    BOSTON (AP) — There’s the windup, the pitch — and the vote. Election officials in Boston are expected to approve Fenway Park as an early voting venue when they meet Thursday, after Red Sox owner John Henry offered the storied ballpark for voters hesitant to cast ballots indoors. City officials toured the park and have said it meets their guidelines. If formally cleared as a venue, Bostonians could vote at Fenway on Oct. 17 and 18.

Gonzalez discovered that the Black Futures Lab donation page explicitly states they are “a fiscally sponsored project of the Chinese Progressive Association,” explaining where donations to Black Futures Lab are funneled.

    A recount could be looming in the 4th Congressional District race between two Democrats as more uncounted ballots surfaced on Thursday. Officials in Newton, Wellesley and Franklin on Thursday restarted counting primary ballots after Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin filed a court order to authorize local poll workers to continue counting ballots that were received on time and had not been tallied by the end of Tuesday night. In Franklin, poll workers Thursday evening were counting about 3,000 uncounted ballots — much more than the previously estimated 600 uncounted ballots, according to a spokeswoman for the Secretary of the...

    New York Times columnist Paul Krugman is the latest journalist to mockingly downplay the violence that has plagued some American cities. Krugman on Wednesday shared observations he made during his run in New York City. “I went for a belated NYC run this morning, and am sorry to report that I saw very few black-clad anarchists. Also, the city is not yet in flames,” the economist wrote on Twitter. “The political question of the day is whether Trump can win politically by hammering on a nonexistent crisis of order in America’s cities. You would think not, but I’m not 100%...

    A Boston priest has apologized for a social media post in which he described himself as “pro-choice” and endorsed former vice president Joe Biden. The post, made Sunday, received widespread media attention and prompted a statement from Cardinal Sean O’Malley. “Please accept my apology for the confusion and upset caused by the Facebook post concerning the presidential election and expectant women carrying their children to birth,” wrote Monsignor Paul Garrity, pastor of the Lexington Catholic Community parish, on Facebook the evening of August 27. In his original Aug. 23 Facebook post titled “I AM PRO-LIFE AND SUPPORT JOE BIDEN,” Msgr....

    Priest of Archd. of Boston – @bostoncatholic – openly supports the abortion position of Dems and #Biden2020 I say… suspend the jackass now.If nothing else this priest in Boston is committing the sin of scandal, by leading people to think that support of abortion – which is the sacramental plank of the Party of Death’s platform – is anywhere near acceptable for a Catholic. Scandal is any action or its omission, not necessarily sinful in itself, that is likely to induce another to do something morally wrong. Direct scandal, also called diabolical, has the deliberate intention to induce another to...

    If you happen to be an aspiring domestic terrorist, particularly in or around Boston, with a hankering to blow up a marathon or some other large, public event, it’s been a pretty good week for you. First we learned that Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s death penalty sentence has been revoked. (At least temporarily.) And now we find out that the elite Boston Transit SWAT team that was widely celebrated for bringing Tsarnaev to justice has been unceremoniously disbanded. Officers assigned to the highly-trained unit were told to turn in their special equipment and return to more regular duty. (CBS...
  • Boston Marathon Bomber’s Death Sentence Overturned by Federal Appeals Court

    07/31/2020 8:19:55 PM PDT · by Phillyred · 25 replies
    The death sentence for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who was behind the 2013 Boston Marathon Bombing, was overturned by a federal appeals court on Friday. The decision was made by a three-judge panel of the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals after they concluded that the judge who oversaw the case did not properly screen jurors for biases. The panel ordered a new trial to see whether the 27-year-old terrorist should be executed. “But make no mistake: Dzhokhar will spend his remaining days locked up in prison, with the only matter remaining being whether he will die by execution,” the judges stated. U.S. Circuit Judge O. Rogeriee Thompson wrote in...

    President Trump’s not fit for pinstripes, according to Mayor Bill de Blasio. The mayor slammed the New York Yankees for inviting “hatred to your pitcher’s mound” by allowing President Trump to throw out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium next month. “After CONDEMNING racism, the next step isn’t inviting it to your pitcher’s mound,” de Blasio tweeted Saturday. “To the execs that have aligned with hatred, you are on the wrong side of history and morality,” he added. The mayor meanwhile praised Yankees and Washington Nationals players who knelt in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement before the national...

    ER doctor and Boston state Rep. Jon Santiago said a second surge of coronavirus cases is coming, laying out a five-point strategy to stop it — including fines of up to $1,000 for people who refuse to quarantine and $100 for not wearing a mask. “We’re very much at risk of having a second surge here in Massachusetts and I think many medical experts — including myself — would agree that it’s not a matter of if, but when we will get that second surge. Now the question is how big it will that be,” Santiago told the Herald.

    The lone white candidate in the race for the Massachusetts 12th Suffolk House seat — a district made up of 70% Black residents — is dropping out in the wake of the national civil rights movement that was sparked by the police killing of George Floyd. Cam Charbonnier, a longtime aide for Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, cited this “inspiring” movement in his decision to leave the race as he wrote in a letter on Thursday, “I realize that this is not my moment.” “… It has become clear to me that at this time and in this district, I may...
