Former State Senate President and current State Senator Harriette Chandler is a menace behind the wheel. She can’t drive or park, and any time you see her driving around Worcester you’re best advised to drive in the other direction because you are in imminent danger.
She also has a tendency to illegally park in handicapped spots without a placard, using her state issued vehicle, which she also uses to conduct personal business. In March of 2018 we exposed her for not only parking in a handicapped spot at in a barren Bed, Bath, and Beyond (in Auburn) lot with plenty of available spots, but for parking on the double yellow lines which exist so that vans with passengers in wheelchair can have space to unload a ramp.
Six months later she was once again seen parked in a handicapped spot at a Jim McGovern fundraiser for the entrenched white male who was defending his seat of 22 years from a woman who was running against him.
What made this even more fucked up was the fact that she was a major proponent for the Act Relative To Handicapped Parking, a bill that became law after unanimously making it through the State House of Representatives and State Senate in 2017. It drastically increased punishments for illegally parking in handicapped spots.
One of the primary reasons the law was passed was because able bodied people were using placards that belonged to actual handicapped people. It increased penalties and everyone voted for it regardless of party because parking in a handicapped spot is a dick move.
Well, she did it again. Here’s a video sent to us from the Tatnuck Square shopping plaza in Worcester, once again showing Chandler illegally parking her state owned vehicle in a handicapped spot.
Just because Harriette Chandler worked on Franklin Roosevelt’s re-election campaign doesn’t give her the right to break the law. A law she voted for. Being a thousand years old doesn’t automatically make you handicapped.
Last year a reporter contacted Chandler’s office for comment and was told that she did indeed have a handicapped placard. Yet this is the third time this has happened and it’s never been on the car. So I decide this morning we would call and find out. I’m doing this live while blogging so I have no idea what’s about to happen.

“She does have a handicapped placard.”
No she doesn’t. This is the third time now we’ve seen her parking in a handicapped spot without a license. I have since emailed their communications director for further comment but they have not contacted us back. The law that she voted for requires the placard to be plain and visible in the front of the car.
Additionally, this car’s license plate is designated for the Senate President. Harriette Chandler is no longer the Senate President. She’s also not allowed to use her state issued vehicle for anything other than state business. Chandler was eating at Scruffy Murphy’s in Tatnuck Square.
“Sir I haven’t given you permission to record this.”
I literally told you four minutes earlier that I was recording you for journalistic purposes. You didn’t object. You also work for one of the most powerful people in the state, so go ahead and try to get me on that if you want, but you’ve been exposed for lying and trying to coverup the illegal actions of a hypocrite.
