Deval Patrick:  Ungoverned by the Constitution



NEWS RELEASE

January 2, 2007
 
I favor ending this petition initiative promptly. If adjournment can accomplish that, so be it.
 
-- Governor-elect Deval Patrick -- Statement, January 2, 2007
 
The man who is about to become the next Governor of the Commonwealth, who will take an oath pledging to uphold the state Constitution, today has stated that the Constitution should be violated and is lobbying the legislative leadership to violate it.
 
Apparently when he takes his oath of office on Thursday he will be intentionally committing perjury.
 
Citizens for Limited Taxation, in its concern for Article 48 of the Constitution, will file a complaint with the Massachusetts Board of Bar Overseers, asking that appropriate sanctions be administered against any and all attorneys/government officials who violate their oaths -- both as attorneys and as public officials.
