Politics Hour Extra
Vincent Schiraldi, Director of the D.C. Department of Youth and Rehabilitation Services, announced this week that he was leaving D.C. to take over as head of the New York City probation department. He looks back over his 5-year term in D.C. and discusses his feelings about how the Washington Post’s coverage of his work may have sent a message to other government employees to “lie low” and not push as aggressively for reform.
