Carcieri testimony and related documents show that Carcieri has repeatedly mislead the public about the deal and the timeline, but also shows that has administration’s review of the company was deeply flawed.

In the course of the deposition Carcieri is asked by Attorney Holt representing Wells Fargo, “38 Studios conservatively estimated gross revenues on the first phase of the game at approximately $450 million through 2015, [how] do you see that?” 

The depositions unveil real questions about the state's failure to analyze the 38 Studios' deal.  Carcieri a former top executive at Old Stone Bank and Cookson, served as the chair of the EDC board when they approved the $75 million funding package.
