Everybody else who took money from this crook has returned the contributions. But Finegold won't even talk about it. Why did dodgy developers give this man money anyway?? We need to hear from Finegold on this.

I don't understand how he can simply decline to comment. How does he think we can send him to the state senate if he can't clear up this glaring ethical issue, or even begin to explain himself. Debbie has it right - this guy has been in waaaaaay too long.

Answer the tough questions Barry, and return the money like an honest pol.

This man has been in office for 15 years, in all that time he should have learned election and campaign finance laws. This is just another example of Beacon Hill insiders thinking that the rules just don't apply to them. Finegold's gotta go...

Why did this developer feel it so important to make these kinds of illegal contributions to Finegold in the first place?

Suspicious to say the least that Finegold will not even return calls on the matter. Where is the quid pro quo? It’s out there somewhere, on that we can be sure.

Hey Peter,

Have you checked out Gerry Nutter's blog...it is a blunt honest synopsis of Barry's illegal actions of late. Check it out: http://gerrynutterslowell.com/2010/09/03/no-w...

News from Finegold campaign is that he will be a no show at tonight's debate. M-m-m-m. A record he can not defend, perhaps....

Finegold is a CRIMINAL. Silberstein is an honest, hardworking, passionate leader. She's the obvious choice!

Deb is all about Deb, not much difference between Barry and Deb. Both were in together in Andover. Time for a change.
