Mayor Perez

Even though I've known about the percolating scandal involving Eddie Perez for a while now, I guess it took traveling out of state to bring it home. Yahoo News had the headline on the front page yesterday; USA Today has a small piece on Page 3 - Hartford mayor denies bribery claim

Yep, a little hometown pride....

Makes me wonder whether CT politics are really so much more ethically challenged than other states (sundry big city mayors as well as a big chunk of the Rowland administration) or are we just more likely to dig in, not ignore this sort of quid pro quo, etc.
