Bring Sal DiMasi home

It’s time to bring former House Speaker Salvatore DiMasi home, even if home means the Federal Bureau of Prisons medical center at Fort Devens.

DiMasi is currently being treated for Stage 4 throat and tongue cancer at a federal prison medical center in Butner, N.C. An already distressing situation for DiMasi’s family has turned heart wrenching, as his wife and children must travel 700 miles in order to visit him. Consequently, they are able to make the trip no more than once a month.
