Bulger born William Bulger served in the military during the Korean War but was never posted to Korea. He was formerly an influential leader of the Democratic Party in Massachusetts.
In a long political career, William rose to become President of the Massachusetts Senate. After his retirement he was appointed President of the University of Massachusetts system.
In December , William Bulger appeared before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and refused to testify, citing his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.
I do not know where he has been over the past eight years. I have not aided James Bulger in any way while he has been a fugitive.
Few people probably did. By definition, his was a secretive life. His actions were covert, hidden even from—or perhaps hidden especially from those who loved and cared about him.
The subject that interests so many, the life and the activities of my brother James is painful and difficult for me. John "Jackie" Bulger, a retired Massachusetts court clerk magistrate , was convicted in April of committing perjury in front of two grand juries regarding sworn statements he gave concerning contacts with his fugitive brother.
Bulger fathered one child, Douglas Glenn Cyr — , during a year relationship with Lindsey Cyr, a waitress and former fashion model living in North Weymouth, Massachusetts.
And we all made him vulnerable. An absolute nightmare, and it was very difficult for Jimmy because, no matter what, there was nothing that could save this.
Money didn't matter, his power didn't matter. I remember that we were walking out of the hospital the night that he died, and he was holding my hand.
And Jimmy said, "I'm never going to hurt like this again. After Bulger's arrest, Cyr announced her support of him,  stating:. If he wanted to see me, I'd be happy to.
If he needs help getting attorneys and what have you, I'd be happy to help him. Part of me does [still love him].
I still care for him. I would always help him. I certainly always stand by him. He is the father of my child. He is 12 years of my life.
I want to see him well protected. And I'm not particularly sympathetic to some of the people involved, some of the victims' families. However, he was repeatedly unfaithful to her with a host of other women, and was often absent while overseeing the running of his organization.
In a interview Stanley stated that she was planning to publish her memoirs;  however, she died of lung cancer in at the age of Most of the time, The Boston Globe wasn't as inaccurate as the Herald.
They just knocked the people from Southie during busing. They also liked to describe me as, 'Whitey's surrogate son', another example of the media putting labels on people they wrote about.
Jimmy and I were friends, not like father and son. Even though he was the boss, he always treated me equally, like an associate, not a son. The reporter who seemed to do the most research and put real effort into getting the true story without having been there was Shelley Murphy, who had been at the Herald for ten years when she went to work for the Globe in But Jimmy and I usually ended up laughing at most of the news stories, as time and time again the media had it wrong, over and over again holding to their pledge to never let the truth get in the way of a good story.
According to Weeks' memoirs, in Boston Herald reporter Paul Corsetti began researching an article about Louis Litif 's murder and Bulger's suspected involvement.
After reporting the story for several days, Corsetti was approached by a man who said, "I'm Jim Bulger and if you continue to write shit about me, I'm going to blow your fucking head off.
He was issued a pistol permit within 24 hours. The cop who gave him the permit told him, 'I'm glad my last name is not Corsetti.
In his memoirs, Kevin Weeks related his participation in an attempt to assassinate reporter Howie Carr at his house in suburban Acton.
Weeks stated that Carr was targeted because he was "writing nasty stories about people, he was an oxygen thief who didn't deserve to breathe.
Weeks stated that, although several plans were considered, all were abandoned because there was too much risk of injuring Carr's wife and children.
The plans climaxed with Weeks' own attempt to shoot Carr with a sniper rifle as he came out of his house. However, when Carr came out the front door holding the hand of his young daughter, Weeks could not bring himself to shoot.
He wanted another opportunity to "finish the job," but Bulger advised him to forget about Howie Carr. But in the long run, Jimmy and I got sidetracked and the maggot lived.
Still, I wish I'd killed him. No question about it. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. American gangster and crime boss. Further information: Winter Hill Gang.
