It appears that Congressman Steve Lynch is mad as hell.
The iron worker blood in his veins is boiling due to suspected insider trading in his own Democratic party. Word on the street has veteran Congressman Ed Markey titled as ‘the anointed one’ by the Democratic Grand Pooh-Bars. The nod by the luminary gives Markey a leg up on any candidate who attempts to fill the vacant senate seat formerly held by John Kerry.
Lynch, an extremely grounded blue collar man, obviously frowns at any type of backdoor politics. Many of us agree that the true democratic principles of our system call for ‘the people’ to elect their next senator, not the hierarchy.
Is it possible Steve called a physic to get a feel on an issue? I don’t think so. More than likely the gutsy South Boston street kid in Lynch is calling it ‘as he sees it’. Even though he has now been painted as an underdog, like the character Rocky Balboa, he will go the distance! At least the voters will be able to exercise our right to choose our next senator!
Of course, the Democrat club members deny the fact that such stuff exists in Massachusetts politics. However, the secret is out! The pols are lining up, circling like sharks to replace Markey in the 5th Congressional District.
They are Senator Katherine Clark, D-Melrose, Senator William Brownsburger D-Belmont, and State Rep. Carl Sciortino D-Medford. These three candidates have announced themselves as officially, in the race. Each has established a committee with the federal campaign finance agency.
Coincidentally, they all endorse Ed Markey, I wonder why?
Now these folks definitely a know a physic!
