Teachout offers anti-corruption plans

Attorney General candidate Zephyr Teachout (right) sits down for an interview with WBFO Albany Correspondent Karen DeWitt.

Zephyr Teachout, one of four candidates running in the Democratic primary for State Attorney General, says battling corruption in state government would be a top priority, if she’s elected. In the past few months, several former associates of Governor Cuomo have been convicted of bribery and bid rigging, and both former legislative leaders were found guilty on corruption charges.   WBFO Albany Correspondent Karen DeWitt talked to Teachout, about her proposals.

Karen DeWitt is Capitol Bureau Chief for New York State Public Radio, a network of 10 public radio stations in New York State. WBFO listeners are accustomed to hearing DeWitt’s insightful coverage throughout the day, including expanded reports on Morning Edition.
