Fellow Soldier Seeks Justice for #MarineHeldInMexico

A Mexican federal judge sent Andrew Tahmooressi back to prison after the U.S. Marine sergeant made his first official courtroom appearance since being locked up more than three months ago for accidentally crossing the border with guns in his pickup truck. The 26-year-old veteran of two tours in Afghanistan was finally able to tell his story to a judge, after his case had been delayed by both Mexico's unpredictable legal system and his own trouble settling on a lawyer. Joining us to discuss the issue is Andrew Bartholomew, who served with Sgt. Tahmooressi in Afghanistan.

Unions Hit But Not Fatally

Public Sector unions have taken a hit, but not a fatal one with yesterday's Supreme Court decision signaling a distaste for state laws requiring public sector workers to pay union dues. But the High Court stopped short of sweeping them away. Joining us this morning on the Big Story is Dr. Norman Soloman , a business and legal expert who has studied this case.

VA Hospital Workers Claim Retaliation for Blowing Whistle on the Horrors They Saw

When Valerie Riviello, a nurse at a Veterans Affairs facility in New York, saw the clinic restrain a sexual assault survivor to a bed for seven consecutive hours, she released the woman.

The next day, Ms. Riviello said, she was removed from her post as senior nurse manager and given a full-time desk job that prohibited her from contact with patients. She eventually was reprimanded and is facing a 30-day unpaid suspension for releasing the woman.

Now, Ms. Riviello is one of more than 50 whistleblowers who say the Veterans Affairs Department retaliated against them for trying to do their jobs.

Jacqueline Klimas of the Washington Times joins us for more on the situation.

    What happened to the news? It is sounding like a conservative talk show without the talk. We may have to change stations in the morning to get local news. Do not like it at all. We would tune into a talk show if we wanted to hear the rants.

    Your news is not news it is conservative talk show commentary and often silly banter.
    Cant we just get the news?

      @Greg Rosa I listen most mornings and hear news. If you're listening after 9a.m., guess what? That IS a conservative talk show! Before 9, it's mostly news and some interviews, editorials and some "banter." Maybe if you want boring news you should be listening to NPR, or something. You can pretend that liberal news doesn't have editorials, commentary or "banter," if you like. KSRO's new programming is WAY more entertaining than it was before.
