Business as usual. Lying, cheating, stealing from hard working honest people, just another day in the life of a politician in Massachusetts.

Do you think the Globe/ Herald just leave a standing headline ready to go
"Embattled House Speaker Indicted by Grand Jury"
Does that seat come with a bag of corruption in the left drawer of the office desk?

Now we will finally see what side of the fence Rep. Kevin "flipflop" Murphy is really on...Is he really with Rep. Rogers (D-Norwood) as he says or is he really with Rep.DeLeo (D-Winthrop)as Deleo's people claim? Ime will tell Mr. Chairman...we all want to know.

Go get him Martha ! Boston hearld wrote "House counsel has advised DiMasi to step down before Feb. 6... He’ll have served 30 days on that date, which means he must file a statement of financial interest" sounds like that statement of financial interest would be a problem.

Thats an easy one, heres the short list of people who didn't vote for Dimasi, seems Dimasi has a lot of power - kinda like the head of an organized crime family - oh that actually is quite accurate and fits this situation perfectly.

"Here are the eight Democratic state representatives who did not vote to re-elect state Rep. Salvatore DiMasi as speaker on Wednesday, according to the State House News Service (sub. req.).

David Torrisi (North Andover), voted present
Cory Atkins (Concord), voted present
Jennifer Callahan (Sutton), voted present
Thomas Calter (Kingston), voted present
Stephen Canessa (Fall River), voted present
John Quinn (Dartmouth), voted present
Thomas Stanley (Waltham), voted present
William Greene (Billerica), who voted for himself "

How many more Mr. Speakers (will be indicted and convicted) How Many?

Still think the Speakers desk comes with a big bag of corruption in the top right drawer.

Was Billy Bulger ever indicted? I don't think so.
So not counting Billy "the Poison Dwarf" Bulger, I predict as follows: "most, if not all, of them."
Oh, and Diane had friends that gave her $70K in gifts. Why can't I get friends like that?
I fully expect to see someone named Blagojevich on the next Massachusetts ballot.
Citizen Bulger was President of the Senate. They have managed to go without indictment for a while. Billy came awfully close over 75 State St.
Senators are just a couple of watts brighter than the dim bulbs that lurks the House hallways!

You are absolutely correct, sir.
I predict that DiMasi will have a radio talk show soon, though.
He will probably replace that mooroon that babbles in the morning. But he has to get the felony conviction on the resume before he can take over that spot. Is a pre requisite.
