Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has officially declared February 6 Bob Marley Day in honor of the Jamaican singer, who would have turned 69 years old today.

Perhaps it's no surprise that Ford is a Marley fan, as the politician was seen in a video posted this winter dancing to "One Love" during a council session.

He is also high as a kite most of the time, from what we can tell.

In his official proclamation of Bob Marley Day, Rob Ford said:

"We honor the legacy of Robert (Bob) Nesta Marley, an influential musician, advocate for human rights and international ambassador of peace."

P.S. Pass the bong whenever you get a chance ... mon.

A video of Rob Ford smoking crack surfaced last year, as did reports of city council outbursts in which is he believed to be drunk on the job. Standard.

Ford has been pressured to step down as mayor, but refuses ...

"'Cause every little thing's ... gonna be all right!"

Clay Aiken has made the rumor into a reality:

He is running for Congress in North Carolina.

The former American Idol champion has released a lengthy video to promote his campaign, citing his success in music and his work with UNICEF as reasons why he should earn your vote.

“I’m not a politician. I don’t ever want to be one,” says Aiken, slamming incumbents for their military cuts and last year's government shutdown.

“This is what’s wrong with Washington," Aiken explains. "That a Congresswoman would go there and vote against the best interests on North Carolina military families, and those that depend on the military for their job.”

Will you vote for Aiken, who may struggle for support from Rihanna fans? VOTE NOW:

Bill Clinton and Elizabeth Hurley had sexual relations while he was President, according to a new report citing specific details from actor Tom Sizemore.

The Black Hawk Down star says Clinton carried on a torrid year-long love affair with the British supermodel behind the White House walls starting in 1998.

Radar published an audio recording during which the Hollywood actor, who had his own three-year sexual liaison with Hurley, recounts Clinton's tryst.

Sizemore says Clinton had a plane fly Hurley to Washington D.C., nailing her in the White House with First Lady Hillary Clinton in the next room over.

Tom, 52, claims he even arranged the couple’s first rendezvous.

Bill Clinton-Elizabeth Hurley Affair

It was allegedly during a 1998 White House screening of Saving Private Ryan, when President Clinton pulled Sizemore aside and asked, point blank:

“Did you go with Liz Hurley for four years? Do you still see her?”

When Sizemore confirmed they had dated but were no longer together, he says the President asked for her number. When he resisted, Bill told him:

“Give it to me. You dumb m***********r, I’m the Commander-in-Chief of the United States of America. The buck stops here. Give me the damn number.”

Not everyone wants Justin Bieber to be deported.

Asked about Bieber's latest dust-up with the law - in which the singer turned himself into Canadian police to answer assault charges from an incident in late December - Toronto Mayor Rob Ford said in a radio interview that we should cut the singer some slack.

"At 19 years old, I wish I was as successful as he was," Ford said. "He's 19 years old, guys. Think back to when you were 19."

Seriously. Who among us wasn't drag racing while high, attacking limo drivers and throwing eggs at our neighbor's home when we were 19?!?

Ford has never met Bieber, but he has been met with his own challenges while in office over the past few months.

U.S. Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY) is accused of physically and verbally threatening a TV reporter following President Obama’s State of the Union address last night.

Accused is probably the wrong word, since it took place on live TV. There's no denying this one, nor has Grimm, 43, attempted to do so in the hours since.

In an interview with NY1 reporter Michael Scotto, Grimm was asked about an ongoing campaign finance probe at which he has been the center since 2012.

“I’m not talking about anything that’s off-topic, this is only about the president,” Grimm said, referring to Obama's 2014 State of the Union address.

He then walked off camera, only to return moments later, leaning into Scotto in what appeared to be an angry exchange that partially took place off camera.

According to the transcript provided by NY1, Grimm said to Scotto, “Let me be clear to you, you ever do that to me again I’ll throw you off this f--king balcony.”

Calling for 2014 to be a "year of action," President Barack Obama's State of the Union address sounded promising, but acknowledged the inevitable:

Without cooperation with a divided, reluctant Congress, the kind of progress he envisions is not likely to be realized, despite his promises to go it alone.

"Sometimes we stumble; we make mistakes; we get frustrated or discouraged," Obama said, seemingly referring to his falling approval ratings of late.

But, President Obama added, "for more than 200 years, we have put those things aside and placed our collective shoulder to the wheel of progress."

The 2014 State of the Union address was vintage Obama, blending calls for a unified approach with declarations of his independence via executive orders.

Even Republicans relentlessly critical of Obama conceded his oratorical skill.

"A speech by Barack Obama is a lot like sex," said GOP strategist and CNN contributor Alex Castellanos. "The worst there ever was is still excellent."

Federal prosecutors have charged former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, with taking $120,000 in undocumented loans and numerous gifts.

The alleged corruption stemmed from his relationship with the owner of a dietary supplements business and helping it promote products to state officials.

The 43-page indictment includes page after page of alleged requests by the McDonnells, Maureen in particular, for help in paying for vacations.

And their daughter’s wedding, nearly $20,000 in designer dresses, a Rolex watch inscribed "71st Governor of Virginia" and numerous golf outings.

The couple also allegedly asked for private trips on the company’s jet and, once, to use a $200,000 Ferrari. Bob McDonnell has denied any wrongdoing.

Maria Conchita Alonso, a Grammy-nominated singer/actress, has pulled out of a Spanish production of The Vagina Monologues due to uproar over her role in a new political ad.

Alfonso appears alongside California gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly in the campaign video, translating for the Tea Party member and prompting backlash from Latino organizations who take issue with Donnelly's immigration views.

The politician founded a state chapter of the Minutemen, an armed vigilante border patrol group.

Due to threats of a boycott, Alonso told Fox News that she doesn't want to "hurt" the play by remaining part of it.

A minister, an activist and the leader of the American Civil Rights Movement, Martin Luther King Jr. was also one of the greatest speakers of all time.

Well-known for using the power of words to overcome social injustice, the influential figure was tragically assassinated April 4, 1968, at the age of 39.

Although his life came to an end much too soon, King’s leadership, character and unwavering desire to make a difference in our society live on.

Every year, we commemorate them on the third Monday of January. Here are 25 of the best MLK quotes to inspire you on this national holiday ...

I Have a Dream ...

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by...

This year's MLK Day carries special significance.

The masterful orator delivered his famous "I Have a Dream" speech from Washington's Lincoln Memorial on August 28, 1963, just over fifty years ago.

Addressing over 250,000 Americans, King referenced another milestone - Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation, declared 100 years prior.

He did not talk about bills before Congress or the marchers’ demands, but framed the civil rights movement within the broader landscape of history.

He evoked past, present and future, within the context of Scripture, in one of the most famous speeches - many believe the best - in U.S. history.

Forget all the flak he's taking from the press. And from voters. And from political opponents who think this could spell the end of his 2016 Presidential election bid.

THIS has to hurt the most for Chris Christie.

On Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the governor's very own musical hero joined the show's host on stage for a reworked version of "Born to Run," one that skewered Christie for his role in Bridgegate.

Yes, even Bruce Springsteen is now piling on in light of a scandal that involves Christie's subordinates purposely causing a major traffic jam for residents of Fort Lee, New Jersy because the mayor of that city didn't support Christie.

Causing kids to be late for school and thousands of people to be late for work? Not funny. The lyrics and presentation of the following parody? Totally hilarious.
