Michael Dukakis takes tumble for a cleaner Boston
The Boston Globe - 12/16/2016
Michael Dukakis sometimes got roughed up politically as governor of Masschusetts and Democratic presidential nominee in 1988. Last week he got roughed up literally — all in the name of a cleaner Boston.
A passerby spotted Dukakis with blood on his face the morning of Dec. 8, but Dukakis said it was just a mishap. While picking up trash on the Emerald Necklace, he explained, “I reached down for a piece of litter and somehow tripped, falling flat on my face on the sidewalk.”
