Ack, Agent, you really dont have the story quite right but that's fine.
It is worth noting that the RI govt staffer who actually pushed the details of the deal along is also gone from govt. So there's no one to pin blame on except the current gov, who had nothing whatsoever to do with the deal.
The only "good" thing out of this is that RI'ers will never forget Carcieri for creating a mountain of debt that taxpayers have to pay.
Chafee may be a blue-blooded airhead, but Carcieri has proven repeatedly that he is bigoted and genuinely moronic.
