Statement Regarding Probation Trial Verdict

BOSTON — Today, the MassGOP Chairman, Kirsten Hughes released the following statement regarding the Probation Trial verdict:

“What kind of rotten atmosphere exists on Beacon Hill that forced public employees to break federal law and commit conspiracy and wire fraud in order to appease a Legislature dominated by Democrats in exchange for budget increases? Today’s guilty verdict proves that it’s time to end politics as usual here in the Commonwealth. Since Attorney General Martha Coakley refuses to take action against the unindicted co-conspirators, then it is up to the voters to end the corruption on Beacon Hill by electing new leaders.”
