From Youtube


This is the only copy of Budd Dwyer's press conference that is known to exist. During the making of "Honest Man", a feature length film about Dwyer's life, I attempted to acquire footage of his entire speech (Just the speech, NOT his suicide) but was denied by every news station in Pennsylvania. Oddly enough his suicide was, and still is, fully available to license from several news archives for a fee.

To me this is a testament to the power of Dwyer's words and a reminder of the continued cowardice by the local media within Pennsylvania. I'm proud to release this footage publicly in its most raw form and I will continue to update it if any additional material is released. The full text of his speech, as well as other documents, is available to download at
