postheadericon AP News: Government employees punch in and out to politick

By GLEN JOHNSON, AP Political Writer

BOSTON (AP) – Government employees in Massachusetts are leaving their tax-paid jobs on a daily and sometimes hourly basis to campaign for their bosses this fall.

In the past week, top aides to state treasurer and independent gubernatorial candidate Timothy Cahill have been spotted at mid-afternoon campaign events. The same has been true the past month for aides to U.S. Rep. Barney Frank, Gov. Deval Patrick and Lt. Gov. Timothy Murray.
