    1.Possibly the most damaging new revelation in the allegations made by the feds in today’s indictment of John G. Rowland is that he apparently signed off emails — even to men he didn’t know all that well — “Love the Gov.”

    HARTFORD — Former Gov. John G. Rowland, identified Monday in federal court as a co-conspirator in an alleged campaign financing scheme, announced Thursday that he was leaving as WTIC-AM's afternoon talk-show host. "Today will be my last show as I leave the station to take care of some personal issues," he said just before 6 p.m, at the end of his regular three-hour time slot. "We accept Mr. Rowland's decision to step down at this time," WTIC Program Director Jenneen Lee said in an email at 6:06 p.m. "Pastor Will will take over the 3 to 6 p.m. show beginning...

    Buffalo--Dr. Jill Rowland, a dentist and candidate for The House of Representatives in the 28th district of New York, today offered to provide free dentures to the Louise Slaughter constituent made famous at the White House Health Care Summit for wearing her dead sisters teeth because she lacked dentures (See video link below). Slaughter, whose office claims they learned of the story from Dr. Lavonne Ansari of the Community Health Center of Buffalo never mentioned the woman by name, only referring to her as a constituent. Candidate Rowland commented, "While the work that Dr. Ansari and her husband Imam Fajri...

    Because she thinks her re-election is in the bag! Louise represents District 28 which has part of Buffalo and Rochester in a very gerrymandered district. Rochester and Buffalo New York are rarely mentioned in the same sentence. Both cities are heavily democratic and are joined together as part of the 28th Congressional District of New York, currently held by Louise Slaughter. This is a perfect district to gauge "voter anger" According to the Main Stream Media TEA Party Groups are extremists. Anti Incumbent leanings are few and far between and are nothing to worry about. This anomaly will soon pass...

    Democrat and Chronicle ^ | October 7, 2010 | Brian Tumulty
    The Republican challenger is pragmatic about her long-shot candidacy. Rowland has been operating her campaign on a shoestring, spending only $376 through Sept. 2. As of that date she had raised less than $5,000 and had contributed only $250 of her own money. Even so, Rowland said she’s hoping to raise $100,000 for the race. Her campaign strategy involves personal exposure, attending public events, knocking on doors and doing interviews on radio and with other media. And she’s tapping into voter frustration with the federal government. “Right now there is a ruling elite party in Washington to tell you how...

    Waterbury Republican-American ^ | December 7, 2007 | Editorial
    In 1998, then-Gov. John G. Rowland boosted his re-election prospects by creating the Healthcare for UninSured Kids and Youth program. HUSKY was intended to provide no more than 90,000 impoverished children with the same access to medical care as state employees. But the issue was never about access, but who pays; ultimately, this "conservative Republican" chose the government solution. At HUSKY's inception, 6.7 percent of Connecticut's children were uninsured. Today, HUSKY enrollment is a robust 323,000, even though the services it provides have never come close to matching the political rhetoric. And despite the infusion of hundreds of millions in...

    NEW HAVEN, Conn. - A state contractor and a top aide to imprisoned former Gov. John G. Rowland each pleaded guilty to two felonies Tuesday, ending a public corruption case that led to the one-time political star's downfall. Contractor William Tomasso and Peter Ellef, who was Rowland's co-chief of staff, pleaded guilty under a plea deal to conspiracy to commit tax fraud and bribery. Prosecutors said the men ran a criminal enterprise out of the governor's office, with Ellef steering multimillion dollar contracts to Tomasso in exchange for gold, cash, travel and gifts. Each faces a maximum of 10 years...

    Hartford -- Connecticut's top prosecutor is seeking an arrest warrant for former Gov. John G. Rowland amid an investigation into ties between Rowland and state contractors, his attorney said Monday. Rowland has been in a federal prison in Pennsylvania since April after pleading guilty to a charge he conspired to trade his office for favors and to commit tax fraud. State prosecutors are looking into whether consulting work Rowland accepted after he relinquished the governorship last year violated Connecticut's "revolving door" laws. R. Bartley Halloran, Rowland's attorney, said he does not know the specific charges being sought by the state,...

    LORETTO, Pa. - Former Connecticut Gov. John G. Rowland arrived at a federal prison Friday morning to serve a yearlong sentence for corruption, coming through a back entrance to avoid reporters. Rowland was sentenced to one year and one day at the camp but will be eligible for release after 10 months. He must also serve four months of house arrest. Earlier in the day, the three-term Republican gave thanks for his family and supporters. "Throughout this whole ordeal, one thing has become abundantly clear: how blessed I am to have such a wonderful wife and loving children," Rowland, 47,...

    It started with a faxed note to then-Gov. John G. Rowland's office, an invitation to prayer in the days following the December 2003 press conference in which he lied about improvements to his Litchfield cottage. "I just felt really bad for him. ...I hate to see anyone in the public eye under that kind of pressure," recalled the Rev. Will Marotti, pastor of the evangelical New Life Church in Meriden. "So I said, `If you're interested in getting together for prayer, I'm available.' No strings attached. No media. Wasn't looking for a photo op. Just prayer." Rowland accepted, and the...

    A continental breakfast is offered daily. Monday's lunch featured beef tacos -- with a vegetarian, soy-based ''heart-healthy" alternative -- along with seasoned pinto beans and a choice of steamed or Spanish rice. Family visits at the minimum-security prison can last for hours. More summer camp than hard-core penitentiary, the federal camp at the former Fort Devens in Ayer where former Connecticut governor John G. Rowland is expected to begin a yearlong sentence next week is about as cushy as the big house gets. Inmates can lounge in front of the television until 2 a.m. on weekends and holidays. No one...

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Once one of the nation’s brightest political stars, former Gov. John G.

    In finally admitting guilt as a corrupted public servant, former Gov. John Rowland of Connecticut could not resist one more attempt at self-serving finesse, resorting to the passive impersonal in declaring, "Mistakes have been made." Facing stiff prison time, the onetime G.O.P. boy wonder did admit to "responsibility" for those mistakes. But Mr. Rowland hardly apologized for the deep betrayal and humiliation he put the state through in personally turning his administration into a thieves' mart for crooked contractors and cronies. Rather, Mr. Rowland asked voters to "understand what we have tried to do" in 25 years of public service,...
