(“These aren’t the Droids you’re looking for….” – promoted by Paul R. Ferro)
If you haven’t had the time to read today’s article by Chris Cassidy of the Boston Herald regarding the State Ethics Commission, kicking him out of an ethics training session – it is worth a read.
There are so many layers to why this is such a snapshot of why Beacon Hill is so dysfunctional.
The meeting was supposed to discuss ethics reform and transparency, and so they close it off to the press… have to love that transparency. Then after the reporter was kicked out, some of the state Reps lie about who they are to the reporter.
Rep. Toomey from Cambridge tells him to his face:
“I’m not a rep,” state Rep. Tim Toomey (D-Cambridge) said. “I just was in there for a second. … No, no, just passing through. … Just a friend.”
You have to love a Dem state rep, leaving an ethics meeting and his first action is to lie to a member of the press. Classic Mass Democrat for you.
