Governor Deval Patrick, reverses course and refutes his earlier “apologies” saying that he’s suffered some “hazing” by the Beacon Hill establishment.
Patrick said he thought he was being targeted for a bit of “hazing” by the Massachusetts political elite, but on the advice of prominent Democrats, he added two veterans of Beacon Hill politics to his staff, reflecting the view among many in the state that mistakes have stemmed from the inexperience of Patrick and his team. One of the new staffers will run his press operation.
So it’s not the Governor’s fault that he’s made bad choices. It’s the fault of those that dimed him out? Some sort of frat initation gone awry?
Does this mean the Animal House days are back, on Beacon Hill?
