The Massachusetts political world has been on high alert since it first heard that convicted former house speaker Sal DiMasi was on the move. Well now that we have an idea of where he is going we can start speculating wildly about what will happen next. Here is a quick collection of all the latest DiMasi chatter.
Andrea Estes and Shelley Murphy blew the doors off this one with the scoop that DiMasi may be gearing up to testify before a Worcester grand jury as part of the ongoing Probation Department investigation. This would be a major turn of events as he has some incentive to talk now that he is behind bars for the next several years.
Boston Herald has it, too, noting that he may be traveling in shackles.
David Bernstein speculates that if DiMasi does talk we will not hear about indictments again for months as his testimony will reshape the case. In his words it will get "ugly and uglier."
DeLeo says he won't let house get distracted by probation investigation
House Speaker Robert DeLeo tells State House News that he only knows that he is not under investigation and he cannot speak about the issues facing other elected pols.
Massachusetts Liberal observes that activity at the State House has slowed down since the cloud of impending indictments stalled out over Beacon Hill.
Dan Kennedy uses Storify to put together a post on Sal DiMasi. Pretty cool looking when it is all assembled.
Blue Mass Group is surprisingly silent save for this blurb by EB3.
