Congressional candidate Elizabeth Esty’s (D-Cheshire) use of a phone number in her husband’s name for her campaign does not violate any ethics rules, according to the Connecticut Elections Enforcement Commission, and the Office of State Ethics. Eyewitness News inquired about the telephone number, which is in the name of Esty’s husband, DEEP Commissioner Daniel Esty. The number appears on Esty’s campaign website, and the commissioner’s name appears in the Caller ID on calls from the campaign.
Elizabeth Esty was our guest on Face the State Sunday and was questioned about that, and other issues in her race for CT-5. Here is a link to to the interview: http://www.wfsb.com/video?autoStart=true&topVideoCatNo=default&clipId=6489843
