January 13, 2011
Hosted by Kevin O'Neill
Join us this week on the Capital Thinking Radio Show with guest host Vincent Frillici as he will be first joined by Stephen McHale to talk about the concerns over airport security scanners and the invasion of privacy issues which ensued. Next, in the wake of this past weekend's senseless shooting and attempted assassination of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) in Arizona, Vince will be visited by political analysts, Erick Mullen and Bret Boyles and discuss the level of discourse and political rhetoric in the country today, what should change and what types of challenges this will present for Election 2012. Finally, do you have concerns over voting accuracy? In our final half hour, we will hear from Sean Flaherty of Verified Voting and Sarah Vilms, with special guest, Rep. Rush Holt (D-NJ). Together, they will examine the current issues with the trustworthiness of elections, voting machines and internet voting, and the voting situation for 2012.
