NY measles outbreak spotlights religious exemptions from vaccine | Times of Israel |

HAVERSTRAW, New York (AFP) -- Patricia Schnabel Ruppert, the health commissioner of an outlying New York suburban county, is feeling "overwhelmed." Since October she has been waging an uphill fight to quell one of the worst US measles outbreaks in 20 years.

... the county took the unprecedented measure on March 26 of banning unvaccinated minors from schools and public places for 30 days. Several public health specialists saluted the county's decision.

But a dozen parents of public-school students sued the county, arguing that the measure was disproportionate to the danger, particularly as there have been no deaths to date.

NXIVM: Clare Bronfman, heiress to Seagram's, pleads guilty in self-help sex cult sex slavery sex trafficking prostitution racketeering case
took a plea deal Friday along with [NXIUM's] longtime bookkeeper [!].

Bronfman, an heiress to the Seagram's liquor fortune, pleaded guilty to a count of conspiracy to conceal and harbor illegal aliens [?!] for financial gain and a count of fraudulent use of identification [?].

hmm, an alias (eg. name, SS#, EIN#) probably relating ahh transportation and hospitality services, or guest extortion, to corporate filing and tax evasion?
She is expected to face 21 months to 27 months in prison and pay $6 million [!] in restitution.
Would that punishment befits crimes against humanity. Wardrobe details.
"Your Honor, I was afforded a great gift by my grandfather and father," Bronfman said in a small voice and slight British accent to U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis, reading from prepared remarks.
< wipes tears >
Prosecutors have estimated she faces 21 to 27 months in prison -- though she faces a maximum of 25 years -- and will owe about $96,000 in restitution payments to a Jane Doe 12. She will also have to forfeit $6 million within 60 days [NY or IRS?], based on the property [!] used to facilitate the harboring charge. [...] Bronfman made false statements to help a woman she called Jane Doe 12 get a work visa for the United States. The woman then worked for Bronfman and for a NXIVM organization, Bronfman admitted, and was not paid.
