Seattle—The man who schemed to cover up one of Washington's most scandalous affairs spoke Monday night at the UW. Former John Edwards aide Andrew Young talked about ethics in leadership, a topic he says he actually knows a thing or two about.
Andrew first sat down with us exclusively Sunday and talked at length about corruption in Washington DC.
"We have to realize the people we elect, just like sports figures, we raise up. They're human beings. We have to lower our level of expectation and realize they make mistakes too," says Young.
"I think the system is a whole lot better than he thinks it is," says former Washington Governor Daniel J. Evans.
Evans spoke on the panel with Andrew Young. He thinks there are still good people in our nation's capitol.
"When I was back there I think a high percentage of those who served in the Senate were smart, able, and ethical," says Evans. "I do admit there were an awful lot of ethics missing both on his behalf and Edwards behalf during that I must say sleazy approach to the Presidency."
Evans says everyone deserves a second chance, a shot Young is using to work on campaign finance and election reform. It's a new life he hopes will clear his name, and his conscience.
John McKay, the former US District Attorney for Western Washington also spoke on the panel.
