Someone finally puts heat on Blumenthal

Despite its happy ending for BC, the Big East defection/ACC expansion was a public relations mess. Problems arose when the politicians got involved. One of the biggest grandstanders was Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal. He turned Miami, Syracuse, and BC’s reasonable decision into his own personal crusade and claimed that the departing schools had duped the Connecticut tax payers and UConn. Well, we know how it ended.

Now Blumenthal is up for reelection and one of his challengers is wisely reminding voters how much time and money this gasbag wasted. I wished I lived in CT just so I could vote against Blumenthal.
