EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. —
Former Rhode Island Gov. Don Carcieri says he’ll soon break his silence on the failed $75 million state loan guarantee for former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling’s video game company.
NBC 10’s Bill Rappleye spoke with Carcieri at the Republican National Convention Thursday night about the former governor’s role in the project.
Carcieri said he would speak with NBC 10 after Labor Day when he returned to Rhode Island about why he pushed for the loan guarantee and the reasoning behind the deal with 38 Studios.
The company laid off all its employees and filed for bankruptcy earlier this year, likely leaving the state on the hook for more than $100 million.
Carcieri has so far not commented publicly on the failure.
