DiMasi appeal challenges judge’s instructions – Lantigua marriage mystery – District and challengers make life hard for Torrisi – Paul Ryan fallout

ACTUALLY INTERESTING RACES: The Eagle Tribune has primers on two interesting local races around the Merrimack valley: Rep. David Torrisi’s race against a young Democratic challenger in a changed district and what it’s like to campaign for the Governor’s Council, even when some candidates openly want to do away with it.

SPOUSAL PRIVILEGE: Haven’t heard from Lawrence Mayor Willie Lantigua recently? That might be because he was busy getting married to his long-time “paramour” who happens to also be a key witness in his on-going grand jury investigation.

MORE COURT: Sal DiMasi’s appeal documentation says the judge in his corruption trial gave faulty jury instructions and also challenges the definition of bribery for a “part-time citizen legislator” such as the Speaker of the House is commonly known.
