Boston Herald Hits the Nail on the Head
An editorial in today’s Boston Herald couldn’t have been any more accurate when calling the Democrats on their ultimate hypocrisy. As you are all well aware, Senator Ted Kennedy, who was influential in changing the Massachusetts Senate Appointment law back in 2004, is now looking to change it back! How convenient! Now, with a Democrat in the corner office and the likelihood that Ted Kennedy may be leaving the Senate soon, apparently Kennedy thinks having a gubernatorial appointment is in the best interest of the Commonwealth. We think this reeks of political opportunism and will be incredibly disappointed if the rules are suddenly changed at the request of the Senator. When Charlie Baker’s elected Governor next year, will there be a mad rush to change the law again? That of course is a rhetorical question, as we already know the answer!
