Quick Glance: Senator Bob Menendez Convicted, Schumer Calls for Resignation
  • Democratic Senator Bob Menendez was convicted of corruption after accepting bribes from three New Jersey businessmen and acting as a foreign agent for the Egyptian government.

  • Menendez and two businessmen were found guilty of accepting bribes for personal gain. The verdict came after a nine-week trial that proved the senator abused his position to protect allies and enrich himself.

  • The guilty verdict could force Menendez to resign from his Senate seat, as most Democratic senators have already called for his resignation. He faces the possibility of a lengthy prison sentence, and his political future seems uncertain.

  • The senator will be sentenced on October 29 and could receive up to 20 years in prison for the most serious charges. Evidence showed that Menendez had abused his Senate position to support Egypt and benefit personally, leading to a damning verdict.

  • Republican leaders are warning party members against using overtly racist and sexist attacks against Vice President Kamala Harris, as they and former President Donald Trump’s campaign scramble to adjust to the reality of a new Democratic rival less than four months before Election Day.

  • Trump and allies have begun to refer to Harris as a 'DEI' hire - a nod to diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives.

Elon Musk’s Net Worth Falls $16 Billion As Tesla Stock Tanks
Quick Glance: Elon Musk's Fortune Plummets $16 Billion Amid Tesla Stock Decline
  • World’s richest man Elon Musk got a good deal less rich Wednesday as the share price of his electric vehicle company Tesla spiraled, causing a broader stock market drought that tanked the net worths of several other billionaires associated with the companies.

  • Musk’s fortune fell by more than $16 billion from $249 billion to $232 billion by late morning, mainly due to Tesla stock’s 12% dive after significant profit declines for the fourth consecutive quarter.

  • The single-day decline in Musk’s net worth is roughly equivalent to the entire net worth of James Ratcliffe, the second-wealthiest person in the United Kingdom.

  • Despite the value of his 13% existing stake in Tesla dropping from about $101 billion to $89 billion, Musk remains more than $30 billion richer than the next-richest person on the planet, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.
