Holy Joe Took Dirty Money
Contributions from associates and friends of now-indicted garbage executive James Galante to the 2004 presidential campaign of U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman have sparked the interest of federal investigators.
Lieberman's bid for the White House took in at least $14,000 from Galante, his associates and their relatives in the fall of 2003, according to a Courant review of campaign records.
The contributions to Lieberman, a longtime Democrat who became an independent in 2006, are similar to allegedly bundled contributions to three Republican officeholders that earlier this month led to state charges against Galante, who is also facing a 2006 federal racketeering indictment.
I'm sure nothing will happen to Holy Joe, he was unknowning and innocent and had no idea what this criminal was up to, I'm sure. Still, it's always a good idea to follow the money. I just wish more people in CT had done so back when it mattered, and a perfectly acceptable alternative Rich White Guy could've been chosen.
