Rember John Buonomo? he resigned in September

This guy is the poster child for eliminating the system that got him his job. And to make matters worse, voters in Framingham actually voted for him after he was indicted last year.... I wonder how many other elected officials take money out of their war chests for personal use.

John Buonomo, the former Middlesex Register of Probate who resigned last year after allegedly stealing office funds, faces new charges of funneling more than $100,000 of his campaign finance money for personal use.
John Buonomo resigned after State Police footage led to his arrest in the theft of thousands of dollars from copy machines.
Buonomo, 57, a Somerville politician who has been living in Newton, was indicted by a Middlesex Superior Court jury yesterday on charges of larceny, personal use of campaign funds, and willfully misleading investigators. He is slated to be arraigned at a later date.
The owner of a Somerville printing business, Marc Piro, was also indicted for allegedly scheming with Buonomo to set up fake transactions that allowed Buonomo to withdraw funds from his campaign account. Piro, 46, of Wilmington and the owner of Guy T. Piro & Sons, , is slated to be arraigned at a later date.

I went to your Grade the State House blog and commented on this Piro guy already. Nice to see he is going to be in hot water also.

How much you want to bet that every single person in Framingham who voted for this guy also voted for Richardson? Bright, bright voters!
