'Mom I hope I didn't kill nobody': Mother of suspect in deadly Springfield road rage shooting charged
SPRINGFIELD, Pa. - The mother of a man arrested for a deadly road rage shooting in Springfield is now being charged in connection with the case. According to Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer, Amanda Washington was charged with hindering prosecution in the case relating to the death of 54-year-old King Hua. On June 29, Hua and his wife were driving south on State Road in the curb lane when Amanda Washington passed them on the shoulder in her dark blue Chevrolet Equinox, authorities say. Washington's son, 22-year-old Saddiq Washington, was in the passenger seat of the car and fired the fatal shots that killed Hua, according to police. Springfield Township's Chief Daly said "The suspect's vehicle pulls on to the shoulder of the road, got ahead of the victim's vehicle, got out of the vehicle, fired two shots at the vehicle which permeated the window, killing the operator." After the shooting, Amanda Washington and her son fled southbound at a high rate of speed, according to investigators. Police say surveillance video showing Washington's car and license plate coupled with witness testimony helped lead investigators to the suspects. Once officers arrived at the Darby address listed on the car's registration, they saw the vehicle in the driveway and began surveilling the house while waiting for a warrant, per authorities. According to police, Washington and two other females were seen leaving the Darby home and getting into the Chevrolet Equinox around 5 a.m.

Biden to sign order on protecting abortion access amid mounting pressure
WASHINGTON - President Joe Biden will take executive action Friday to protect access to abortion, the White House said, as he faces mounting pressure from fellow Democrats to be more forceful on the subject after the Supreme Court ended a constitutional right to the procedure two weeks ago.The White House said Biden will speak Friday morning "on protecting access to reproductive health care services." The actions he was expected to outline are intended to try to mitigate some potential penalties women seeking abortion may face after the ruling but are limited in their ability to safeguard access to abortion nationwide.Biden is expected to formalize instructions to the Departments of Justice and Health and Human Services to push back on efforts to limit the ability of women to access federally approved abortion medication or to travel across state lines to access clinical abortion services.President Joe Biden delivers remarks during a ceremony to award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to seventeen recipients in the East Room of the White House on July 7, 2022, in Washington, D.C.

He said what the committee was presented with was an anonymous allegation that someone working on his campaign was being paid by a corporation.While the party hasn’t released details of the allegation, it has said it appeared to contravene financing rules under the Canada Elections Act and came from within Brown’s own campaign.A source had previously told Global News the allegation that sparked Brown’s disqualification from the party’s leadership race involved a company in Brampton paying workers for Brown’s campaign.On Thursday, Jodoin, who describes herself as an experienced organizer who has been involved with the party and its predecessor for more than 20 years, revealed herself to be the whistleblower.Jodoin said in April 2022, the month after Brown announced he would enter the contest to replace former Tory leader Erin O’Toole, she joined the campaign “at his request” to assist as a regional organizer.“Mr.
