toward what is a likely lawsuit against the city.
In a letter submitted to officials Friday, a legal represen-
tative of Southern California-based Turner’s Outdoorsman
sporting goods store notified them of allegations the city
forced the business to take steps other stores selling guns
in the city were not required to take and failed to proceed
with the company’s application for a business license prior
to a vote on the moratorium, among other alleged viola-

Man dies in cliff fall while
reportedly trying to rescue dog
A 67-year-old man fell from a 492-foot cliff at a beach in
Daly City late Monday morning and died from his injuries,
according to the National Park Service.
Around 11:10 a.m., the man went down a cliff at the
southern end of Fort Funston reportedly to rescue his dog,
NPS officials said.
A California Highway Patrol helicopter helped lift the
man from the cliffside to a parking area.
KGO-TV reports San Mateo County fire officials found
the body Monday morning at the bottom of the cliff below
Palisades Park.
Rescuers helped the dog get back up the cliff, where he
was turned over to a friend or family member of the victim.
The park is popular with hikers and dog walkers.
The NPS is continuing to investigate the fatal fall.
They’re also reminding beachgoers to never try to rescue
pets from cliffsides and to instead call 911.

Ex-workers at Russian ‘troll factory’ trust U.S. indictment

complex. Russians. It alleges that Yevgeny Prigozhin — a wealthy
restaurateur dubbed “Putin’s chef,” paid for the internet
operation that created fictitious social media accounts and
used them to spread tendentious messages.
The aim of the factory’s work was either to influence vot-
ers or to undermine their faith in the U.S. political system,
the 37-page indictment states.
Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters Monday
that while the indictment focuses on “Russian nationals,” it
gives “no indication that the Russian government was
involved in this in any way.” Peskov reasserted that
Moscow did not interfere in the U.S. election.
Mindiyarov said he failed the language exam needed to
get a job on the Internet Research Agency’s Facebook desk,
where the pay was double than the domestic side of the fac-
tory. The sleek operation produced content that looked as if

Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s chances of winning
the U.S. presidential vote, Mindiyarov recalled.
“I wrote that her chances were high and she could become
the first female president,” he told the AP.
Mindiyarov said he took a job at the troll factory in late
2014 because he was unemployed and curious. At the time,
about 400 people occupied four floors of an office building
and worked 12-hour shifts, he said. Most of the operation
focused on the separatist insurgency in eastern Ukraine and
Western sanctions against Russia, not political races in the
West, he said.

What to wear at polls? High
court will have a say on that
WASHINGTON — A “Make America Great Again” hat. A tea
party T-shirt. A MoveOn.org button.
Wear any one of those items to vote in Minnesota, and a
poll worker will probably ask you to remove it or cover it
Like a number of states, Minnesota bars voters from wear-
ing political items to the polls to reduce the potential for
confrontations or voter intimidation. But that could change.
The Supreme Court on Feb. 28 will consider a challenge to
the state’s law, in a case that could affect other states, too.
Wen Fa, a lawyer with the Pacific Legal Foundation, the
group behind the challenge to Minnesota’s law, says voters
wearing political apparel shouldn’t have to hang up their
hats, turn their T-shirts inside out or put their buttons in
their bags just to cast a ballot.
Wearing political clothing is “a passive way to express
core political values,” said Fa, who said the case is “about
the free speech rights of all Americans.”
Minnesota sees it differently. In court papers, it says the
law is a “reasonable restriction” that preserves “order and
decorum in the polling place” and prevents “voter confusion
and intimidation.”

Pennsylvania’s new
congressional map could boost Democrats
HARRISBURG, Pa. — Pennsylvania’s high court issued a
new congressional district map for the state’s 2018 elec-
tions on Monday, potentially giving Democrats a boost in
their quest to capture control of the U.S. House unless
Republicans can to stop it in federal court.
The map of Pennsylvania’s 18 congressional districts is
to be in effect for the May 15 primary and substantially
overhauls a Republican-drawn congressional map widely
viewed as among the nation’s most gerrymandered. The map
was approved in a 4-3 decision, with four Democratic jus-
tices backing it and one Democratic justice siding with two
Republicans against it.
The divided court appears to have drawn its own map with
the help of a Stanford University law professor, although
some district designs are similar to proposals submitted to
the court by Democrats.
