07.01.2009 | BOSTON -- Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick signs an ethics bill at the Statehouse, in Boston as then-Attorney General Martha Coakley, and then-state Sen. Brian Joyce, D-Milton look on. The bill was designed to prevent a repeat of scandals involving lawmakers by banning lobbyists from giving gifts to state lawmakers, banning lawmakers from accepting gifts, and by sharply increasing the penalty for bribery. Joyce was charged Friday, Dec. 8, 2017, with using his office for personal profit by accepting up to $1 million in bribes and kickbacks and hiding the money in a shell company and disguising it as "legal fees."

There were TV trucks out on Hinckley Road in Milton last night, but the good news is it wasn’t because the guy at No. 75 had just been nominated for the Supreme Court.
The better news is that the live-shot vans arrived because Deval Patrick’s neighbor at 95 Hinckley Road, state Sen. Brian “Multiple Choice” Joyce, had just had his law offices raided by a posse of FBI and IRS agents.

Welcome to the swamp, Frank.
You know who’s taking in the most green $ from the $4bn Green Tax imbedded in the Green Communities Act sponsored by Sal DiMasi, MA former, and third consecutive convicted felon MA House Speaker? Jay Cashman. He’s doing the marine word we “need” for renewables.
DiMasi held a private meeting at the State House on October 18, 2008 with his friend, Boston developer Jay Cashman. DiMasi had earlier been instrumental in keeping alive a liquefied natural gas facility that Cashman sold the land for and walked away with $14 million profit. John DeVillars, former state environmental secretary, a consultant working for Cashman, and two top aides to DiMasi were present at the October meeting. The discussion was about easing permitting rules for wind farms in Massachusetts waters, legislation that would benefit Jay Cashman. One month later, DiMasi inserted language into an energy bill that would loosen permitting rules that would make it easier for Cashman to build an offshore wind project. While Cashman has not yet driven a pile offshore for a wind project, Cashman Equipment Website represents they have (4) wind energy installation vessels and barges under construction. Curiously, Cashman Equipment Website states, "Contract Amount: $0". And, the customer and supplier is "Jay" Cashman Equipment. Please note that NO wind energy nature details on the mentioned "ABS" are provided by Cashman Equipment Website "Barge Building Program". Yet, ABS announced on May 10, 2010 their, "new notation for these specialized units, Wind IMR" that supports offshore wind energy development.
Marine Commerce Terminal New Bedford is reported to cost us $130 million. But, a local contractor who’s familiar with the deal states cost is $150-160 million based on contract conditions.

“Cashman Dredging and Marine Co., of Quincy, and New Jersey-based Weeks Marine Inc. filed a 23 million dollar civil complaint July 22 in Suffolk County Superior Court in Boston. ( Jay Cashman- Sal DiMasi are they still friends )
The litigation alleges that MassCEC misrepresented the scope and conditions of dredging work
October 6 according to court records the defendant, Massachusetts Clean Energy Center answered with a counter claim.
And then there’s Patriot Renewables.
Massachusetts State Senator Joyce gave up his leadership posts in the Senate amid an ethics probe and now 130 pages of federal complaints. The arrest of a former state senator follows a tumultuous week for the State House chamber.

Sal DiMasi Massachusetts Convicted House Speaker of the House
Massachusetts House Speaker Salvatore F. DiMasi was the architect of Green Communities Act which set a goal of 2000 megawatts of renewable commercial wind turbine power by the year 2020 in the state.
The 2008 Green Communities Act was misguided legislation that has led to massive wind turbine lawsuits all over Massachusetts.
Sal DiMasi was sentenced to eight years in federal prison for his conviction on political corruption charges.
DiMasi has been trying to use the political get out jail free card since his conviction. U.S. District Court Judge Mark Wolf has stopped another attempt to get an early release based on medical conditions.
Massachusetts politicians have to look at the wake of lawsuits over commercial wind turbines in at least twenty one communities caused by the land based renewable energy goals crippling the health and property rights of Massachusetts citizens caused by Sal DiMasi and the Green Communities Act
