Mortgage investigation unit: will it work?
Tonight Alyona takes a look at the new economic figures coming out for the US, and take a look at some of the goals that Obama laid out in his State of the Union address, including the new unit to take on mortgage fraud with Reason's Anthony Randazzo. Then she speaks to the first official Occupy Candidate. He's a 29-year-old who considers himself part of the Occupy Philadelphia movement, and he's running for Congress, in the Democratic Primary. And as Republican candidates bemoan the influence of negative campaigning in the elections, we'll speak to someone who's being doing opposition research for years, and has written about this political underworld in a new book. His name is Alan Huffman and he’s the author of “We’re with nobody: Two Insiders Reveal the Dark Side of American Politics”. And of course we will end the show with another dose of Happy Hour.
