Resolved: Governor Patrick will take responsibility for at least one of the scandals that erupted on his watch in 2012
Governor Patrick, let’s make a deal. You can pick any of the crises that confronted your administration this past year and take responsibility for just one of them. This is a generous offer so, we hope you’ll see the wisdom of falling on your sword for at least one of the following debacles:
1. A nationwide fungal meningitis outbreak tied to the New England Compounding Center in Framingham that has killed 39 people so far;
2. A scandal at a state drug lab that has already led to the releae from jail of 159 drug defendants;
3. The hiring of Sheila Burgess as state highway safety director, despite a driving record including seven accidents, four speeding violations and two failures to stop for a police officer.
Your move, Governor.
