Peter Lucas of the Lowell Sun did a bang-up job calling out the unholy alliance between the Boston Globe and U.S. Attorney Carmen Diaz’s office. Is the Globe setting her up to be our next governor? Makes sense to me.
I mean really, talk about light weights lining-up for the Democratic nomination. Murray’s out. So we have Grossman, Bump, Martha, (Lately i’ve heard Charley Murphy, could he be another Dukakis ’74)) These three make-up the remaining constitutional officers after Deval, Murray, and Galvin.
Of course if Obama is re-elected Deval may get a cabinet position. Or more likely John Kerry gets one and Deval runs and wins his senate seat. Then say hello to Governor Murray. If of course Murray isn’t forced to decline it or has stepped down by then because the lemming like media is driving the non-story story of the accident and Mike McGlaughlin. (Now that’s my Man of Year. He got Scott Harshbarger to show his true phony colors)
So if Murray isn’t the one to take over the corner office then Secretary of State Bill Galvin will fill…..
Heeey, wait a minute. Bill Galvin becomes governor if Murray’s gone? It’s all starting to come together down. Is Bill Galvin fueling the Tim Murray stake burning?
No, not Billy. He’s not that sneaky. Right?
I say the odds are that Sal has nothing to say to the grand jury. Meaning if he tells the truth there will be no drama. Sure he may fill a nexus or two for some of the elements of the counts the feds are currently preparing. But, unless the reports are false, if Sal was giving-up some big fish (and by giving-up I mean telling fibs to benefit his white hairy ass) he would have been brought to a nice safe house somewhere in east bumfuk where he would be fed veal parm. (and who knows? Maybe that’s where he is and the reports are purposely misleading?)
No, I believe this a squeeze job on the very vulnerable and emotional Sal.
Sal probably knows about every job he got for someone but little knowledge of what was done for other people. Beacon Hill types keep their mouths shut about the favors bank because if they don’t the next thing is pains in the asses are asking them to use up favors on them. Capiche?
You have a friend in the Department-of-Shut-Up-and-Stand-In-Line who does you a favor now and then keep it to yourself.
I don’t see Sal cooperating with the Feds. (by cooperating I mean telling bold face lies so the feds can prove a case beyond a reasonable doubt. It includes testifying at trial and then getting the biggest beating of his life on cross-examination followed by not guilties.)
Also, if the feds push some grey areas on government hirings and job recommendations then they should be prepared for discovery requests for thousands of state and federal employees’ personal records to determine many things including evidence of selective prosecution or perhaps prosecutorial misconduct. An expert in statistics will opine to the court on the sample type and size needed.
The feds should be careful especially because the shit has royally hit the fan in the conviction of former Alaska Senator the late Ted Stevens. According to the recently released court opinion the fascist U.S. Attorney’s office basically framed the guy. His election affected the power structure of the U.S.
Treacherous behavior of which we in Massachusetts should be vigilant in stopping. So I hope most of you will, like me, read the indictments when they come down and separate the cast of characters from the “good”, the “bad”, and the “stupid”.
If we don’t defend the “good” and the “stupid” from the over-reaching federal government who will?
Oh right. The lawyers. But we can help with reputations.
Can the Globe make it any clearer that it is in the tank for Joe O’Donnell and the Suffolk Downs site for the eastern MA casino?
I think it’s been at least ten years since I’ve read anything in the paper about O’Donnell and Joey Fund other than in passing or mentioning of a fund-raiser.
We in Boston know the gut wrenching story well. His son Joey died of cystic fibrosis many years ago at a young age. It’s been written about before. Good for O’Donnell for what he’s doing. (I know, I know, he’s from Everett. But still it’s a good thing)
But all of a sudden last week the Boston Globe gives this well known and old story most of the front page above the fold real estate trumpeting this personal story. And who wrote it? Why the very capable Globe tool Brian McGory.
Jesus Christ boys, how freakin’ obvious can you make it? Will the Saugus selectman and the Malden, Everett, Chelsea, Revere, and Boston City Councillors know they are being played? Who knows? Will the voters of East Boston and Revere? Who knows?
Speaking of our phony local media how about Half-Man George Regan just lying up a storm on Emily Rooney about Peter Lucas and Kevin White. He blatantly made up facts. Walter Robinson called him on it in a Globe column.
Half Man the spinmeister, the public relations genius, the political guru.
And how does he do it?
He Lies baby, he lies.
