Republican state lawmakers say they believe federal authorities are trying to determine whether any Connecticut House Republicans were pressured to use a particular company for their political campaign mailings.
The chief of staff to the Connecticut House Republicans resigned Thursday, a day after the FBI interviewed GOP representatives regarding a vendor used for campaign mailings.
Connecticut U.S. Attorney Deirdre M. Daly has informed former House Speaker Christopher Donovan that the criminal investigation surrounding his failed 2012 congressional campaign has been closed and her office will not seek to charge the Meriden Democrat with any crime.
The new head of the FBI in Connecticut said Wednesday that investigating public corruption is a top priority for her in a state where a wave of scandals brought down numerous officials years ago.
Mike Clark was a young FBI agent when he came to this long-struggling western Connecticut city, chasing a corrupt mayor through the streets and hauling him off to prison.
Throughout the scandal, Donovan consistently said he had no knowledge of the conspiracy, but the matter still hampered his campaign.
In a written statement, Donovan said he looks forward to "continuing my efforts to advocate for a fair and just society."
