The ACLU Challenges Florida Voter Purge in Federal Court; The Conservative Effort to Divide the Working Class06/11/12 Robert Lorei
Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Monday) | Listen to this entire show:
Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. I'm Rob Lorei. Coming up today we'll talk about the ACLU' s lawsuit against Florida over the voting purge. And we'll talk about the conservative strategy to divide working class voters. But first some listener comments about last Friday's program. Several listener comments wanted to discuss the voting purge and tax breaks for Wal-Mart. Here's what three listeners had to say.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLUFL), the Lawyersâ€™ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law (LCCRUL) and the law firm of Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP last Friday filed a legal challenge to Floridaâ€™s efforts to make lawful citizens and already legally registered voters re-verify their citizenship or lose their ability to vote. Here to talk about it is Baylor Johnson who is a spokesperson for the Florida ACLU.
Next up- in the wake of last week's Wisconsin recall vote some conservatives have come up with a new strategy to divide working people in the US. The strategy was out lined on Red State by Ned Ryun president of the American Majority last week.
And yesterday there was a discussion on the ABC-TV show THIS WEEK in which the conservatives on the panel (Mike Huckabee and Ann Coulter) decried the salaries paid to public sector workers.
