Check out all the frauds of MA Democratic Party fighting to be delegates for Hillary. These are the same people who call press conferences on the issue of the day, claim the high ground in front of as many cameras and microphones as possible, then don’t do a goddamn thing for the cause except false hustle.
Lois Pines? Bahahahaha. The bottle bill is not a come back either.
What greater accomplishment is there than to have the privilege of paying your own way to Philadelphia, spend three days in an packed sports arena/concert hall waiting for that one moment when someone with clipboard asks you how you vote and you proudly declare “Hillary Clinton”.
Good for you!
That’s what these people do; acquire useless trophies. Like high school and college seniors suddenly joining lame no-show-extra-curricular activities to dress up college applications and job resumes.
In the sports world these are the same people who pay money to go on cruises with professional athletes. They’re bodies. That’s all they are. Sure everyone is nice to them but really, do you think they’re respected?
These are the people whose entire self-worth is centered on being a Hillary delegate.
The mayor turning over subpoenas (if they exist) to the Globe is an interesting exercise in the esoteric world of law.
The public records law is great public policy and the more openness there is the better, however there are necessary exceptions. Some are valid and some are horse crap.
Right now the Boston Globe is seeking public records from the city of Boston regarding any subpoenas it or its employees received from the feds.
The city says because there is an on-going investigation and although not required the letter from the feds with the subpoenas requests that the city not disclose to others because it could compromise the investigation. This is a boilerplate letter or lecture that goes with every witness or subpoena the government has ever called.
Got all this? Here’s my angle. Local and National prosecutors should be chirping in on this and say that as a matter of public policy government entities should not be required to make public any document or witness subpoenas simply based on public records law?
Why you ask?
A public records request can be generated by the hundreds and on a monthly or periodic basis a newspaper or other moneyed entity can request information on government subpoenas from every single entity in Massachusetts thereby obfuscating every criminal investigation where information was sought from any state agency, city or town..
The issue is not Boston and this particular case. It’s law enforcement being able to protect investigations from being announced to whomever would be interested.
Obviously the US Attorney’s office in Boston would never take that position in this case. They’re out to destroy the mayor.
Plus the Globe must know about subpoenas and what’s in them because the feds told them all about it. Most likely Fred Wyshak talking to Shelly Murphy. Remember, she sold her soul to the devil, I mean Fred Wyshak, years ago.
