    The USA Freedom Act passes as a replacement to the Patriot Act; disgraced US District Judge Mark 'Wife-Beater' Fuller; some good voting news in Vermont; the bizarre disposition of the Dennis Hastert indictment; and Desi Doyen with the latest 'Green News Report' on the climate change positions of four new candidates in the 2016 race...

    Then, we've finally learned if disgraced U.S. District Judge Mark 'Wife-Beater' Fuller, set to 'resign in shame', will receive a federal retirement pension. Heidi Hess of CREDOAction.com joins us to discuss that, her organization's complaint against Fuller at the 11th US Circuit Court of Appeals, and the five vacancies now on Alabama's federal court (which Republicans are trying to keep vacant for as long as possible.)

    Plus some good voting news in Vermont and maybe in Wisconsin; the bizarre disposition of the Dennis Hastert indictments; and Desi Doyen joins us for the latest Green News Report with the climate change positions of four new candidates in the 2016 race…
