Today’s show broadcasts from Westerville, Ohio. Amy Goodman interviews former Ohio state senator Nina Turner. They discuss the record of presidential hopeful Governor John Kasich, and why Turner has endorsed Bernie Sanders.
Kasich signed a bill Sunday aiming to defund Planned Parenthood. The law prohibits the state health department from working with organizations associated with abortion provision.
He has also, however, collaborated with Turner on a task force to improve police relations with the public following Tamir Rice’s shooting. Turner says of Kasich: “He did not play politics with this. It wasn’t about being a Republican or a Democrat. He answered the call.”
Amy also talks with long-time activist Harvey Wasserman, co author of the book What Happened in Ohio: A Documentary Record of Theft and Fraud in the 2004 Election. Noted investigative reporter Greg Palast has contributed extensive research on the issue of electronic election fraud and disenfranchisement.
