Today on The Signorile Show!

4:05pm ET - On a quiet street in Tallahassee Florida there sits a plain brick-fronted tract house that looks like many other middle-class homes in Florida’s capital, in fact if it weren’t for the two names on the deed this house would not even deserve a mention.  However, it is owned by Marco Rubio, U.S. senator and would-be presidential candidate and David Rivera, the scandal-plagued former congressman currently under investigation in a federal campaign-finance probe and their co-ownership of this property has become something of a financial and political liability for Rubio heading into the 2016 election.  Joining us today to discuss the relationship between Rubio and Rivera and what it says about the senator’s finances and judgment is Marc Caputo, the senior political reporter for POLITICO.  You can also follow Marc on twitter.

4:35pm ET - As a result of marriage equality spreading across the country conservatives have begun pushing so called “Religious Freedom Restoration Acts” through state legislatures, which allow for the legalized discrimination of LGBT people under the false flag of protection for religious freedom.  However in Georgia, Legislators are poised to pass the nation’s harshest “religious freedom” law, which would allow not only discrimination but also judicial obstruction and even domestic violence and child abuse.   Joining us today to discuss the bill and explain why despite being far worse than Arizona’s notorious “Turn the Gays Away” bill, the Georgia bill has attracted far less attention from national advocacy groups and businesses, is Jay Michaelson who wrote all about the law for The Daily Beast.  You can also follow Jay on twitter.
