This is an extended interview with Howie Carr on his new book, The Brothers Bulger: How they terrorized and corrupted Boston for a quarter century.
Among the interesting tidbits, the deal 60 Minutes cut with the publishers of Kevin Weeks book. They claim to not pay their sources, but now we know different. Also of interest was some information about former Mass. governor Bill Weld and his relationship with Billy Bulger and how that may cost him in his campaign for governor this year in New York.
This is a story of political and law enforecement corruption unprecedented in American history. If you are not familiar with the story of the Bulger Brothers, you will be amazed.
Having been a regular caller for a decade to Howie’s afternoon drive show on WRKO, it was a surreal experience to have him in studio as a guest on our show last night.
