A pattern of corrupt Democrat admin officials in Massachusetts
I'm shocked! Great summary and update on the @MassDems Corruption and misuse of taxpayer trust and money.
For Immediate Release
What They Are
About Gov Patrick & His Pattern Of Corrupt
“Oozes contempt” …
“Won’t man up to obvious mistakes” … “see-no-evil management” … “wretched record
"It’s bad strategy to
have a royally paid, partial-show commissioner while the governor is leading a
revival-style rally for higher taxes.
"It also looks like
the governor for whom she worked doesn’t respect the taxpayers enough to
acknowledge the reality of the situation.
"Instead of owning up
to bad judgment, Patrick oozes contempt for people who focus on what he
considers the little picture. To Patrick, an unqualified patronage hire here or
an overpaid no-show there is trivial up against the big picture that’s also
known as his vision. He argues with passion and guts for the next generation of
smart state investment. But he won’t man up to obvious mistakes." –The
Boston Globe’s Joan Vennochi3/14/13
"But it’s par for the
Patrick administration course, which has mastered see-no-evil management while
creating new laws the rest of us must live by. Taxpayer-backed food-stamp cards
were used for everything from alcohol and tobacco to bail for years, due to
lackluster enforcement. Public Safety Director Mary Beth Heffernan hired a state
highway director with a lengthy driving record that included six crashes and
several speeding violations." –Lowell
"Every other week or
so, another of his unqualified and/or bent appointees goes down in flames. But
he wishes them all well as he reluctantly kicks them to the curb, and sometimes
he even finds new troughs for them in the hackerama.
"But it’s not just
Sherri Killins. It’s Tim 'Crash' Murray, the lieutenant governor who still
hasn’t explained why he wrecked a state car while going 108 mph. It’s ex-welfare
commissioner Dan Curley, he of the 47,000 nonexistent people with EBT cards.
It’s Mary Beth Heffernan, the former secretary of public safety, who presided
over the cover-up of Crash Murray’s accident and was then booted upstairs to a
judgeship. And, before all those layabouts, it was Sheila Burgess and Annie
Dookhan and Carl Stanley McGee and Ron Bell and Mark Conrad and Marian Walsh and
… do you begin to sense a pattern here?" –Boston
