In March, a Boston Herald reporter said he’d been kicked out of a State Ethics Commission training session — not unreasonable; the meeting was for Massachusetts House members only. However, at least two people there refused to give their real names to the reporter as they left. Rep. Tim Toomey insisted he wasn’t a member (he is) but was “just passing through,” and Commission chairman Charles Swartwood III (a former federal judge magistrate) refused to give his name at all, telling the reporter, “I’m not saying because that’s a private matter.”
