The Rhode Island connections to team Obama are well known and documented. President Obama and Eric Holder consider Governor Chafee and Senator Sheldon as comrades and allies. As John DePetro points out, all men share a deep hatred of the Tea Party and act like they are above the law.
Sheldon has made it very clear to President Obama he expects to be appointed to the Supreme Court, and Gov Gump has offered up Rhode Island to Obama has a testing ground for their progressive agenda.
Former Senate President Joseph Montalbano comes back to collect on some old favors by going for his promised Judgeship. John DePetro says,"Montalbano is everything wrong with " insider" dealings in Rhode Island and had to pay $ 12 grand to get rid of a shakedown he was involved with ( casino) He felt an obligation to grab every dime in sight.. Montalbano was knocked out of office by Senator Ed O' Neil , because Joey was a transparent crook. As Senate President, Montalbano would put the heat on each city and town to use his law firm for a title search. Montalbano was the ultimate conflict of interest and him getting a judgeship would be everything wrong with the state .
