Early Voting Begins, Lebron James Heroin, Honda Recall

The rain didn't stop excited early voters from camping outside of the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections overnight.  Early voting started at 8 a.m. sharp on Tuesday morning. Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson was among the first to cast his ballot. The local elected officials and Obama supporters were also joined by Craig Robinson, the brother of U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama. On Monday, State Senator Nina Turner and members of the Ohio Senate Democratic Caucus encouraged Ohioans to spend the night outside local early voting locations in a statewide "Sleep Out The Vote" campaign. "Recent efforts by Ohio's Republican leaders to restrict early voting opportunities and disenfranchise thousands of Ohio voters are reprehensible," said Senator Turner. "Even so, it is imperative that all those who care about liberty, justice, and the right to vote make sure their voices are heard."

Upper Darby, Pennsylvania police said that they busted a major heroin dealer from Philadelphia on Thursday who had 140 packets of the deadly drug - all of which were stamped with the silhouette of a basketball player and the name "LeBron James." Whether they are Lebron fans or not, the cop said they don't think the Miami Heat star would appreciate the dealers using his name to sell street drugs.

Honda has recalled more than 500,000 of its popular Accord vehicles because of a potential fire risk. The recall includes the Accord V-6 from model years 2003 to 2007. Honda said the power steering hoses in these cars could leak and cause a fire in the engine. No crashes or injuries have been reported as a result of the recalled defect. Honda dealers will fix the problem for free. However, replacement parts for the Accord will not be available until early next year.
