For a guy who was Administration & Finance Secretary for four years, Charlie Baker’s not so good with numbers.
Witness his latest TV spot in the Massachusetts governor’s race.
Did you get that?
21,000 Massachusetts jobs lost last month alone. The greatest jobs loss in 20 years. Enough to empty most of Fenway.
The visual: An aerial shot of Fenway Park with the crowd wiped from left (field) to right.
Only problem: Depending on your source, the official capacity of the Lyric Little Bandbox is 37,373 or 37,402 or 38,805 or 39,928.
Even taking the lowest number, 21,000 is 56% of capacity. Hardly “most of Fenway.”
Is this the worst distortion Baker has foisted on the Bay State public during the last 15 months?
But it might be the most insulting.
