The Rise & Fall Of Kim Weaver, Iowa's 4th District Democratic Opponent To Steve King

Only a few short months ago, former 4th district Iowa Congressional candidate Kim Weaver seemed to have it all. After raising thousands of dollars in donations as a result of controversial comments & tweets by current 4th district Congressman Steve King, Weaver was poised to have a stronger campaign for a possible Democratic primary & subsequent election campaign. This situation, & Representative King's reputation for being "Iowa's Donald Trump", led many to believe it might finally be enough to elect a Democrat in Iowa's 4th district. However, an investigative report by the Des Moines Register that revealed Weaver's past as an online psychic brought that momentum to an end, & Weaver eventually pulled out of the race citing multiple issues she faced, including eventually placing some of the blame on fellow Democrats.BleedingHeartland.com political blogger Laura Belin spoke withDes Moines FM host Chance Dorlandto try to bring clarity to these & other events that took place during the...

Iowa Puppy Mills Make Humane Society's 'Horrible Hundred' List

Iowa journalist Erin Murphy recently wrote that for the last five years,Iowa has held an outsized place on the national Humane Society’s annual publication of problematic commercial dog breeders. According to Murphy, advocates for humane treatment of animals say Iowa’s role as an apparent safe haven for habitually offending dog breeders — often called puppy mills — has been created by lax animal cruelty laws, weak enforcement of those laws, & powerful farming groups that resist stricter regulations they fear could encroach into agricultural territory.To learn more about Iowa's ranking in the organization's most recently Horrible Hundred report,Des Moines FM host Chance Dorlandspoke withJohn Goodwin, the senior director of theHumane Society of the United States'Stop Puppy Mills campaign.
