On today's BradCast, some accountability news for a happy change of pace! What are the odds? [Audio link to the show posted below.]

Among the accountability stories covered on today's show:

  • 15 felony counts filed in CA against the rightwing activists who secretly video taped and then lied about Planned Parenthood;
  • 28 federal criminal counts filed in TX against a former Tea Party Republican U.S. Congressman for massive fraud and money laundering;
  • Two of NJ Gov. Chris Christie's top staffers are sentenced to prison in the "BridgeGate" scandal (as he continues to escape justice);

Also today:

  • More on Donald Trump's absurd "Energy Independence" executive order, meant to roll back Obama-era environment and climate regulations (and the legal problems he will face in court while trying to roll them back);
  • Republicans in Congress send a bill to gut the FCC's Internet privacy regulations to Trump for his signature;
  • Trump's approval ratings continue to plummet to another record (today, according to Gallup, he is now a remarkable 24 points under water);
  • "Buy American, hire American"?! Eric Trump's winery is seeking foreign, yes, foreign workers;
  • And, finally, Desi Doyen joins us for the latest Green News Report, including, among other stories, a bit of good news on a Republican Governor who has just signed a law to permanently ban fracking in his state...
