LOL! Not sure of your point here — you mean Lynn and Peabody could teach Illinois a few things? :)
Thu show ping. Breaking: DiMasi’s money man indicted
>>House Speaker Salvatore F. DiMasis former accountant and campaign treasurer Richard Vitale has been indicted for lobbying and campaign finance violations connected to controversial ticket scalping legislation, Attorney General Martha Coakley said today. A press conference will be held at 2:30 p.m. to outline the charges against Vitale, who reportedly worked behind the scenes on behalf of ticket brokers to help pass a law that relaxed restrictions on ticket resellers. DiMasi has not been implicated in the case.*
>>The Boston Globe has reported that Vitale gave DiMasi a questionable third mortgage on his North End condominium, which the Speaker quickly paid back after the deal was made public.
