This person gets it.
I have to offer a h/t to hatcityblog.blogspot.com for their in depth and continuous coverage of this scandal - and clearly identifying the real public demon (apart from the thug Galante) and that is Mark Boughton. And now Boughton's henchman/chief of hate-mongering Machlachlan is running for state senate to further poison Danbury's reputation. Here is another corrupt tool looking to infiltrate the Capitol - another hate-mongering, fear-mongering dirty-handed, corrupt politician seeking to replace Cappiello (who looks like a saint comparatively).

You mean that chief of staff McLaughlin who reportedly turns red-faced and loses his temper and ...(I know, I know...keep my mouth shut).

Back to the comment.
Now onto Cappiello.

I hate to sound like I am defending Cappiello here, but I am intimately familiar with campaign finance at the state senate level and have been a treasurer many times, so I must provide insight. I would indeed be shocked if Cappiello knew of any of this when the donation was recorded. Senators rarely do more than skim who gives to them (some don't even know how much money they have, let alone who gave)and I have only seen a few who really scrutinize who did give, but those folks are really looking for who didn't give and pay a lot more attention to who gave to their opponents.

Now that being said...once the Galante sh!t hit the fan, a smart politician - and certainly one with aspirations for higher office - would go over all of their past filings with a fine toothed comb, uncover anything suspicious, and bring it to the attention of the proper authorities.

Instead, Cappiello is shocked, Boughton claims stupidity, and DeLuca...well we all know what DeLuca did.

Oh, did I mention that, unlike Cappiello, Boughton to this date STILL hasn't given back Galante's dirty money?

Tick-tock, tick tock...it will be September before you know it and the REAL interesting Galante trial begins.

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.
