Republicans Lambaste Reilly

Boston Herald:

Republicans continued to lambaste Attorney General Tom Reilly yesterday for
supporting tuition breaks for illegal immigrants, accusing him of misleading the
public on the bill and even possible ethics violations.

Sen. Scott Brown (R-Wrentham) said Reilly’s lobbying for the controversial bill may violate ethics rules because the AG handed out a letter to lawmakers supporting the measure written on his office’s letterhead. Ethics rules bar officials from using state resources for political purposes.

Reilly spokesman Corey Welford said of Reilley is "a public official commenting on a public bill."

This is not an issue the Democrats can win on next year.
