08/05/10 POLITICS: Greenwich Resident Dick Blumenthal Cites Fellow Democrat Susan Bysiewicz’ ‘Inappropriate’ Use Of Database

BREAKING NEWS: Blumenthal Cites Bysiewicz' 'Inappropriate' Use Of Database

The state attorney general said Thursday that he has found "inappropriate" political use of taxpayer-funded resources in the office of Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz -- and has referred the matter to the state's top prosecutor, Chief State's Attorney Kevin Kane, to determine if criminal laws were broken.....

....Bysiewicz's database has been controversial since The Courant began writing about it in February. Disclosures about it have included the fact that it not only includes people's addresses, phone numbers and e-mails, but also notations about their political leanings and even their race.


For example, it contains a category headed "Ethnicity," identifying more than 2,400 people as either Polish, Greek, African American, Hispanic, Native American or Jewish. Blumenthal said Thursday: "While certain data entered into the database may have had a legitimate state purpose, data heading titles based on religion, race and ethnicity are not proper or appropriate for this type of state database.".....



....Bysiewicz's database also had heading for "holiday cards," which she said was used to keep a record of those who had sent such cards to her office. Blumenthal said Thursday: "Collecting and maintaining a list of holiday cards received by the Office of the Secretary of the State is not illegal, but that information was transmitted to [Bysiewicz's campaign committee] in February 2009," and the committee "sent out 11,850 holiday cards in December 2009." He discussed the holiday cards immediately after noting that certain information, "even if properly included in such a state database, reasonably raises the perception that the database was also maintained to assist in election campaigns by Susan Bysiewicz."

Meanwhile, even though Bysiewicz's candidacy for attorney general ended abruptly May 18 when the state Supreme Court ruled her ineligible for the office, she still has continued to spend thousands of leftover dollars from her campaign committee in the 2½ months since then.

She kept her campaign headquarters open in a Rocky Hill office building as least through last week - and she held a series of at least seven "thank-you" parties around the state for her supporters and other active Democrats from June 14 to 30 at restaurants, churches, ethnic clubs and a vineyard. Bysiewicz, who will leave office next January, has already been putting out feelers among Democrats about whether they will support her for the party's nomination for U.S. Senate in 2012 - and some wonder if the recent parties were intended to help set her up for that.

Bysiewicz had $278,000 left in her campaign's account as of June 30. State election laws permit candidates to dispose of surplus campaign funds by returning them to donors, or by giving them to charities or to the state's public-financing fund for elections, according to the State Elections Enforcement Commission. The commission also says it's permissible to throw "a 'thank-you' party for campaign workers.".....


....The state's Republican Party chairman, Chris Healy, said Blumenthal's Thursday actions "while long overdue, are appropriate given the seriousness of the charge - that Secretary Bysiewicz improperly used state resources to promote her political career. It seems Secretary Bysiewicz never follows the rules, which is unfortunate considering she the chief elected official of our elections system.".....

08/05/10 Ned Lamont's Campaign Statement On Today's Q-Poll

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 5, 2010

Contact: Justine Sessions, 860-418-7405/Brian Coy, 703-477-8222

Lamont Campaign Statement on Today's Q-Poll

New Haven, CT - Businessman Ned Lamont's campaign released the following statement after the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute released the results of a statewide poll showing Lamont maintaining his lead in the Democratic gubernatorial primary:

"Despite a two-week barrage of Dan Malloy's false, negative ads and his repetition of four-year-old lies about Ned and his company, Connecticut voters still know that Ned Lamont has the best experience to create jobs and help their families. By a nearly two to one margin, Connecticut Democrats know that Ned is the candidate who has what takes to beat the Republicans, take back the Governor's mansion, and get our state moving forward," said Lamont Communications Director Justine Sessions.

"While Dan's campaign grows more desperate and erratic every day, we're sticking to our strategy and talking to the people of Connecticut about the issue that they care about most: jobs. We've got a robust field operation that will turn out our voters on election day, and with just 5 days to go, the only poll that matters to us is next Tuesday."

08/04/10 The Raw Ned Lamont News Feed: Top Story Greenwich Roundup Poll Says Ned Lamont's Lead Over Dan Malloy Has Vanished.

NEW POLL:Greenwich Resident Ned Lamont's Has No Local Lead Over Former Stamford Mayor Dan Malloy In The Upcoming Democratic Primary On Tuesday

Since Monday Greenwich Roundup has informally interviewed 22 Greenwich Democrats and was shocked to learn that only 3 said that they were voting for Ned Lamont.

Nine Greenwich Democrats seemed unaware that that the Democratic primary was to be held in just six days.

Of the 22 Greenwich Democrats interviewed only six said that they were voting in the primary and all of these Democrats said they are voting for Stamford resident Dan Malloy.

Greenwich Roundup did not find any Greenwich Democrats who were unsure or sitting on the fence when it came to Ned Lamont or Dan Malloy.

The Greenwich Roundup poll has found that Greenwich Democratic voters are strongly committed to sticking with the party nominee.

It appears that Ned Lamont's only hope of squeaking out a win is other more liberal metropolitan areas like Bridgeport, New Haven and Hartford.

Even though the the Greenwich Roundup poll probably has error margin of plus or minus 98% due to it's small size.

However this reporter / slash pollster was shocked that there was virtually no support for Ned Lamont in his own hometown of Greenwich.

The front runner in previous polls was Greenwich businessman, Ned Lamont who has a largely self-funding his campaign. Mr. Lamont has promised to use his business experience to fix
Connecticut's stagnant economy and a projected deficit next year of $3.4 billion.

Dan Malloy who is a Stamford resident and an experienced elected official, is casting himself as ready to the do the job.

Dan Malloy was mayor of Stamford for 14 years and just received $2.5 million in public financing and has used that money to quickly close in on and possibly overtake the wealthy Ned Lamont.

Ned Lamont is probably anticipating that a new
Quinnipiac Universitypoll being made public Thursday will disclose what he has most likely been seeing in private polling

Former Stamford Mayor Dan Malloy is coming on fast and hard in the last days of this
primary election.

This has happened before. Ned Lamont spent $17 Million on his Senate campaign against
Joseph Lieberman only to come out a loser in 2006.

The big question now is....

Will History repeat itself?

Political insiders are saying that Ned Lamont has probably spent 7 to 9 Million an a primary election that he just may lose in six days.

Maybe Ned Lamont still has a chance.

In the the final gubernatorial primary poll in 2006, when Stamford Mayor Dan Malloy was running against New Haven Mayor John DeStefano, Dan Malloy was down by 7 percentage points and then days later, Dan Malloy lost by 1.5 percentage points.

It looks like we will know if Ned Lamont wasted another 9 Million bucks on Tuesday night.

All told is looks like Ned Lamont will have spent well over 25 Million on two self funded Connecticut political campaigns.

That is an awful lot of money could have been used to feed a lot of hungry children or provided educational opportunities to the disadvantaged.
