Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance calls on Brian Joyce to resign his Senate seat in light of ongoing scandal

Today, Executive Director of MassFiscal Paul Craney called on Senator Brian Joyce of Milton to resign his Senate seat in light of a growing scandal surrounding his professional conduct.

“Brian Joyce clearly lacks a moral compass. He has used his Senate office for personal financial gain. No amount of dry cleaning will remove this stain, ” Craney said. “This kind of corruption is intolerable.”

Today’s Boston Globe highlights Joyce’s pressured abuse of a local dry cleaner. Earlier stories have detailed his use of campaign funds for personal expenses, including family parties and cars, and business ties to companies like Energi and Dunkin’ Donuts that cross the sacred divide between his senate office and his personal financial interests, ties that he failed to report on annual ethics filings.

“Accountability and transparency are crucial to good government, and improving Massachusetts’ performance in these areas is central to MassFiscal’s mission,” Craney said. “Joyce’s actions show a blatant disregard for those ideals. He’s the face of old-time strong-arm tactics and back room bargaining. It’s time for him to go.”
