Romney Now Supports Chapter 40B

Despite railing against Chapter 40B during the election, the Fraud Governor now supports the so-called anti-Snob Zoning Law which forces communities to create affordable housing.

Last year, the Fraud Candidate told the Lawrence Eagle Tribune, "40B is not the answer" as he sought support from suburban voters in the high-growth region near Routes 128 and 495, where town officials are fighting large-scale housing developments. (source: Boston Globe, 7/27/02) But now that the election is over, Romney has changed his tune. He is now virtually endorsing 40B.

"I don't want to do anything that detracts from the creation of affordable housing," the Fraud Governor told a housing symposium at Northeastern University yesterday. Chapter 40B could be made less of a hammer he said, "but we need more housing, not less." (source: Boston Globe, 5/1/03)

That's kind of how I feel about Romney's honesty.
