Word in from the Walsh campaign: Hizzona has not endorsed Stephen Passacantilli in the District 1 (East Boston, Charlestown, North End) council race, no matter how many cards saying he has are floating around East Boston. The Walsh campaign forwarded this interchange at WGBH from last night:
He was asked last night..."District one...did you announce your support for any candidate?" The mayor replied,"No, I haven't."
At least whoever printed the cards up didn't stick Walsh's signature on it.
Speaking of WGBH, looks like, as he did during the Olympics debacle, Walsh has a problem with some of his supporters throwing their obnoxious weight around.

The Globe reports Jackson didn't knock Walsh into the ropes at the debate. Also see the Herald account.
If you missed the debate, WGBH has a video of it.
The Herald joined the Globe in endorsing Walsh, says he's had "a darned good four years" (but needs to do more on schools), accuses Jackson of "flailing about for issues" and picking bad ones, such as dismantling the BRA and returning to an elected school committee.
During the debate, Jackson called for dashcams in BPD cruisers, a technology he said was so old and proven it was featured 20 years ago on the now-canceled Cops series. Only it turns out Cops is still around:
In District 7 (Roxbury), Rufus Faulk has been endorsed by five of the twelve people he ran against (one of the remaining seven being opponent Kim Janey).
