‘Graffiti Mansion’ raid in Las Vegas tied to Jake Paul investigation

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A federal criminal investigation into YouTube star Jake Paul led to a raid at a Las Vegas home known as the “Graffiti Mansion,” the FBI confirmed today.

WASHINGTON (AP) – U.S. testing for the coronavirus is dropping even as infections remain high and the death toll rises by more than 1,000 a day, a worrisome trend that officials attribute largely to Americans getting discouraged over having to wait hours to get a test and days or weeks to learn the results.

An Associated Press analysis found that the number of tests per day slid 3.6% over the past two weeks to 750,000, with the count falling in 22 states. That includes places like Alabama, Mississippi, Missouri and Iowa where the percentage of positive tests is high and continuing to climb, an indicator that the virus is still spreading uncontrolled...
