I assume that today all the woke Democrats who’ve endorsed Ricardo “Let ’em Go” Arroyo for district attorney will now be asked if they will demand that their slobbering wet kisses for him be removed from his website votearroyo.com.
That was some story in the Boston Globe about his, shall we say, alleged questionable record with women. I wonder why it took so long for the bow-tied bumkissers to finally put it into print. But what the hell, they finally did.
It must have been painful, especially since he checks off all the boxes, including that most important “Defund the Police” box.
But at least now we know why he feels the way he does.
But let’s go straight to the website. Please, I implore you, try not to let all of the encomiums that you are about to read for Let ’em Go Arroyo destroy your confidence in the judgments of our local Democrat grandees.
We begin with the fake Indian, Elizabeth Warren. Lieawatha says that her latest hero from the community supports “people’s safety, dignity and wellbeing.”
You don’t say, Fauxcahontas!
“Ricardo has worked tirelessly to address systemic racial and class inequities.”
He’s been working tirelessly, all right, but it appears that at least some of his interests allegedly lie in other areas. I’ll bet the fake Indian went on the warpath when she realized another of her pals – like Carlos Henriquez before him, many moons ago — was about to get a rocket in his pocket. Do you suppose she sent smoke signals to the Globe, complaining about this beastly coverage of a Democrat up-and-comer?
Next, Sen. Ed Markey, also known as Mr. Frosty.
“He will bring his deep roots and experience working directly in the community to build and strengthen our justice system.”
Oh, he’s definitely working directly in the community… with deep roots.
JoJoJo Kennedy, the bust-out former Congressman, likewise uses the r-word about Let ’em Go, saying he is “deeply rooted in the community he serves.”
The failed solon probably sees a lot of the same traits in Arroyo that his, say, uncle Jack, or his great-grandfather Joe, or his great-uncle Teddy brought to their own, uh, community services. (Wednesday afternoon, Kennedy informed the Herald he’s pulling his support for Ricardo.)
JoJoJo, by the way, was a very dear friend of Monica Cannon-Grant, the racial arsonist and grifter currently under indictment on multiple federal corruption charges. These Democrats really know how to pick ’em, don’t they?
Meet City Councilor Kendra Lara, of Jamaica Plain. She is “excited” to endorse her fellow Boston city councilor because he will hold police departments “accountable.”
Because accountability is very important to the Arroyo family.
Then there’s rookie City Councilor Gigi Coletta of East Boston. She’s more than excited – she’s “thrilled” to come out for Arroyo. Oddly, her old boss on the Council, state Sen. Lydia Edwards, just endorsed Kevin Hayden, the appointed incumbent district attorney.
It appears that Sen. Edwards is not nearly as “thrilled” or “excited” about Arroyo as Kendra and Gigi – wonder what that’s all about.
One thing you can say about Hayden – he has never thrilled or excited any of his colleagues.
State Sen. Sonia Chang-Diaz, another failed candidate, says she shares with Arroyo “a longtime commitment to building healthier communities and breaking cycles of violence and trauma.”
That statement is not aging well.
Former Mayor Kim Janey says that “Ricardo is unapologetic.” That much is certainly true. But I’m not so certain that Her Honor is correct that old pal is committed to a system “that treats everyone with dignity, and that cares about victims and survivors.” Arroyo has denied all the Globe’s allegations.
Tania Fernandes Anderson, a city councilor from Dorchester, considers him “a beacon of hope for those of us engaged in the work of progressive politics.”
Nika Elugardo, a state rep, says he has “a solid character… never settling for justice for some but always fighting for all.”
