Governor Deval Patrick and Lieutenant Governor Tim Murray have raised more than $1.4 million in combined campaign contributions since taking office, much of it by aggressively soliciting the same special interest groups that, as candidates last year, the Democrats denounced as wielding too much influence on Beacon Hill.
We so thought Deval would be different! Why?
"If you want the same old same old, the politics of money and connections, I'm not your guy," he said in a Sept. 7  debate with Democratic opponents. "But if what you want is the politics of hope and a change of culture on Beacon Hill, I am your guy, and I want your vote."
It seems the gullible have been gulled once again.
