Clinton tactics reduce voter turnout

I am completely disgusted with Massachusetts Speaker of the House Sal DiMasi’s and Bill and Hillary Clinton’s politics as usual—self-aggrandizement at the expense of the party and the voters as a whole. Tearing down opponents only reduces voter turnout, which is just fine for candidates who take money from and amply reward their special interest supporters.

Who does DiMasi think he is to block at every turn the mandate voters gave Gov. Deval Patrick? Why is he protecting corporate interests in a way that few other states do? Why are the Clintons playing the race and gender cards? Because Hillary has her solid 40 percent and no one else. They have to reduce turnout to win.

Let all voters rise up, unite and take back our government from negative, divisive special interest politicians who care only about themselves.
