Masslive: Carlos Henriquez, a former state representative who was convicted of assaulting a woman in 2014, has been hired as a special assistant to Boston Mayor Marty Walsh. Henriquez was recently hired to work for Walsh as a special assistant for community engagement, officials said. The Boston Globe first reported Henriquez’s hiring. Henriquez will make $89,000 a year, according to the newspaper. Additionally, Henriquez has been working for several months as a consultant for the city, The Globe reported. Henriquez in 2014 was convicted of assaulting a former girlfriend. He was sentenced to six months in jail on two assault charges.
This is why people don’t trust democrats. Because they’re full of shit. This is the same Marty Walsh who virtue signaled about protecting women from violence, and pretended to give a shit about an alleged incident of unwelcome dry humping 36 years ago.
Ya wanna know why some people don’t take democrats seriously? This is why:
Judge Kavanaugh's appointment to the Supreme Court won't stop our fight for what is right. Dr. Blasey Ford will never be forgotten for the courage and bravery it took to come forward, and tell her story.
— Mayor Marty Walsh (@marty_walsh) October 6, 2018
No one believes any of you actually gave a shit about Christine Blasey-Ford. She was just useful for you for a couple of weeks.
Speaking of her, Carlos Henriquez had her back, and virtue signaled on Twitter about how Trump was reason she was drugged and raped.
He also virtue signals about ending sexism.
Even though he beat a woman from Arlington because she rejected his 3 AM booty call.
Meanwhile, Elizabeth Warren was leading the charge against Justice Kavanaugh last month, and here she is with the domestic abuser:
The story that Marty Walsh had hired this ex-con has made the Globe. She’s seen it. And yet she hasn’t said a PEEP about it. Because people like Pocahontas don’t actually give a shit about women, unless it’s politically expedient.
This was a very serious arrest too. Here’s what happened:
The police report states that Katherine Gonzalves, who stated that she and Henriquez had recently embarked on an “intimate relationship” within the past month, was picked up by Henriquez at her mother’s home at 2 a.m. Once they were in the car together, Henriquez allegedly spent the next two hours driving around while assaulting her and refusing to let her out of his car.
“Ms. Gonzalves stated that Mr. Henriquez had punched her with a closed fist repeatedly and strangled her while she was in his motor vehicle. Ms. Gonzalves stated that every time she attempted to jump out of the car the suspect (Henriquez) grabbed her wrists to prevent her from jumping out of the motor vehicle.”
Not only that, but Henriquez allegedly seized Gonzalves’s cell phone and removed the battery and SIM card, making Gonzalves a prisoner. The police report said that her mother called her after she got in the car, and Gonzalves asked to be taken home, whereupon Henriquez said, Gonzalves said that when the car slowed she jumped out. According to the police report, after she got into the car with Henriquez, her mother called her. Gonsalves asked to be taken home, prompting Henriquez to ask, “I came here all the way for what?”
He was not going to be denied poon-tang. We’ve all been there before. You think the booty call is legit, but it turns out she just wants to talk. It’s frustrating but part of life. Take the L, smoke some weed, and go home.
Not Carlos though. He didn’t waste all that gas money to go home with blue balls.
Not only is he now giving a job that pays twice what the average person makes to a convicted, woman-beating felon, he also CREATED the job in the first place.
“Mayor Walsh firmly believes in second chances and that’s exactly why he created the Office of Returning Citizens, to support people looking to get their life back on track,” Walsh spokeswoman Samantha Ormsby wrote in a statement.
Because you can do that when you work for the government. You can just “create” jobs out of thin air, that are completely unnecessary, and worry about who pays for it later. Sure, he could just hire a new police officer or a firefighter in order to do something that actually benefits community safety. But that would make too much sense. Instead he hires the domestic abuser because he “believes in second chances.” Except for Justice Kavanaugh, who shouldn’t be able to get a job, despite any convictions or even evidence.
Here’s what the job entails:
In the special assistant position, Henriquez will collaborate with city departments, including the Offices of Public Safety, Diversity and Resiliency, officials said. He will work at a community-level, the position tasking him with identifying and implementing strategies to support safety and address neighborhood trauma issues. After he was convicted, Henriquez became the first member of the House in nearly a century to be expelled from the chamber by his colleagues.
You can’t make this stuff up. He’s working to develop plans to support safety and help trauma victims. This is a man who went to jail for traumatizing a woman due to his lack of safety. It would be like hiring a drug dealer to be on the State Police K-9 unit. Oh wait, that happened too. But at least the MSP realized that was bad optics and ditched Leigha Genduso.
Let’s suppose this position really is necessary though. There are probably thousands of people out there who would jump at the opportunity to make $89,000 a year to do whatever bullshit he’s going to be doing with the “Office of Public Safety, Diversity and Resiliency.” Instead it goes to this politically connected ex-con so he can rehab his image and get back into politics. Because you know he’s got another run in him as a “reformed” woman beater.
But it’s all good in the hood because Carlos Henriquez worked at a youth center or something back in the day.
“Carlos Henriquez served his time and, after spending his career supporting youth, helping reduce violence, assisting those in recovery and providing trauma supports for families in need, he is eager to continue this work,” the statement continued.
He spent his career working to “reduce violence,” and in his own personal life he was beating up a woman who turned him down for a 3 AM booty call. Keep in mind, it’s pretty hard to go to jail in this state over domestic abuse. There has to be a shitload of evidence in order to get a conviction, and it has to be pretty bad for a Judge to take a State Representative and put him in prison.
But wait, it gets better. After being convicted and sentenced to jail, he refused to give his seat up and was brought to appear in front of the House Ethics Committee in handcuffs:
Henriquez appeared before the House Ethics Committee on February 4, 2014. In a secret meeting that lasted over six hours, the committee voted to recommend Henriquez’s expulsion, citing a violation of a House rule that prohibits activities that impede and conflict with one’s “independence of judgment.” This marked the third time since his conviction that Henriquez was called before the committee. Two days after the recommendation, the House voted 146-5 to expel Henriquez after over an hour of debate, during which Henriquez took the floor for six minutes to proclaim his innocence and refuse to resign.
Then, he asked for a 6 month absence, while the people of the 5th Suffolk district went without representation while he sat in jail:
The week before the meeting, Henriquez requested a six-month leave of absence, something not provided for by the House rules or the state constitution. Darnell Williams, president of the Urban League of Western Massachusetts, criticized the request as being disrespectful to Henriquez’s constituents.
He never apologized to the victim, and instead went to Twitter and pulled a dindu nuffin, and the jury was of course racist:
The day after the Ethics Committee recommended his expulsion, Henriquez issued a public statement through his Twitter account. In the statement, Henriquez continued to maintain his innocence, saying that being judged by “an all-white jury can raise doubts about fairness.”
Oh, and now he’s pushing for “criminal justice reform” which is code for, “Let career criminals like Jorge Zambrano stay out of jail because jail is racist”:
Henriquez cited his incarceration in calling for criminal justice reform, charging Massachusetts with “putting men and women in small concrete rooms offering them some programs but then sending them back to the same set of circumstances a lot worse.”
Which makes sense, since he’s now campaigning for Rachael Rollins, who wants to drug dealing a non-jailable offense.
The judge told him at sentencing that he was jailing him because he was not “accepting responsibility for his actions,” and that he should’ve just taken no for an answer when the Arlington woman rejected him. He also did this to her multiple times.
He was represented by Stephanie Soriano Mills, who is married to Cornell Mills, the son of convicted and expelled disgraced State Senator Diane Wilkerson, who went to jail for stuffing bribes in her tits during an undercover FBI operation. So he was defended by filth, on top of being filth himself.
Of course it doesn’t hurt when your mother Sandra B. Henriquez was appointed by President Obama in 2009 to be the Assistant Secretary for HUD’s Office of Public and Indian Housing. Before that she was the Administrator and Chief Executive Officer of the Boston Housing Authority (BHA). So he comes from a long line of government hacks who wouldn’t know how to go about getting a job if it weren’t flowing out of the government’s tits.
It’s amazing that this convicted felon was able to obtain a job making $89,000 a year fresh out of the can, and was able to accomplish all of this WITHOUT the magical ingredient known as “white privilege.”
According to him though it’s rich white men who have all the power and advantages.
LOL. Seriously, the next time someone mentioned white privilege, just send them a link to this blog. This asshole was born with a silver spoon in his mouth because of who his mother is. He got elected because he ran in the 5th Suffolk District, which is made up of Roxbury and Dorchester neighborhoods, and are overwhelmingly black. What are the odds that a privileged, well connected, educated black male would get elected in an overwhelmingly black neighborhood that didn’t put up a Republican opponent?
Then he somehow fucks that up because he thinks he’s entitled to pussy, and beats a woman because women have to submit to him. He shows no contrition at all, so the judge puts him in jail. He gets out jail, gets a hookup job, tries to run for City Council, loses, and gets rewarded with a new made up job paying nearly six figures by the Mayor himself.
It’s amazing how much he’s been able to achieve without white privilege.
