Today on the Signorile Show

Yesterday, Judge Vaughn Walker heard the closing arguments from sides om the Prop 8 case in California. We told you about Walker questioning Olsen and Boise in the morning during their statements and according to the LA Times, Walker questioned Charles Cooper, the attorney for the proponents for Prop8, and "continually pressed the sometimes flustered Cooper on just what marriage means and why the state should care about it." We'll discuss the hearing of the closing arguments this afternoon with report Lisa Keen.

Hearings are already underway today at the House Energy and Commerce Committee, where BP CEO Tony Hayward is testifying about what went wrong nine weeks ago when the Deepwater Horizon Rig exploded, causing the worst environmental disaster in US history. We'll go over what legislators have said during the hearing and some of Hayward's response.

There is more in the scandalous life of possibly closeted Illinois Republican Senate candidate Mark Kirk, who has had his military service in question. This time, his teaching career has come under scrutiny. How has he exaggerated his teachings career? We'll go over that, today.
