My faith is being restored!! Martha still has the lead but it is very close. She came out fighting Baker's eye popping paid for by the Republican party's scurrilous, mendacious and mean attack against Martha Coakley's efforts in prosecuting child abuse cases. He downright lied. So what else is new in Republican land? That is what Republicans do ... they LIE ALL THE TIME. Martha was was by joined by Deborah Eappen mother of Mathew Eappen who died while in Louise Woodward's care and she supports Martha whole heartedly and calls her one of the most ardent fighters against child abuse and for children that Massachusetts has seen and she should know as Martha Coakley was front and center on the Woodward case and its prosecution!
I call this the "hatchet moment." I named it after the know nothing Scott Brown who accused the great Elizabeth Warren (who of course supports Martha Coakley) about Warren's Indian heritage by slurring her and his cronies waxing into a RACIST Indian war hoop chant. Scott Brown lost the election for Senate and I believe it was at that moment he blew it and even more so because Warren was light years better than Brown.
Likewise Martha Coakley is LIGHT YEARS better and more qualified than Baker. Baker and his Republican cronies said the WRONG THING at the worst possible time. It is going to be his downfall. He BLEW IT!! So, GET OUT THE VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS EVERYWHERE, WORK FOR AND ELECT MARTHA COAKLEY THE NEXT GOVERNOR OF THIS FABULOUS STATE OF MASSACHUSETTS and send Baker packing like we did Scott the know nothing Brown!!!!
The article is in the Globe is pasted below send this email to anyone you choose especially Democrats everywhere to GET OUT THE VOTE! Those who are out of state get out to vote -- and do not step on your own toes. VOTE the ONLY party that is for the 98%, the Democratic Party!
Coakley ‘disgusted’ by TV ad, calls on Baker to condemn it
SOMERVILLE -- A visibly angry Martha Coakley on Thursday demanded that Republican rival Charlie Baker condemn an outside group’s television advertisement that accuses the Democratic attorney general of not doing enough to protect children.
Coakley, who at one point choked up discussing her work on behalf of an abused youngster, called on Baker to seek the removal of the advertisement, which is paid for in part by the Republican Governors Association. The ad blames Coakley for failures in the state Department of Children and Families, or DCF, which resulted in the deaths and abuse of children.
“That is absolutely over the top, it’s outrageous, and I am disgusted by it,” said Coakley, who was flanked at her Somerville campaign headquarters by Debbie Eappen, the mother of Matthew Eappen, the 8-month-old who died in the care of his nanny, Louise Woodward, in 1997. Coakley prosecuted the case against Woodward.
She was also joined today by Democratic attorney general candidate Maura Healey, a former Coakley aide.
Coakley accused Republicans of “using child abuse as a political football.”
In response, Baker’s campaign did not directly address whether they would ask for the ad to be removed. Spokesman Tim Buckley said in an e-mail that Coakley “has yet to explain to voters her decision to fight child protection advocates seeking to reform a broken DCF that has placed the Commonwealth’s defenseless children in harm’s way. While Coakley defended the embattled agency and refused to call for the commissioner’s resignation,” he wrote, “Charlie Baker proposed a detailed plan to immediately fix the broken agency.”
Polls show Coakley and Baker essentially tied in the race for governor, with less than five weeks remaining before the Nov. 4 election.
Earlier in the campaign, Coakley had called on Baker to sign a pact designed to limit outside advertising, which Baker declined. Asked Thursday whether she would insist that anti-Baker super PAC ads funded by her allies be removed, Coakley demurred.
An aide later said that Coakley was not asking for Baker to call for the removal of other GOP super PAC ads, just the one discussing child abuse.
