Perhaps some justice for DiMasi and friends

Three Beacon Hill power brokers and former House Speaker Salvatore F. DiMasi have been indicted on corruption charges today in connection with a State House scandal involving software contracts, according to court records.

DiMasi, his former accountant Richard Vitale, lobbyist Richard McDonough and software broker Joseph Lally have been indicted, records state. The U.S. Attorney’s Office has called a press conference for 3:30 today to announce “a public corruption matter.”

Also DiMasi's top attorney Lou Rizoli is resigning at the end of this month. This could also have a bearing on Cahill's connections to the lobbyists for the software company, in that Cahill has denied any ethical wrong doing in awarding the contract..

This story has legs.
