I was on Broadside with Jim Braude last night for two segments. The first was talking about the presidential primary. The second followed Sean Murphy of the Boston Globe’s explanation of his investigation. I made one point that is being lost by those that say Tim Murray did nothing wrong, that this is all McLaughlin’s fault. The point is, Mike McLaughlin didn’t make his own picks to housing authorities across the state. Deval Patrick made those picks, under the advice of Tim Murray at McLaughlin’s request. That is the quo, in the alleged quid pro quo. It will be the most damning part for Murray, and possibly Patrick.
