Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America help Hillary Clinton understand why she’s not 50 points ahead and enjoy the fact she’s blaming union members for her close race. They also slam Twitter for suspending Instapundit Glenn Reynolds for his controversial tweet during the Charlotte riots. And they shake our heads as Gary Johnson continues to demonstrate he’s just odd – this time speaking with his tongue out of his mouth during a national television interview.

Violent protests in Charlotte, NC, turned deadly in their second night, when a civilian was shot by another civilian. That wasn’t all. Rioters were seen trying to throw a news photographer into a fire. A CNN reporter was attacked on the air. (Basically somebody came up and body checked him to the ground.)

Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon was arrested today on theft and bribery charges after a four-year FBI sting operation. According to the Charlotte Observer, the FBI is alleging “he took tens of thousands of dollars in bribes – including $20,000 in cash delivered in a briefcase last month to the mayor’s office where he also solicited $1 million more.”

In return for the money, vacations, access to a luxury apartment, and other goodies, Cannon promised to help undercover agents posing as real estate developers with zoning, planning, and permitting. According to the U.S. attorney’s office, the FBI first learned that he might have been involved in illegal activities several years ago, leading them to open an investigation in 2010.
