What are Emoluments, How Important are Attorneys General & Why is Trump Getting Sued? with Karl Racine

Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness #79 October 30, 2018

Karl Racine is Attorney General for the District of Columbia – the only Attorney General in Trump’s backyard. He is the first elected AG in the District of Columbia, the co-chair of the Democratic Attorneys General Association, and the VP of the bipartisan National Association of Attorneys General.

Attorney General Racine joins Jonathan to talk about corruption in government, his work to fight systemic child sexual abuse and protecting consumers. All this goes towards why November 6th’s midterm election is so important and why voters should be sure to vote down the whole ballot (and not just for house or senatorial candidates).
