Senator McKinney’s Statement on Governor Malloy’s Reimbursement of People Magazine for Gift

May 2, 2013

State Senate Minority Leader John McKinney (R-Fairfield): “As I said yesterday, the governor was in violation of our ethics laws and needed to make amends. He has begun that process by reimbursing People Magazine for the gift he accepted, but he and his staff continue to set a bad example for elected officials and state government by defending his actions. His dismissive attitude toward state ethics laws sets a dangerous precedent. I look forward to hearing the opinion of the Office of State Ethics on this matter.”
