Romney Hires Healey Hack

Once again breaking his promise to not lard up state government with hacks and political insiders, the Fraud Governor has hired Edward J. Weldon as assistant press secretary in the Executive Office of Transportation and Construction. Weldon will earn $40,000 a year, and work under Dan Grabauskas, the Republican Party's failed Treasurer's office candidate.

Prior to his hack hire, Weldon worked for Lightweight Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey at the Republican State Committee as their $30,000 a year field director. Yes, he lives in Beverly, just like the Lightweight Lt. Gov. (source: Boston Herald, 4/16/2003)

Despite Weldon's Party pedigree, an aide to Romney's loathsome $150,000 a year spokesman denied that the Commonwealth's newest hack's Party connections got him the new job and $10,000 salary bump.

"Politics had nothing to do with it. My understanding is that it was a very thorough process and that (transportation) interviewed a number of people."

Maybe she's right; *one* is a number.
