Follow the money trail: The Boughton 2011 files

"We get thousands of checks from thousands of people and we just wouldn't have any way of knowing something like that is happening."

Mayor Boughton's response to his acceptance of James Galante alleged bundled campaign contributions


You didn't think I'd forget to grab a copy of our mayor's campaign finance statements?

As we approach Election Day, I thought it would be great to post a copy of our city's last honest man's finance statements.

When it comes to Mark Boughton, it's always important to show who's kissing the emperor's ring who donates to the mayor campaign as it usually reveals quite a bit about other matters such as:
  • Additional illegal bundled campaign contributions from James Galante


  • Democratic town committee members who donated to Boughton's campaign,


  • An family-owned immigrant newspaper that has donated (along with immediate family members) over 600 dollars in in-kind advertising contributions in late 2005 (NOTE: although the in-kind advertising contribution was received on 10.10.05, Boughton's campaign did not disclose the contribution until after the election against then Democratic mayoral candidate Dean Esposito on 01.10.06). The same business donated over 1,400 to Boughton during the 2007 campaign cycle (including 1,100 after the ICE ACCESS program was introduced in during the October Common Council meeting)


  • Massive contributions from developers (including the infamous Dan Bertram of BRT) and well as


  • Contributions from some of the top anti-immigrant, racist, xenophobes in the area.


  • Contribution from the main players who contributed to the worst episode in the history of Danbury: The James Dyer scandal of the 1980s.

Help follow the money trail and connect the dots...

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.
