received this photo and report from a member. He left the
observer/photographer anonymous by request.
state representative drives the below Ford with Massachusetts license plate
House 29? Will he be paying the Massachusetts use tax on all
that booze he bought? I'll bet he will now . . . since being
there ever been a better poster child for "Do as I say, not as I
this tax-evader -- and how stupid can he be?
It has come to our
attention that the state rep who owns the car in the photo below,
Massachusetts license plate House 29, is:
Rep. Michael J. Rodrigues (D-Westport)
Joint Committee on Public Service, Vice-Chair
House Committee on Ways and Means
Joint Committee on Housing
I wonder if these photos
will appear on
. . .

my family and I were driving back from York Beach my wife asked
me to pull off at the NH liquor store on 95 south at the Mass
border. When I pulled around to get a parking space you can
imagine my surprise to see what I could only assume to be a Mass
state rep's car. He also had a Deval Patrick/Tim Murray sticker
on his back window-so I assume he's a democrat who voted in
favor of the recent sales tax hike.
the guy comes out with a couple of cases of booze in his
carriage and loads them into his car. I asked him if this was
"official" business or personal. He was surprised by my
questioning and asked what business is it of mine as to what
he's doing. I told him I was a Mass citizen. He said it was
personal-I pointed out the state car with official plates and he
said it was "his".
didn't ask him WHY he was in NH purchasing alcohol instead of
supporting Mass businesses and the 6.25% tax they just levied on
us common folk...
had his wife with him. I left ahead of him and as I was driving
down 95 into Mass doing the speed limit, he blew by me doing
about 75 in the left lane.
guess those who pass the laws need not abide by them. You would
think that after hours of testimony from Mass businesses saying
how the increased tax and the alcohol tax would hurt them by
causing people go to NH would have had an effect on these
weasels. But, alas, it's proof again that they have no
conscience and only serve their own interests and themselves.
who was this guy? I didn't even want to make him feel good or
important by asking. He asked where I was from and I didn't
answer him. I got into my car and drove away.
