Henriquez and Lunenburg Nothing (Useful) to see here...

Yes­ter­day Car­los Hen­riquez made the front page of the Boston Her­ald:

Inmate law­maker Rep. Car­los Hen­riquez is doing his Bea­con Hill busi­ness from his Bil­ler­ica jail cell, thumb­ing through bills and bud­get pro­pos­als, and speak­ing to staff by phone “at least once a day,” accord­ing to the dis­graced Dorch­ester Democrat’s leg­isla­tive aide.

We’ve been in reg­u­lar con­tact with him, and at this point he’s con­cerned with the issues of the dis­trict,” aide Jes­sica DaSilva told the Herald.

Prison is a pretty bor­ing place so Hen­riquez is lucky to have all this leg­isla­tive and con­stituent busi­ness to keep his day full.

DaSilva said Henriquez’s office is field­ing four or five con­stituent calls a day, mostly from peo­ple con­cerned about cuts to unem­ploy­ment ben­e­fits. She said Hen­riquez also has been review­ing bud­get amend­ments, though she would not say which.

If noth­ing else it means the vot­ers know where he is 247 and he has time to read the bills if he so chooses.

Now to me A law­maker con­victed of assault­ing a women who refused him sex and had to escape his car in the wee hours of the morn­ing is, in the era of the “war on woman” a national story, that same law­maker refus­ing to resign is even more so but that law­maker on the front page of a state news­pa­per doing leg­isla­tive work from in prison while refus­ing to resign? How does that not lead?

For the same rea­son as this story out of Lunen­burg will get very lit­tle press:

There is not enough evi­dence to charge the prime sus­pect in a racist graf­fiti case that rocked Lunen­burg late last year, Worces­ter County Dis­trict Attor­ney Joseph D. Early, Jr. said Wednesday.

No charges?

We have noti­fied the Lunen­burg Police Depart­ment that the evi­dence pre­sented to us fails to demon­strate beyond a rea­son­able doubt that a crime has been com­mit­ted by a par­tic­u­lar per­son,” wrote Early in an email his office has been send­ing to Lunen­burg res­i­dents who have inquired about the case.

But this story was big news, it even appeared on national TV shows,

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player

How can this be? The base story appeared in papers as far away as Atlanta Ga & Lon­don Eng­land, it made SI.

Yet the DA’s office has sud­denly decided that the rea­son­able doubt stan­dard that used to apply to juries in the case replaces the “ham sand­wich” stan­dard that nor­mally applies to indictments.

Now it could be that the DA decided that it would be a waste of tax­payer money, and that a con­vic­tion is unlikely but given the reach of the story such a deci­sion would nat­u­rally gen­er­ate press around the world, and sto­ries full of out­rage, a DA would nor­mally be wor­ried about that kind of thing and be pre­pared to answer a lot of tough ques­tion from reporters around the world.

I sus­pect he is not.

You see the pri­mary sus­pect in this story is no longer the largely white foot­ball team in a small town but the mother of the sup­posed tar­get of the racist graf­fiti. It is no longer a story about racism, it is about yet another race hoax. If the team had still been the sus­pect and racism been the theme and the DA a repub­li­can the deci­sion to not press charges would be a source of national out­rage and cov­er­age but remem­ber the rule we stated yesterday.

I sub­mit & sug­gest it’s because all of these sto­ries involve Democ­rats and their national memes and Democ­rats under­stand that when it comes to such sto­ries MSM imme­di­ately rec­og­nizes them as unnewsworthy.

So like the Demo­c­rat com­bat­ant in the war on women cur­rently doing his leg­isla­tive work behind bars, the race hoaxer who turned her com­mu­nity upside down with a phony race card and the Democrat’s DA deci­sion not to pros­e­cute are sim­ply not newsworthy.

Mean­while my ques­tion from last month still stands:

Where does the town of Lunen­burg go to get their rep­u­ta­tion back, where does the foot­ball team go to get their Thanks­giv­ing game back and who pays for all the police, local state and fed­eral that were used in the attempt to sell this BS?

noth­ing to see here, move along.

Exit ques­tion: While one can argue that the fam­ily in the small town is now marked and suf­fered enough what sort of incen­tive is cre­ated for the next race hoaxer who wants to destroy a per­son or a town’s rep­u­ta­tion for per­sonal or polit­i­cal rea­sons when they know they are unlikely to face any legal consequence?

Update: The Par­ents of some of the boys who were ini­tially impli­cated are none too happy

I said it before and I’ll say it again, the peo­ple that are respon­si­ble for this are cow­ards,” Szabady said. “You know, to do some­thing like this and blame it on kids and just sit back and watch? You’re a cow­ard. And the law will even­tu­ally catch up to you.”

Or per­haps not.

By an odd coin­ci­dence the AG of Mass­a­chu­setts is run­ning for gov­er­nor. I won­der if such a case, if pros­e­cuted might be prob­lem­atic dur­ing the cam­paign? Then again maybe there is hope

The Lunen­burg Police Chief tells WBZ-​TV that fed­eral charges could be filed.

Yeah I’m sure Eric Holder will get right on that one.

Mean­while Stacy McCain has dis­cov­ered another perp that doesn’t fit the media’s template.

Update 2: Glenn Reynolds linked to the Boston Her­ald Story above. Does that mean national repub­li­cans will finally use this as a weapon in the war on women BS? If they do and it gets repeated on any national show I pre­dict pres­sure from national democ­rats will have Hen­riquez out of office so fast it will make your head swim.

Update 3: Why is Hen­riquez not resign­ing after assault­ing a women who refused him sex? Maybe we should ask his mom San­dra Hen­riquez Assis­tant Sec­re­tary for Pub­lic and Indian Hous­ing for the Obama administration.

Yesterday Carlos Henriquez made the front page of the Boston Herald:

Inmate lawmaker Rep. Carlos Henriquez is 
doing his Beacon Hill business from his Billerica jail cell, thumbing through bills and budget proposals, and speaking to staff by phone “at least once a day,” 
according to the disgraced Dorchester Democrat’s legislative aide.

“We’ve been in regular contact with him, and at this point he’s concerned with the issues of the district,” aide Jessica DaSilva told the Herald.

Prison is a pretty boring place so Henriquez is lucky to have all this legislative and constituent business to keep his day full.

DaSilva said Henriquez’s office is fielding four or five constituent calls a day, mostly from people concerned about cuts to unemployment benefits. She said Henriquez also has been reviewing budget amendments, though she would not say which.

If nothing else it means the voters know where he is 24/7 and he has time to read the bills if he so chooses.

Now to me A lawmaker convicted of assaulting a women who refused him sex and had to escape his car in the wee hours of the morning is, in the era of the “war on woman” a national story, that same lawmaker refusing to resign is even more so but that lawmaker on the front page of a state newspaper doing legislative work from in prison while refusing to resign? How does that not lead?

For the same reason as this story out of Lunenburg will get very little press:

There is not enough evidence to charge the prime suspect in a racist graffiti case that rocked Lunenburg late last year, Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early, Jr. said Wednesday.

No charges?

“We have notified the Lunenburg Police Department that the evidence presented to us fails to demonstrate beyond a reasonable doubt that a crime has been committed by a particular person,” wrote Early in an email his office has been sending to Lunenburg residents who have inquired about the case.

But this story was big news, it even appeared on national TV shows,

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player

How can this be? The base story appeared in papers as far away as Atlanta Ga & London England, it made SI.

Yet the DA’s office has suddenly decided that the reasonable doubt standard that used to apply to juries in the case replaces the “ham sandwich” standard that normally applies to indictments.

Now it could be that the DA decided that it would be a waste of taxpayer money, and that a conviction is unlikely but given the reach of the story such a decision would naturally generate press around the world, and stories full of outrage, a DA would normally be worried about that kind of thing and be prepared to answer a lot of tough question from reporters around the world.

I suspect he is not.

You see the primary suspect in this story is no longer the largely white football team in a small town but the mother of the supposed target of the racist graffiti. It is no longer a story about racism, it is about yet another race hoax. If the team had still been the suspect and racism been the theme and the DA a republican the decision to not press charges would be a source of national outrage and coverage but remember the rule we stated yesterday.

I submit & suggest it’s because all of these stories involve Democrats and their national memes and Democrats understand that when it comes to such stories MSM immediately recognizes them as unnewsworthy.

So like the Democrat combatant in the war on women currently doing his legislative work behind bars, the race hoaxer who turned her community upside down with a phony race card and the Democrat’s DA decision not to prosecute are simply not newsworthy.

Meanwhile my question from last month still stands:

Where does the town of Lunenburg go to get their reputation back, where does the football team go to get their Thanksgiving game back and who pays for all the police, local state and federal that were used in the attempt to sell this BS?

nothing to see here, move along.

Exit question: While one can argue that the family in the small town is now marked and suffered enough what sort of incentive is created for the next race hoaxer who wants to destroy a person or a town’s reputation for personal or political reasons when they know they are unlikely to face any legal consequence?

Update: The Parents of some of the boys who were initially implicated are none too happy

“I said it before and I’ll say it again, the people that are responsible for this are cowards,” Szabady said. “You know, to do something like this and blame it on kids and just sit back and watch? You’re a coward. And the law will eventually catch up to you.”

Or perhaps not.

By an odd coincidence the AG of Massachusetts is running for governor. I wonder if such a case, if prosecuted might be problematic during the campaign? Then again maybe there is hope

The Lunenburg Police Chief tells WBZ-TV that federal charges could be filed.

Yeah I’m sure Eric Holder will get right on that one.

Meanwhile Stacy McCain has discovered another perp that doesn’t fit the media’s template.

Update 2: Glenn Reynolds linked to the Boston Herald Story above. Does that mean national republicans will finally use this as a weapon in the war on women BS? If they do and it gets repeated on any national show I predict pressure from national democrats will have Henriquez out of office so fast it will make your head swim.

Update 3: Why is Henriquez not resigning after assaulting a women who refused him sex? Maybe we should ask his mom Sandra Henriquez Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing for the Obama administration.
