WASHINGTON


Liberals protest Obama cuts


Liberal lawmakers from both chambers of Congress and a coalition of like-minded groups rallied outside the White House on Tuesday, voicing frustration at the Democratic president they say has let them down by proposing cuts to Medicare and Social Security.


Organizers from more than 15 groups stacked nine file boxes in front of the White House that they said contained more than 2 million signatures on petitions urging Obama to reverse course on cuts included in the budget he will unveil today. Many of the groups, including the AFL-CIO and the National Organization for Women, played an active role in fueling Obama’s re-election last year.


Rep. Mark Pocan, a freshman Democrat from Wisconsin, said cuts to the program are an affront to the nation’s moral promise. And Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent allied with Democrats, offered a bleak warning to any lawmakers who support the measure.


“If they vote to cut Social Security, they may not be returning to Washington,” Sanders told about 100 people who gathered with signs that read “No Chained CPI” and “We earned our Social Security.”


HARRISBURG


PSU case moves forward


The criminal case can move forward against three Penn State administrators accused of covering up reports that Jerry Sandusky was behaving improperly with children, a judge ruled Tuesday.


Judge Barry Feudale denied an attempt to throw out the grand jury report backing up the accusations and ruled against several other defense requests.


Defendants Gary Schultz, Tim Curley and Graham Spanier are charged with perjury, obstruction, endangering the welfare of children, failure to properly report suspected abuse and conspiracy.


The three had sought to exclude the testimony of Penn State’s former general counsel, Cynthia Baldwin, based on her actions as she accompanied the men to grand jury appearances in Harrisburg in early 2011.


VELIKA IVANCA, Serbia


Man guns down 13 people


He went from house to house in the village at dawn, cold-bloodedly gunning down his mother, his son, a 2-year-old cousin and 10 other neighbors. Terrified residents said if a police patrol car hadn’t shown up, they all would have been dead.


Police said they knew of no motive yet in the carnage Tuesday that left six men, six women and a child dead in Velika Ivanca, a Serbian village 30 miles southeast of Belgrade.


After the rampage, police said suspect Ljubisa Bogdanovic, a 60-year-old who saw action in one of the bloodiest sieges of the Balkan wars, turned his gun on himself and his wife as authorities closed in. Both were in grave condition at a hospital in the Serbian capital.
