Ethics Complaints Against Lt. Governor Swift

NPR's Tovia Smith reports from Boston on ethics complaints against the Massachusetts Lieutenant Governor. Jane Swift may have violated the state's conflict-of-interest law by asking her staff to babysit and move her family to a new house. But some say Swift is being made a scapegoat by conservative groups, who would have applauded a male official for the same things for which she is being criticized.
