Brad and Dan begin by discussing the Senate’s passage of the Respect for Marriage Act, which provides federal protections for same-sex marriage. Both hosts see the bill as a net win, but are concerned about the concessions it gives to churches and conservative lawmakers.
They then discuss the seditious conspiracy conviction for Oath Keepers leader Stewart Rhodes. Again, it’s a net win, but it won’t prevent right-wing extremism or put out the fire of the Big Lie. For that, we need the conviction of someone else. . .
In the final segment they breakdown the refusal of several counties in Arizona to certify the election. Brad traces this back to the Big Lie and notes why it is more than a footnote in the 2022 midterms.
