District 6 City Councilor Matt O'Malley

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 Screen grab of Tweet, since deleted by Arkansas State Rep. Nate Bell[/caption]

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.
