BOSTON (CBS) – Former House Speaker Salvatore DiMasi is fighting stage four cancer while serving his eight year prison sentence for corruption. Sal’s wife, Debbie, has also undergone treatment for breast cancer, which has made visiting her husband in the North Carolina prison he is currently being held in very tough. Judge Mark Wolf recommended that due to these health concerns, DiMasi should be moved to a facility closer to home, suggesting Devens. But so far, Governor Patrick has managed to ignore the issue. Debbie DiMasi sits down with Dan to talk about why they hope this move comes to fruition.
