The Massachusetts senator met with Boston Globe reporters for 45 minutes yesterday in hopes to put the issue to rest.

“Legally, I’m not compelled (to pay the taxes),’’ he said. “But politically, and in terms of the perception, that is something that came at us unexpectedly, before I had gotten to the point of doing what we needed to do.
