Brown takes money from Yankee prez – OCPF clears Adams’ ParentPAC – Yard signs can get you in trouble – So can email

HARDBALL: The Herald fronts Joe Battenfeld’s column on Sen. Scott Brown’s voting record and policy beliefs – Just kidding it’s about what’s really going to matter to voters in this race: sports fandom and fund raising.

STAKES IN THE GROUND: Westfield mayor Daniel Knapick learns that though yard signs can’t vote, they can get you sued by the ACLU.

IMPORTANT OPPORTUNITY: I’d like to invite everyone to my next professional training seminar: “How to sign up for Gmail and not get caught trying to dig up dirt on your primary opponent using your state account.” Step 1: leave the former Lt. governor of Ohio alone. The seminar will cost $4,000 and please don’t send an on-the-clock staffer this time.

WHY HAD NO ONE THOUGHT OF THIS BEFORE?: OCPF finds that the Marlborough GOP committee did nothing wrong during the whole Rep. Adams parental SuperPAC thing, opening the door for everyone’s parents to start throwing money around.
