Seven months after his sudden retirement, former Berkshire District Attorney David Capeless continues to loom over the campaign to replace him. The race began with controversy surrounding how Capeless installed his successor, Paul Caccaviello, and hasn’t cooled down since. The Democratic primary included attacks on his 14-year tenure and even saw Capeless’ wife entering the bitter campaign.
But Capeless himself has been largely silent since stepping down in March. Until now. He spoke with WAMC Friday morning about the race. In the full interview, Capeless gives his impression of Democratic primary winner Andrea Harrington, discusses the likelihood of Caccaviello’s write-in campaign prevailing on November 6th, and more.
