NEW: LeBeau Blasts Rep. Binienda for Ethics Vote

Thursday, October 18, 2012

 

Republican challenger Bill LeBeau went on the offensive Thursday in his race against Democratic State Representative John Binienda for the 17th Worcester District seat.

After a new report revealed lingering patronage issues in the state's trial court and probation office after Democratic ethics reform measures were instituted, LeBeau railed on the 26-year incumbent for voting against bipartisan ethics reforms put forward months ago.

The report indicated that roughly 1 in 4 staffers hired or promoted by the trial court have relatives working for the state, as well as two-thirds of newly promoted chief probation officers.

“While today’s report showing insiders like my opponent are lining up jobs for relatives is disappointing, it is reprehensible that my opponent had a chance to do something about it but chose not,” LeBeau said.

“Everyone I speak to in the district knows we need to clean up state government yet my opponent sided with the party bosses and gave a green light to more corruption and cronyism on Beacon Hill. It is especially troubling when I consider my opponent has publicly admitted he is one of the insiders who has obtained jobs for people.”
