Much of what I know first hand about Hevesi comes from his many appearances on Brian's program. One never knows what lurks in a man's heart, but whatever his flaws, I never took him for a kickback hungry crook. Brian has interviewed him one-on-one; what is his impression of the man?

I seem to recall that years ago Hevesi passed himself off as a VERY moral and scrupulous person. Was that all part of a long con or was Hevesi ever a straight shooter?

Please ask your guest what is the likely prison term for Hevesi's crime. The old saying comes to mind, "If you're going to steal, use a pen not a gun."

So what was Bill White's (formerly of the Intrepid Sea/Air/Space Museum) role in the Hevesi case? What is he alleged to have done and why wasn't he prosecuted?
