HARTFORD, Conn. – House Speaker Brendan Sharkey and the legislature’s Black and Puerto Rican Caucus appeared with Gov. Dannel P. Malloy Wednesday, calling his opponent, Tom Foley, “a fake” and out-of-touch with urban communities.

Malloy, a first term Democrat, is competing with Foley, whom he narrowly defeated in the 2010 election. The legislature’s Black and Puerto Rican Caucus and House leadership appeared in support of Malloy at an event in the Legislative Office Building in Hartford.

“When I look at the agenda and message from Tom Foley there’s only one word that describes him in my mind and that is ‘fake.’ He is a fake,” Sharkey told reporters in a conference room. “He has no concept of how to actually run the state of Connecticut. The things he is putting out are—if I were him and I were his campaign, I’d be embarrassed.”

    What’s truly sad is that those piliticos representing many of the state’s least fortunate residents are enthusiastically supporting policies that discourage job creation for those who need jobs the most. Raising taxes and job security for state employees benefits public unions, but not those living in the state’s welfare cities.
