<quoted text>...If i really had a clue as to who is on this state commitee that gave this crook 80 grand, I would be looking for the inbred connection here. Race or political party has pretty much nothing to do with Ct. corruption, it's a team effort. DEP and Health cover up the dumping which includes McKinney from when he chaired the St. Environmental Commitee, road construction has it's fleet of contract fixers and Blumenthal and now his successor make it look legal. As in the approval of no-bid contracts and dismissing suits to correct the crimes. Have a few days for details on how, when and where? The U.S. and States Attornies don't care, even with details. FBI is stupid friends, actually inbreds with a lot of the lower end crooks. Notice certain names are not in their "drug sweeps?" Way to slow the competition down.
Sounds like you did your homework, CTM. It always me how much illegal stuff goes on behind everyone's back and it just goes on and on. These crooks rely on people just going about their business and turning a blind eye to the corruption as long as it doesn't affect their daily lives.
Power, money and greed. The 3 ingrediants of a recipe for a social downfall and economic disaster.

... Hey, the economic disaster happens here every day, politicians steal more. Bond issues are another credit card to them so they have been charging more money to steal more money, that would be the debt Ct. is in.The social downfall? People and businesses are leaving Ct. in droves. Look at all the happy people throwing eggs at the repairmen. I'd like to see Blumenthal walk down the street with no protection and address a group that actually knows the truth about him, not what his father-in-law has on the media.

Notice C44 hasn't been here, the truth in a newspaper will bust the little brown bubble he lives in. Newton fraudulently filled out the forms for this amount,$80,550.00, not $500.00.

Here's a direct quote from the CT Post:

"According to the arrest warrant affidavit, Newton was $500 short of the $15,000 he needed to raise in private contributions to qualify for the public funds. To make up the difference, Newton is accused of having five campaign workers sign cards stating they had contributed to the campaign, when they actually had not done so."

Wow you can't go 10 seconds without imagining a conspiracy, can you? Do you think this is connected to Blumenthals father-in-law, because he 'owns the empire state building'?

They're coming to take you away! They're coming to take you away! They're coming to take you away!

.........You really are a crook, aren't you? Nothing but excuses for our crooked politicians and helping to push that Adam Lanza was mentally ill. Hey, BIAT CH!! He got $80,550.00 for that fraud!! I would say try to be honest, but that Newtown inbred color shows through.

'The Media' doesn't give two shits about Blumenthal's father. Pack your bags CTM, you going to the loonie bin! Too bad Adam Lanza won't be there to keep you company.

... Hey, dip sh! t, that's the fraud he commited to get $80,550.00. The commitee gave a felon $80,550.00 of taxpayer money. It's not $500.00, it's the fraud to get $80,550.00. Do you have callouses on your lips from this guy?

...... Thanks, you really just proved you don't know how to read, and that you really are that stupid. Blumenthals father-in-law, Malkin, owns a really big chunk of the media. That's why they show up to give that puppet his photo-op every ten minutes.

LOL! They know who you are. They know where you are and they are coming! Pretty soon we will be living in a world like the movie: "Equilibrium", or what's that other movie with Tom Cruise where he can see the future crimes being commited and pre-arrest the culprits? Hey, it may be possible. No more crimes and we can throw out all those dumb gun control laws!!

YOU brought up Blumenthals father-in-law, I called you on it.

I'm not so much trying to discredit your fantasies as I am trying to point out you're not well grounded in reality. Which, you ought to know, doesn't then make your fantasies have a lot of truth in them.

There are several other media moguls who own lots of stuff.... what about them? They would then have the scoop on the corruption stories, as well as the complicit silence of the 'Malkin controlled media'(LOL). But you don't see any such reporting, because this is all taking place IN YOUR HEAD!!
