August 7, 2013

GUESTS: JOHN BAER, DAVE DAVIES & CRAIG MCCOY

Former Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent J. Fumo is back in Philadelphia this week after spending four years in a Kentucky prison for his 137 counts of conspiracy and defrauding the Pennsylvania State Senate and two non-profits for millions of dollars. Part of Fumo’s remaining seven months of sentencing is living in a North Philadelphia halfway house and working at a low-wage, hourly office assistant job at his lawyer’s firm. We’ll talk to three reporters who have covered the former state senator’s colorful career – Philadelphia Daily News political columnist, JOHN BAER, the Philadelphia Inquirer’s investigative reporter CRAIG MCCOY and WHYY’S DAVE DAVIES.
