VIDEO: Mandates return, Ivey’s frustration with the unvaccinated is shared across the nation, U.S. Capitol riot hearing begins and more on Alabama Politics This Week …

Radio talk show host Dale Jackson and political consultant Mecca Musick take you through Alabama’s biggest political stories, including:

— Are states heading towards vaccine mandates after President Joe Biden told federal employees they have to get shots?

— Is Governor Kay Ivey’s decision to lean on vaccines and away from masks going to convince people to get vaccinated?

— Have we learned anything from the beginning of the inquiry into the U.S. Capitol riot?

Jackson and Musick are joined by former U.S. Attorney Jay Town to discuss the issues facing the state of Alabama this week.

Jackson closes the show with a “Parting Shot” directed at the people implying U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) wearing a bulletproof vest on January 6 is some implication of guilt. He argues everyone knows it is because Brooks has received threats for years and was almost killed at a baseball field during baseball practice with his Republican colleagues.
