A warm and engaging interview with the Senior Senator from Vermont (and the senior United States Senator). Senator Leahy talks with candor about his long and illustrious career serving the people of Vermont, as the Chittenden County State’s Attorney in the late 60s and early 70s, and then as their representative in government from 1975, when he took office in the Senate. He relates several tales from his long tenure, highlighting some of the legislation he’s championed and some of the historic events he’s participated in. The Senator even talks about his impressive movie credits – and how he donates the proceeds from his screen appearances to his local library. Recorded 10/7/16.
