HARTFORD, Conn. – The state Democratic Party is asking the Federal Election Commission to allow it to use funds donated to its federal account to pay for a mailer promoting Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s re-election bid.

Neil Reiff, a lawyer for the Connecticut Democratic State Central Committee, asked the FEC on Oct. 1  to “determine whether the attached mailing qualifies as a ‘federal election activity’.”

Reiff even makes it clear from the outset that the mailer isn’t intended to promote any candidates running for federal office.

“For purposes of this request, the Commission should assume that the requested mailings will not reference any candidate for federal offices,” Reiff wrote to the FEC.

    Isn’t politics wonderful. By hook or crook. Lets declare the Governor the winner now. Saves time and money.

    Interesting idea. Anybody keeping track of who is paying for all the advertising for Foley, including the ads that openly support Foley and the ones that just criticize the governor.
