Analysis: Wilkerson Sued Over Campaign Finances

State Senator Dianne Wilkerson, a Boston Democrat, is again facing charges of financial wrong-doing. In a lawsuit filed yesterday, Attorney General Tom Reilly and the State Office of campaign and Political Finance charged Wilkerson on seven counts, including failure to report more than $25,000 in campaign contributions, and refusing to explain more than $18,000 in personal reimbursements.

For a look behind the allegations, Bob Oakes speaks with Craig Sandler, the owner of Statehouse News Service in Boston.
