Hartford, CT – Last night, Tom Foley issued a statement attempting to distance himself from convicted felon John Rowland after Rowland was indicted on seven new counts involving illegal campaign activity. While Foley casts himself as an ethical crusader in his absurd statement, back in the real world, we know that couldn’t be farther from the truth.
“Tom Foley says that ‘for over a year I have been calling for higher ethical standards in state government,” said Nancy DiNardo, Connecticut Democratic Party Chairwoman. “Would this be WHILE you were violating state election law, or did you take a hiatus from calling for higher election standards in order to do something that is clearly unethical? Just wondering.”
