Culture of Corruption, Part Forty-Eight

I’d say that when you refuse to answer questions like this, people get rather suspicious:

State Sen. Anthony D. Galluccio said he “panicked” when he bolted the scene of a car crash Sunday that left one person injured, but he refused yesterday to discuss where he was in the hours leading up to the 5:30 p.m. hit-and-run.

The Cambridge Democrat yesterday issued a statement expressing regret for fleeing, attributing his getaway attempt to his “prior driving record,” which includes two drunken driving convictions.

But in an interview with the Herald, Galluccio repeatedly refused to discuss his whereabouts earlier that day and whether he’d been drinking.

Oh, I’m sure he was out doing charity work, and he’s just too modest to mention it.
