Mass. Governor Embroiled in Scandals After Only 10 Weeks in Office

Mar 15, 2007 — BOSTON (Reuters) - Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick announced a shake-up of his 10-week-old administration on Thursday following weeks of bad press and missteps that have plagued the state's first Democratic governor in 16 years.

"There is a lot of work to be done to deliver on the people's expectations for change — including a government that is more responsive to their needs," Patrick, the second black elected governor in U.S. history, said in a statement.

The changes include the resignation of a $72,000-a-year aide Patrick had hired for his wife — a position that sparked weeks of controversy and criticism of the governor — and the hiring of new communications and political advisors.

It's pretty amazing how much trouble this guy has gotten into in such a short period of time. Now apparently his wife has now suffered a an emotional breakdown as well, I guess from all the stress.

Deval seems to lack any kind of political brain its a wonder he was even elected. Either that or he is just plain corrupt. Politicians usually have a honeymoon period after being elected the fact that Deval missed out on this seems to indicate that he is in for a long ride.
