The "Payola Pundit" Scandal Hits a Statehouse

In another case of pundits working for politicians, the Boston Herald fired a columnist for signing a state contract with Gov Mitt Romney's (R-MA) administration. Charles Chieppo wrote a weekly column for the Herald, but took on a $60 an hour contract to promote Gov Romney's environmental policies. He would have made no more than $10,000 under the contract.
