    Fascinating story developing in central N.C. where a threat from the guardian of a promising freshman football player against the coach led school officials to discover he was ineligible due to some shady visa paperwork. They handed it off to law enforcement who are now saying that the guardian had a house set up where multiple teenagers were living without supervision and as many as 23 kids were in his care - but they can't find most of them.

    It looks like the guy has been running around as a huckster recruiting kids to bogus basketball academies for years.

    There's no such thing as voter fraud.

    No doubt they're now taking beginner composition at the local community college.
