DiMasi says late medical care let cancer spread – 3 TV debates set for Brown and Warren – Solyndra-slamming Congressman has sights set on Cape Wind – Other tribes question Wampanoag ties to Taunton

Former Speaker of the House Sal DiMasi says he was denied medical care while serving a federal prison sentence and the lack of care lead to his cancer spreading.

The Congressman who lead the investigation in the Solyndra saga is now taking on Cape Wind. Rep. Cliff Stearns says the White House put political pressure on the FAA to approve the project.

Who says the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe may not have a historical connection to Taunton, where they want to build their casino? The Pokanoket, Pocasset and Massachuset tribes, that’s who. And don’t forget about that potential Western Mass. casino license: it’s brother vs. brother and north vs. south for Springfield and the family behind the Peter Pan bus company.

So it looks like there will be at least three televised debates for Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren: one on WBZ with Jon Keller, one in Springfield and now a third sponsored by a Boston media consortium.
