Description : Abstract
Saundra Graham (State Representative) speaks at a press conference. Graham defends herself against charges of a conflict of interest involving the housing situation of her son. She talks about her son's situation. Graham acknowledges that she has filed an amended ethics commission form for the House of Representatives. David Williams stands outside Graham's offices in the Massachusetts State House. Williams interviews Gene Hartigan (WEEI) about the Graham story. Hartigan accuses Graham of grandstanding because she has accused the media of racial bias in covering the story. Hartigan questions the facts put forth by Graham and wonders if she perjured herself in front of the rent control board. Hartigan says that he could not reach Graham or members of her family to question them about the story.
