Flexible Flyer

Last month, Willard Mitt claimed he wanted to get more security money to local governments across the nation. The so-called "Romney Commission" called for greater flexibility in security funding. (source: Boston Globe, 6/26/2004)

Too bad Romney didn't mean greater security funding in Massachusetts.

Because Willard Mitt's vetoes show that despite instructing the flack formerly known as the stout, Reese Witherspoon-wannabe dye-job aide to Romney’s loathsome $150,000-a-year spokesman to issue a statement claiming that the new state budget made significant investments in homeland security and public safety, Romney is cutting public safety funding. (source: Office of (Fraud) Gov, Romney signs $22.402B fiscal year 2005 'No New Tax' Budget, 6/25/2004)

Romney vetoed over $700,000 from the Hampden County sheriff's office, over $560,000 from the Worcester County sheriff, over $700,000 from the Middlesex County sheriff, and over $1 million from the combined sheriffs of Essex, Berkshire, Hampshire, and Franklin Counties.

But wait. It gets better. Because Willard Mitt is not cutting all of the sheriffs budgets. T least one name was conveniently left off the veto list.

James M. Cummings of Barnstable County, what makes you so special? Why were seven sheriff's pared back, yet your budget allowed to fly high, unfettered?

Is it due to the fact that you, the Republican sheriff of Barnstable County, are a genuine FOF - Friend of Fraudo - whose name appears on Republican campaign sites and whose employees numbered among Romney/Healey Inc's earliest campaign tools? (see RiaF, 6/18/2004 & 3/9/2004)

Or is this just the Fraud Governor's way of being flexible?
