Who exactly do you represent? Gov. Deval Patrick dodges questions about how much welfare benefits
the Chechen terrorists got from his state, citing their "privacy".
Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and his state agencies are refusing to release information on what government benefits Boston jihadist Tamerlan Tsarnaev received, following a national furor over reports he and his family received welfare.
Their reason? It would violate the dead terrorist's right to privacy!
That's right. Led by the stalwart Boston Herald, media entities pressed for info all day. Across the board, state agencies flatly refused to provide information about the taxpayer-funded lifestyle for the 26-year-old man and his brother and accomplice Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19.
On EBT card status or spending, the Mass. state welfare spokesman would only say Tamerlan Tsarnaev, his wife and 3-year-old daughter received benefits that ended in 2012. He declined further comment.
On unemployment compensation, the Mass. labor department spokesman refused to disclose whether Tamerlan Tsarnaev ever collected, saying it was confidential and not a matter of public record.
On public housing, officials ducked questions on whether the brothers were ever on Section 8 assistance.
Friends and relatives report that the Chechen jihadist who trained to murder Americans had received ALL of these benefits on the taxpayer's dime, but our public officials are protecting his "privacy" - and he wasn't even a citizen!
I guess we shouldn't be surprised that Gov. Patrick's bureaucrats are going to such lengths to protect the "privacy" of a deceased non-citizen Muslim terrorist who murdered 4 people, including an 8-year old boy.
After all this is the same governor who protects the privacy of illegal alien criminals, by refusing to participate in the Secure Communities program wherein suspects fingerprints are sent to the FBI to be checked for immigration status. Because of Gov, Patrick's refusal, an Ecuadorean illegal who assaulted a police officer in 2009 was never deported as required by law. That illegal, Nicolas Guaman, went on to DUI-kill student Matthew Denice - dragging his body under his truck for half a mile.
And the Feds got into the rally-round-the-terrorist act today too!
When pressed on whether Tamerlan Tsarnaev had an "Obama Phone" - and may have possibly even used one to trigger the Boston Marathon bombs - the Federal Communications Commission remained tight-lipped, refusing to say whether either brother had a government-paid cellphone, also citing privacy laws.
Remember - this is the same Administration that recently tried (and failed) to shred Federal HIPAA healthcare privacy laws to permit your doctor to secretly report that you were mentally ill - in order to have your guns taken away. But they are protecting the privacy of a terrorist? Seriously?
One Democratic congressman blasted both the Mass. and Federal governments, demanding the public's right to know how taxpayers were underwriting the jihadist Tsarnaevs.

DIMocRATs never fail to amaze. Anything that impinges on their sick perspective on anything is off limits. At least this is happening in MA where the LIB moron population deserves everything they get. Total losers.
You're right GeorgeWashingtonsGhost.
Honest law biding citizens were forced to give up privacy rights. But the figgin killers - the lowlifes who planted bombs next to children? No, their privacy must be protected?
Something's wrong here ...
