"October 14, 2006WRONG.
Democratic candidate Deval L. Patrick lashed out at Lieutenant Governor Kerry Healey yesterday, accusing her campaign of leaking details of the 1993 rape of Patrick's sister by her husband."
Message to Kerry Healey: don't make him angry. You wouldn't like him when he's angry.
Deval Patrick did not say that it was Kerry Healey herself, or her campaign, that peddled this story to Dave Wedge. Read the damn statement. He says that this incident represents her politics. That's a fair statement, IMHO; and even if some would disagree, it's certainly not an accusation that she was responsible for the story. What he actually said is that "The garbage peddlers who shopped this story around town are part of that failed politics, too." That, friends, is true.
