Only in Massachusetts – Marty Walsh, Union President, Chair of House Ethics Committee

Every once in a while you see something that makes you scratch your head.  For a conservative in Massachusetts there isn’t much to be excited about in the Mayor’s race.  As I did a little research about the two candidates, one glaring thing stood out.  Sitting State Representative, and paid Union President Marty Walsh, is also the chair of the Massachusetts House of Representatives Ethics Committee.

You read that right.  The one state representative in Massachusetts with the biggest conflict of interest.  The one that serves two masters, the electorate of his district, and his union brothers and sisters, is the person in charge of the committee that investigates conflicts of interest.

Is there any wonder the Commonwealth is in the state that it is in?

Only in Massachusetts.
