Hillary Clinton in Chicago: I've got to earn voters' trust

Hillary Clinton on Monday tried to unite disparate elements of the Democratic Party behind her presumptive nomination, using a stop in Chicago to acknowledge she needs to do more than talk to earn the trust of voters.

Speaking for nearly a half-hour at an international women's luncheon of the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition at McCormick Place, the former secretary of state also decried gun violence in Chicago and throughout the nation, calling it "a civil rights issue."

Clinton, who was born in Chicago and raised in suburban Park Ridge, made few references to her likely GOP rival, presumptive nominee and controversial businessman Donald Trump. Delivering a largely low-key talk, she indicated her belief that Trump has been a beneficiary of voters who have lost trust with government.

"Now, I personally know that I have work to do on this front. A lot of people tell pollsters they don't trust me," said Clinton, who blamed "25 years' worth of wild accusations" that would make anyone question her.

‘Dance Moms’ star pleads guilty

PITTSBURGH -- “Dance Moms” star Abby Lee Miller pleaded guilty Monday to bankruptcy fraud and failing to report thousands of dollars in Australian currency she brought into the country.

Miller pleaded guilty to one count of concealing bankruptcy assets and one count of structuring international monetary transactions.

She was charged last fall with illegally trying to hide $775,000 worth of income from the Lifetime network reality show and spinoff projects during her Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Authorities later accused her of dividing more than $120,000 into plastic bags and having others in her group put the bags in their luggage in August 2014, violating a law requiring people to report bringing more than $10,000 worth of foreign currency into the country.

Clinton campaign airing more TV spots in Ohio



Hillary Clinton is first out of the box with more general-election TV commercials in must-win Ohio.

The campaign of the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate began airing a new commercial this morning as part of an apparent multi-million-dollar statewide buy that runs until the eve of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia on July 25. The ad also is going up in seven other states as part of an eight-figure buy, the Clinton campaign said.

Hillary for America began buying air time in Ohio this week, including on Friday, with records showing the purchase of 869 spots costing a total of $715,260 on Channels 4, 10 and 28 in Columbus. An apparent technical problem with the Federal Communications Commission website prevented accessing information on spots bought on Channel 6. Spot checks also showed the campaign buying TV commercial time in other Ohio cities.

The 30-second spot trumpets Cinton's work as former First Lady in helping win expanded health insurance coverage for children. The campaign provided no specifics on the Ohio buy.
