http://www.boston.com/dailynews/249/region/Providence_s_longtime_Mayor_Ci:.shtml I thought he'd walk for many reasons, but maybe not, save for an 11th hour deal. Cianci's always been a fascinating character, and did steer a lot of positive changes to the city. For those unfamiliar with Providence, it really has risen in the past 10-20 years to be a funky city that not many people know about. Many in greater Boston don't even acknowledge it exists, which is a shame. However, if you break laws, which in one case the court says he did, there are consequences.
