From sco: What the heck is this about?
As speculation mounts over DiMasi’s future, Rogers has been laying the groundwork for what many on Beacon Hill believe will be a succession fight. His major rival is Representative Ronald Mariano, a Quincy Democrat.
First I’ve heard of it. Where’s Sal going?
BTW, Rogers vs. Mariano is not an especially inspiring choice, is it? Hope you like the Big Dig Culture:
“A $1,000 lunch at Capital Grille. Do you think that’s right? Do you think your constituents eat at Capital Grille?” Wu asked.
“Well, most of the money that I raise is from the industry,” Mariano said.
Oh, well no problem then! Carry on. I feel completely confident in Mr. Mariano’s ability to look out for the public interest.
Update: In response to the speculation in the comments that DiMasi might be pushed out in a palace coup of sorts, I think it pretty much goes without saying that Sal would be better than the thoroughly compromised Rogers and Mariano. What a joke that would be.
Is this the price of Sal’s victory on marriage? It had better not be.
