Westfield State President Evan Dobelle Responds To Allegations Of 'Lavish' Spending
Westfield State University president Evan Dobelle is in some hot water.
Dobelle has been accused of using university funds to pay for lavish trips abroad, limo rides and designer clothes.
For six weeks, Dobelle has remained silent amid a barrage of bad press. But on Monday, he finally spoke out, two days before the university faculty holds a no-confidence vote. WGBH contributor Peter Kadzis sat down with Dobelle and spoke with him about the allegations brought against him by the university's board.
