It’s Good To Live In A Two-Daily Town (Chuck Turner Edition)

Saturday Boston Globe Page One:

Turner found guilty of accepting cash bribe

Chuck Turner, the fiery civil rights activist who has been a city councilor for more than a decade, was convicted yesterday of all the charges at his federal corruption trial, a verdict that seems likely to end his political career and lead to a significant prison sentence.

The jury rejected Turner’s assertion on the stand that he could not remember his encounter with a Boston businessman, secretly captured on FBI video, when the councilor allegedly accepted a $1,000 bribe.

Saturday Boston Herald Page One:

You’d think the demise of Turner (D-Planet Chuck) would be mother’s milk to the feisty local tabloid, but apparently the editors would rather whack Patrick than yuck about Chuck.

Go figure.

    Turner is small potatoes, and not up for reelection. Patrick, OTOH, is running hard, and marginally ahead by most estimates. You see where the Herald’s priorities are.
