Connecticut ex-Governor Rowland has let me down hard. I supported him through his first brush with the law years ago, which resulted in him doing jail time. I did so because I then believed he didn’t do anything that bad that others at his level were also getting away with, and because his take down was politically motivated.
I supported him post-incarceration as he slowly came back into prominence in the private sector, seemingly doing good things. But this morning’s Waterbury Republican headline reads “ROWLAND INDICTED”, in very big letters, and the article reports 7 counts of breaking election laws in two separate elections since his release from prison. Like the last time, dollars were involved.
Fool me once…
