Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick is so far Left that he makes Barry look like a centrist (any wonder him and Barry are good pals going back to their days in Chicago). Recently Patrick smeared Republicans who criticize Obama as "almost at the level of sedition", he supports homosexual marriage (no wonder he readily accepted his own daughter's "coming out" party), embryonic stem-cell research and even reversed a decision by previous Governor Mitt Romney allowing police officers to arrest and detain any illegal immigrant found during investigations into matters related to immigration:
A car crash involving a state lawmaker and a suspected illegal immigrant has now landed in the middle of the 2010 governor's race.
Republican Charlie Baker today told FOX25 that the Incident should convince Gov. Patrick to reverse a 2007 order stripping state police's immigration enforcement powers.
Patrick just told FOX25 he stands by his 2007 order and accused Baker of playing politics.
State Rep. Mike Moran of Brighton was rear-ended by a suspected illegal immigrant last week. The suspect was wearing a Mexican costume at the time of the crash where he slammed into Moran at 60 mph.
The suspect, 27-year-old Isaias Naranjo, was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, leaving the scene of an accident and driving without a valid license. According to the report, when told of the serious charges he would be facing, he just laughed.
But because of action taken by Gov. Deval Patrick, state police were unable to notify immigration authorities that Naranjo might be illegal.
This radical, far-Left loon is up for re-election this year and despite a 45% approval rating, is still leading the race by a wide margin. Weird that voters in the same state that gave us Scott Brown's epic upset win would want to continue putting up with the likes of Patrick, a man who puts ideologue first and what's best for his state a distant second.
