“This is about pulling back the curtain on what U.S. presidential politics are all about.”
That’s a quote from Andrew Young, the former advisor to U.S. Senator John Edwards who spoke to a packed house Monday, April 19 at Kane Hall.
The panel discussion, titled “Ethics in Leadership,” also featured Governor Dan Evans, UW Professor J. Patrick Dobel and John McKay of Seattle University Law. Young spoke for about 30 minutes, reflecting on his time as Edwards’ right-hand man and his fateful decision to cover up the affair that brought down the former presidential candidate.
