The district city councilor for Jamaica Plain, Matt O’Malley, made waves this week by taking the unusual step of endorsing a state rep candidate — in Arkansas.
The story goes back to the Marathon bombings, when Arkansas State Rep. Nate Bell insulted everyone who abided by the “shelter in place” order that was in effect while police chased, fought and cornered suspects.
The Tweet itself was swiftly deleted, but Bell sorta-kinda apologized for it on his Facebook page.
What does this have to do with JP, you ask? Our district councilor is backing Bell’s opponent, Chase Busch.
