Corrupticut: A Look Into Connecticut's Politics

Episode 1: History

A CPBN Media Lab Web original, Corrupticut highlights the most memorable scandals of Connecticut's storied political history. These crimes and offenses have consisted of everything from accepting bribes, to tax fraud, to child sex abuse, to illegal use of campaign funds.

In this first episode we concentrate on the state's political history. We broke into the CPTV archive for interviews with historian and acclaimed author Chris Collier and William Pape II, the publisher of the Waterbury American. They recount the tales of Silas Deane and Sherwood Rowland.
