Honest Man: The Life of R. Budd Dwyer - Now on Amazon Prime

https://smile.amazon.com/Honest-Man-...rds=Honest+man

I found this to be a fascinating documentary about R. Budd Dwyer, the Pennsylvania State Treasurer who was accused, indicted and convicted for corruption in 1987, then subsequently committed suicide during a televised press conference. It features interviews with close family members as well as friends and colleagues of Dwyer's. The televised press conference featuring his death is also shown.

The film seems to have the slant that Dwyer was innocent, and makes a fairly good case for that position, but who knows? A good film about a depressing case.

I saw this years ago, and yes, Dwyer comes across much better than I thought he would.
