Sound savior snagged as sot

 The Alliance's Ernie "Flack of last resort" Corrigan busted in Brewster for OUI
Is anti-wind farm spokesman the biggest "hazard to navigation" of all?

The item below is from the Boston Herald Inside Track column this week;

Herald's Inmside Track
WE HEAR:  
 
What? Me worry? That Ernie Corrigan, frontman for the Alliance to Protect Nantucket Sound, the group attempting to stop an offshore wind farm on Cape Cod because, they say, the windmills would be a hazard to navigation, was himself a hazard to navigation on the Cape last week. Allegedly. Corrigan was arraigned in Orleans District Court on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol. Corrigan was arrested Saturday in Brewster and will be back in court for a pre-trial conference Oct. 3...

And why, you ask, is that news? 

There are two very good reasons;

  1. Why didn't our local daily tell us? Could it be that they are running out of reputable people to use as mouthpieces in their five year Anti-Cape Wing jihad?
       After all, they've dropped Isaac Rosen for Susan Nickerson for "Dirty Doug" Yearley for Charlie Free Willy" Vinick to end up this week lionizing a little-known Hyannis mortgage broker, and they really need someone with a shred of repute.
       Heck, Ernie once flacked for Cardinal "Pedophile Priest" Law and the Nipmuc Indians when they tried for Federal recognition and gambling, so the newspaper  really might need to wheel him out again.
  2. It is extremely unusual for a major, metro daily newspaper like the Herald to focus on a little-know PR Flack when he gets busted for boozing. 
       This indicates to me that old Ernie has made some serious enemies in that newsroom and others. We has promoted lies and deceits about Cape Wind, and that probably means he's done at least that bad or worse to some big players in Bean Town.
What goes around, comes around, Ernie. You better run for cover.
