And Just So’s You Don’t Miss This Nugget
Be sure to note the closing paragraph of today’s Projo article on the last bit of legislation for this year:
The Senate plans to return Thursday to confirm new traffic court magistrate David Cruise, Montalbano’s chief of staff, and a new District Court judge, Mary Elizabeth McCaffrey, sister of the Senate Judiciary chairman.
As I stated during my most recent appearance on Matt Allen’s Violent Roundtable, I’m much more concerned about this cross-branch nepotism than the governor’s hiring of people whom he trusts. Ours may be a part-time legislature, but it’s got a full-time spoils system.
