Eliot Ness, savior or baloney?

A funny battle has shaped up over the legacy of Eliot Ness. On one side, we have Sens. Durbin and Kirk, who want to rename the ATF building after him. On the other, we have two aldermen, who oppose that effort. We speak with authors who are experts on the subject, to discuss the reality of Ness’ legacy. Douglas Perry is the author of Eliot Ness: The Rise and Fall of an American Hero. Jonathan Eig wrote Get Capone. Photo: Facebook - Eliot Ness
