Following the killing of George Floyd and subsequent protests, Sen. Tim Scott introduced the JUSTICE Act, which aimed to address police abuses and systemic issues affecting at risk communities. Despite Republicans’ offer to allow votes on as many amendments as Democrats wanted, Senate Democrats voted to block the bill.

Sen. Scott joined Dany and Marc to discuss the JUSTICE Act and partisan delays in meaningful police reform. The three also talk about Sen. Scott’s conversation on race with President Trump and the challenge of growing violence in America’s cities.

Sen. Scott was first elected to Charleston County Council, to the South Carolina State House, and the US House of Representatives. In January 2013, he was sworn in as a US Senator from South Carolina, and was re-elected in January 2017.
