We Want You!

Sep 28, 2012

During our pledge drive, we highlight the work of reporters from the WLRN-Miami Herald newsroom. They give us the latest on Governor Rick Scott's voter purge efforts. How many non-citizens are actually registered to vote and voting? The November ballot will include several proposed amendments to the state constitution. Ashley Lopez and Sarah Gonzalez tell us about them. Plus: more evidence on allegations that Republican Congressman David Rivera funded a Democratic candidate's campaign. Our guests from WLRN also include Dan Grech, Sammy Mack, Kelley Mitchell and Kenny Malone.
