There’s a report from John Lender on Courant.com‘s home page this afternoon. It concerns ex-governor and ex-con John Rowland.
A federal criminal grand jury is investigating ex-governor John G. Rowland’s consulting work and campaign activities, Courant columnist Kevin Rennie reported Monday in his Daily Ructions blog.
The existence of the probe was verified later Monday, as one person confirmed that he had been contacted by federal authorities and had provided information about consulting work that Rowland did for him.
I’m not a reporter. I’m not a political reporter. I have no idea if Rowland did what he’s not quite accused of doing… and if he did it, was it illegal?
John Edwards and Roger Clemens stand as proof accusation doesn’t mean conviction!
What sage wisdom can I offer? I have met John Rowland a bunch of times. He is charming.
It’s really a bigger deal than that last sentence implies. He is CHARMING!
It is difficult to meet him and not leave thinking what a great guy he is and how much fun he’d be to hang with. Unfortunately, charming doesn’t mean innocent.

Con men are PROFESSIONAL charmers. That’s their core job description. It’s exactly what they do.
I think this is really about Malloy and Courant trying to silence the guy for calling out their misdeeds and propaganda. Trying to sneak in the limits on FOI and the Courants own interest is the busway to name two.
Wasn’t the bus-way initiated during the Rowland administration? If it is such a bad idea now, why did Gov. Rowland (and subsequently Gov. Rell) create and support it then?
The word ~Snake-Charmer~, ring any bells???
