Sal DiMasi

For the North End’s Sal DiMasi, the former Speaker of the House, things are going from bad to worse.

Last week, Judge Mark Wolf ruled that he must give himself up and report to prison on November 16. DiMasi will not be allowed to stay out on bail – a free man- while his appeal is argued.

For DiMasi, and for all of us watching this drama unfold since he was indicted more than 2 years ago, there is no end to the suffering he is going to know and that will affect his family as well.

We feel for Sal – he didn’t murder anyone. He broke the law.

Now he must pay the price.

That price is all about sadness because he was a great friend to this neighborhood and a native son – and everything that has happened is all about downfall and disappointment.
