Former Gov. Used Show for Political Gain

7-9-14
 
That's what federal prosecutors plan to tell a jury about former Connecticut Governor John Rowland who hosted  show on CBS owned WTIC-AM up until he was indicted. The Hartford Courant reports the government says Rowland took money to use his show to bully political opponents. Prosecutors allege Rowland took the money from former congressional candidate Lisa Wilson-Foley and her husband and financial backer, Brian Foley, and went on the air and attacked Foley's opponents. Rowland was hired by WTIC after being convicted of corruption back in 2004.
