Constitutional scholar David Shestokas discusses the sordid history of constitutional malfeasance and how it puts the future of the American Republic in peril. Shestokas, the author of Constitutional Sound Bites and Creating the Declaration of Independence, brings wit and wisdom to this timely topic.
