This week, we'll be joined by Rachel Baye from the Center for Public Integrity to talk about the Law Enforcement Alliance of America -- a shadowy dark money group that parachutes into down-ballot races, drops a big chunk of money on some of the nastiest attack ads you'll ever see and then vanishes into the ether.


Then we'll speak with Ed Kilgore -- the Washington Monthly's Political Animal -- about his new book:Election 2014: Why the Republicans Swept the Midterms.

Finally, we'll get an update from Pandagon writer Amanda Marcotte about the latest anti-choice legislation popping up in some deep red states.

This week, we also have a musical theme: Country songs that would make Ted Cruz's head explode.
