Well there you have it fans. A Republican in power benefitting from her position.Another insider playing by a different set of standards. Wait! Isn't that whatRepublicans say the Dems are doing. So who is right? I guess it is up to all of us to look through all the garbage to see what is worth salvaging. What we need is a person in all offices who will walk the straight and narrow line. Now where did that needle go to?

The Dem supporters are getting really desperate if they have to throw this at the wall in hopes it will stick.

And look how mis-leading the headline is.
Report: Most Red Sox tags went to Polito and her supporters
And then the first line in the article.
More than two-thirds of the first 100...
So unless only 100 plates were sold the headline is a lie.

Who gives a sh#t! They can all stick their plates up their as#ses!! Way more important things going on then a friend hooking up another friend to get a low plate number for their car.

This is typical crooked politics because politicians are theives and they would all sell their souls for the power. For once, I would love to see the impossible and have a politician actually never promise me a damn thing since they can't promise crap anything

From what I understand it takes someone or some group to propose a worthy project which would benefit from such plates. Then they must obtain 1500 signatures pledging to purchase the plates. In return they get some of the early plates. In this case the project raised and donated some $5,000,000 to the Jimmy Cancer Fund and this paper and the Globe write a hit piece? If you are upset that you didn't get a low number plate why don't you propose your own project and see how much work it is. Also the bar of $5,000,000 to a worthy charity has been set. So go for it.

What's the big deal over Red Sox number plates. Don't we have bigger fish to fry? No matter who you're for in the Treasurer's race this issue doesn't mean crap when thousands of dollars are going to Dana Farber. Did Grossman's campaign open this pandora's box. He gave campaign money to DiMasi and Wilkerson. Wow what a bunch of bullshit. I hope the dollars go to some of the cancer research that I had. The dirtiest campaigns ever in Massachusetts and the country this year.
