Obama just nominated three for federal judgeships in Massachusetts.
One of them is Juliette Kayyem’s husband, David Barron, a Harvard Law School professor (HLS friends say that he is incredible). He would replace Judge Boudin on the First Circuit.
That seems to be a problem for her campaign, as a confirmation inquiry could happen at the same time as the Governor’s race heats up. There would be a lot for the Repubs to seize on.
Also, shame on the Globe for not catching that connection before publishing, especially since Kayyem was a Globe columnist.
