Bill O’Brien held a press unavailability today. He refused to admit Annmarie Timmons and Matt Spolar from the Concord Monitor. Actually, he had Shannon Bettencourt block the door.
The Concord Patch has video and the story.
There is speculation that he is upset over the Monitor cartoon of him with the Hitleresque mustache over l’affair Vaillancourt.
When asked for a comment he did not respond, but instead just waved dismissively.
Disappointingly, the Patch says the press unavail “featured O’Brien, both Democrats and Republican state legislators”. Although it is hard for me to criticize elected Democratic representatives, if that is accurate, I will be very critical. However, I will hold off for more facts. I will say this: any state rep who saw O’Brien bar some members of the press should have walked out in protest.
