Representative Wolf responds on Monteiro

Bob reports:

On November 16, 2009, I printed a report concerning a filing of legislation by Representative Alice Wolf which seemed to relate to the Monteiro case, and concerning the City of Cambridge’s latest con game initiative on the environment.

The title was “Con games on Monteiro and the Environment?"

I commented:

“People talking about the outrages going on or planned on the Charles River commonly have reacted with the comment, or the equivalent: “They would never stoop so low.”

“The reason for this reaction is the non stop bragging from the Cambridge City Council and their friends about their holiness. Altogether too often, the claims of sainthood are not only false but exactly the opposite of reality.”

I characterized Representative Wolf’s initiative as “ambiguous,” the City of Cambridge’s initiative as a “very clear instance” of yet another con game.

I have received the following email from Representative Wolf, sent late the evening of November 30:


"I happened to see your piece on Wolf and Monteiro.

“In case you are uninformed, I testified at both trials on behalf of Monteiro, largely around city government structural issues as requested by her lawyer.
