Jen Flanagan supports Martha. I wonder if she polled her male staffers --oh, she has no male staffers! Maybe next time she'll get no male votes!

Old "hide under the desk" Coakley? She hasn't done a THING as AG so yeah it makes perfect sense to make her a Senator...this state is F'ed up beyond repair.

Coakly was recently mentioned in the news as giving her staff BIG pay raises, and adding people to the staff, while other District Attorney's had to accept budget cuts. Coakly also dragged her heels in the DiMassi case and others, as she's a "loyal member of the Democratic party", which can do no
wrong.

"She's very much a go-getter," said Benson, who worked with Coakley on hearing and legislation that resulted in fines against Unitil for last December's ice storm
"She's taken a hard stand on issues when she hasn't had to, but because she knew it was the right thing to do, and I respect that."
I can't believe that these words are from Jen Benson who stated that all people wanted is for Unitil to improve a little. Jen needs to heed her own words and start taking a hard stance and position on the issues that affect us.

Typical response from a politician, go with the flow, do not argue with the 'power elite', or you will suffer the consequences. Just look how DiMassi punished people...

VOTERS , Ostracize her, she is the proverbial teat on a Bull: USELESS!!!

Entrenched in dirty Beacon hill politics, NO None Nada accomplishments, inept/usless as an AG.

No wonder the LEFT WINGED PARROT endorses her!!!

Martha refused to investigate former house speakers DiMasi and Finneran. She let the feds do it...OH that's right. Mike Sullivan is the US Attorney, a George Bush rumpswab. Maybe when Martha is elected she can convince President O'Bama to pardon both.
