Public Disservice 

Lt. Governor Kerry Healey, who stated she was acting on behalf of Governor Romney, has called upon John Kerry to resign his senate seat. This request is based on the amount of time Kerry has been absent from Senate votes during his presidential campaign.

"It's not fair, it's not right and the public is not being well-served," said Healey, who said she was acting on behalf of Gov. Mitt Romney. "I'm calling on John Kerry to resign so that we can fill that office with someone who is 100 percent devoted to the job of representing the people of Massachusetts."

I'm so glad that the governor's office continues the long-standing support of adequately representing the interests of the people of Massachusetts. And I'm sure it has nothing whatsoever to do with the fact that should Kerry resign, Gov. Romney (a Republican) would then appoint the replacement, who would serve until 2008.
