|3. Rob Eno in Go Local Worcester
Today's column in up over at Go Local Worcester.
Grammy Award winning artist Lauryn Hill has said, "Reality is easy. It's deception that's the hard work." That is most often true. Elizabeth Warren has been hard at work. Warren, now a candidate for the Senate against Scott Brown, has consistently said one thing publicly while quietly doing something completely different in private.
4. Mass Dem Party Chair admits to meeting with L'Italien on state time
Mass Fiscal Alliance has launched an ethics complaint into Barbara L'Italien's improper use of state resources to campaign. Mostly her work day, and her time that was paid for by the tax-payers of the Commonwealth. The Eagle Tribune has the story.
The complaints, sent earlier this month by the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance, accuse L'Italien, an Andover Democrat running for the 18th Essex state House seat, said that a September 2011 lunchtime meeting L'Italien had with John Walsh, chairman of the Massachusetts Democratic Party, was an inappropriate political meeting under state law.
Those complaints come on the heels of a complaint by the state Democratic Party that the Mass. Fiscal Alliance printed and distributed brochures advocating for a state senate candidate.
"The one with John Walsh, it doesn't get much more political than that," said Paul D. Craney, executive director of the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance.
L'Italien and Walsh have been friends for eight years, she said, and they spent the lunch catching up.
Catching up. Yeah I can see how that went.
Walsh: Hey that Jim Lyons is a real pain in the tookas.
L'Italien: Yes he's downright evil.
Walsh: Hey why don't you run against him for your old seat.
L'Italien: For old time's sake.
Walsh: Hey I'll even come knock on doors for you like we did with your Kid in Derry, NH in 2004.
