Former Massachusetts House Speaker Sues Secretary of State for Right to Lobby
Former House Speaker Salvatore DiMasi is suing Secretary of State Bill Galvin in state court for the right to register as a state lobbyist.
The State Lobbyist Division, which is overseen by the secretary of state, denied DiMasi’s application in March of 2019, citing his federal convictions for fraud and extortion.
DiMasi is currently registered as a lobbyist with the city of Boston.
