Schilling on Chafee: ‘I Think He had an Agenda and Executed it’
Friday, June 22, 2012
Former Red Sox ace Curt Schilling is again pointing his finger at Governor Chafee for allowing his video game company to collapse.
"I think he had an agenda and executed it,” Schilling said.
Schilling acknowledged that he regrets not informing his employees that the company was struggling, but said all conversations regarding future investments stopped once Chafee began commenting on the company.
Schilling, who claims he poured more than $50 million of his own money into the company, said he realized “something evil” was happening when news broke that his company attempted to pass a bad check to cover the $1.125 million due to the Economic Development Corporation (EDC). He said the EDC was made aware the account had insufficient funds and went to the media.
Schilling suggested Chafee, who was opposed to giving Schilling a $75 million loan guarantee to bring his company to Rhode Island in 2010, had political motives with his comments regarding the company.
“This is an I told you so, absolutely, “ Schilling said.
