Mark Lane offers to introduce Jim Garrison to "Mr. Candy"
Updated: Jul 30
Yes, and for $25,000 "Mr. Candy" would deliver information that would tie Clay Shaw with Jack Ruby. Here is Mark Lane's letter to Jim Garrison:
I don't think Garrison met "Mr. Candy." Anybody with a modicum of intelligence would have told him to get lost. But, not Mark Lane. He actually wanted to set up a meeting.
And, what a missed opportunity for a Mark Lane book about the Jim Garrison investigation! It would have been a blast. Of course Lane would have written an honest appraisal of what went on in New Orleans, no?
