UPDATE: Blame John Connolly.
Adam Rosi-Kessel reports getting several mailings attacking city-council candidates that don't say who put them out:
... My guess is these mailings are all meant to support John Connolly, a West Roxbury resident, attorney, and ostensibly good guy. I was feeling pretty happy about the possibility of Connolly replacing Murphy on the Council (I have to admit some unfair prejudice in that the only house in our neighborhood I've ever seen prominently posting a sign in support of Bush also features a Murphy billboard). But these questionable campaign tactics are giving me pause. Does anyone know anything more about this? ...
Edward Forry, publisher of the Dorchester Reporter, says the paper has absolutely nothing to do with a flier now being distributed in various neighborhoods (alas, he doesn't detail the contents for those of us in remoter parts of the city).
