Capitol Connection #642
Albany, NY – On this week's Capitol Connection Alan Chartock talks to author, actor and activist Malachy McCourt, the Green Party's candidate for New York State governor. McCourt, the brother of Angela's Ashes author Frank McCourt, tells Alan why he's standing for office and what offends him about Eliot Spitzer and John Faso, his Democratic and Republican opponents. The dark horse candidate talks with Alan about his ideas for demilitarizing the National Guard, raising teacher's salaries and making public transit and public colleges free.
