This just in from 77th District Democratic candidate Christopher Wright:
State Representative candidate Christopher Wright (D 77th) has called on Governor Rell to take action against Maureen Duggan, the former Ethics Commission attorney who wrote a fraudulent “anonymous” letter criticizing her then-boss which led to his dismissal.
“Here is a case where we have no question of guilt since Ms. Duggan has admitted under oath to her actions. So far, the only response from the Governor is that her office will look into it. The people of Connecticut deserve public servants that are held to the highest ethical standards. Allowing an attorney to fabricate evidence, lie about it and still keep her job is simply not acceptable.”
Wright said that the tepid response from the Governor’s office was extremely disappointing. He also indicated that as a member of the Legislature, he would investigate whether Ms. Duggan could be sanctioned under the proposed state law which would strip state employees who act in an illegal or unethical manner of any post-employment benefits.
