Watch the video — Carcieri talks 38 Studios on Channel 12

Sep 13, 2012

Former Governor Don Carcieri defends himself in his first interview since the meltdown of 38 Studios, taking responsibility for approving the deal, but questioning the followup after he left office.

The project became a signature for Carcieri toward the end of his two terms in office. Former state Economic Development Corporation director Saul Kaplan has described how he struggled to get legislative support for a much smaller business-loan package than the $125 million deal that helped attract 38 Studios.
