Out d’Coup | Dark Money Backs Senator Scott Wagner’s Bid for Governor; News from Trumplandia; Need for Independent, Media; and, beer!
It’s January 6, 2017. Happy New Year and welcome back to Raging Chicken Out d’Coup Podcast. This is Kevin Mahoney, editor and founder of Raging Chicken Press - and now, Raging Chicken Media. Each week I talk to our Capitol muckraker-in-chief, Sean Kitchen, about the good, the bad, and the ugly in state and national politics.
On today’s show, we’re digging into the role Dark Money is playing and will play in future Pennsylvania elections. We’ll dive into Sean’s articles digging into the Dark Money swimming around right-wing glory boy State Senator Scott Wagner’s newly announced campaign for Governor. The stage is set for a dirty election in 2018.
And...We are edging closer to the dawn of Trumplandia...T minus two weeks and counting. We’ll take a look about why the resistance must begin now. There are some encouraging signs from the new Democratic Party leadership, but let’s be clear: the Democrats will cave at the drop of a hat unless there are powerful political movements pushing them to do the right thing.
