Author examines political power struggle in new book

BITTEN-BY-TIGER-BOOOK.jpg

In all of New York's long history, only one governor was impeached and removed from office: William Sulzer. If the name doesn't mean much to you, author Jack O'Donnell has the book for you in Bitten By The Tiger. WBFO's Mike Desmond spoke with O'Donnell about his look at a century-old Albany power struggle.
