Nutshell Library: Boston Mayoral Race Edition

What you need to know about the current state of the Boston mayoral race:

1) Here’s what Mayor Thomas M. Menino told the Boston Globe about the runaway Emaul-gate at City Hall, in which public records were treated like Kleenex, thereby occasioning an official state investigation:

Menino said in an interview [Monday] night, “I’ll cooperate with anybody, because this was an honest mistake made by the administration.’’

Made by the administration? What happened to my admnistration, Mr. Four-Term Mayor?

2) The website response of Boston mayoral challenger and City Council member Sam Yoon? A written statement.

3) The website response of Boston mayoral challenger and City Council member Michael Flaherty? Links to Globe pieces and a boilerplate Featured Video of his TV spot, The Courage to Change.

4) The website response of bombthrowing Boston mayoral challenger Kevin McCrea? Absolutely nothing. (UPDATE: On the home page, that is. McCrea addresses the issue on his blog. Hat tip: Adam Gaffin of Universal Hub.)

The current state of the Boston mayoral race?

Tom Menino: Mayor For Life by default.

    That’s a little unfair to McCrea, the only candidate who actually gets this whole blogging thing. You need to look at his blog, where you’ll find plenty about e-mail.

      You’re right about McCrea’s blogging being superior, Adam, but my criticism was about his home page, which presumably more people would see.
