Episode Description:

Host Veronica Andrews discusses the elements of the book, Wired:The Shocking True Story of Political Corruption and the FBI Informant Who Risked Everything to Expose, with author Paul Caranci. It was an explosive case of political corruption that rocked a small town, an entire state and drew headlines across the nation. Three sitting councilmen had been arrested and accused of executing a scheme to extort bribes. And once the dust settled, as many as ten officials were caught up in a scandal that swirled around nearly everyone in the suburban New England town that some called, “the most corrupt town in America.” Yet had it not been for one man who worked undercover with the FBI for seventeen months – a career politician with thirty years’ experience railing against corruption – the scheme may never have been revealed. In Wired, the author shares his own harrowing personal account of how he gambled his thirty-year political career, his reputation, and his family’s safety in his quest to restore good, honest government to a community that needed it most. But Wired is more than just the tale of one valiant act. It is an exhaustively researched and detailed journey through the ins and outs of gritty small-town politics, behind the scenes dealings, and the corrupt activities that obscure local politics in the modern era. It’s the story of something that could happen in any town in America, and regrettably, probably does.
