American hearthrob, snappy dresser, and friend to kittens, Rob Kendall returned to the Hammer and Nigel show for another rousing edition of “Off The Rails.”

This week, Rob takes on Governor Eric Holcomb – a liberal who masquerades as a Republican.

Here’s what’s happening, according to one of the remaining reporters at the Indianapolis Star:

The Indiana Senate voted to amend a hate crimes proposal Tuesday, scrapping from the bill all protected characteristics, including gender identity, race and sexual orientation.

The amendment to Senate Bill 12 removed the list of specific characteristics and added that judges can consider bias more generally as an aggravating circumstance when weighing a stricter sentence for a crime.

Gov. Eric Holcomb said the amended bill “does not get Indiana off the list of states without a bias crime law.”

“We have a long way to go, a lot of work to do, and fortunately the time yet still to do it,” Holcomb said. “I will continue to fight for the right ultimate outcome for our state and citizens this year so we’re not right back here in the same place next year.”

Rob offers his response to “High-Tax Holcomb” in the following clip:
