Somebody dropped some paperwork on the Globe about two investigations into alleged sexual attacks by City Councilor and DA candidate Ricardo Arroyo when he was a student at the O'Bryant School.
Herald reporter Sean Philip Cotter reported from a press conference today that Arroyo denied attacking anybody, blasted whoever committed an "abuse of power" by sending the docs to the Globe, said he absolutely no intention of dropping out of the DA's race, would not answer a question about why he said he never even knew about two separate BPD investigations even though the Globe reported his family retained a lawyer for him. A lawyer for one of the two women read a statement from her denying any allegations against Arroyo.
Globe reporter Danny McDonald notes City Councilors Kendra Lara (Jamaica Plain, West Roxbury, Mission Hill) and Tania Fernandes Anderson (Roxbury) attended to show their continued support for Arroyo. He adds that former US Rep. Joe Kennedy III, who does not live in Suffolk County, has rescinded his endorsement.
