MA Gov Mass Mails Welfare Recipients On Eve Of Liz Warren Election? "Coincidence!"

In America, the wide-eyed and innocent believe in unicorns and the Tooth Fairy.

In Massachusetts, they believe in “coincidence.”

Or as they’re called around Warren’s campaign HQ, “likely Democratic voters.”

Somebody get Ripley’s on the phone, quick! Talk about “believe it or...
