Ari Berman on the new Jim Crow | GOP desperate to move on from Jan 6

Ari Berman, a reporter at Mother Jones and author of Give Us the Ballot: The Modern Struggle for Voting Rights in America, joins us to talk about how Republicans are capitalizing on Donald Trump's lies about the 2020 election being stolen to redouble their efforts to make it more difficult to vote-- and why those efforts might just fail. 
 
Then we welcome Salon columnist (and OG blogger) Heather "Digby" Parton to the show to talk about, among other things, Republican efforts to deflect from the Insurgency of Dunces and stymie a 9/11-style commission to investigate the roots of the attack.
