Tenther Tuesday Episode 32: Asset Forfeiture is Theft

Today is the 446th day that the GOP has failed to repeal Obamacare. Meanwhile, federal agents, along with state and local police across the country, are still taking people’s stuff without due process. Jeff Sessions even doubled-down on asset forfeiture in a policy directive issued last July. But some states are fighting back by reforming asset forfeiture laws and closing a loophole that allows police to circumvent strict state forfeiture laws by passing cases off to the feds. In this episode of Tenther Tuesday, Michael Boldin and Michael Maharrey talk about it. They also share some important news on efforts to push back against the federal surveillance state.
