HARTFORD, Conn. – Gov. Dannel P. Malloy defended the $1.4 million in pay raises he gave to his political appointees the day after Christmas.

At a Capitol press conference, Monday when a reporter pointed out that he could have announced the pay increases before the November election, Malloy replied “no one ever asked.”

The $1.4 million for the 3 to 12 percent pay increases was included in the 2015 budget, which is currently running a $31.6 million deficit.

“No one ever asked the question,” Malloy said. “I had four debates. I had numerous opportunities to answer questions. I had press conferences, was available to the press on a daily basis, no one ever asked.”

    ‘No one ever asked’. Such a poor excuse one can assume the 12%er spin doctors were away for the holidays.

    $1.4 million? Pocket change compared to the $115 million he wanted to throw at Bridgewater Associates.
