Biden phones wrong man in trying to congratulate new mayor of Boston, of course

But here’s the catch: Biden did call Marty Walsh. Just not the Marty Walsh.

Instead, he called former Sen. Edward Kennedy campaign staffer Marty Walsh, beginning the conversation with “You son of a gun.”

MassLive scribe (and Mediaite contributor) Garrett Quinn reports that, according to staffers, the two spoke briefly before Biden called and left a voicemail on the real Walsh’s phone.

At least he initially called someone involved in politics and not any of the several dozen other Martin Walshes in the Boston metro area.
