This kkklown steven lynch is a democrat in name only - and doesnt stand a chance. He is more conservative than many Republicans.. I have a long memory and remeber this bigoted southie pos who defended thugs doing hate crimes against minorities who dared venture into south boston.. He was a 2 bit lawyer back then and proudly proclaimed he would represent and defend these thugs for Free.. He had close ties with jimmy kelly , louise day hicks and those klxing miscreants. He gives Boston a bad name and specifically democrats.
