Live Boston has the scoop: When Bill Forry of the Dorchester Reporter tweeted last night that Kevin Hayden would soon address his supporters as the new permanent DA, somebody at Transit Police responded that Hayden didn't win so the election so much as the Globe, due to its last-minute stories on Ricardo Arroyo.
In a tweet, the official Transit Police account called Hayden "totally inept" and somebody who "lacks the integrity to serve as DA."
Transit Police brass were frustrated, and yes, pissed, when they learned, also from the Globe, that Hayden seemed to be sitting on a potential prosecution of a Transit cop they wanted prosecuted on charges he pulled a gun during an off-duty road-rage incident.
Live Boston reports that TPD Supt. Richard Sullivan, second in command to Chief Kenneth Green, is the only person in TPD with access to the Twitter account. The tweet has since been pulled down.
