Bill Maher has said that he'll release videos of GOP Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell's appearances on "Politically Incorrect" until she agrees to come on his show.
Here's a good one: In a 1997 episode of "Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher", O'Donnell, Sen. Al Franken, Bill Maher (and actor Rich Schroeder and Star Parker) debate a provision in the Welfare Bill demanding that recipients be taught that sex outside of marriage is harmful. Franken starts things off with a disclosure, admitting that he has, in fact, had premarital sex. The guests go on to spar about sex, condoms, abstinence education and welfare. Maher wonders if telling Americans not to have sex constitutes social engineering.

I'm Kali Holloway and I'm Digging for Stories Where the Corporate Media Doesn't Go
Hi AlterNet Readers,
I’m Kali, AlterNet investigative reporter. Trolls have made stalking, harassment and intimidation an everyday hazard of going online. I’ve spent weeks in the troll cesspools to understand how they operate and why.
Trolls target women, people of color, LGBT folks, Jews and Muslims. And they love Donald Trump.
Trump’s racism, misogyny and hatred has united neo-Nazis and women-haters with the goal of getting him elected and spreading their toxic ideas.
With backing from supporters like you, I have the freedom to go deep into dark topics like this one -- and expose things we all should know.
We need to raise $15,000 in the next two weeks to hit our goal and continue this necessary work, both mine and the rest of our team.
