H. Philip West, executive director of Common Cause of Rhode Island, however, believes Rhode Islanders are too tolerant of corruption. West fears that Cianci, in part because he is so articulate, “will become an annoying, and I would say corrosive, influence again, and it would be better for Providence if he decided to retire to Florida, but who knows if that will happen. Once he’s back, if he’s vocal and visible, it will make it harder for Cicilline to press forward,” because of how so many people view Cianci as a charming rogue.
