Gov. Patrick Botches Surprise Trip To Paris For Wife

BOSTON (CBS) – Gov. Deval Patrick had a big surprise planned and he blew it.

He’s taking his wife Diane to Paris Thursday night for her 60th birthday celebration.

It was supposed to be a secret.

But, the governor accidentally included her on an email with details about the trip attached.

At least one state trooper will be traveling the governor and his wife during the trip.

The Patricks will return on Monday.

WBZ-TV’s Karen Anderson contributed to this report.

    How many ‘Staties’, along with their wives, are going with them for security?

    Of coarse in France, their definmition of protection is using ‘deordant’…..

    Could be a cheap trip, couple cans of ‘right guard’ should cover it!
