It’s back to the future! John Rowland is being chased by an (ex) FBI agent again.
Clark, FBI-agent-turned-5th-District-GOP-candidate, says he will file a Federal Elections Commission complaint against his Republican opponent Lisa Wilson-Foley for her undercover alliance with former Gov. John Rowland, whose afternoon radio show on WTIC focuses on politics.
Clark calls on Rowland to disclose all financial arrangements with Foley and her husband, business man Brian Foley:
I am dismayed that Lisa Wilson-Foley appears to have turned towards the very corruption I fought by welcoming assistance from the formerly-jailed ex-Governor. An alliance between a Congressional candidate and a convicted felon who was found to have deceived the residents of Connecticut from the state’s highest office is mind-boggling. This does more than raise eyebrows – it calls into question the very integrity of Wilson-Foley’s campaign, particularly as evidence continues to surface regarding Rowland’s past attempts to receive campaign money from other candidates through illicit means.
My investigations ensured that Connecticut citizens have increased transparency and accountability from their elected officials. I call on Lisa Wilson-Foley personally to immediately provide the transparency required of a public servant.
Lisa Wilson-Foley must publicly disclose any and all agreements between Brian Foley, his associated businesses, and John Rowland. She must disclose all agreements between herself, her campaign, Apple Rehab and any member of the Rowland family. These disclosures must include all dates and amounts of payments, as well as full explanations for any non-disclosure to this point. Further, I have instructed my staff to file a formal complaint with the Federal Election Commission, seeking its investigation regarding this alleged activity.
Wilson-Foley campaign spokesman Chris Healy could not be reached for comment this morning. State GOP Chair Jerry Labriola declined to comment except to say that “I plan to have a discussion with their campaign in the next couple of days.”
