Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

4:05pm ET - Only a few days ago both the DOJ and FBI acknowledged that its forensic experts provided faulty and exaggerated testimony favoring government prosecutors for two decades by pushing the use of Microscopic hair comparison as valid evidence in trials despite the fact that in 2009, the National Academy of Science called the practice “highly unreliable”.  These revelations have created a national scandal that’s propelled the largest post-conviction review in the country’s history.  Joining us today to discuss the practice and the “science” behind it which has proved to be wrong but not before hundreds of men had been convicted or even executed is Kate Briquelet a national reporter for The Daily Beast.  You can also follow Kate on twitter.

4:35pm ET - Early last summer Investigative Journalist Alan Berlow began making contributions to the National Rifle Association to see where his money would end up. And according to his report for Yahoo News some of the money quickly found its way into the account of the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund, the NRA’s political action committee despite the fact that he never knowingly contributed to the NRA-PVF.  Which according to some of the nation’s top experts on federal election law may be a big problem for the NRA because, this is illegal.  Alan joins us today to discuss the NRA’s possible illegal fund raising and political spending.
