Not waiting for election, Senate Candidate Dooley, electtomdooley.com met Carlos and politely told him to resign, attorney would not extract him from legal situation with so many charges, and that Legislature should impeach&remove per Article VIII even if he's innocent. http://www.boston.com/metrodesk/2012/08/09/rep-carlos-henriquez-rejects-call-resign/aSTG7wmw7XGu7sQK3ZOn9O/story.html
