Randi Rhodes Newsletter for Wednesday April 28th 2010

AZ’s new anti-immigration law is steeped in white supremacy connections…
Kris Kobach is claiming victory in Arizona – he helped write the law. Kobach is currently running for Secretary of State in Kansas and he is a lawyer for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). As chair of the Kansas GOP, Kobach was quite proud of illegally caging voters,
FAIR founder and current board member John Tanton has a long history of hate.
And then there’s Republican State Senator Russell Pearce, the freak that introduced the bill. Before last week, Pearce was known primarily for circulating a neo-Nazi article from the National Alliance (the people that brought you the Turner Diaries) and hanging out with another well-known neo-Nazi, J.T. Ready.
Meanwhile, an ICE audit showed that more than half of Arizona’s businesses had undocumented workers on their payrolls, the state is now asking the feds to help train its law enforcement to enforce the new racial profiling law – good luck with that, Jeb Bush, Karl Rove and Meghan McCain join the join the ranks of Republicans speaking out against the AZ law, Mexico just happens to be Arizona’s #1 trade partner – whoops, and from cutting healthcare to poor children to moving a pro-birther bill through its House, has Arizona’s government simply gone nuts?
Also today, Oklahoma’s government lays claim to your uterus, Goldman Sachs gets both grilled and richer on the same day, and Laura Bush believes that she and GWB were poisoned in Germany.
These stories, your calls, and much more on today’s Randi Rhodes Show!
