PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island Attorney General Peter Kilmartin says he won’t recuse himself from a criminal investigation of failed video game company 38 Studios even though he voted for the deal as a state representative.

Kilmartin told WPRI-TV (https://bit.ly/1YN05Wa) on Tuesday that once-secret documents released last week prove that the General Assembly had no knowledge of the now-infamous deal with 38 Studios, led by ex-Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling.

Kilmartin says if 38 Studios had been a “great success,” people would be asking different questions.

The state filed suit after 38 Studios went bankrupt in 2012, two years after the company accepted a $75 million state loan guarantee.

Court documents unsealed Thursday reveal that top House officials negotiated the deal behind closed doors before bringing it to the General Assembly for approval.
