PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – Former Gov. Donald Carcieri says he accepts responsibility for pushing through a $75 million taxpayer-guaranteed loan to 38 Studios but still has serious questions about whether there was adequate oversight of the situation at Curt Schilling’s game company once he left office.
Carcieri broke his silence about the Schilling deal on Thursday in an exclusive interview for Sunday’s edition of WPRI 12′s Newsmakers, after otherwise declining to discuss the matter since 38 Studios’ problems burst into public view on May 14. “I will take responsibility for approving the deal,” he said.
