    For MA politics, tough to prioritize, but here is my best shot:

    1. Redistricting (Losing a congressman, Frank resigns, lots of other fallout)

    2. DiMasi convicted

    3. Elizabeth Warren announces

    4. Romney as GOP front runner

    5. Maginn becomes MassGOP chairman

    But my personal favorite political story of the year for Massachusetts politics was…

    – Freshman state rep and staffer having sex on beacon hill house floor well after late-night budget talks.
