He claimed that “it’s just free speech.” Well, that form of free speech, which really means the expenditure of vast sums of undisclosed money, has already corrupted the political process in which Gomez wishes to take part. His airy embrace of what Markey rightly calls “one of the worst decisions in the history of the United States” disqualifies Gomez from the very office he seeks.
