What a peculiar story this is. Apparently, one of Jarrett Barrios’s Senate staffers, along with a lobbyist and another unidentified person,
brushed past [Sen. Richard Moore’s] receptionist and sat down at his chief of staff’s computer and began e-mailing documents back to the staff member’s computer in Barrios office…. Moore said the documents were proposed amendments to the vending machine bill that he had discussed with the lobbyist, but had decided not to offer.
Moore is the chair of the Senate Health Care Committee and at the time was involved in a debate on the school junk food bill referenced in this post. As a result of the incident, further Senate debate on the bill was postponed.
Not exactly the kind of thing a candidate for Middlesex DA wants coming out of his office. I’d expect to see some heads rolling over there pretty quick.
