The President spoke about the IRS scandal this afternoon. It's so nice to know he will look into it.
Very predictable reaction out of Washington. Democrats are downplaying the scandals, blaming the GOP for lack of funding, or ordering IRS investigations first, or treating Benghazi as if it's no big deal. The GOP needs to be smart and not fall in to this typical Obama playbook.
What's next? Some are calling for a special prosecutor that can be appointed by the attorney general, Eric Holder.
Retiring Fresno State president John Welty called into the show. He will move down to La Quinta and teach at the CSU campus in the desert. He is proud of increasing the academic program and facilities on campus.
His biggest disappointment in regards to the athletic department are the NCAA sanctions and sexual harassment. As far as the cutting of the wrestling team, he says it was unfortunate, but had to be done to meet gender equity guidelines.
He is not involved with in the selection of his successor, but understands the process. He understand the need for confidentiality.

President Obama says he learned about the IRS scandal when the news media reported on it. And the administration is taking a cavalier attitude of the seriousness of the Benghazi attacks. Or peaking into the phone records?
This president is walking down a dirty, dirty path. He said at a news conference "if the IRS...." If? They did it. They admitted it.
The issue of human trafficking is for real and does take place in the Valley. Ronna Bright, project manager of Central Valley Against Human Trafficking joined the show, as well as a victim by the name of Jamelia.
Jamelia came to America from Belize at the age of 12. She came under the promise of a better life and an adoption of an American woman. Unfortunately, it did not turn out that way. She was forced to be a servant. To cook and clean and provide child care. Her freedoms, such as eating and using a phone, were restricted. Police weren't helping. She then called 2-1-1 and was connected with Ronna.
The next day, Ronna with law enforcement rescued Jamelia. "It felt like someone took a house of me," Jamelia said. She found the courage to get out because of her own children. Hearing the words "I'm coming" gave Jamelia the hope to get on with her life.
Jamelia is about to attain her GED and plans to attend Fresno City College.
State senate candidate Leticia Perez apologized for using religious imagery in campaign materials
We are not to big on jumping on the bandwaggon, but here we go...
Could this be an impeachable offense? George Will said so on "This Week."
And the other scandal, Benghazi. Pat Smith, the mother of slain Sean Smith, appeared on "Huckabee:"
And what about Hillary Clinton and her future? She seems to be gearing for a 2016 presidential run. The strategy: deny and delay and hope you forget.
Back to the state senate district 16 race. Frontrunning democrat Leticia Perez agreed to return on Thursday. Leading republican Andy Vidak? Who knows what his excuse will be this time?
Two more democrats are running and joined the show today: Francisco Ramirez and Paulina Ramirez. On minimum wages, Francisco is against it, Paulina is for it.
We also touched on condoms for kids, abortion rights and more.
