How foolish is state Sen. Steven Baddour? Baddour is one of four Democratic legislators who’ve demanded that Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey, a Republican, stop showing a commercial that makes it look like they’ve endorsed her campaign for governor.

“It’s been twisted to appear as though I am endorsing Kerry Healey, when in fact nothing could be further from the truth,” Baddour was quoted as saying in the Boston Globe yesterday.

Today the Boston Herald’s Kimberly Atkins, citing unnamed sources, reports that Baddour “secretly pledged to help Healey’s GOP campaign for governor after the Democratic primary.” Atkins follows up on her blog:

When I arrived at my office this morning, I had no less than three voicemail massages from people claiming to have heard Sen. Steven Baddour say at various times over the summer and fall that he planned to back Kerry Healey for governor if Deval Patrick won the Democratic primary.

Baddour has guaranteed himself the worst of both worlds: outcast status no matter who wins. Good going, Senator.
