2014 is the year we mark a dubious anniversary in Connecticut history. Ten years ago, the state’s once popular three term governor was the focus of a corruption scandal that eventually culminated in his resignation. A decade later, former governor John Rowland reportedly could now be facing more trouble with the Feds.
It is a very complicated case, and to help explain it, we invited Jon Lender of the Hartford Courant to come on Face the State this past Sunday.
Jon is regarded as one of the best reporters in the state, with 40 years experience at the state’s largest newspaper. He has great sources. This Sunday Jon walked us through the Rowland story that he broke this week, and gave us unique perspective on what might happen.
