Ranking Democrat urges committee to refer Daniel Snyder case to DOJ

Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) wrote in an eight-page letter Wednesday to Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.), the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability, that the Department of Justice should investigate Snyder for lying under oath and obstructing the committee’s investigation.

“Making false statements to Congress and obstructing Congressional investigations are serious crimes,” Raskin wrote in the letter, a copy of which The Washington Post obtained. “This Committee cannot conduct effective oversight if witnesses misrepresent and obscure the truth. I therefore urge you to hold Mr. Snyder accountable by referring him to the Department of Justice for investigation and, if warranted, prosecution, for lying under oath and obstructing this Committee’s investigation.”

New Jersey high court sides with Catholic school over teacher fired for premarital sex

Single and pregnant Victoria Crisitello was fired in 2014 by St. Theresa School in Kenilworth, which had the right to terminate her, the court said.

New Jersey’s highest court ruled that a Catholic school was within its legal right to fire an unmarried pregnant teacher who had failed to “abstain from premarital sex,” as a condition of her job.

Victoria Crisitello was hired by her alma mater, St. Theresa School in Kenilworth, in 2011 as a toddler caregiver before she was also assigned to teach art a year later.
