I have kind of a busy morning, so: not much time to comment on this piece which is the most important piece of journalism in Connecticut today and yet, inexplicably, was not on the front page.
There is a rich irony in the idea of Matt Hennessey, the Richelieu of Eddie Perez, sputtering about favoritism, fraud and sham bidding processes. (See my title.) But yes, absolutely, it draws back the curtain on Connecticut’s class of operators who treat the government like a giant ATM machine whose PIN code they know. And Tommy Ritter is the absolutely best at exactly the kind of sweet set-up you see here.
And what the hell does CRRA — a quasi public agency — need $250,000 worth of Tommy Ritter for? Whatever it is, the cost of Tommy will be passed on to you, in the form of higher tipping fees.
