After a much deserved week off, Orange State was back in full force on Friday, bringing you your weekly News Fix as per usual.
Rashaud started the show with the headlines, including some about Facebook acting as a alibi, Burger King having some issues with it's franchises, AND BALLOON DAD PLEADING GUILTY TO THE HOAX!! (Grant & Matt called it!!) Check out the video of his court appearance as well:
But now to our big story for the show: An election flub in NY's 23rd District. Apparently, Bill Owens' win last week wasn't as definitive as we thought, and Doug Hoffman may have actually won some districts that were claimed for Owens! On top of all of that, Bill Owens got sworn in to the House of Representatives the Friday after the election and helped pass the House Healthcare Bill that Saturday! Was that legal? Will there be ramifications? Check out the podcast to find out!
The heated Orange State of Disarray battle between Matt & Grant waged on with some unbelievable stories from CJ & Ashley: A quadriplegic getting a hunting license, inmates being mailed marijuana, and more!
Matt brought in the CNY News headlines about Gov. David Patterson's push for a gay marriage bill in NY and some issues that are facing the changing license plates. In addition, Jordan presents in a news package about the NY State Field Band Competition, check it out on the podcast!!
And to wrap it all up, Jim came in to give us some Audacity of Dopes, and this week's got an all-star line-up A Man found in ditch with Moonshine & Rifle, Octomom's TV Show, & more.
It was another great episode of Orange State! Check out the podcast in iTunes & thanks for listening!
