This week on Matter of Fact, Soledad O’Brien checks in the University of Alabama law professor Ron Krotoszynski on recourse for Republicans should GOP candidate Roy Moore win the election. After Moore has been accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct when they were teenagers, Krotoszynski says Republicans as a party could face consequences should they seat him in the Senate unchallenged. Then, there are nearly a quarter of million Alabamians unable to vote. Why? They’re ex-felons, and haven’t been able to pay off the remainder of their court fees and fines despite serving their time. Correspondent Jess Gomez visits with a man suing to reclaim his right to vote. And, Anquan Boldin, former wide receiver in the NFL and a co-founder of the Players Coalition, sits down with Soledad O’Brien. Join us for engaging conversation on why some players have called the $90 million donated by the League “hush money,” and the ongoing challenge of confronting racial inequality in America.
