The NRA's brazen shell game with donations: A Yahoo News investigationAtlanta's Mike Budenholzer voted NBA coach of the year (Yahoo Sports)

The organization may be violating several federal election laws, according to experts.


FILE APRIL 21: The Atlanta Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer has been named the 2014-15 NBA Coach of the Year, finishing ahead of Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr on April 21, 2015. Budenholzer led the Hawks to their first 60-win season in franchise history and the top seed in the Eastern Conference.

Mike Budenholzer was right where he didn't want to be: the center of attention. Budenholzer was honored as the NBA coach of the year on Tuesday, an award that moved him to tears as he spoke about the people who meant so much to his career. ''Winning this award evokes a lot of emotions,'' Budenholzer said, choking up several times. So it didn't sound like polite modesty when he said he would have preferred for Golden State's Steve Kerr to win the award.


Live updates: Sentencing phase in Tsarnaev trialMiserable winter over, Jackson focused on Knicks' key summer (Yahoo Sports)

Phil Jackson oversaw the worst season in Knicks history, though he knows the franchise's future won't be determined by what happened during one miserable winter. ''That's going to be our challenge.'' His end-of-season meeting with reporters was full of hope but little regret after the Knicks finished 17-65 in his first full season as president of basketball operations. He was limited last summer, when the Knicks didn't have a first-round draft pick or money to spend in free agency. Jackson can build a team with that, along with a returning Carmelo Anthony, and will go into free agency the same way he came into New York: selling the triangle offense.

Major League Baseball suspended Kansas Royals reliever Kelvin Herrera five games and fined him and pitcher Yordano Ventura on Tuesday after both targeted Oakland third baseman Brett Lawrie during a testy series over the weekend. Herrera was tossed in the eighth inning of Sunday's game after throwing behind Lawrie, the second time he had thrown inside to him. Ventura was ejected a day earlier when he hit Lawrie with a 99 mph fastball above the left elbow immediately following Josh Reddick's home run. Unless he appealed, Herrera was to start his suspension Tuesday night against Minnesota.


Obama attorney general nominee heads for vote after 5 monthsCubs promote highly touted prospect Addison Russell (Yahoo Sports)

In this April 14, 2015, photo Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell of Ky. speaks to reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, April 14, 2015, following a Senate policy luncheon as Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn of Texas, and Sen. Roger Vicker, R-Miss., right, listen. Suddenly, bipartisanship has broken out on Capitol Hill. On Iran, Medicare, education and trade, Republicans and Democrats have come together to make deals, and that’s something rarely seen lately. "It’s great," Cornyn said after the Senate followed the House’s lead this past week in overwhelmingly passing a bill overhauling the Medicare payment system for doctors. "There’s just a huge pent-up demand to actually get something done, on both sides." (AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta)WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate leaders announced a deal Tuesday to move forward on a stalled human trafficking bill, clearing the way for a vote on President Barack Obama's attorney general nominee within days.

The 21-year-old Russell will start at second base and bat ninth when the Cubs play the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday night. Russell was the centerpiece of the blockbuster trade that sent pitcher Jeff Samardzija to Oakland last summer. The 11th overall pick in the 2012 amateur draft, Russell hit .318 with four doubles and a home run for Triple-A Iowa.

Boston designated hitter David Ortiz was suspended for one game and fined by Major League Baseball on Tuesday. MLB said Ortiz was punished by senior vice president Joe Garagiola Jr. for making contact with umpire John Tumpane during the fifth inning of Sunday's game against Baltimore. Ortiz was ejected by Tumpane after the batter was upset that third base ump Jerry Meals called a swing on an attempted check of a 1-1 pitch. Boston manager John Farrell talked with MLB officials after Sunday's game and said he was surprised by the suspension.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One

Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.

Capitalism and The Wealth Gap

When it comes to the efficient delivery of goods and services, capitalism is the proven economic model that puts people to work and products on the shelves. Whether those jobs end up paying enough money to purchase the items on those shelves is another matter, however.

Living Wages Are A Global Problem

The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.

Ukraine: Not What It Seems

After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.

Religious Freedom Bill - Protecting The Faithful or Legalized Discrimination?

After a much heated national debate, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer vetoed the controversial bill that would have allowed people and businesses in the state to refuse services to LBGT people based on their religious belief.

Coup Or Civil War In Egypt

The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
