Mary Shannon Little: She Prosecuted the Wedtech Scandal That Sent Two Congressmen to Prison

From a New York Times obit by Sam Roberts headlined “Mary Shannon Little, Who Prosecuted Wedtech Scandal, Dies at 65”:

Mary Shannon Little, who investigated and prosecuted the Wedtech scandal that sent two Bronx congressmen and a borough president to prison on corruption charges and implicated U.S. Attorney General Edward Meese III, died at her home in Brooklyn.

The cause was complications of breast cancer, which had been diagnosed three decades ago, her husband, Edward J.M. Little, said. As Mary Shannon, as she was known then, she had chosen Mr. Little to be her trial partner in the Wedtech case before marrying him.
