The drip drip drip continues from the Boston Globe this morning.
Is there more?
Can the Speaker survive?
Is this a showdown between the Speaker and the AG? If so, who wins?
Any thoughts Ernie Boch III, David, AmberPaw, Charley, Bob?
Please share widely!

Sal’s minion is out in the district making phone calls; Sal’s old opponent’s son is out making calls in the district and the race is on to succeed Sal. I’d say within a week to 10 days Sal will resign. Remember Bluemass readers….Poco’s prediction!
Sal’s district guy, the yiddish gumba, has been making calls. Everyone knows that poco.
It is no secret that sal will be leaving before the term expires. That’s almost 2 years away. people getting ducks in order.
p>Trust me, if Sal is leaving soon he didn’t tell anyone but his wife. Yet you want me to believe he called his old opponent to tell him to ramp up his son’s campaign because he’s leaving in two weeks. How’s that make sense locojoko.
p>Sal’s here for at least 3 months.
p>What else do you know poco?
But Dimasi is going out victoriously, not like the previous speaker.
p>Sal just got re-elected speaka. He ain’t goin no where. It’s too much fun and even a bit of a challenge.
p>Sal may want to select a successor, so that means a special election with low turnout to do it.
p>Why get re-elected speaker if your not gonna stick around a while!
p>Sal has done a lot of good. But the ethics thing puts an asterisk. Clear the slate or just ride out victoriously.
p>It’s a new day in America! But Boston is steep in tradition. And Beacon Hill is more so (e.g. Big Dig culture).
We have enough distractions, and this Commonwealth is headed into the toilet. We need bold leadership, not some ethically-challenged guy who is looking over his shoulder and spooking at every shadow.
p>Other than that, I have no opinion on the matter.
