack stretched into the weekend after the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman said his panel would vote Monday on Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination without a deal on her conditions for testifying. Nearly two hours after a deadline set by Chairman Chuck Grassley expired Friday night, the Iowa Republican tweeted that he’d “just granted another extension” for Christine Blasey Ford to agree to terms […]

  • Texas: Cruz, O’Rourke trade attacks during testy first debate in Senate race

    DALLAS (AP) — Republican Ted Cruz and Democrat Beto O’Rourke repeatedly traded barbs during a testy first debate Friday night, underscoring how a Texas Senate race that long looked like a cakewalk for the conservative incumbent now appears to be anything but one. Cruz went on the attack moments after stepping on the stage, charging that his opponent suggested that police officers embodied “modern-day Jim Crow” laws in response to a question about a Dallas policewoman who shot and killed […]

  • Earl Thomas doesn’t practice, has ‘other stuff going on’; Ethan Pocic out for Seahawks

    RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Seahawks free safety Earl Thomas was at practice on Friday but did not take part because of reasons of a personal nature, according to coach Pete Carroll. Carroll left open the possibility that the issue — that he wouldn’t detail — could keep Thomas from playing Sunday in the team’s home opener against the Dallas Cowboys. “He couldn’t work today,” Carroll said. “… We’ll see how he’s doing. Make sure he’s OK.” Thomas did not take […]

  • Officials in Oregon call off cougar hunt after hiker’s death

    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Authorities in Oregon are ending a cougar hunt that was prompted by the fatal mauling of a hiker by one of the large cats earlier this month. Hunters killed a roughly 3-year-old female cougar on Sept. 14 after its image was captured on a remote camera set up at the spot where 55-year-old Diana Bober’s body had been found four days earlier. Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife carnivore coordinator Derek Broman said Friday that it’s […]

  • In wake of Trump remarks, #’WhyIDidn’tReport’ trends on Twitter as survivors explain not reporting sexual assaults

    NEW YORK (AP) — Shame. Guilt. Embarrassment. Denial. Disgust. And fear — of losing a job, friends, colleagues, privacy, safety, even one’s life. There are a myriad of reasons why survivors of sexual assault wait years to come forward — if at all. Indeed, about 7 out of 10 people who experience sexual assault never report it, according to Justice Department statistics. So survivors responded with fury Friday to President Donald Trump’s remarks challenging the veracity of Christine Blasey Ford, […]

  • Trump drops civil tone, slams Kavanaugh accuser credibility

    WASHINGTON — Abandoning his previous restraint, President Donald Trump challenged by name the woman accusing his Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault on Friday, declaring that if the alleged attack was so terrible she would have reported it to law enforcement. Trump’s change in tone — and apparent shift in tactics — came as Christine Blasey Ford’s lawyers negotiate with the Senate Judiciary Committee on the terms for her possible testimony next week in a dramatic showdown over her accusation […]
