PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – Critics of R.I. Secretary of State A. Ralph Mollis and Attorney General Peter Kilmartin on Tuesday seized on Target 12′s new findings about possible undisclosed lobbying by 38 Studios insiders to argue they’ve failed to scrutinize the deal closely enough.

“It’s unfortunate that it took an investigative report by WPRI’s Tim White to get the secretary of state to do the work needed to protect taxpayers,” CJ Macklin, campaign manager for Cumberland mayor and Mollis rival Dan McKee, said in a statement.

  1. Open Your Eyes says:

    If lobbyists are to wear badges while on the floor at the State House why didn’t Senator Hodgson report Michael Corso to Secratery State Mollis for not wearing a badge. He was not registered.

    Dawson thank Tim White for you doing your job as well.

  2. Really?!? says:

    Dawson Hodgson is more concerned with getting press attention than getting results. He’s been up there since 2010 and has nothing to show for it. Being disliked by your colleagues is not the same as being a political outsider. Where has he been? When has he stood up?

    1. That's a wrap says:

      From what I have heard of him so far, he definitely would turn the AG’s office into a reality show.

  3. B says:

    Sadly, it seems Mollis has revealed himself to be part of the Problem, and not part of the Solution.

  4. Bill Palazzo says:

    AG Peter Kilmartin should resign and give the job back to Patrick ‘Spiderman’ Lynch whom we all knew was completely incompetant and had his brother, Bill, ride shotgun for him.

  5. Good Government says:

    Anyone care to check campaign contributions for a connection to Corso and/or 38 Studios? I’m sure it would be interesting – after all this is RI politics.

  6. C says:

    Especially Mollis who had plenty of time in North Providence to master the craft – I’m sure there will be a connection somewhere.These guys are all crooks and we pay the price.
