In what may be the first salvo fired in the 2014 race for governor, Republican Tom Foley leveled serious accusations of ethical lapses against Governor Dannel Malloy. Foley has opened an exploratory campaign, the first step in a run in ’14.
On WFSB’s “Face the State with Dennis House” that aired Sunday, the 2010 GOP gubernatorial nominee detailed four allegations of ethical misconduct regarding the governor. The link to the interview is below.
We also have reaction and analysis from Duby McDowell and Brian Flaherty.

Seems to be the norm of Liberal politicians these days…
It’s nothing new Dennis.
Foley has a good point. Shortcuts utilizing politics for profit erodes confidence in government and our states economy. If lobbyists are playing toll collector everytime they need something from the governor hurts.
This reels of McCarthyism. It is the worst form of the political discourse. We have to believe his sources are Republicans at are trying to discredit the Malloy Administration.
Show some credibility Ambassador Foley. Offer of proof would be a good first step.
I wonder if at least one involves Executive Orders 9 & 10 forcibly unionizing childcare providers receiving Care 4 Kids and personal care attendants. As I noted back in December 2011 when I and other opponents of forced unionization witnessed this at the Capitol regarding the implementation of Executive Order 9:
The minutes of Governor Malloy’s Family Child Care Working Group (Friday, December 9, 2011) reveal collusion, which I personally witnessed, between the Governor’s office and SEIU to get providers to vote for the union:

“Peter Palermino asked if there was a representative from SEIU in attendance. A representative was identified and Peter Palermino asked if SEIU or the Governor’s office could direct the Department of Social Services (DSS) on the proper response for their call center when family child care providers inquired about the voting process to begin the majority representative process.
Chris Drake from the Governor’s office said that he would work with SEIU to get that information to Peter Palermino.”
Any wonder why we just had a lopsided vote when DSS and the Governor’s office were engaged in highly unethical and perhaps illegal electioneering on behalf of SEIU?
I posted the above comment back on December 20, 2011, right after we all witnessed this, at http://www.ctnewsjunkie.com/ctnj.php/archives/entry/day_care_workers_vote_to_unionize/
