(Studio: Judy Woodruff) The background to Robert Vesco's flight from the US to avoid criminal charges, including an illegal contribution to the reelection campaign of President Richard Nixon, reviewed. Interview held with "Vanity Fair" editor/writer Ann Louise Bardach and Vesco's son Dan. [From Los Angeles, BARDACH - says Vesco has a mystique as a contemporary Jesse James, who has been on the lam for 25 years; explains why political and economic issues in Cuba have led to Vesco's declining value to the Cuban government.] [Dan VESCO - says his father has been in relative seclusion and incarceration in Cuba for the last year at the order of Cuban leader Fidel Castro.] [BARDACH - says Vesco's business falling out with a partner led to his downfall.] [VESCO - outlines the extent of the investigation of his father by the Cuban government; doubts that Vesco would be extradited to the US.]
