Winston Churchill Was A Great Statesman But Apparently A Bad Customer

LINDA WERTHEIMER, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Linda Wertheimer. So, Winston Churchill, a great statesman but apparently a credit risk, the archives of London tailor Henry Poole and Company reveal Churchill racked up an $18,000 tab.
