"I am telling you I don't know what to believe," the son of former Senate President William Bulger testified last month.
Perhaps he could have found some proof when the probation agency's legislative liaison, Maria Walsh, pointed to a list of candidates, sponsored by politicians, on her computer screen at work. Bulger said he advised her to turn the list over to the independent counsel. He said he didn't look at it himself. But he told Commissioner O'Brien about it.
"I -- again, what I -- the feeling I had --" he stammered when asked to explain how he described the list to O'Brien without having seen it.
Ware concluded that many of Bulger's answers were "blatantly false," and that he should be considered for termination, criminal investigation, and sanction by the Board of Bar Overseers.
