Hey, there’s a gubernatorial election this year …
 
Speaking of gubernatorial races (past and present), the Herald’s Howie Carr, coming from the conservative right, asks: “What exactly has Charlie Baker accomplished as governor?” But the Herald’s Joe Battenfeld is basically asking: What are the three gubernatorial candidates doing? His answer: “Flailing away, failing to stir up much money or interest in their uphill battle to unseat Baker.”


The politics of riding the T
 
It’s an issue, albeit a small one, that probably will never go away for Gov. Charlie Baker, to wit: Why doesn’t he ride the T? His answer, as SHNS’s Colin Young reports (pay wall), is that his schedule doesn’t lend itself to taking the T. In an editorial, the Herald says Baker, a Swampscott resident, should probably ride the T now and then, just to see what riders endure on a daily basis. “But to hound the governor for not relying on mass transit every day to keep his complicated schedule is really just dopey,” the Herald says. Democratic gubernatorial candidates, obviously, have a different viewpoint.
Btw: There was a T train derailment yesterday (MassLive) and a man was struck by an MBTA commuter rail train in Belmont (Globe). Just saying.
 
 
Warren goes after Kushner’s company loans
 
This may spark another round of Pocahontos insults from the president – but we have a feeling Elizabeth Warren doesn’t care. The Massachusetts senator, along with other Democrats, has sent a letter to Apollo and Citigroup asking about the timing of loans to Jared Kushner’s company, Politico is reporting. This is most definitely an escalation in the never-ending fight between Warren and Trump, Kushner’s father-in-law.



Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson MUST BE TOO BUSY BASKING IN THE NATIONAL RIGHT WING SPOTLIGHT TO DO HIS JOB PROPERLY, MAYBE THERE'S A CANDIDATE RUNNING AGAINST HIM....
 
 
Lawsuits keep coming Tom Hodgson’s way
 
There’s now at least four lawsuits filed by family members or current inmates against the Bristol County jail, run by Sheriff Tom Hodgson, alleging the system “fails to care for its mentally ill, drug addicted, and suicidal inmates,” reports Jenifer McKim and Chris Burrell of the New England Center for Investigative Reporting, in a piece published in the Boston Globe. “Each lawsuit claims that jail officials put troubled inmates alone in cells — sometimes for long periods — instead of providing special treatment to deal with mental illness or drug withdrawal.”


DAY LATE CHARLIE! THESE ARE THE OVERPAID INCOMPETENTS YOU PUT IN PLACE
 
 
About that $100,000 bathroom …
 
Appearing on a WAAF radio show, Gov. Charlie Baker said yesterday that he will look into reports of a new $100,00 bathroom and kitchenette at the Department of Transportation’s headquarters building – the bathroom just off the boardroom used by the DOT board of directors and MBTA Fiscal Control Board, reports Gintautas Dumcius at MassLive. WCVB-TV has been pounding away at the story over the past month.
