Fault varies for latest government shutdown | Boston Herald Fault varies for latest government shutdown
People who were out and about in Boston on the first day of the government shutdown said they weren’t concerned about the impact the impasse would have on their day-to-day lives and disagreed on who was ultimately to blame for the failure among legislators to reach a compromise.• “Everything else is up and running pretty much, so it doesn’t have much of an impact in our lives. I don’t know who (to blame). Both sides ... are to blame because they are playing politics as usual. Probably the GOP (will be blamed).” — Dan Macy, 30, North End • “It

Federal prosecutors said yesterday that they will retry U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), two months after a jury in Newark deadlocked on bribery charges against him.The Justice Department said it will also retry Menendez’s co-defendant, Florida eye doctor Salomon Melgen.After an 11-week trial, a judge in November declared a mistrial when jurors said they could not reach a unanimous verdict. Jurors later said the vote was 10-2 to acquit the defendants on most of the 18 counts. Given that split, prosecutors will likely have to reshape parts of their case to win a conviction in a new trial.
