Tim White, WPRI-TV's ace investigative reporter, is becoming the man to go to for your comeuppance.
First, it was Congressman David Cicilline, who began his "apology tour" with White, seeking forgiveness for declaring the city of Providence in "excellent" fiscal condition during the 2010 campaign.

Dan Yorke, who is inclined to be a fan of Governor Carcieri, is offering withering criticism of a post-election interview given by the governor to WPRO this morning.
Yorke calls the governor's explanation of GOP losses "complete unadulterated bull-blank."
"The governor is full of blank," Yorke says.
