Here’s wishing that Elizabeth Warren would stop mentioning the Boston Globe in her campaign. She can say “this was confirmed by the press” or “independent economists”. Scotty doesn’t mention the wing nuts behind the organizations that prove him right. There’s a reason.
Now that Scott’s made campaign managers an issue it’s time to bring Eric Fehrnstrom’s name and reputation to the front lines. Why would Scott rely so heavily on a person that proudly conducts his professional life like an A-1 amoral, unethical, repulsive, loathsome, malicious, depraved and vile scumbag?
Voters should be reading and hearing more and more about Eric “See You in Hell” Fehrnstrom and how he operates. He’s an intriguing guy who voters could find fascinating and therefore pay attention to the stories. Karl Rove is boring. Eric is not.
Who is this guy? He’s the puppeteer of Mitt and Scott. People need to know.
Decent people will take Doug Rubin over See-you-in-hell Fehrnstrom any day.
Is it me or does Scott seemed rushed and a little annoyed when answering questions in the debate? It’s true for interviews which have follow-up questions and follow-ups to follow-ups. You know, like an interview.
That is the setting that needs to be forced on Scott. Get him to explain himself beyond the soundbites. He doesn’t like it and it shows.
Still waiting for the Jack Cinquegrana report the SJC commissioned almost a year ago. You remember? Another quid pro quo between our high court justices and the New York Times’ Sulzberger family in return for the jobs they gained by rubbing out Jack O’Brien at Probation.
The next Spotlite series soon after the Probation/Jack O’Brien series was a Fourth of July like fireworks display about a dog (not a pit bull) biting a man. The liberal Globe was upset that out of every 20 people arrested for drunk driver one eventually ends up being found not guilty by a judge. One in twenty. Five percent. Sounds about right. Especially in a country with a “beyond reasonable doubt” standard.
Like all Spotlite series the first story appeared on a Sunday. And just like the Probation stories the SJC appointed a special investigator with subpoena powers on Monday. WTF?
So anyway, where’s the report? Also isn’t Cinquegrana, Choate Hall and Stewart, and the SJC in violation of an number of judicial and legal canons of ethics by creating the appearance of a special relationship between them? Especially when Choate Hall is doing this for free.
BTW – the best thing that came out of the Globe drunk driving series was the admission by by the State Police that unlike many other states they do not have dash board cameras filming OUI stops.
Why? Well because, according to the state police spokesman. ‘it results in not guilties’. Huh? Truth be damned.
Unfortunately because of all the quid pro quos going around the Globe didn’t report this little admission as a civil rights issue. What bothers me is it appears they didn’t see the problem with the statement. Otherwise they would have pounced on it or not printed it.
Who knows? Too many fucking layers with these people.
I’m rooting for Tisei.
Like everyone on Beacon Hill I am anxiously awaiting the feds next move on the Probation investigation.
I wouldn’t expect any news, if there is news, until after the election?
Gonna be interesting no matter which way they come down.
BTW, my reading of the state and federal indictments against O’Brien seem very weak. The vagaries oh the statues especially with the facts behind each indictment may result in the cases never getting to a jury.
O’Brien has federal defenders representing him at the Moakley Courthouse. Not some hit or miss guy from Quincy. He will have top grade representation who will hold the feds’ feet to the fire.
Credit where credit it due. Yeah Dan Rea bugs me, but he is one of the few in the press who works at spreading the word of the wrongfully convicted. That goes a long way.
