Capitol Connection #644


Albany, NY – Alan Chartock talks to embattled New York State Comptroller Alan Hevesi, who has watched his easy run for re-election turn into a horse race in the wake of a scandal involving a state-funded security detail for his wife. Hevesi explains the death threats and other incidents that were the rationale for the security precautions and the misunderstanding that he says is responsible for the current flap. He also shares what he thinks the achievements of his office have been since his election in 2002.
