Democrats to Romney: 'Stop whining' over felony remark

(CNN) – The suggestion this week from a top Obama campaign official that Mitt Romney may have committed a felony by listing himself as CEO of Bain Capital after leaving the firm was picked apart Sunday, with Republicans decrying the remark as the worst type of divisive politics and Obama's team urging its rivals to "stop whining."

Stephanie Cutter, Obama's deputy campaign manager, originally made the claim Thursday on a conference call.

Governors, peering over 'fiscal cliff,' place blame differently

(CNN) – Two high-profile governors had vastly different assessments Sunday of who was to blame for the massive cuts to defense spending that are slated to go into effect at the beginning of next year.

The so-called "fiscal cliff," which would force the Pentagon to cut $500 billion from its budgets over the next decade, came about after congressional negotiators failed to agree on a deficit-reduction plan last fall. Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, a Republican, blamed the potential cuts on the White House, while Gov. Deval Patrick, Democrat of Massachusetts, said Republicans in Congress were to blame.

Axelrod: Obama could have Swiss bank account if he wanted

(CNN) – Mitt Romney's accounts in offshore tax havens would have repercussions in essential governing decisions if he's elected president, a top adviser to President Barack Obama claimed Sunday.

David Axelrod said on CNN's "State of the Union" that Romney's accounts in places like Switzerland, the Cayman Islands and Bermuda would cloud his decision-making on reforming the tax code, and that the current president had avoided such conflicts of interest in his own investing choices.

Romney adviser: Obama will 'say anything' to keep job

Washington (CNN) – A top adviser to presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney said Sunday that recent allegations coming from rivals in President Barack Obama's campaign were debasing the office of the presidency.

Speaking on CNN's "State of the Union," Romney senior adviser Ed Gillespie said the GOP candidate scheduled five interviews with major broadcasters on Friday to clear his name, after an Obama campaign official suggested he had committed a felony by listing himself as CEO of Bain Capital when he no longer carried leadership responsibilities at the private equity firm.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security will allow state officials access to the SAVE - Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements - database in an agreement that was announced Saturday by Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner and the Florida Department of State.
