Left of Lansing Podcast Episode 9–In Defense of AG Dana Nessel; Interview with Erin Roberts from MCEDSV on Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Here’s this week’s Left of Lansing Podcast!

In this episode, I give a defense for Michigan’s passionate progressive attorney general, Dana Nessel. She’s got the conservative wing going insane with insane threats of impeachment!

Why? All because she’s doing her job by protecting the Constitutional rights of ALL Michiganders. And I ask Republican state Rep. Beau LaFave to appear on a future podcast to discuss his threat to impeach Nessel, and also his bill to end so-called sanctuary cities.

I then talk with Erin Roberts, who is the Senior Program Director with the Michigan Coalition to End Domestic and Sexual Violence. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and we talk about ways people can get help, and what’s being done or not done to reduce sexual assault incidents.

In the “Last Call,” I highlight how Michigan Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Dingell pushed to add a provision to the Violence Against Women Act, which seeks to prevent those convicted of domestic assault from purchasing guns. VAWA passed the U.S. House, but the Senate may try to block Dingell’s provision from passing.

There’s a recent Michigan State University study that supports Dingell’s argument.
