Chafee Relied On Official On 38 Studios

Former Governor Lincoln Chafee says he had counted on the head of the Economic Development Corporation to spot problems with the 38 Studios deal.  The deal was executed under his predecessor Donald Carcieri, but Chafee pledged to closely monitor it.  However, Curt Schilling's video game company did not appear on the development panel's agenda until early 2012, when the company was about to collapse.  Chafee says he counted on the executive director of the development panel to alert him to any issues, and hearing none he assumed all was well.
