A virtual one-party state lets corruption go on

YOUR EDITORIAL “Tim Murray’s patronage politics show deeper problem in Mass.’’ (Feb. 12) should have been headlined “As you sow, so shall you reap.’’ I was disappointed, but not surprised, that your editorial board did not, or chose not to, connect the patronage, the turning of blind eyes, and governmental corruption in general, to the fact that Massachusetts is basically a one-party state.

Unless and until voters here wake up to that fact, the Globe will be destined to write editorials with the same theme. Only the names will change.
