Shall Honor Outlive Honesty?
This tyrant, whose sole name blisters our tongues,
Was once thought honest; you have lov’d him well."
William Shakespere, The Tragedy of Macbeth
“It's very hard to stop people who have no shame about what they're doing. It is very hard to tell people that they are making decisions that will undermine our checks and balances and constitutional system of government who don't care. It is very hard to stop people who have never been acquainted with the truth."
Federal Prosecutor Michael Sullivan on the Massachusetts Democrat Party? No, Hillary Clinton on the GOP in Manhattan earlier today.
I direct you to my essay of May 6, Upon my Oath as a Gentleman… in which I predicted that Mr. Finneran, part-time Eastham resident, would face Federal charges, and be utterly oblivious as to why. (As a side note - Eastham should put their residents, the Speaker and former Assistant Minority Leader Ron Gauch, to work together - perhaps on the Finance Committee...just watch the tax rate tumble!)
His statement today – “"Twenty-six years of unblemished public service and unquestioned integrity speaks volumes…So do the calls, cards and comments from state and federal prosecutors, past and present, judges, attorneys, business leaders and citizens of all stripes regarding the questionable motives and machinations of the United States Attorney's Office." – would have sounded nobler coming out of another’s mouth. Already, the motive for investigating, not the deed itself, is being called into questions.
Finneran will be arraigned in Tuesday, June 14 at 3 pm before US Magistrate Judge Joyce London Alexander. Didn’t she used to date Mitt Romney?
