Naked Ballots & Afraid
America has passed the grim milestone of 200,000 deaths in the COVID-19 crisis, which was made far worse by Trump’s abjectly poor leadership. The FDA is expected to roll out new, more rigorous standards for approving the coronavirus vaccines following concerns that Trump would try to push out an unsafe drug. As the election approaches, there have been a deluge of legal cases seeking to address how people can vote during the pandemic. We discuss legal battles in four swing states: North Carolina, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. And in headlines: a Black man in Wisconsin is suing police after being held at gunpoint in his own home, the Trump administration tries to re-impose UN sanctions on Iran against the UN’s will, and millions of dollars in mask fines for NFL coaches.Show links:"They're called 'naked ballots': Here's why they could play a pivotal role in the election"https://www.wtae.com/article/theyre-called-naked-ballots-heres-why-they-could-play-a-pivotal-role-in-the-election/34114663#Info & volunteer opportunities in Pennsylvania:https://votesaveamerica.com/state/pennsylvania/
