The Wrap-Up: January 9, 2012

Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ)
This weekend, Congresswoman Gabby Giffords was on-hand to mark yesterday being the 1 year anniversary of the shooting that took place at Tuscon, Arizona that claimed 6 lives. 

The GOP candidates faced a double-header of debates this weekend and used the opportunity to spread more political falsehoods.

In Sunday morning's debate, Mitt Romney says he doesn't discriminate...except when he discriminates.

Despite the positive jobs numbers from December, Romney continues to say President Obama has made the economy worse.

Some of the contribution numbers have come in on a race that will pit the former first lady of Iowa against one of the House's more outspoken conservatives.

Rachel Maddow
The FBI has finally done something that should have been done ages ago.

Just because Rick Santorum doesn't yell and shout does not make him any less an extremist. He is, in many ways, quite extreme.

I'm sure there are more than just 5 myths on taxes here in the U.S., but here are the big ones.

NFL players are fighting Indiana's proposed anti-labor bill.

The New Jersey state legislature is set to introduce a marriage equality bill in the new session.

And lastly, Rachel Maddow showed up to talk politics with Jimmy Fallon. Hilarity ensued (especially at the end of clip 2).
