Throwback Thursday – Political Edition II – Birds of a Feather

No Wonder George Anthes and Ed Kennedy get along so well! George in 1975 and Eddy in 1994 each used equipment they were not supposed to for Political Purposes.


Kennedy, Jr., Edward J., Docket No. 520

Docket No. 520

In the Matter of Edward J. Kennedy, Jr.

April 24, 1995

Disposition Agreement

On the evening of July 28, 1994, at Kennedy’s request,
two county employees[2] moved a Middlesex County copier from the
county’s office in Cambridge to the Election Office in Lowell.

5. At approximately 8:45 a.m. the next morning, at
Kennedy’s request, the same two county employees tried to use the
above-described copy machine to copy the City of Lowell voter
list. The copy machine would not work. (It was apparently out
of toner.) One of the county employees so informed Kennedy. At
approximately 11:00 a.m., Kennedy arrived at the Election Office.
They still could not get the machine to work. Kennedy instructed
the county employees to return the machine to Cambridge. They
did so.[3] Meanwhile, Kennedy paid $115 to have the voter list
copied at a commercial copier.

6. Section 23(b)(2) prohibits a county employee from
knowingly or with reason to know using or attempting to use his
official position to secure for himself an unwarranted privilege
of substantial value not properly available to similarly situated
