Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg may have a leg up on his competition in 2020. In South Bend, Indiana, Buttigieg is nearly universally known and nearly everyone seems to have a "Mayor Pete" story. Katie Kowals, an intake nurse at the city's Memorial Hospital, said her brother-in-law knows Buttitgieg well, but added, "He was exactly as he is now." "You know what else?" she asked. "Mayor Pete was also voted most likely to become president in our yearbook." In 2000, then a senior in high school, Buttigieg was voted "most likely to become president" at St. Joseph High School. It also turns out Kowals brother-in-law, Peter Kowals, is in the yearbook photo with Buttigieg, with his hands wrapped around his neck. (St. Joseph's High School Yearbook) Democratic presiden...

Attorneys for the owner and manager of a Florida day spa, where New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and other men were allegedly caught on camera receiving sexual favors are claiming either prosecutors or police are trying to profit from the unauthorized sale of the footage "to the highest bidder," according to newly filed court documents. "I am deeply disturbed that someone in the Palm Beach County attorney’s office or Jupiter Police Department — who are the only ones with access to these video — would attempt to sell and profit from these videos and be in contempt of the courts orders," attorney Tama Beth Kudman told ABC News on Friday. "It’s disgraceful." Kudman, who represents Hua Zhang, the owner of Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Florida — charged with multiple counts o

Sen. Mitt Romney, a regular sparring partner of President Donald Trump, came out as strongly as any Republican against the president's actions highlighted in the Mueller report on Friday. "I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President," Romney, Utah's junior senator, said in a release. "I am also appalled that, among other things, fellow citizens working in a campaign for president welcomed help from Russia — including information that had been illegally obtained; that none of them acted to inform American law enforcement; and that the campaign chairman was actively promoting Russian interests in Ukraine."

A pair of 14-year-old Florida middle school girls are facing felony charges for conspiracy to commit kidnapping and murder after being arrested this week in what authorities described as a plot to kidnap and kill 9 people. Court records reviewed by ABC News Tampa affiliate WFTS indicate that a teacher told police she observed the girls acting “hysterical” while searching for a folder at school, and heard one say that “I’m just going to tell them it’s a prank if they call me or if they find it.” ABC News is withholding the identity of the girls due to their age. The teacher located the folder, which allegedly contained eight handwritten notes detailing the kidnapping and murder plot, and notified authorities, according to WFTS.

A pathologist's review of fifth grader Raniya Wright’s death revealed that she had a rare birth defect that caused her death, rather than the fight that she was involved in minutes before she became unresponsive, officials announced on Friday. Her mother and attorney still question the role of teachers and the girl involved in the fight. South Carolina solicitor Duffy Stone said that charges will not be filed because a forensic pathologist has determined that Wright had arteriovenous malformation (AVM), where arteries and veins are intertwined rather than separated and occasionally rupture. Raniya had this condition since birth, the report showed. Stone said that AVM sometimes results in pressure, “the manifestation of these being headaches was something that was in Raniya Wright’s h
