What questions do you have about Guantanamo?

What’s the latest on the ongoing strike? How likely is Obama to keep his renewed promise to close the prison? And how do you report on a facility so hidden from the public?

We’re bringing together a group of journalists to answer your questions about the US’ most controversial prison. On Friday at 2 pm ET, ProPublica’s Cora Currier will be joined by Carol Rosenberg of the Miami Herald, Ryan J. Reilly of the Huffington Post, and Charlie Savage of the New York Times to discuss what’s going on at Gitmo.

Leave your questions here, or tweet them with the hashtag #GitmoChat.Read More

Where do these eight senators stand?

The gun bill is expected to advance in the Senate with a cloture vote tomorrow, thanks in part to eight Republicans who broke with their party’s filibuster campaign. According to The Washington Post, those senators include: 

John McCain (Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Mark Kirk (Ill.), Johnny Isakson (Ga.), Tom Coburn (Okla.), Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.), Kelly Ayotte (N.H.) and Susan Collins (Maine)

We’ve been trying to get a better sense of how the gun vote is shaping up since Monday, with readers calling more than 30 senators to obtain their positions on SB 649.

Help us get positions for these eight senators by calling these eight senators — contact information and a way to report what you find are all here in our gun vote tracker.

When these things happen, the consequences are devastating for defendants and their families and the victims, and the consequences for [the] prosecutor responsible are nonexistent.

Having a hard time keeping up with all the arrests coming from Albany last week? The New York Times mapped who’s who in the bribes and corruption in New York’s state legislature.
