MassDems Statement on Governor Baker Standing with Senate Candidate Chip Harrington in Spite of Illegal Alcohol Sale to Minor

BOSTON – As Masslive reported today, Republican state Senate Candidate Chip Harrington’s package store business was recently caught in an undercover sting operation illegally selling alcohol to a minor. Despite having been notified on or about September 12th by the state Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission that his company has been charged with criminal misconduct, Harrington and his campaign chose to keep this very serious matter secret from voters. The following is a statement from Massachusetts Democratic Party Jay Cincotti:
“Given Chip Harrington’s failure to come clean about an undercover sting operation showing his business illegally sold alcohol to a minor, Charlie Baker should call on Harrington to publically release the official incident report, denounce Harrington’s candidacy and condemn the profit of the sale of alcohol to a minor and Harrington’s ensuing cover up.”
