Finneran Expected to Plead Guilty

Today, former House Speaker Tom Finneran is expected to plead guilty in federal court to one count of obstruction of justice. It's a change from his original plea and is reportedly part of a deal in which federal prosecutors will drop three counts of perjury.

The charges stem from Finneran's involvement in redrawing voting districts in 2001 and then allegedly lying about it before a judge. WBUR's Monica Brady-Myerov reports on reaction.
