Pennsylvania is one of the 11 "swing" states - Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia - where presidential election outcomes are unpredictable.

Mumia Abu-Jamal needs Hep C cure now

KPFA Weekend News, 08.08.2015

Pressure from outside the Pennsylvania State Prison system has finally led to testing that indicates Mumia Abu-Jamal has active Hepatitis C, but the State of Pennsylvania is denying him the new cure. Prison authorities have known that he had Hepatitis C since 2012, when the virus was dormant, but it was  months after he had fallen gravely ill that they finally tested his viral load. Mumia suffers from both eczema and diabetes, both of which can be caused by active Hepatitis C. It is also possible that steroid treatment for eczema caused his diabetes.
