Off To The Leper Colony, Buba

by at 1:48 pm.

From the Blog of the Blog of Record:

Like an anvil, the weight of the internet crashed down upon two-time unsuccessful state senate candidate Jim Buba Wednesday.
Buba commented on a photograph of the fire at 886 Central Street that claimed the life of a 79-year-old Lowell man who was popular in his Back Central neighborhood.

Popular sport in a down economy. Can’t make the payments and can’t make a flood, so…” read the Facebook post on The Sun’s Facebook page.

For the record, the post was made more than 12 hours after Fire Chief Edward Pitta said the cause of the tragic fire appeared to be accidental, and after The Sun reported Pitta’s comments on the fire that claimed the life of Juventino Leite.

In the following 12 hours, nearly half of the more than 40 comments on the photo condemned Buba, most in language that can’t be repeated. Some comments even wished Buba harm.

    Hopefully, this destroys any chance of him running for any office.

  5. Mr. Lynne Says:

    Was he the only GOPer running for 1st Middlesex or was there a primary out of which he emerged?
