UPDATED WITH BOUGHTON'S ENTIRE REPORTS FROM THE 2007 CAMPAIGN CYCLE.

DID BOUGHTON GET ANOTHER BUNDLED ILLEGAL CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTION FROM GALANTE?


Make sure to match up the names behind the bundled illegal campaign contributions Galante made to Boughton's People over Politics PAC from Oct 2003 with his Re-Election report from April 2003. You'll notice something VERY interesting, which includes one of Boughon's donors who been convicted of tax evasion charges and order to stay from anyone involved in the Galante case.

For more details, read my in-depth report.

Do your part and help see how far Boughton's rabbit hole goes.

UPDATE: Tips and pointers are flying into my email box and we're doing everything we can to connect the dots and report back as quickly as possible.

If you're from the media, when emailing me, please include your contact information so I can call you back.

UPDATE 2: Over 800 HatCityBLOG readers have downloaded copies of Boughton's re-election reports. Keep up the great work!

UPDATE 3: Keep the comments and emails coming. Plenty of questionable contributions ranging from a newspaper publisher and developers, to a member of the Democratic Town Committee and wife of a candidate who's running for Constable.


Okay, lets do this...

I guess just about everyone wants to take a VERY close look at Mayor Boughton's campaign finances right now. I'm getting bombarded with email requests so instead of emailing people individually, I'm going to make things easy...real easy.

I'm going to use this post as a depository for every one of Mayor Bougthon's campaign finance reports. This will be a work in progress because presenting this information will take a GREAT deal of scanning and uploading.

Take note of any contributions from PACs in 2003 when you're looking over everything. From what I've noticed this far, according to his Re-Elect Mayor Mark finance statement (filed Oct 8 2003) Boughton received a "contribution" from People over Politics PAC in the amount of 2,500 on 09.30.03 (UPDATE: I had the dates mixed up. Galante bundled the money in October and this transaction happened in September).

Also, in Boughton's 01.07.04 statement (period covered 10.22.03-12.31.03) Boughton received a "contribution" from the 24th District Republcian Committee for $250.00. This was Cappiello's PAC, which according to the Courant, he "received 15 checks for $1,000 in October 2002 written by people who received cash reimbursements originating from Galante."

Now, you have to remember, I'm just scratching the surface here and I found these two entries just by glancing two reports real quick. Reading these reports isn't easy and it even gets harder when you look at the individual donations. Basically, you have to know the people who gave donations to Boughton in order to get a clearer picture of what's happening and there are only a few people in Danbury that can connect all the dots (you know who you are).

If you find ANYTHING interesting or worth noting, please share with everyone. You can either email me at hatcityblog@yahoo.com or place a comment (I'll allow anonymous comments for this post if you don't want your identity revealed).

Let's work together to expose the ugly truth.


Boughton acknowledged Friday that one of his political actions committees, People Over Politics, got money from associates of Galante in 2003.

Sources said that eight, $1,000 checks from either Galante employees, friends or associates were donated to People Over Politics on Oct. 26, 2003. Some of them were then reimbursed or told that the donations would help Galante's trash hauling business, which is based in Danbury.

On September 26, 2007, ten plaintiffs filed suit in response to an arrest of aday laborers at a public park in Danbury, Connecticut. Plaintiffs amended their complaint on November 26, 2007.

The amended complaint states that plaintiffs sought to remedy the continued discriminatory and unauthorized enforcement of federal immigration laws against the Latino residents of the City of Danbury by Danbury's mayor and its police department.

Plaintiffs allege that the arrests violated their Fourth Amendment rights and the Connecticut Constitution because defendants conducted the arrests without valid warrants, in the absence of exigent circumstances, and without probable cause to believe that plaintiffs were engaged in unlawful activity. In addition, plaintiffs allege that defendants improperly stopped, detained, investigated, searched and arrested plaintiffs. Plaintiffs also allege that defendants violated their Fourteenth Amendment rights when they intentionally targeted plaintiffs, and arrested and detained them on the basis of their race, ethnicity and perceived national origin. Plaintiffs raise First Amendment, Due Process and tort claims.

Plaintiffs request declaratory relief, damages and attorneys fees.
