Radio Smart Talk for Monday, October 8:
As part of witf's continuing Election 2012 coverage, David Freed, the Republican candidate for Pennsylvania Attorney General will appear on Monday's Radio Smart Talk.
The Attorney General is Pennsylvania's top law enforcement officer in criminal matters, represents the state in legal proceedings brought by and against the Commonwealth and reviews all rules and regulations proposed by state agencies.
Freed currently serves as Cumberland County's District Attorney.
His opponents are Democrat Kathleen Kane and Liberatrian Marakay Rogers.
Also, the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU's Law School, which bills itself as the leading non-partisan source of voting rights research in the country, says, "Every voter restriction that has been challenged this year has been either enjoined, blocked or weakened. It has been an extraordinary string of victories for those opposing these laws.”
A week after an injunction was issued delaying implementation of Pennsylvania's Voter ID law, we'll discuss voter rights with Keesha Gaskins, the Senior Counsel in Brennan's Democracy Program.
