HARTFORD, Conn. – The head of Connecticut’s election enforcement agency warned lawmakers Monday that a piece of legislation they’re considering would change how political parties operate in Connecticut.

The proposed changes, which no one was willing to claim credit for Monday, come as the State Elections Enforcement Commission is waiting to find out if the court will allow them to move forward with enforcing a subpoena against the Connecticut Democratic Party in connection with spending in Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s 2014 re-election campaign.

“Why was this language added?” Michael Brandi, head of the State Elections Enforcement Agency, asked members of the General Administration and Elections Committee Monday. “Why was it done at this time?”

No one had an answer.
