NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The government’s key witness told the federal jury Monday that he tried his hardest to hide the true intent of former Gov. John G. Rowland’s involvement with his wife’s congressional campaign.

Brian Foley, who pleaded guilty in March to campaign finance violations, testified that after a meeting with the former governor in September 2011, he brainstormed ways to get around reporting his involvement with the campaign to the Federal Elections Commission.

“We came to conclusion he could be very helpful with the campaign, but we were concerned about the negatives,” Foley testified in U.S. District Court on Monday.

After that first meeting, “I came up with the idea that if I was to hire Mr. Rowland for Apple he would then be supportive of the campaign and it would solve that problem,” Foley testified.
