Mass GOP to Andover Democrat: Report the Abuse to Feds

Boston - Mass GOP Executive Director Nick Connors issued the following statement in response to House Democrat David Torrisi's comments in today's Boston Globe.

Connors said: "I am saddened, but not surprised to read Torrisi's comment that 5 percent of his colleagues behave in a manner that is reflective of the indictment against Sal DiMasi. I call upon Torrisi to immediately report to the U.S. Attorney's Office the 5 percent of House members he believes brazenly abuse their power."


"It's another black stain for Beacon Hill," said Representative David Torrisi, a Democrat from North Andover. "It's a brazen abuse of power that is not a real reflection of 95 percent of my colleagues."

"For lawmakers, 'Another black stain for Beacon Hill,'"
