In the latest turn of events regarding the story of Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, this happened today.
The head of the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles has resigned amid the fallout from a deadly crash in Randolph, New Hampshire, that killed seven people associated with a Marine motorcycle club. Massachusetts Department of Transportation Secretary and CEO Stephanie Pollack said she has accepted the resignation of Registrar Erin Deveney. The truck driver involved in the crash, 23-year-old Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, of West Springfield, has pleaded not guilty to seven counts of negligent homicide.
I have no idea who this blowfish is, and I certainly had no intention of taking her down. But I humbly accept her resignation because she oversees the most Godless organization that has ever existed – the Massachusetts RMV. Turtleboy’s wrath will be nothing compared to God’s for what she has done with those places.
5 Investigates reported that Zhukovskyy has a history of driving under the influence charges and license suspensions. He was involved in a rollover crash in Texas just weeks ago, according to 5 Investigates.
I’m sorry, but 5 investigates? Apparently what they mean by “investigates,” is “read TB Daily News, write about what you read, and pretend that you don’t consider TB Daily News a real news source.”
This was even worse.
“Just one station.”
It’s like they have no self-awareness whatsoever. They seem to believe that they were the only ones who read the TB Daily News blogs, and by writing “Just one station” would somehow fool the hundreds of thousands of people who read our blogs in the last 48 hours. We were the only media outlet reporting his February rollover crash in Texas, but now they all are.
This whole story sounds too unreal to believe.
According to Pollack, the Massachusetts RMV did not act on information provided by the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles regarding a May 11 incident that should have triggered the termination of Zhukovskyy’s commercial driver’s license. Former MassDOT Chief Operating Officer Jamey Tesler will take over as acting registrar of the RMV. Pollack said Tesler will lead an in-depth review of the Registry’s state-to-state data sharing processes to ensure the RMV acts as quickly as possible on any information shared by other states.
“The loss of life in any motor vehicle crash is a terrible tragedy and the massive toll this crash is taking on the families of the seven individuals who lost their lives, many of whom served this country, is impossible to comprehend,” Pollack said in a statement. “The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles has a responsibility to enforce the laws governing safe operation of vehicles and carries out its mission to the best of its abilities.”
Zhukovskyy received a Massachusetts personal driving license on April 25, 2013, and received a Class A license, or CDL, on Aug. 3, 2018.
Zhukovvsyy’s driving history did not have the number and type of violations that would have disqualified him under state and federal law from obtaining a Massachusetts CDL in August 2018. On May 11, 2019, Zhukovskyy received violations for an alleged OUI incident and refusing a chemical test in East Windsor, Connecticut.
The RMV doesn’t share information on driving records with other states? Yea, I don’t believe that. So anyone who moves here from another state gets a clean slate for doing so? Nah, pass. This is Massachusetts, the land of the free and the home of the stacks of paperwork and forms.
This is pure speculation, but considering that Massachusetts goes out of its way to make it easier for illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses, it sounds like Zhukovskyy could’ve easily been given a pass considering his criminal record and immigrant background could make him a target for deportation. Everything about this story seems to revolve around a government agency going out of its way NOT to do a background search on a criminal who happens to be from another country, in a state known for government agencies involving themselves in everything.
This is Massachusetts. We invented big government and red tape. Sorry, I’m just having a tough time imaging a government agency not making someone’s life more difficult, unless he or she is the kind of person that Maura Healey thinks should be protected from potential deportation.
Although it will always be frustrating when a media outlet blatantly rips off our work, it’s satisfying nonetheless because the message is getting out. Over 250,000 people read our blogs on the story this week. Consequently a government hack who failed to do her job was held accountable and was forced to resign in disgrace. And that, in and of itself, is a victory.
