First he was accused of running for office just to boost his professional profile. Now, Democrats say Barry Hinckley may have moved to Rhode Island just to run for office.
“…now Democrats are questioning whether Hinckley simply chose Rhode Island because it is relatively affordable to run for a Senate race in the Ocean State,” reports Dan McGowan of GoLocalProv.
The accusation stems from the fact that Hinckley was lived in and was registered to vote in Florida as recently as 2010 and launched his campaign to represent RI in the Senate in early 2011 … given that he also “spent much of his adult life in Boston” he sure hasn’t spent a lot of time with the people he now wants to represent.
On Hinckley’s website, he refers to himself as a “lifelong New Englander.” Either that isn’t entirely true or welcome to New England, Florida!
