CT Dems Chair on Reports of Workers Compensation Abuse by Republican State Senator

“A recent report in CT Insider that details State Sen. Paul Cicarella’s collection of $123,000 in workers compensation payments while earning income from three other sources, raises questions of propriety and legality. Worker’s compensation is intended to replace income for people injured on the job who cannot work, not to provide additional income for people who can continue to earn a living.

If the facts outlined in the June 12th CT Insider story are accurate, Senator Cicarella’s activity should be investigated further. Public servants who violate the public trust are not above the law.”
