The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 06/12/12

Air date: 
Tue, 06/12/2012 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
A deeply unpopular governor buys himself a recall election. Welcome to the age of Citizens United.

 Last week, at long last, Wisconsin governor Scott Walker went before the electorate to face the consequences of his anti-labor, anti-woman jihad. And he won.

How do you win a recall election as a deeply unpopular chief executive? By outspending your opponent 7 to 1. The Wisconsin race establishes the electoral paradigm in the post-Citzens United era: democracy is for sale. With Joe on vacation, Abe looks at the brave new world of American politics.
