Mitt’s Mob Man Makes Money Move

Run-Mitt Monahan, who’s alleged mob-ties forced Willard Mitt to ask for his head (source: Boston Globe, 8/29/2003) has decided to hold his ground and now says he won’t resign. He says that Romney “lieutenants acted heavy-handed and precipitously without knowledge of the facts.” (source: Boston Globe, 9/11/2003) Gee, you’d think he could have called them ‘loathsome lieutenants’, but hey, every day can’t be Christmas.

So now we have, what was called in less sensitive times, a Mexican standoff. Except neither party is Mexican. (Unless you count the time Willard’s polygamous great-grandfather took his three wives south-of-the-border in a self-imposed exile. (source: Washington Post, 7/9/1998) But we digress.

Romney claims he wants Genaro Angiulo’s business partner (that would be Monahan – source: Boston Globe, 9/11/2003) gone. Monahan says he’s not budging. He was hired to do a job and he’ll do it. Damn it.

Why does this seem so familiar?

Is this the point where Romney threatens to appoint Alan Dershowitz, George Daher and Howie Carr to the Civil Service Commission as he did when he was trying to kick Bill Bulger to the curb? (source: Boston Globe, 8/8/2003)

Or does he simply keep sending out his loathsome $150,000-a-year spokesman to take another bullet as Monahan racks up valuable months toward his three-year salary average? That way, the Fraud Governor gets to keep making fraudulent 'reform' statements, and his pal gets to grab a higher retirement kiss.

The sacred 'win-win!'

Granted, this sounds antithetical to Romney’s planned pension reform, which he announced, saying “To receive a pension at a huge multiple of the median income . . . and to do so based upon a few years of high income after many years of more normal income, makes no sense. It's wrong, and we're going to propose that that's changed in a pension reform plan.” (source: Boston Globe, 9/6/2003)

We’ll believe it when we see it. But it gives us an idea on how to treat Run-Mitt Monahan. Let him keep his job and earn whatever he can grab from now until the voters throw Team Reform out of office. But when Monahan retires, give him the $4,800 a year pension he deserves. (source: Boston Globe, 8/22/2003)

We figure those conditions would start Run-Mitt Monahan running for the hills all by himself, singing ‘take this pension and shove it, I’m not hacking here no more….'
