The lobbyist bill was approved despite requests by some majority Democrats to ease the proposed restrictions, so public-service-minded people could serve in some capacity, even if they represent special interests.

'Public-service-minded people' serving special interests? This is the kind of talk we can expect to hear from our legislators concerning ethics.

What do they mean "could" loose their state pension. Hasn't that already happen? If not the state should get up to the plate and finish the job. Any other public employee, i.e. police, fire, teachers, would have had their pensions yanked. It is bad enough these public officials shafted us once, but will continue to do so on a monthly basis. Give the citizens of this state a break and for once do the right thing.

What I'd like to know is, why is the word MAY used for loss of pensions in regards to crooked ex-officials ????? They absolutely, positively SHOULDN'T receive any pension at all. Our hard earned tax dollars should not go to support the likes of these people who have stolen so much from the government and tax payers. Come on people, start screaming and yelling about this. Don't let these crooks get even one cent more from us....

Boy I thought all the crooks lived in the state of FLORIDA, however, I see where CONNECTICUT has their share. You must speak up and let the ones in charge know that you will not allow this to happen. Ex-crooks should be stripped of all benefits they may have had coming to them and what they deserve is a big zero...Let them go work for their money like we do. By the way, we are honest and still get no pensions...How do you like that?

They are SO MANY CORRUPT, Unethical Public SERVANTS WHO WE ARE STILL paying LARGE Salaries to, who LOVE to put our lives & safety in danger by refusing basic laws which keep the public safe!
East Hartford has to be one of the WORST towns in the state, when it comes to violating people's basic U.S. constitutional rights.
it has been sued 3 times now, in the last few years due to abusive, corrupt unethical police officers.
There are a FEW good police officers, but hardly the majority anymore!

Someone explain to us, why a police officer with 24 years experience on the police force, decides to shoot himself in the head, in a East Hartford police station,
in Connecticut?
that is so strange.....and sad too

It probably went to the same place as when Christina Ayala was caught falsely reporting where she lives.
