Shai Sachs reports: “What happened in December, Anthony? That was the question Sam Seidel asked Anthony Galluccio at yesterday’s Progressive Democrats of Cambridge meeting, regarding an allegation that he was driving drunk at the time of an auto accident last December.
“Galluccio’s response: it was a minor incident, he made sure that no one was injured and that everyone was compensated (and that sort of thing), and that he wasn’t drunk but stunned by the airbag. (I’m paraphrasing from a rather vague set of statements, here.) He claims the Boston policeman on the scene wasn’t aware he was a Cambridge city councillor, or at any rate didn’t treat him gently because of it. “I hate to say it, but when I walk the streets in Boston, they’re not throwing rose petals at my feet,” he said. He thinks the folks making noise about this incident now were motivated either monetarily or politically.”
