Eva Longoria's work as an entertainer isn't what's earning her the biggest headlines these days. After serving as a co-chair and top bundler for the Obama campaign, Longoria has been a key part of building a Democratic operation focused on Latino issues, and getting Latinos elected. Asawin Suebsaeng reports on her new role as a serious political activist and a force to be reckoned with in liberal politics.

Sabrina Allen of Texas, missing since 2002, was found by American authorities with her mother in Mexico yesterday. Allen and mother, Dara Llorens, were taken into custody in a town southeast of Mexico City. According to law enforcement, Llorens abducted Allen during an unsupervised visit after divorcing from Sabrina's father, Greg Allen. Llorens is now being held in custody in lieu of a $300,000 bond and has been booked on charges of aggravated kidnapping. A secret mission by the FBI, U.S. Marshals, and Mexican authorities grabbed the 17-year-old girl on Tuesday. One team member was injured during the operation. Allen is reportedly undergoing medical evaluation at an undisclosed location and has not yet been reunited with her father. Her mother managed to avoid capture, in part, by changing her daughter's hair color.

The sister of the patient in Dallas who tested positive for Ebola told the media Wednesday that he was clear with doctors that he had been in Liberia before they sent him home on Sept. 26th. The hospital, who called his illness "nondescript," says he was released with antibiotics after some laboratory tests that were "not very impressive." During this period, he was contagious. Two days later, he returned and was placed in an isolation unit. The patient, now listed as "in serious condition," is believed to have come in contact with less than a dozen people. In a press conference Wednesday afternoon, Texas Gov. Rick Perry said that some "school-age children" may be among those at risk. All potential contacts are being closely monitored.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center's top Nazi hunter said Wednesday that he has sent the German government a list of 80 individuals, believed to still be alive, who were involved in the rounding up and shooting of Jews during World War II. Efraim Zuroff's list is composed of 76 men and four women who were part of the Einsatzgruppen. The group was a mobile death squad made up of SS and policemen that carried out the first phase of the Holocaust by shooting more than a million Soviet Jews and tens of thousands of others by spring 1943. "Almost every person in the Einsatzgruppen was a murderer, a hands-on murderer," Zuroff said.
