Some welcome news this morning...

It's nice to have the Speaker in your camp, that's for sure.
House Speaker Salvatore F. DiMasi made a concerted push yesterday to stifle Governor Deval Patrick's casino legislation, calling legislators into his office and persuading some of them to switch their positions, according to House proponents of the legislation who called the speaker's moves a setback....

Wallace, a Boston Democrat, said that at least eight to 10 legislators switched their votes yesterday under pressure from DiMasi and that Patrick's gambling initiative now has only "an outside chance" of passing.
It's also nice to know there's a little justice going on in this world...

Ryan - while I agree with the issue - isn't the TACTIC a little Draconian? Sort of everything you were working against?

Ryan Adams said...

Sure is. But, given all the times I've ended up on the other side of the Speaker, I'll take it.
