Someone call Ellen Degeneres: Lady’s got moves.

Community Action Partnership of Strafford County CEO Betsey Andrews Parker gets her groove on in a viral lip-sync video set to the Pointer Sisters’ Jump .

Corey Lewandowski accused of threatening his N.H. neighbors

Ex-Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski currently is embroiled in a battle with his New Hampshire property neighbors, who say he’s made their life a living hell.

Last week, Windham, N.H., residents Glenn and Eileen Schwartz countersued Lewandowski, alleging Lewandowski threatened and bullyed them in an attempt to gain access to their lot.
