They are the cases and the faces that earned us the nick name Corrupticut. Governor Rowland resigns, serves time in prison and mayors too; Waterbury's Philip Giordano, Bridgeport's Joe Ganim both remain behind bars.

Amazing just how much these crooks want to protect their criminal enterprise called the state of Connecticut. They are already working on Malloys re-election campaign. The infrastructure of this ongoing criminal enterprise are the hand-picked criminals working on creating and awarding road contracts and the D.E.E.P. With the FBI, the States Attorney and U.S. Attorney stopping complaints and prosecution, what do you do? Let one of their affiliated criminals claim someone is pouring Anthrax out on the street and they will come running, no BS, they already have...
Brilliant! I'm betting they will create this anthrax hoax before the night is out. Ottie Lundgren was Blumenthal's godmother, BTW.

I think you meant cougars, not coyotes. And I would hate to think of what 'much older' would look like. I'm not exactly young (except mentally)

..........Yes, that ten year old mentality shows through quite well. Check the papers for the anthrax thing in Newtown, that did happen.

Yes, but it was orchestrated by Blumenthal to cover up his legal issues concerning the pension funds.

Are you referring to this? You mentioned the anthrax thing several days ago, now I can't find your reference.

noooo! you're trying to drug me into submission! Are you working for Blumenthal?

Dude people have been reading my posts on here for years. The big word thing won't fly. When do you stop seeing conspiracies in every aspect of Newton/Blumenthal? And no I'm not going to search the 'Newtown Bee', post a link if you have a point. Small town newspapers are generally unreadable crap. Try Clinton's 'Harbor News'! Its like Chinese water torture.

The 'he was on drugs' poster posted a link which turns out to be an entire 60 minutes segment. I'm supposed to sit through that ENTIRE THING to catch one remark? Yeah right.

WHAT is documented specifically? You have put out accusations, conspiracies, innuendos, anecdotes, stories, inferences, tales, old wives tales, myths, sagas, etc. I should list them. No, wait, that would take a long time.... I only use my time wisely (thats a joke).

How come you're the only guy screaming this stuff? I realize most reporters are liberal scum, but surely if your accusations had validity we would be hearing more. Sure Blumenthal gets a pass because he's liberal scum, but I'm taking that into account.

..........Again, idiot, Blumenthals father-in-law owns a lot of media and stuff like the Empire State Building. If you ever read the list of dump sites I put on a few threads you would know they come from an illegally dismissed suit. Ever read People Magazine? That's where you can find the article about the guy that walked into the Teachers Retirement Fund Office and walked out with a check for $100,000,000.00 and Blumenthal didn't even go after him. He approves the state contracts. He has to approve and check the bid process, what happened to the 1/4 billion$$ that got Rowland put in jail? A Stamford Advocate story was screaming the question why wasn't Blumenthal charged? Get you some big boy glasses and do some reading like the interview of his ex-partner about getting the 1/4 billion no bid contract. This is just the stuff I found, and I have found a lot of cleaned out files too!

<<with umbrage>>> Ever read Peoples Magazine? Yeah CTM, like everyone else I occasionally go to a dentist.
Ha ha still mad, huh? Forgive me if your posts don't sound a bit loony. So people magazine (that paragon of important news) is saying some guy defrauded the fund or what? Sorry dude, thats a little tough to swallow, not even the Messiah himself could steal that amount and get away with it.. If that really happened, there would have been a lot more coverage than just some useless rag about useless hollywood types. Since you're clearly obsessed (and jealous of his war record) what was Blumenthal's justification for not going after him? Was he simply prevented by existing statutes? You should know what Blumenthal defends with, since you have him hanging in effigy in your attic.
I have seen your list of illegal dumps.
"Blumenthal's father in law owns a lot of media and stuff like the empire state building" Yeah.. and? You then fail to connect that to anything- in the very next sentence you're going on about something else. They may be coming to take you away!
You seem to imply that 1/4 billion was taken by Rowland, but thats not what happened. He awarded those contracts to his contractor buddies for chump change favors. The contracts were worth 1/4 billion, not the bribes.

..........You got the bribe and contract value understood, he went to jail for taking bribes. I still want to know where the 1/4 billion went, or can you not comprehend two things in one sentence? The Teachers thing was on Ct. news for about 5 minutes, gee, why wasn't it followed up? If you can't dazzle 'em with brilliance, baffle 'em with bul$#it. You are undoubtedly the King of baffle. Yes, that means no brilliance on your part.

???? Everyone knows (except you, apparently) the 1/4 billion went to the contractor for state highway work (which was actually done) You couldn't have missed that at the time; you couldn't miss it if you googled it now. Now also, you're saying someone 'walked into (someplace) and walked out with $ 1,000,000 check' and fox news only covered it for 5 minutes? Sorry, thats just not believable. I think as time goes by, you kind of embellish the story in your own mind. I hope you and PWilson are in contact, you're kindred souls. You're way, way off on what actually took place.

..........Really, the same way you can google Mt. Trashmore in Bpt. and find each the State, City and Crappoziellos giving over 600 grand to help clean it up, yes for a total over 1.8 mil. And a Crappoziello ended up in jail? Screw you, those are all lies. Every dime that has brought the clean-up of that poisonous pile of garbage to the point it is,(still not finished), has come from the Federal Gov't. Go to some of the community meetings. So tell me what did Blumenthal and McKinney do? Besides let the Crappoziello out the back door as soon as he walked through the front door of jail? Seems like they both cried to the EPA and got a lot of money to get their buddies to dump it somewhere else. Oh, yes, learn to read, it was $100,000,000.00 that was stolen. Denise Nappier was interviewed since Blumenthal was completely ignoring her pleas for help. So you really expect me to blieve the fix wasn't in from the begining?

Another straw man on your part- I never denied the mt. trashmore thing, in fact I lived in Bridgeport back when the bastard had to stand there like an idiot with a firehouse and douse it.
So 'those are all lies' is a bunch of crap, I have posted about mt. trashmore and how I remember it well.
I don't know if you realize it but they can't clean up every toxic site and every brownfield. This is not humanly possible, and can not be payed for. So it might be and probably is, that Blumenscum was the one (along with the EPA) to make the determination not to clean up some of these sites. You can certainly argue whether the right decision was made on each site- but he is probably backed up by the EPA. For a long time they were going to leave the pcb contamination in the hudson. It wasn't until Whitman headed the EPA that they decided to clean it; and it is and will be so expensive that it means they will deliberately ignore other sites. I hope those are all in Newtown. It will give you a purpose.
So you resort to preaching about something I never denied, mt trashmore.

So show me where an article says 100,000,000 was stolen. And it's ok just round an amount like that to dollars, I won't fault you for omitting the cents. Don't worry.

Really CTM? Your link has nothing to do with my comment. Absolutely nothing.
It does detail some of Blumenthal's overstepping of the law, yes. But it's not about Mr. Trashmore and its not about cleaning up toxic sites. So who is the idiot? And here is a bit of advice: when you post a link, do it with one 'paste' so the link actually works. You're the only one who puts errant spaces in your links so that the page you intend fails to load.

Just to make it clear I do find that article credible, and i do agree that Blumenthal is a scumbag, but I don't agree with some of your more paranoid notions, like the Newtown police destroying Adam Lanza's hard drive.

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