Martha Coakley is my State's Attorney general. She is running for senate, election is next Tuesday. Last nite one of her aides assaulted a reporter. She has yet to address the issue.
As Attorney general should she not have reported the assault she witnessed.
and yet, you seemed surprised. As a liberal democrat she has no need to address the issue. There will be no reprocussions and in a week she can blatantly state that it never happened and is all part of a smear campaign by her opponent.
It is on video they already claimed the gentleman tripped and the nice humble aide was just giving him assistance. Like a Mafia strongarm help LOL
Naturally. The best quote I've heard was from the debate:
Brown - 'This is not Kennedy's seat, or the Democrats seat, its the peoples seat.' Wham!
It is an election in Massachusetts to fill the people's seat vacated by Kennedy.
Yes, until three years ago, I was born, bred, and buttered there.
Where in Ma are you from?
My wife used to spend her summers there as a child she has a lot of family in Chicopee.
So do I. Well, duh, yeah, I would. You're from the East then?
I live in Fall River Yeah (Lizzie Borden) LOL
My sister and her husband lived there for a few years before moving mid-state, um Commonwealth.
We just elected the youngest mayor in the cities history. Our unemployment is close to 20% We are losing businesses quickly.
This is funny.

The campaigns are both in attack mode although it seems Brown is taking the higher ground. Coakley ads are brutal.
The reporters story in his own words from Weeklystandard.com
We Report, We Get Pushed
Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate Martha Coakley attended a fundraiser at the Capitol Hill restaurant Sonoma tonight. After the event concluded, Coakley took two questions from the media but declined to say whether or not she stands by her statement at last night's debate that there aren't any terrorists in Afghanistan (and that they've all gone to Pakistan or Yemen).
After taking a question from a CNN reporter on the street outside the restaurant, I asked her:
TWS: Attorney General Coakley, you said last night that there are no terrorists in Afghanistan--that they're all in Yemen and Pakistan. Do you stand by that remark?
COAKLEY: I'm sorry, did someone else have a question?
GRIFF JENKINS, Fox News: I did. Why are you in Washington tonight?
COAKLEY: We planned an event after the primary that would be a unity event in Washington. We're also in the middle of a very intense campaign [...]
After Coakley finished her answer, she began walking away from the restaurant, and I walked behind her asking why health care industry lobbyists were supporting her at the fundraiser. She didn't reply.
As I walked down the street, a man who appeared to be associated with the Coakley campaign pushed me into a freestanding metal railing. I ended up on the sidewalk. I was fine. He helped me up from the ground, but kept pushing up against me, blocking my path toward Coakley down the street.
He asked if I was with the media, and I told him I work for THE WEEKLY STANDARD. When I asked him who he worked for he replied, "I work for me." He demanded to see my credentials, and even though it was a public street, I showed them to him.
I eventually got around him and met up with the attorney general halfway down the block.
"Attorney General, could I ask you a question please?" I said. "We're done, thanks," Coakley replied. She walked back toward the restaurant, apparently searching for her car. She remained silent as I (politely) repeated my question.
Coakley staffers told me they didn't know who the man was who pushed me, though by every indication he was somehow connected to the campaign.
