Description

" The Central Artery project in Boston, the nation's most expensive public works project, was used as a dumping ground for politician's friends and relatives, many of whom were virtual no-show employees. The administration hid the patronage system by 'assigning' the politically connected hires to the payrolls of private Big Dig contractors, who then billed the state for the cost of their salaries."
