Romney has filed legislation to overhaul the Board of the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority. He wants to be able to fire the board members for any reason, with or without cause.

Last year, Jane Swift (R-Flagbearer) tried to fire the board - for cause (which the courts later found she did not have) - and was roundly criticized. Christy Mihos and his allies claimed the Board's purpose lay in its independence; that a beholden Board would be of no value. Mihos is now saying that the Governor should be able to control the Board to control costs.

The Globe reported last year that, in the wake of Swift's action, Mihos commissioned a poll showing that Romney could beat Swift.

Thanks for the gumball, Christy. You're fired.
