Joe Kennedy III has sunk to a new low in his campaign to unset incumbent U.S. Sen. Edward Markey.
The 4th District congressman accused Markey in an email blast of failing to recognize the needs of Massachusetts residents in Dana, Enfield and Prescott, among other towns.
Only one problem: Dana, Enfield, and Prescott have been at the bottom of the Quabbin Reservoir for decades. (Scott comment: 1938 to be exact.)
The mighty Quabbin, the source of drinking water for Greater Boston, was completed in 1946, according to the state. Four towns were sunk to make room for the massive body of fresh water — Dana, in Worcester County, and the Hampshire County towns of Enfield, Greenwich, and Prescott. <more>
