In an overture to the MAGA crowd, Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) appeared on Steve Bannon's radio show Thursday, saying that to win in the 2022 midterm elections, Republicans have to "run with support" from former President Donald Trump and "his coalition of voters." Stefanik is the frontrunner to replace Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) as the House Republican Conference chair, should Cheney get ousted from the position. Cheney is a Trump critic, while Stefanik, who emerged as one of Trump's biggest defenders during his first impeachment, has doubled-down on her support. "I'm committed to being a voice and sending a clear message that we are one team," Stefanik told Bannon, "and that means working with [Trump] and working with all of our excellent Republican members of Congress." Several conservative pundits, media personalities, and organizations have accused Stefanik of being too moderate, with the Club for Growth going so far as to call her "a liberal." Voting records show she sided with Trump 78 percent of the time, compared to Cheney at 93 percent, and while many of his fans are railing against Stefanik, Trump likes her and considers Stefanik a "Republican star." Stefanik also told Bannon she "fully" supports Arizona's Republican-controlled Senate holding an unusual audit of the November presidential election in Maricopa County. Maricopa County election officials already conducted two audits and discovered no evidence of voter fraud, but Trump continues to spread false claims that the election was rigged against him. "We want transparency and answers for the American people," Stefanik said, later telling Bannon she wants to "be able to fix and strengthen our election security and election integrity." The audit has come to the Justice Department's attention, with the Civil Rights Division asking the Arizona Senate to explain the steps being taken to ensure the ballots are secure and no one is committing voter intimidation.

Dr. Rajendra Kapila, an infectious disease expert and professor at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, died of COVID-19 last month while in India. Kapila, 81, died on April 28, three weeks after testing positive for COVID-19, ABC News reports. India is the world's biggest COVID-19 hotspot, and Kapila went to the country to help care for relatives, his ex-wife, Dr. Bina Kapila, told WABC. She said he only planned on staying in India for a short period of time. In a statement, Rutgers called Kapila a "genuine giant in the field of infectious diseases" who was "recognized worldwide and sought out for his legendary knowledge and extraordinary clinical acumen in diagnosing and treating the most complex infectious diseases." Kapila founded Rutgers' Division of Infectious Diseases, was a founding member of the New Jersey Infectious Disease Society, and "provided care to tens of thousands of patients and trained numerous generations of medical students, residents, and fellows," Rutgers said. His wife, Dr. Deepti Saxena-Kapila, said her husband was fully vaccinated before traveling to India; while it is extremely rare for a vaccinated person to die of COVID-19, most who have died had underlying health conditions and were older, ABC News reports. Kapila's ex-wife told WABC he had heart issues and diabetes.

Peter Phillips and his estranged wife, Autumn, are heading to court for a financial settlement hearing over their divorce. The couple, who have two daughters, announced last February that they were divorcing, after 12 years of marriage. A High Court judge will next week hear from lawyers for each party as they seek to separate their finances and agree a settlement. The pre-trial review hearing will be heard remotely before Mr Justice Peel in the Family Division. Mr Phillips has retained Nicholas Yates QC, a leading divorce lawyer whose online profile says he handles “complex cases relating to significant assets and jurisdictional disputes” and also “leads negotiations in high-value postnuptial agreements”. He worked alongside Ayesha Vardag last year, representing wealthy businessman Simrin Choudhrie, 38, who sought £100 million from Bhanu Choudhrie, 41, an heir of one of India's richest families who appeared on the Channel 4 reality show The Secret Millionaire. Mr Phillips, 43, the only son of the Princess Royal, has applied for reporting restrictions barring the disclosure of financial and other personal details.

KMazur/GettyBoybander, bar and nightclub owner, businessman, and entrepreneur are some of the many career hats Lance Bass has worn, but he’s looking to add another: investor in a billion-dollar company.The NSYNC member has joined the new show Unicorn Hunters, from the creators behind The Masked Singer and premiering May 10, which presents the opportunity to industry movers and shakers to share a piece of the pie of the next big disrupter business.In a way, the show is serving as a form of redemption for Bass, who’d already missed a chance to be an early backer of Uber. “I definitely am kicking myself,” Bass confesses to The Daily Beast, describing himself as a conservative investor. “I was like, ‘It’s very revolutionary and I think this could disrupt the taxi market.’ But my gut was like, ‘I don’t know, I’m just not ready.’”Surprisingly, his decision couldn’t even be swayed by Britney Spears, who Bass says was the person who introduced him to the company in the first place.“She was one of the first investors behind it,” he reveals. “I don’t even know if most people know that, but I learned all about it from her.”Artist Reveals Paris Hilton’s Infamous ‘Stop Being Poor’ Tank Was FakeValued at around $80 billion, early investors in Uber made a windfall with the ride-share app, which went public in the spring of 2019. Actor Ashton Kutcher, a notable early investor in the Silicon Valley startup, and his partner turned their initial $500,000 investment into millions.Spears, considering her Las Vegas residency, countless No. 1 songs, and sold-out tours across the world, has a surprisingly low net worth of $60 million, especially when taking into account her early investment in Uber. Currently, the pop star’s finances and how they are handled are under the microscope due to her conservatorship battle with her father, Jamie Spears.But Bass is determined not to let another Uber slip by him again, joining Unicorn Hunters’ expert panel, called the “Circle of Money,” which includes Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, former U.S. Treasurer Rosie Rios, former White House adviser Moe Vela, and CEO of Livingston Securities Scott Livingston.Similar to Shark Tank, investment seekers come on the show to present their companies to the powerhouse businessmen and women. But there’s a twist: Viewers aren’t just sitting on their couches watching the rich become richer, they also have the opportunity to back the companies pre-IPO—potentially turning a $100 investment into a whole lot more.Much like the everyday viewer, Bass explains that he’s recently new to investing in these types of big firms, normally dealing with much smaller startups. He says he ended up investing in a few of the companies that appeared on the show.For him to hand over his money, Bass believes that not only do the idea and numbers need to be impressive, but he also wants the founders to be passionate about their business.Another important aspect for Bass when backing a company is if it’s eco-friendly. “Everything that I invest in, I always want to have some kind of giving-back element,” he says. “I’m a huge advocate for the planet, I’m an environmentalist. So, the companies that I love to invest in are the ones that are changing the world, the innovation that is going to save this planet.”“There are some really great [companies] that you’re going to see,” Bass adds. “The standout for me is this UV light company that is going to help kill viruses and diseases by light, which is just perfect timing for what we’re going through in this pandemic. Bio farming is another big thing for me. There’s one product that is going to help us grow food in a non-GMO way, which will help solve so much of the hunger problems in this world.”Ultimately, Bass is excited about being a part of the show because it prioritizes making investing accessible. It aims to help bring everyday people into the fold and break down the closed doors of Wall Street.Pointing to the recent interest in stocks and investing due to Robinhood and the GameStop phenomenon, Bass says consumers “are finally realizing they have the power.”“Look what’s happening in the NFT world right now, that is investing,” he maintains. “This young generation, they’re getting used to this and they’re realizing they do have so much power.”“You don’t have to be on Wall Street to make money.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.
