A Win for Former Gov. Rowland

Former Governor Rowland of Connecticut left office under a cloud after being sentenced to a year and a day in prison. His post-governor employment raised ethics issues at his sentencing and then again, when the state's attorney's office tried to have Rowland arrested for violating a criminal ethics prohibition of Connecticut.  The Hartford Courant reports here that the judge hearing the case said - no way to arresting Rowland. And as noted in this newspaper story, even those opposed to Rowland appear to agree with this decision.
