Andrea Campbell Reacts to Boston Police Union Tweets

Earlier this week, the Boston Police Patrolmen's Association got into a heated exchange with Andrea Campbell on Twitter. The exchange began after the Boston Herald reported that Campbell was holding up $1.2 million in police funds.

In response, Campbell tweeted that she was still waiting to hear from the BPPA "on why they enabled and elevated an accused child molester," referring to the former BPPA President Patrick Rose, who has been charged with molesting multiple children from as far back as the mid-1990s.

The BPPA then replied that "people who live in glass houses" should refrain from talk about "enabling criminals," which was widely seen as targeting Campbell's brother, Alvin R. Campbell Jr., who has been charged with multiple accounts of sexual assault.

Boston mayoral candidate and City Councilor Andrea Campbell joins us to discuss the exchange.
