Alrighty then, just got a press release from Wynn, the people who want to build a casino in Everett, about this week's vote in Revere in favor of a Suffolk Downs casino. It reads in part:

WYNN SETS WORLD RECORD FOR FIVE-STAR AWARDS
Revere voters opt for mediocre three-star racino

“A casino next to a decrepit race track is no match for Wynn Resorts’ proven track record of superior quality, service and luxury that is beyond compare,” Paul Dobbins of Everett said on behalf of Everett United/A Wynn For All. “Wynn is an international luxury brand with a track record to prove it.”

You know when you are heading for victory when anonymous posters attack and ridicule you. It always out of fear, hatred, and jealousy that these "stalker trolls" attack you when you are on the brink of success and triumph.

My good friend Moe Love obviously does not like the fact that yes I am a former Republican. However, fortunately I am in good company.

Hevis Lleshi, who worked with Annie Dookhan at that now closed crime lab in JP, faces arraignment today on charges she rear ended another vehicle while drunk Wednesday evening.

Lleshi, 32, of Quincy, was arrested at North Shore Road and Oak Island Street in Revere, the DA's office says, adding police found her "visibly intoxicated" and blew a .24 on a breath test. The pregnant driver of the other car was hospitalized with non-fatal injuries.

Dookhan trained Lleshi as a chemist in 2011, the Globe reported last year.
