"Disappointing Day"

Maureen Feeney's brief release on the Dianne Wilkerson bombshell calls this a "disappointing day," which seems a bit understated; for those who missed it, here's my report from earlier today on the accusations. I don't have much to add right now, except that she has been released on $50,000 unsecured bond with various conditions, including a prohibition on destroying any documents related to her finances, personal or campaign. Agents will be wanting to go through all of those, thank you very much.

The US Attorney's office says that this is "an ongoing investigation," but will not say whether others are potentially implicated -- except to say that Mayor Menino was not a target of this investigation. Michael Sullivan has been quoted elsewhere saying that no other elected officials are suspected of taking part in bribery. That still leaves other folks in and around Wilkerson and/or city government.

Much more on this later,you can be sure.
