Clintons' Gift Adorns Scaife's Tree


Back in the 1990s, it would have been inconceivable to think Tribune-Review owner Dick Scaife would be receiving Christmas gifts from Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Grisham and his wife, Renee Grisham, donated a total of $9,600 to Sestak's campaign in June, according to Sestak's recently filed Federal Election Commission campaign disclosure reports.

You wouldn't think the Grishams, residents of Tupelo, Miss., would take an active interest in Pennsylvania's Senate race.

But Grisham, whose legal thrillers include "The Client," "The Pelican Brief" and, most recently, "The Associate," is a frequent contributor to various Democrat campaigns. The former Mississippi state representative has donated more than $100,000 to Democrat candidates over the years.

IGNOBLE ACTION. The Pittsburgh Public Schools board wouldn't seem to have much in common with the Norwegian Nobel Committee. …
