    Democratic Rep. Elizabeth Esty, who has apologized after she kept on a top aide for several months despite having learned of abuse allegations against him, said Friday that she has no plans to resign. "For those who have asked, I want to be clear that I am not resigning," the Connecticut lawmaker said in a statement to CNN. "I have important work to do in Congress including building on the lessons of this horrible series of events." Esty entered into a nondisclosure agreement with her former chief of staff Tony Baker and wrote a reference letter for him even after...

    HARTFORD, Conn. — Some Connecticut Democrats are calling for their embattled colleague U.S. Rep. Elizabeth Esty to step down for not protecting female staffers who say they experienced violence, death threats and sexual harassment by her former chief of staff. Esty is an outspoken advocate for the #MeToo movement. She has apologized for not protecting the staffers in her Washington office but has dismissed calls for her to resign. Former Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz (BY'-suh-wits) says the "emerging story regarding battery, harassment and threatening" from Esty's ex-chief of staff and Esty's handling of the response are "very troubling."...

    Dan Malloy has defeated Republican Tom Foley to become the first Democrat in two decades to be elected governor of Connecticut. The Associated Press on Friday reinstated its call of Malloy as the winner of the governor's race. The AP initially called Malloy the winner on Wednesday, after Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz said her preliminary count showed Malloy had won by 3,103 votes, but withdrew the call Wednesday night when its vote count, with all but a handful of precincts reporting, showed Foley with a narrow lead. Bridgeport elections officials handed the final numbers over to Bysiewicz on...
  • Conn. Secretary Of State: I Have No Answers On Gov Race

    There was election drama in Connecticut on Thursday. Two days after residents cast their votes, they’re still waiting for word on who will be their next governor. Connecticut’s secretary of state said she can’t tell the media who the next governor is, even though she did just that unofficially on Wednesday. Susan Bysiewicz, a Democrat, unofficially declared Democrat Dan Malloy the likely governor-elect on the day after the election, but now, it seems, vote tally snags in Bridgeport is preventing her verifying her own prediction. She spoke with CBS 2’s Lou Young in Hartford on Thursday afternoon. “The numbers that...

    Thursday was the first full day of work for the transition team of Dannel P. Malloy, the Democratic who is certain he was the winner in the Connecticut governor’s race. It was also the first full day of work for the transition team of Thomas C. Foley, the Republican candidate, who claimed victory in the same race. Clearly, one of these men is going to be terribly disappointed. But when and how that will become clear is still, well, unclear.... Sometime on Thursday, the state’s top election official, Susan Bysiewicz, the Democratic secretary of state, is supposed to announce the...

    HARTFORD, Conn. - Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz on Tuesday urged a federal appeals court to reverse a recent decision that struck down Connecticut's public campaign financing program, saying it is too late to change the rules for candidates with an August primary looming. Bysiewicz, a potential Democratic candidate for governor, said if the public funding is not made available, there won't be enough time for a gubernatorial candidate to raise close to the $4 million in private money that candidates in the 2006 race for governor had each raised.-snip- "Time is of the essence," said Bysiewicz, adding how...
