2 ex-lawmakers gain after GOP battle

 Lord Acton wrote, “power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” And

King Solomon of the Old Testament said this: (Ecclesiasties 1:9)

What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again;
there is nothin new under the sun.

 


Put these two thoughts together, add a political Intelligence story reported by of all media, the Boston Globe, and it appears that  MA GOP Chair Bob Maginn, who was employed for 10 years by  Mitt Romney at Bain Capital, purchased his chairmanship. It is also  alleged  that Mitt and Scott Brown conspired together to  hand pick  Maginn for the  GOP Chairmanship.  Maginn who donated $2400 to Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer’s election campaign in 2010 to purchase political favor, followed up that political transaction with another on November 30th. at the MA GOP State Chair election. He purchased his GOP Chair by bribing Former Representative Peter Blute and   former congressman Peter Torkildsen.
“Former Representative Peter Blute, who considered challenging Maginn for the chairmanship, and his fellow former congressman Peter Torkildsen, a past party chairman who helped steer Maginn to victory over McNamara, now have secured paid consulting contracts with Maginn’s company, Jenzabar Inc” You know, Jenzabar was the company started by Maginn’s wife who incidentally also has an affinity for the Occupy Boston Socialist crowd, but that has nothing to do with Bob, you know.

They say, “You get the government you deserve.” I say,  don’t inflict these corrupt  politicians on me.  Jennifer Nassour came into power as GOP Chair and utterly destroyed any hope of uniting the State party as she accelerated the GOP towards the Left at great neck speed. She was aided and abetted by the Washington-Boston establishment.  She has now handed over the gavel to Maginn, who continues the leftward acceleration but with personal monetary resources to purchase whatever stands in his path. I wonder whether Do-Bee Bob has been promised a Cabinet position  or an Ambassadorship in a Romney Administration? H’mmm, perhaps  Ambassador to China.

In any case, in this crucial election year of 2012, you and I are the loser in this plot of the powerful in the GOP to purchase  “The  People’s Seat” for their own aggrandizement, while burying  a true GOP healer like Frank  McNamara and dashing the hope for GOP unity and victories ”for the People” in 2012.

If there has been a prize lately in Massachusetts Republican circles, political office aside, it has been the chairmanship of the state party.

With Mitt Romney a strong contender for the GOP’s 2012 presidential nomination, and Scott Brown likely to battle Elizabeth Warren in one of the country’s most high-profile US Senate races, there will be special demands on the chairman’s post during the next year.
