All stories featuring Frank Caprio

What's in a name?

We've examined two claims made recently by gubernatorial candidates Frank Caprio and Lincoln Chafee. Caprio attacked Chafee for his handling of a 1990s teachers' dispute in Warwick.  We ruled Caprio's claim Half True. Chafee said changing Rhode Island's official name would require amending the U.S. Constitution. We couldn't rule definitively on that, but decided to share our research anyway.
