Today on the Signorile Show

Guest / 2:30pm EST - Tara Borelli, staff attorney in the western regional office of Lambda Legal, joins us today to update us on Golinski v. Office of Personnel Management, in which she is co-counsel for Karen Golinski, a married lesbian federal court employee who is suing so her wife can receive health benefits.

Guest / 3:30pm EST - Rachel Shtier, author of The Steal: A Cultural History Of Shoplifting, joins us this afternoon to talk about her new book which tracks the fascinating history of one of the most ancient of crimes.

Guest / 4:30pm EST -We've talked a lot about married bi-national couples, where one spouse is facing potential deportation because they cannot be sponsored for citizenship under federal law. Henry Velandia was one of those people, but in a surprising turn of events, the Department of Homeland Security decided to drop the deportation efforts against him last week. Henry Velandia and his husband, Josh Vandiver, join us to discuss his case.
