So no one was surprised when the FBI arrested Wilkerson yesterday on charges of bribery and extortion after a lengthy joint investigation with the Boston Police Department.
The question is: Why didn’t the FBI and the Boston Police ever inform Gov. Deval Patrick that this locally-infamous politician was being investigated? Maybe because Patrick has been strongly supporting Diane Wilkerson's write-in campaign for State Senate (she recently lost the Democratic nomination to a Hispanic activist). Click here to listen to Patrick’s robo-call on Wilkerson’s behalf juxtaposed with FBI photos of Wilkerson accepting bribes, including a priceless pic of her stuffing cash into her bra during a fancy luncheon.
Scary stuff when you consider, as I previously wrote, that Deval Patrick is well-positioned to be Attorney General in a future Obama White House.
