Dialing for Dummies

Back in 1981, Willard Mitt was arrested after a lakeside fracas with a park officer. (source: Boston Globe, 5/5/1994) Twenty years later, Romney has finally had his revenge on the MDC, but it would appear that he has yet to gain an appreciation for the law.

Recently the stout, Reese Witherspoon-wanna-be dye-job aide to Romney’s loathsome $150,000-a-year spokesman issued a press statement detailing how the Fraud Governor placed a wager with Indiana Governor Joseph Kernan over Sunday afternoon's AFC Championship game between the New England Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts. (source: office of (fraud) gov, "Romney wagers on Patriots game with Indiana governor," 1/16/2004)

The statement went on to describe how the Fraud Governor "sealed the deal in a phone call with Kernan this morning."

Ding-ding-ding-ding-ding. Paging Tom Reilly.

According to chapter 271, section 17A of the Massachusetts General Laws, "Whoever uses a telephone for the purpose of accepting wagers or bets or for placing all or any portion of a wager with another, upon the result of a trial or contest of skill, speed, or endurance of man, beast, bird, or machine, or upon the result of an athletic game or contest … shall be punished by a fine of not more than two thousand dollars or by imprisonment for not more than one year."

And Romney "sealed the deal in a phone call."

Uh, Reese, you may have gotten your boss busted.

Arrested in 1981; illegal gambling - would someone please tell us again why Willard Mitt is supposed to be such a paragon of moral virtue?

Although this does clear up why Romney’s Secretary of Public Safety recently announced that Team Reform was dropping the state's policy of being tough on crime. (source: Boston Globe, 10/29/2003) He was likely afraid he’d end up sending his scofflaw boss up the river.

Note to anyone who gets pinched over the next week for making an illegal wager on the Super Bowl: COP (Corner Office Precedent) a plea!
