Connecticut General Statue 9-404b, section d, clearly states that each circulator must be a state resident and registered in the party they are collecting for.
I am not a lawyer, however it appears to me that (unless I have overlooked something) you have not provided enough facts in your allegation to establish that 9-404b paragraph d has been violated. It appears that the "gentleman with her" may indeed meet the legal requirement for being a "circulator". He must witness the signature on every petition page, and must take steps to verify that each signer is an elector, etc.
I do not see any prohibition against other people who do not meet the qualifications to be a "circulator" gathering registered voters to sign the petition, as long as the "circulator" is duly authorized and performs the necessary, prescribed functions attendant to obtaining the actual signature on the petition page. If, however, one of the folks coming from Montana ("going to raise me up a crop of dental floss," no doubt) were to perform the functions that are required by statute of the circulator, then that would seem to violate the law - but I'm not sure that you've made such an allegation.
So, IMHO, your allegation of illegality in this case may be unfounded.
As far as your allegations of possible tax code improprieties, that issue is not germane to the alleged violation of 9-404b, and it serves to distract from (and detract from) the issue that you are trying to push...
TYou will read the full interview with the AP tomorrow
The elections enforcement commission called me back and said I was right and asked me to come down and sign the affadavit
that is why I posted both sections, look to the upper section, paragraph 14 I think, it spells it out! :)
so, I know I was right.
