It Ain’t What You Know, It is Who You Know.


And if you worked for the incoming governor of the state of Massachusetts, Deval Patrick, you do not have to go to trial for drunk driving. And if that is not enough, through in that your husband was an advisor to President Clinton and all your troubles go away.

Patrick_devalSuzanne Magaziner, a Patrick campaign organizer married to ex-Clinton adviser Ira Magaziner, was busted April 4 in Mansfield after a trucker spotted her swerving on Interstate 95, the Sun Chronicle of Attleboro reported.

State police who pulled over Magaziner, 54, said she had bloodshot eyes, alcohol on her breath and failed sobriety tests. She also reportedly blew a .12 on a breath-alcohol test, which is above the state’s legal limit of .08. via the Boston Herald

Of course, the timing of the dropping f the charges was purely coincidental. The Friday before New Years is the biggest news day of the year. Not.

But the case was tossed out of Attleboro District Court on Friday at the request of a prosecutor from Bristol District Attorney Paul F. Walsh Jr.’s Office. The prosecutor, Roger Ferris, told the Sun Chronicle the case was dismissed at the request of his superiors.

Neither Ferris nor officials from Walsh’s office returned calls.

So the trick to getting out of DWI in Massachusetts after blowing a .12 and failing all of the sobriety tests is not getting a good lawyer and looking for a technicality. It is getting close to an ex President and the Incoming Governor. Then you will get justice.

Looks like Massachusetts is getting the government they deserve, although I doubt the incoming Governor did not put these perks in his campaign literature.

      This is my beef about the American system. As great and as well as our system works…there is still more than enough corruption for those with connections – whether politically or through the judiciary.

      Several years back, an attorney of mine recommended that I donate money to both Republican and Democrat politicians. I was puzzled…and he told me that some day you may need a favor and having buttered up the politicians would give you access.

      Keep in mind. Most of our politicians are attorneys too. Many Attorneys and judges, though putting a positive face to the public, are about as slimey as Paulus and his black robed buddies in Aruba. Its not about ethics…its about what you can get away with and paper over without getting caught. A sick culture and I would challenge any attorney that might read this to object and counter with their opinion.

      Again, our system, though corrupt in many ways, is still the greatest in the world because every once and a while the system gets exposed and has to come clean or else our MS media (which also cowtows to these folks) will take them down.

      Minnesota Dad:

      I agree. It just makes me wonder… how effective is a government, if even, it’s own hands are dirty?

      Perhaps, in Aruba, justice is handed out, not just on the merits of who you know, but also, WHAT you know.

      patti, i think justice on aruba depends on who you are, what your know about them, and what they know about you, as well as what you’ve done together that you don’t want anybody to know.

      Hey, it worked for Ted Kennedy, if not for Mary Jo Kopechne….
