The Mincing Rascals are John Williams, Steve Bertrand and Patti Vasquez of WGN Radio, and Eric Zorn and Scott Stantis of the Chicago Tribune. They start off the episode by addressing responsibility in the discovery of explosive devices sent to several public figures’ homes and to CNN. Then, they discuss the impact of Governor Bruce Rauner’s latest campaign ad, in which J.B. Pritkzer is depicted as marrying Speaker Mike Madigan. The Rascals debate where the state would be, medically, if marijuana were legalized for recreational use. And, the group decides whether or not NBC Talk Show Host Megyn Kelly should be fired after her recent controversial comment on-air.[audio http://serve.castfire.com/audio/3560447/3560447_2018-10-25-181747.64kmono.mp3]
