mbattled House Speaker Salvatore F. DiMasi, dogged by a series of influence-peddling controversies involving close friends, is considering resigning his post as early as next week, according to two members of his leadership team with knowledge of his thinking.If this is true, why the hell did he run for Speaker a couple weeks ago? My initial reaction is not terribly charitable.
"He has not told anyone definitely what his plans are," said one of the members. "He is considering his options."
"No final decision has been made," said the other leadership team member. Both spoke on the condition of anonymity.
