Charlie Baker calls for Roger Goodell to quit
Boston Globe - 09/23/2014
Although Baker and Coakley are in a tight race, Coakley is currently up by 18 points among women, according to recent Globe polls.
But William Mayer, a political scientist at Northeastern University, said focusing on the football commissioner’s job seems “a little off point.”
“Nobody in the NFL has been anxiously waiting to see what Martha Coakley has to say about this issue,” Mayer said. “Obviously, Martha Coakley has no authority over whether Goodell will resign, and, presumably, will have other things to occupy her time [should] she become governor. So yes, it’s a completely symbolic issue.”
