Ohio and Florida data show more Republican excess COVID-19 deaths

New statistics from Ohio and Florida published by the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) show that Republicans have suffered more COVID-related excess deaths than Democrats, adding to the literature that demonstrates the link between political party affiliation, vaccination uptake, and COVID-19 mortality.

To conduct the study, researchers linked voter registration data in Ohio and Florida to mortality data to assess the individual-level association between political party affiliation and excess mortality.

The data show that the excess COVID-19 death rate for Republicans was 5.4 percentage points, or 76%, higher than the excess death rate for Democrats, and it increased after vaccines became widely available. After the introduction of vaccines, the excess death rate gap between Republicans and Democrats widened from 1.6 percentage points (22% of the Democrat excess death rate) to 10.4 percentage points (153% of the Democrat excess death rate).

Previous studies have shown Republican-leaning, or "red "counties have had higher COVID-19 mortality rates than Democratic-leaning counties, but this is the first attempt to understand the excess death risk at the individual level.

"Registered Republicans in Florida and Ohio had higher excess death rates than registered Democrats, driven by a large mortality gap in the period after all adults were eligible for vaccines," the authors concluded. "These results adjust for county-by-age differences in excess deaths during the pandemic, suggesting that there were within-age-by-county differences in excess death associated with political party affiliation."Sep 30 NBER working paper

DALLAS, Texas - Federal law enforcement officials say there is growing concern that federal agents will be targeted in retaliation for the FBI executing a search warrant at former President Donald Trump's estate in Florida.Lester Hayes Jr., the new special agent in charge of Homeland Security investigations in the North Texas and Oklahoma region, says federal law enforcement is monitoring potential threats online."I've never witnessed this never thought it would manifest itself in this way," said Hayes. The search of Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate led to armed protests outside the Phoenix FBI office and a shootout in Cincinnati with a man who tried to storm the FBI office.RELATED: Timeline of events leading up to FBI search of Trump's homeRELATED: Ohio FBI shooting: Gunman reportedly threatened agency following raid of Trump's homeHayes has been a member of federal law enforcement for more than 20 years, but only recently came to Dallas.He says he is focused on border security because what comes across Texas-Mexico border often comes through Dallas and on to the rest of the country."Not only drugs, but people," Hayes said. "They are all traveling on the same highway." The Department of Homeland Security is also conducting multiple investigations into catalytic converter thefts across North Texas.A Dallas man confronted a suspect who appeared to be in the middle of stealing a catalytic converter from his van last week.The car parts are then sold overseas for millions of dollars, according to Hayes.Hayes is asking the community to help law enforcement catch criminals."We want to get out in the community.

Ohio FBI shooting: Gunman reportedly threatened agency following raid of Trump's home
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A gunman who died in a shootout after trying to get inside the FBI’s Cincinnati office appeared to have posted calls on social media for FBI agents to be killed and for people to take up arms and "be ready for combat" in the wake of the search at Donald Trump’s home, a law enforcement official said.Federal investigators are examining social media accounts they believe are tied to the gunman, 42-year-old Ricky Shiffer, and posts that urged violence after the FBI search at Mar-a-Lago in Florida, according to the official, who was not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.At least one of the messages on Trump’s Truth Social media platform appeared to have been posted after Shiffer tried to breach the FBI office. It said: "If you don’t hear from me, it is true I tried attacking the F.B.I."Another posted on the same site earlier this week from @rickywshifferjr included a "call to arms" and urged people to "be ready for combat" after the search.Authorities also are looking into whether Shiffer, a Navy veteran, had ties to far-right extremist groups such as the Proud Boys, the official said.Shiffer was armed with a nail gun and an AR-15-style rifle when he tried to breach the visitor screening area at the FBI office Thursday, according to the official.

Police warn of new social media challenge that targets certain models of cars
PHILADELPHIA - Owners of certain Hyundai and Kia models are being advised to take special precautions securing their vehicles due to a rash of thefts that has been sweeping cities across the nation.The Lower Moreland Police Department in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania issued a warning Wednesday that a new TikTok challenge "encourages teens and young adults to break into these cars and steal them." Videos shared on social media demonstrated how the ignition systems in mainly 2011-2021 Kias and 2015-2021 Hyundais with physical keys could be easily hacked using a screwdriver, pliers or the end of a USB cable, because the vehicles are not equipped with immobilizers that require the presence of a key fob with a transponder to work.MORE LOCAL HEADLINESNo local cases have been reported, but the Lower Moreland Police Department suggested that owners of the targeted vehicles might consider using a steering wheel locking device. "It’s pretty much just hot-wiring a car with no hot wiring required," said David Young, a Software and Car Analyst.The problem first came to the nation's attention in Milwaukee last year, where over 5,700 of the brands' cars were stolen through November, according to authorities. Additional cities followed, including Columbus, Ohio, where Kias and Hyundais have accounted for 38% of all thefts so far this year.Both Kia and Hyundai released statements about the rash of thefts:"Kia America is aware of the rise in vehicle thefts of a subset of trim levels.
