Of course he should. Now I know why he's all about protecting illegal immigrants. He profits from them because I'll bet his tenants were illegal.

Did anyone else notice that for two weeks in a row the Leader-Herald (Thursday's Everett paper) did not carry any information regarding Smith.....So much for Everett news in a local paper....

Of course he profited from these tenants in ILLEGAL apartments !!! Anyone know of any apartments locally that rent for $700/month ??? I wonder if the IRS isn't looking into this ... these ILLEGAL apartments could be a source for a lot of 'under-the-table' dollars ... just give a little thought and do the math .....

Actually he should resign from his state rep. position - I mean really how effective can he be now - not that he ever was .....

Since his pal D.Pat. is all for ILLEGALS, anyone wanna bet this gets swept away from the media ???

Never voted for him, never will - not will anyone I know vote for him.... Hopefully he's 'toast'....

The time for pulling papers to run in a state election has come and gone, unless you run as a write-in, which history shows us to be inefficient.

If someone is a registered republican they can run as a write in on the republican primary ballot. If enough republicans write in the name, that person becomes the republican nominee. Then when the ballots for the final election come out, that person's name will be on that ballot. No need to write in for the final.

So write in needed for primary only. I bet a lot of republicans would be willing to write in a credible person.

So you would vote for a crook just because he doesn't like FFF? Well this explains why Carlo got re-elected.

Is it possible for someone registered as an independent to get written in on the republican primary ballot the same way. Will that work to get on ballot for the final.

Its too bad that the local papers didn't use the same standard in FFF case They slanted story so as to appear he was found inocent which he was not.he sure pays to put ads in the local rags

No news articles on Stat since ?? ch 4 reported it (or was it ch 5 ???).... If it was anyone else, it would be headline news each week !!!! This is what turns people against politicians -- they think (actually believe) they are above the law (laws most of them have passed - they want YOU and I to obey but not THEM !!! of no, they are above the law(s).... This is so disgusting ....
Very true

This is such a sorry state that he could have committed murder and still get re-elected. As long as he promises the free stuff and continues to protect illegal immigrants and their illegal offspring, that's all that matters.

It is a mystery to me why the Boston news media make such a big deal out of some politicians actions and not so much others. I have not seen any others pick up the story except the original source.
