What ME worry?

Wonder who they will blame for this one?

Due to a series of recent mis-steps by the state Medical Examiner's office, the body of a December fire victim was mis-identified and released to a funeral home without a positive identification or name on the death certificate. (source: Boston Globe, 12/31/2003; Boston Herald, 12/23/2003, 1/1/2004)

In the past, Team Reform laid problems at the state ME’s office on Richard Evans, the office's former administrator. However, as Willard Mitt’s Secretary of Public Safety Edward Flynn said on November 26, Dr. Richard J. Evans "is no longer functioning as chief medical examiner.” (source: Boston Herald, 11/26/2003)

Which means that this mess is Willard Mitt's responsibility, now.

But we knew that back in October when Romney’s loathsome $150,000-a-year spokesman bragged that Team Reform was cleaning up the ME’s office and that "the (fraud) governor has been working hard to put the Commission on Medico-Legal Investigation into place." (source: Boston Herald, 10/26/2003)

By law, thirteen of the panel’s members are appointed by the governor. (source: MGL, c.6, s.184)

Romney was "working hard" on staffing the Commission in October. 2003.

It’s 2004. Do you know where your Commission on Medico-Legal Investigation is?

So, when can we expect the Fraud Governor to fly back from vacation so that he can hold a press conference to assure us that he is doing everything to keep us safe from … the Medical Examiners office?

Keep up the hard work, Fraudo. We can wait. We're not quite dead yet.
