More Corruption in Connecticut?

Norm Pattis has an interesting entry on the Crime & Federalism blog  (here) discussing an investigation of an Assistant State's Attorney in Connecticut, which just saw its former governor (John Rowland) sentenced to one year after pleading guilty to receiving unlawful gratuities.  Norm writes: "Now comes news that a prosecutor may not have been able to avoid all the fun. Supervisory Assistant State's Attorney David Newman of New Haven is under the microscope, according to the Chief State's Attorney's Office. Suspicions that all is not well in the historic Elm Street courthouse. According to the New Haven Register, questions have arisen about whether Mr. Newman regards himself as a legitimate beneficiary of charitable contributions intended to resolve minor offenses." (ph)
