The Suicidal Co-Pilot [IS]
Today we discuss the Germanwings co-pilot who crashed the plane after locking the pilot out of the cockpit when he went to the bathroom.
I was joined by Craig Holman in the second hour, who serves as Public Citizen’s Capitol Hill lobbyist on ethics, lobbying and campaign finance rules. We discussed the possibility of President Obama issuing an executive order requiring full disclosure of political spending by corporations receiving federal contracts, as well as by their directors and officers.
I also discussed the violent arrest of Martese Johnson, a black University of Virginia student, by state liquor agents that left him bloodied and needing 10 stitches in his head.
Finally, I spoke with Jessica Taylor, the Campaign Editor for The Hill. We discussed the Religious Right voters and how Republican Presidential candidates will try to court them for 2016.
