It’s Massachusetts, so sit back and enjoy the hot blue on blue action.
The incoming president of the Massachusetts Senate is already having his leadership abilities called into question.
Openly gay Democrat Stanley Rosenberg, 65, of Amherst, Massachusetts, is set to take the top seat in the Massachusetts Senate next year after serving for 24 years, and it seems that this promotion has gone to someone’s head – his 27-year-old boyfriend.
Bryon Hefner, who began dating the Senator when he was just 21 after he interned for him, has reportedly taken to social media to brag about the influence he now has thanks to his other half.
And while Hefner may be content to celebrate and gloat, this behavior is not sitting well with both Rosenberg’s friends and coworkers.
The Boston Globe reports, ‘Mocking tweets attributed to Hefner have sparked anger, as have his reported boasts about the influence he would wield when his partner takes over next month.’
The tweets are said to have come from both Hefner’s own account (@BryonHefnerMA), which is private, and another account he created, General Hooker (@24Beacon), which has not been active since June of this year.
The General Hooker account is described as a , ‘A candid & non-partisan look @ the pacesetters, game changers, & backbenchers that stalk the halls of the hub of the universe.’
There, some politicians are heralded, while others are maligned, such as Massachusetts Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin, who was made to look like Star Wars villain Darth Sidious in one tweet, and current Senate President Therese Murray, photoshopped to appear as the Wicked Witch of the West.
This despite the fact that both, like Rosenberg, are Democrats.
Someone needs to stuff a sock in this punk’s mouth, although we suspect he’d enjoy that.
