Today on the Signorile Show...

3:35pm ET - Throughout the week, we've been discussing a horrific story out of Philadelphia, where a gay couple found themselves beaten by a group of people, leaving one with his jaw wired shut.  Yesterday, three people, including the daughter of a Bucks County Police Chief, turned themselves in for the alleged assault; however, as vile as this attack was, Pennsylvania doesn't have hate crime legislation protecting LGBT people.  PA State Senator Jim Ferlo, who has come out openly as gay in the wake of these crimes, is sponsoring a hate crimes bill in the state and joins us today to discuss it.

4:35pm ET - Paul Blumenthal of the Huffington Post returns to the show to speak with us about where billionaires are spending their money as we get to the home stretch of the 2014 Mid-Term Elections.  According to his latest piece, while Billionaires have donated to both parties, a large number of money they, including that of the Koch Brothers  is going to the Republican Party in order to help them take control of the Senate.  We'll get the states and the amounts from him today.
