07/02/10 Lt. Gov. Michael Fedele To Be A Dignitary At Town Hall While Disgraced Greenwich Resident Tom Foley Chooses To Stay Away

Calling All Patriots: Lt. Gov. Michael Fedele Will Attend July 4th Event At Greenwich Town Hall

Greenwich will recognize its roots — at the seventh annual Fourth of July celebration at Town Hall this Sunday at 9 a.m.

Bea Crumbine and co-organizer Jennifer Larkin want to make sure everyone remembers and reflects on the fact that Greenwich was on the front lines of the Revolutionary War.

The Sound Beach Community Band will play patriotic tunes. Thirteen Boy Scouts will march in carrying the flags of the 13 original colonies. The Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich’s Honor Guard will raise a replica of the Betsy Ross flag donated by Mr. and Mrs. Malcolm Pray. Children of the American Revolution will lead the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance. Noel Valentine will recite the poem “The Flag.

Girl and Boy Scouts will read selections from the Declaration of Independence.

The names of the 16 citizen soldiers from Greenwich killed in the Revolutionary War will be read aloud and honored, names familiar to local residents — Mead, Palmer, Reynolds, Lockwood, Knapp. And 23 of their surviving descendants will be on hand.

The Greenwich Police Honor Guard will fire its cannon and Ms. Crumbine said there might even be a 21-gun salute.

Honored dignitaries in attendance will include Lt. Gov. Michael Fedele, U.S. Rep. Jim Himes, State Reps. Lile Gibbons and Fred Camillo, and Bruce Winningham, co-founder of the Greenwich Military Covenant of Care, as well as all three Greenwich First Selectmen.

Later, the audience will be invited inside Town Hall for refreshments, including apple cider and a piece of one of four “Happy Birthday America” cakes.

Greenwich voters can mingle and talk and get to meet Lt. Gov. Michael Fedele, who is running against Greenwich resident Tom Foley in the Republican primary this August.

The Town of Greenwich will be hosting fireworks displays Saturday, July 3, at 9 p.m. at Binney Park and Greenwich Point Park. The rain date will be Monday, July 5, same time and locations.

We are told that Greenwich Resident Tom Foley can not attend this hometown event, because he will be out on the road traveling to another destination.

Perhaps, the Connecticut State Police should issue a Tom Foley Road Rage Alert, so that motorists can be made aware that Mr. Foley's car is once again out and about.

07/02/10 Foleygate Update:Greenwich Resident Tom Foley's 4th Of July Holiday Is Starting Off With A Thud Instead Of A Bang

EDITORIAL: Tom Foley's Dark Side

Governor Wanna Be Refuses To
Come Clean About His Domestic Violence Issues?

Tom "I Don't Have An Anger Management Problem" Foley Wants Voters To Believe That His Ex- Wife Lisa Foley Is A Habitual Liar.

Connecticut GOP gubernatorial candidate and Greenwich resident. Tom Foley:

First came reports of traffic arrests in the 80's and 90's.

Tom "I Don't Have An Anger Management Problem" Foley still isn't being straightforward and transparent with the voters about his two arrests that involved road rage incidents.

It appears that the very temperamental and privileged Foley thinks that he can respond to questions about his past through press releases.

Still Tom Foley refuses to personally provide the police and court records that might provide balance and context about his arrests in 1981 and 1993.

n one case, Foley's ex-wife alleges that Foley tried to force her car off the road.

Then there was the revelation of a report filed in 2002 by his ex-wife alleging abuse.

Yet, Tom "I Never Slapped My Wife Around "Foley refuses to let the media have full access to the police reports.

Then Tom "I Am In Middle Of A Nasty Divorce" Foley was ppointed co-chair to a special commission -- otherwise stocked with judges, lawyers and mental health professionals -- on divorce and custody when his only apparent qualification was that he was a really pissed-off ex-husband.

Was that an appropriate position for Tom "I Never Slapped My Wife Around" Foley?

Foley was just using his clout as a mega fund-raiser -- to influence divorce and custody laws that could benefit him.

Tom "I Never Slapped My Wife Around" Foley was still in the thick of a bitter divorce.

Would Tom Foley, as a governor, appoint somebody like this to a job like that?

And did Rowland's office, upon receipt of the ex-wife's letter, re-think the nomination even a little?

I think we know the answer.

Today, Tom "I Only Talk To The Media Via Press Releases" Foley fired of a "detailed explanation" of why he got a signed statement in 2006 - the year he was nominated for the Ireland Ambassador post - from his ex-wife that he had never threatened or physically harmed her.

Foley's pleas for the media and other gubernatorial candidates to respect his privacy are ludicrous at best.

This issue has nothing to do with Foley's family.

Until he speaks publicly about why his wife flipped the script - Foley will have a hard time getting beyond it.

If Foley Can't Take The Heat He Should Get Out Of The Kitchen.

God Forbid that the unbalanced Foley is elected Governor of the State Of Connecticut and has to face criss after criss day after day,

Foley's unwillingness to be transparent will be a disaster for Connecticut.

It is a legitimate for the media to question Foley on these arrests.

It is telling that Foley is unable to stand a deliver the truth to the voters of Connecticut. .

Being Governor is different than running a little company where you control everything.

These are things Foley obviously knew about,

Why didn't Foley put these on the record at the very start?

These are important issues.

We've had a governor go to prison, we've had mayors go to prison in this state.

Let's Not Get Fooled again.

Please See:

To possible Governor Tom Foley:

Information gets out. Deal with it.


It’s not uncommon for some candidates/politicians/voters to insist a distinction be drawn between an official’s private and public life and that the media too often focuses on the former.

When newspapers dig into a candidate’s arrest record, as was the case Friday with The Hartford Courant’s coverage of Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Foley, one of the more typical reactions is: “C’mon. Is this all the media cares about? We’re facing real issues in this state. What do unprosecuted arrests from 1981 and 1993 have to do with solving Connecticut’s budget crisis? This is exactly why good people don’t seek public office – because they have to worry about personal issues being blown out of proportion on the front pages.”

And sure enough Foley in response to the report told the Associated Press: “It was a personal matter. I think my qualifications for governor are related to my career and business experience.”

But after Foley’s opponents in August’s GOP primary – Lt. Governor Michael Fedele of Stamford and businessman Oz Griebel of Simsbury – called on him to be more forthcoming about the arrests, Foley issued a lengthy statement Friday night that instead questioned how the information reached the press.

According to The Courant, the arrests were detailed “in a binder of documents and allegations that Foley’s former wife provided in 2002 to the office of then-Gov. John G. Rowland. Copies of documents from the file were obtained by The Courant, although not from ex-wife Lisa Foley.”

Rowland had appointed Tom Foley to a seat on a new task force to examine the state’s divorce and child custody laws. His wife thought his participation was a bad idea.

Foley in his statement issued Friday night said: “I first heard about the letter (from his wife to Rowland) yesterday afternoon after it was leaked to the Hartford Courant. The circumstances of how a confidential document from the Governor’s office was leaked to the press and by whom raise serious questions.”

Confidential document? Before taking over the Governor’s office, Foley needs to familiarize himself with the state Freedom of Information Act which requires all sorts of documents, including a Governor’s correspondence, to be made available to the public, including reporters, upon request.

I don’t know how The Courant obtained the letter to Rowland about Foley’s arrests, but it is very possible the newspaper did so through the Freedom of Information Act and not, as Foley implies, some “Deep Throat” transaction in a dimly lit Hartford parking garage.

Also court records are available through FOIA, like those detailing Foley’s contentious divorce and child custody battle that my Hearst colleague, Ken Dixon, reported about last weekend.

As he seeks a public elected office for the first time Foley needs to understand, like it or not, this information is available to the public.

But even if the letter detailing Foley’s arrests was “leaked” to The Courant by someone in state government, so what? The public often has to rely on government employees’ willingness to pass along information to reporters in order to get a better idea of what their elected officials are up to.

Foley’s Republican opponents are hoping the arrests lead voters to question Foley’s character.

But voters should also be scrutinizing Foley’s response and how it reflects on his own personal views and understanding about the need for transparency within state government and within the Governor’s office.

Will Governor Foley seek to keep documents critical of his appointments/administration/himself from the press/public? And when they do get out, will he address them head on or spend all his time downplaying the information and focus instead on trying to plug leaks in his administration?

07/02/10 Is Rob Simmons Running A Stealth Senate Campaign Against Greenwich Resident Linda McMahon

Oddly enough, Michael Steele may have done Republicans a favor by claiming the war in Afghanistan was started by President Obama.

He made those comments last night in Connecticut, at a fundraiser for the state party at Abbott's Lobster in the Rough in Groton.

There was another reason to pay attention to this fundraiser, which no one is talking about because of Steele:

It was cohosted by former Rep. Rob Simmons, and his former Senate primary foe, Linda McMahon, was also slated to attend.

Here's why that's interesting.

For all intents and purposes, the Connecticut Senate race has moved into general election mode, but speculation has lingered that Simmons, though he suspended his campaign in May, is hanging around and hoping to steal the Republican nomination from McMahon, the former CEO of the WWE.

His name will still appear on the ballot in the August primary, along with McMahon's and that of Conservative Tea Party favorite Peter Schiff.

McMahon suggested in an interview with Hotline OnCall's Reid Wilson that Simmons might be running a stealth campaign against her.

Simmons and McMahon don't seem to like each other.

Simmons told The National Review, shortly after he suspended his campaign following a defeat to McMahon at the state GOP convention, that he wouldn't endorse McMahon and didn't think she could win. His campaign highlighted some cutting opposition research about McMahon's tenure at WWE, and all the sleazy stuff WWE's wrestling/entertainment regime encompasses.

Which would make Simmons' and McMahon's co-appearance at a state GOP fundraiser a bit awkward, if not quite a major story.

No one is really talking about that, or the smoldering bitterness of the Connecticut Republican Senate primary, thanks to Michael Steele.

Then again, Steele's comments don't exactly help Republicans in Connecticut, either.

McMahon is trying to run an outsider campaign, and the last thing she needs is the chairman of the Republican National Committee, the party's top establishment official, making headlines in Connecticut.
