  • Why Ted Cruz Won Iowa

    While the attention of political pundits has already moved on to next week's New Hampshire primary, the outcome in Iowa provides an interesting preview of the road ahead. Cruz's win provides a clearer picture of GOP voters.

  • Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Roosh?

    Kelly Hayes of Truthout: "I am not afraid of Roosh Valizadeh. Because to me, he is not the face of rape. I am afraid because most of the women I know who have survived assault have not been abused by blustering creeps like Roosh."

Ex-Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell Questioned on Vote Suppression, From ’04 to Wave of ID Laws

A recent study by the Brennan Center estimates that new voter ID laws could disenfranchise more than five million people across the country in November, including voters in swing states such as Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Virginia and Wisconsin. On Monday, Democracy Now! producer Mike Burke spoke with a prominent supporter of the new voter IDs laws, Ken Blackwell, vice chair of the Republican National Committee's platform committee and the former Republican Secretary of State in Ohio. In 2008, Blackwell oversaw the election process for Ohio while serving as state co-chair of the Committee to re-elect George W. Bush. His role in the Ohio election, which saw George W. Bush narrowly beat John Kerry, remains controversial to this day, making him the target of over a dozen lawsuits.

GUEST:

Ken Blackwell, Vice Chair of the Republican National Committee's Platform Committee and the former Republican Secretary of State in Ohio.
