The good martini has the day off, so brace for three bad ones! Join Jim and Greg as they question New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s failure to change state policy that sends some COVID-19 patients to nursing homes after leaving the hospital. They also cringe at new Senate polls in Montana and North Carolina. And they remain concerned about our food supply chain (and have flashbacks to the 1980’s) as Wendy’s announces some of their locations cannot serve burgers right now.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome a unanimous Supreme Court decision forbidding states from seizing assets in excess of the penalties a convicted person faces. They also unload on Labor Secretary Alex Acosta as a judge rips the former U.S. Attorney for striking a 2007 plea bargain with Jeffrey Epstein and not sharing those deliberations with the accusers at the request of Epstein’s lawyers. They react to North Carolina officials ordering a do-over in a North Carolina congressional race after a shady absentee ballot strategy by the Republican campaign. And they react to the Robert Kraft news, which broke as they were recording.
