Romney Ramps Up Patronage Parade

Less than one year ago, the Fraud Candidate was talking tough. "I'm running for governor because I'm as sick and tired of the waste, patronage, and mismanagement as you are," an early TV ad intoned. (Yes, intoned!) (source: Boston Globe, 6/2/2002)

Romney was sick of waste and patronage? Maybe he was just tired of not being able to control waste and patronage. Well, he's making up for lost time.

Yesterday, Team Reform created three new 'executive positions' at the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority, including a chief information officer who will receive an annual salary of between $80,000 and $130,000. And to help pay for these vital poltroons the Authority raised parking fees at its Boston Common Garage to $310 a month. Hourly rates will increase by $2. (source: Boston Globe, 5/31/2003)

The Fraud Governor is creating positions and raising fees; another Bain Capital crony is about to come in from the cold.
