Beacon Hill in 'State of Shock' Over Sal DiMasi Testimony

Beacon Hill in ‘State of Shock’ Over Sal DiMasi Testimony. So now it’s not just U.S. Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz who’s making Beacon Hill very nervous. Former speaker Sal DiMasi, who yesterday afternoon was mysteriously listed as “in transit” from his federal prison in Lexington, Ky., will return to Massachusetts to testify before a federal grand jury, presumably over Ortiz’s investigation into the state Probation Department. “People are in a state of shock that he’s coming back to testify,’’ a Beacon Hill lobbyist told the Globe. “There are a lot of nervous people around.’’  []
