Had a great laugh this morning reading the Boston Herald. First there was this story:
WRKO radio host Howie Carr has lodged a trio of complaints against the station with the state Attorney General's office, seeking unpaid bonuses and a pay raise in the three years since his bosses thwarted his attempt to defect to rival WTKK.
The Herald received the complaints from the Attorney General's office under a Freedom of Information Act request. Carr declined comment this week.
Wait, is this the same Howie Carr that bashes state employees, elected (Democratic) officials and government overall as hacks and taxpayer ripoffs? Why yes it is. But when he has a problem with his employer, where does Howie Carr go? To a government agency and asks help from public employees.
And guess what - those public employees (always hacks in Howie's retread columns) did their jobs and protected Howie's rights (including getting him 2 backpay checks).
