6. Didn't his ministries get involved in some sort of
scandal with adults and kids and sex a couple years ago?
I'm not sure, but I think I remember this.
In a state with the first legalized gay marriages, I'm sure he will do well among the few thousands of homophobes that are still alive to vote in 2014.
I think after so many years electing Barney Frank, and when the Governor marches in the Boston Gay Pride parade with his daughter, and when the Boston Mayor marched in that parade as well, along with several other elected officials, Massachusetts has plenty of room for everyone to run for office, including the haters and their very few remaining supporters
