Very little is being said about a federal investigation involving city hall in Springfield, Mass. On Sunday, the Springfield Republican reported that the investigation was under way, and the likely focus is a man who has been part of city hall for decades, political consultant Charles "Charlie" Kingston. Stephanie Barry is a reporter with the Republican, and has been following the story. She says Kingston comes from a political family and has been a fixture in city government dating back to the 1960s.
