According to the Herald’s Brian Dowling: “Bay State Congressman Stephen Lynch said he’d ‘consider voting for Gov. Charlie Baker in 2018 and criticized attacks trying to link the governor to failed GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore through Baker’s fundraising for the Republican National Committee. ‘Charlie Baker is a good and decent man,’ Lynch said, addressing arguments from Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Setti Warren. ‘To tie him to a pedophile, come on, come on. That’s the worst of politics right there.’”
No Congressman, the worst of politics is for you to distort facts and side with a Party that is becoming more reviled by the day – and on the wrong side of history.
Of course, neither Setti Warren nor any Democrat suggests Baker supports a pedophile. It’s just that Baker is so focused on circumventing our state campaign finance laws that he is willing to facilitate the Republican National Committee’s support of the very things our governor says he disagrees with. Yes, this includes RNC support of an accused child molester, but it also includes support for the GOP tax bill that will screw Massachusetts and money to pay Trump’s legal bills.
At a time when Republican Charlie Baker can only mumble quietly that he is “disappointed” with what the Republican tax bill will do to Massachusetts, we need our Democratic Representatives to shout about it, call out all Republicans who fail to take a moral stand – and fight these outrages. Congressman, you should be asking the Governor, “Whose side are you on? Either you are with the hard-working people of Massachusetts or you are against us. There is no middle ground in this fight.”
