Howie Carr has been riding the turtle like a champ lately. Check out today’s article in the Boston Herald, which he wrote and cited us after we published this blog showing Lt. Governor Karyn Polito hanging out with her good friend – former pot dealer turned State Trooper, Leigha Genduso.


Howie tracked down Polito to ask her about this. Now, if I was Karyn Polito this is very simple to handle – you admit that you are friends with this woman, you say you knew her from Shrewsbury, you assumed she was good police and had no reason to believe otherwise, and you say how astonished you are that she’s an admitted drug dealer.

Instead she did this:

Pay no attention to those photographs on the Internet of Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito yukking it up with disgraced MSP trooper Leigha Genduso. So what if Karyn posed with Leigha in what looks like the Seaport District, with the trooper practically spilling out of her strapless dress, as her recently “retired” ex-boyfriend, Lt. Col. Dan Risteen, looks on somewhat, well, hungrily.

“You’re leaping to the conclusion that I know this woman,” Polito was telling me Friday morning, when I cold-called her on her cell phone. “I take thousands of pictures, Howie.”

Yes, I said, but this isn’t just one picture. There are at least two. You can see them at turtleboysports.com. And by the way, Karyn, Leigha Genduso is from Shrewbury, just like you.

“I don’t know where she lives” Polito snapped. “I don’t know that she lives in Shrewsbury.”

Wait……what?? Leaping to the conclusion that you know this woman? You CLEARLY know this woman. Are you fucking kidding me?? She can’t possibly be serious. I’m legitimately baffled that she’d go this route. This is not a picture you take with some rando:

She’s also wearing a different outfit in this picture:

Which means they got together more than once. Which means she’s not a stranger. That picture is taken at the Seaport. It’s a ritzy little wine and cheese affair, that obviously the general public was not invited to. There’s like 20 people there. There’s no possible way Karyn Polito does not know Leigha Genduso. Everyone at that party was in the know.

It’s like what Peter did to Jesus. If Jesus sold pot and laundered $275,000 to rapey lawyers.

People like Karyn Polito are the reason that an admitted pot dealer could become a state trooper in the first place. Because this is who she went out of her way to befriend – people with power. Big time pot dealers, high ranking staties, politicians. Anyone who could get her nice things. Oh wait, I’m sorry – she did it all herself. We just need to get our FACKS straight!

The fact that the Lt. Governor is sitting here lying to us about this is disturbing. She’s treating the taxpayers like they’re stupid. Seriously, you don’t know her? You gotta be kidding me. That’s just straight up insulting our intelligence. So is this:

“I take many pictures every day,” Polito kept repeating. “Now, I understand there is an investigation –“

So, Karyn, you were the state rep from Shrewsbury in 2007 when your BFF Leigha ratted out her gangster boyfriend and decided that her rap sheet qualified her for a job with the State Police. Did you write a letter of recommendation for your constituent?

“I don’t know anything about that, I, I – no!”

You understand there is an investigation? Then why haven’t you commented? Neither you nor Charlie Baker has said a WORD about it. But you sure as hell had plenty to say when a cop shot someone that was trying to endanger the public was revealed to have said some unsavory things on the Internet years back.

Seriously, fuck Karyn Polito. I thought she was alright. I thought her and Charlie Baker were different. What a naive moron I was. They’re no different than Deval Patrick and Tim Murray. Timmy lied about a crash. Karyn Polito lied about her relationship with a pot dealing trooper.

The question is, when will Charlie Baker finally be asked about this? We don’t have access to him. How has no one from a major media outlet done this? I know Howie would but I’m pretty sure he’s burned that bridge with Baker by constantly calling him Tall Deval. There’s only one man left in town with access to Baker who can use his platform to press him on this:

030415- Boston, Ma. – Marty Walsh, Greg Hill, Charlie Baker at Greg’s 1727 Days event at the Liberty Hotel. (Courtesy the Greg Hill Foundation)The Hillman himself. He has Charlie on weekly. He’s a fan. And we’ve always been fans of his show. The question is, will be risk his friendly relationship to ask a question like this? It’s not really the Hillman’s style. His show is successful because it’s entertaining without going full controversial. I dunno, but someone’s gotta hold this assbag’s feet to the fire. Just sayin.

    I know both Karyn and Leigha. Both good chicks. Turtleboy, stop being such a bully and go after Drunken Diesel Dyke Diane Williamson

    If you wouldn’t throw it in Polito you’re a faggot. And Leigha sucked and fuked her way to the K9 unit.

    Charlie Baker, Marty Walsh and the Hillman, The new 3 stooges.

      So, you’re defending  a fuckbag rat?? You must be dirty too. Good people are outraged with this story and this bitch,that thinks she’s above the law.There’s something seriously wrong with you.

        Did she put away another scumbag with her testimony? Yes. It’s called atonement. People can atone and reform.

        The mob mentality around here is ridiculous

          I believe in atonement and reform. However, it does not apply to her. She is guilty. She saved her scumbag ass by throwing the person that didn’t rat anyone out for his benefit, under the bus. How can she be trusted when her history proves she’ll do ANYTHING to get what she wants.He did his time. I believe that’s atonement and reform.

    Why hasn’t Charlie or Karyn Polito commented on this skunk yet if they aren’t friendly with her? Any explanations?

    Polito is on the state, lying comes naturally to her. The state is dirty, it’s more like a subculture or alternative universe in many ways.

    The lt. gov CERTAINLY knows the lt. Col., the sugar trooper. Polito’ s feigned ignorance of her, if not her history, is just unbelievable.

  • That's a Stretch too Far

    I was at that event and have been at many others. Polito took a picture with EVERYONE there, and she does at all of the others, too.

    She assumes they are donors or potential donors, or in this case, the significant other of a donor. Its simple politics, not BFF

    • Just saying.
      March 5, 2018 at 11:49 am

      The problem with the people who claim they believe Polito when she says she doesn’t know her, are failing to acknowledge the fact that this scumbag (Leigha) is the ONLY trooper Charlie Baker hasn’t said a word about. How do you explain that? Why did he skip right over this POS? … Waiting.

      She likely “knew” the woman by name or by sight. You don’t attend political fundraisers without the politico at least knowing who you are — usually. If you’re a donor, then they definitely know your name and who you are, even if they do not know a great deal about you. I am fairly outspoken in my town politically, and I have dozens of people come up to me who I recognize by sight, but couldn’t tell you their name or what they do.

      Its very likely the Lt. Guv “knew” the woman by site and by name, but really didn’t “know” anything about her, other than cursory information you get from small talk around social gatherings. Shrewsbury has a population of almost 40,000 people, and the metropolitan worcester area over a half million, so unless someone has a smoking gun, like the Lt Guv had the woman as her child’s godmother, I’m willing to give the Lt. Guv the benefit of the doubt, even though I think she handled the matter poorly.

        That’s a crock of shit, you buy a ticket in advance and anyone can go, if you think they know everyone there you’re out of your mind.

    What are you guys turing into main stream media? We all know the globe leans left… election in the future and the globe would love for the dem candidate to win. So now if a have a couple of pictures taken with someone that makes me their good friend or friend? Karyn’s body language in the group photo says they’re not friends. I’ll assume you’re just so happy that the globe gave tutleboy a shoutout that you’re overlooking things like that… I’m no fan of Karyn but you guys are totally reaching on this one.

    I can’t believe some of you are so naive. Without a doubt these two new each other. I know if I was Polito and truly had nothing to do with that whore Leigha, I would have taken the time to clear the air with Howie. I would not want my name tagged with that racket dumpster. Think about it for a minute. How can this law breaking drug dealer become 1st a dispatcher 1 yr after she testified and then a k9 officer without the help of the higher ups? I know you want to believe in your government, so do I. The sad truth is we can’t. Thank you once again TB for having the balls to report this. A shame your colleagues don’t.8

      You appear to be an intelligent individual with cogent thought.

      I disagree with your assessment though. IF Genduso was friends with Polito, wouldn’t she have gotten an MSP *DISPATCHER* job on the first try, as opposed to the third? I think it took her 2 years to get the job!???

        Thank you Chrisin shrewsbury. I believe all her connections began once she testified. She applied back in 2006. The trial was in 2007. Once she was granted immunity and God knows what else, I think she started her networking. It seems she’s fooled a lot of people. I think Polito May have fallen into her web. There is no way feasible that this woman got her job without heads turning the other way.

    Suuuure cuz a washed up DJ with a show on the radio that only 15 year old boys and you listen to has any influence.
    Honestly, look at the filthy fat hill in the picture with his wrinkled stained shirt. What’s he doing, going for the Kevin Lynch look?

    I’m with Polito on this one. She’s a relatively accessible Lt.Gov who probably DOES take thousands of photos a year.

    What’s more likely is Genduso had access to high level MSP events Polito was at.

    It’s a stretch that Genduso (living in Reading?) was known to Polito in 2007 just because she previously lived in Shrewsbury. There’s nearly 500 kids a year graduating from SHS. Ratchety druggies are not high on Politos radar.

    Polito making it worse for herself, now she is pegged for life as a liar. What does one expect from a state hack anyways. Guaranteed more will come out on this. Always love their spins too.
