Morning Maddow: June 27


It’s Michele Bachmann announcement day (the real one as opposed to this one). 

Bachmann denies benefiting from government aid. And CBS takes her to task on her facts.

Shaky ethics in Iowa presidential politics?

Gay marriage in NJ, too? Gov. Christie is not a fan.

There’s a wildfire heading for Los Alamos National Labs (but they say don’t worry about nuclear material burning). Also, a flood berm collapsed around a Nebraska nuclear plant (but they say don’t worry about the nuclear material getting flooded). And don’t forget there’s a second Nebraska nuke plant surrounded by flood waters. And the AP talks about how so many more of us live near nuke plants these days.

Meet the crisis pregnancy centers mandated under South Dakota’s strict new anti-abortion law. There’s a court hearing today to suspend it.
